Is Tobacco Actually Addictive?

Interestingly enough nicotine does show promise regarding enhanced brain function and possible help in disease prevention with Parkinsons as an example. There are a few positive studies out on the subject.
I'm probably like SeeTheLight- I started to use tobacco in the mid 1970's when I  smoked "roll-your-own" loose tobacco (Duma halfzware shag).  Ten fags would contain less tobacco than a single store bought and a 25 g pouch would last two weeks to a month.  I never became addicted, but to this day, when I go on holidays, I will buy a pouch.

For me, now is pipes and cigars.   With an occasional bowl of tobacco a couple times per year, and a weekly cigar in the summer.  

Medically, I'm a "non-smoker" (that should stir a discussion.)
