How can tobacco affect your work or daily activities?

Although tobacco is addictive, it is not likely to have major impacts on how you function in your daily life. Unlike alcohol or other drugs, your ability to work, drive or do tasks using your hands (fine motor skills) are not likely to be impaired. If you have used lots of tobacco in a short period of time, it may make you feel nauseous or dizzy. If this happens, try to take a break before returning to work or other activities.

Over a long period, it may affect your ability to work and interact with others. Some of these changes may be more noticeable than others. You may find yourself having cravings throughout the day or wanting to leave to have a smoke.
