A sudden decrease in the use of nicotine containing products, which was used daily for at least several weeks, can cause Nicotine Withdrawal Syndrome (American Psychiatric Association, 1994: 244). The mental symptoms of the withdrawal syndrome includes depressed mood; irritability, frustration, anger, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, restlessness or impatience. The aim of this placebo-controlled double-blind study was to determine the effectiveness of a homoeopathic complex, compared to homoeopathic similimum treatment in the management of tobacco addiction. The complex was based on the selection of those homoeopathic remedies whose symptomology most accurately matched the symptoms associated with smoking cessation.
