Worldwide 1 billion adults currently smoke cigarettes. This is an underestimate of total tobacco exposure worldwide. Tobacco harms the heath, the treasury, and the spirit of India. Tobacco is the only legal drug that kills many of its users when used exactly as intended by manufacturers1. Complacency in the face of the tobacco epidemic will ensure the tobacco industry continues to run roughshod over the lives of India's citizens and ensure that tobacco's death toll will grow with each passing year. Tobacco smoking is one of the important public health problem in India and the prevalence smoking among adult’s males is high. Despite numerous community interventions and government legislation against smoking, cessation or prevention of tobacco smoking is still challengeable4.
