The three main reasons for any addiction are ignorance, ego and dependence. If you ask people as to why do they smoke, some would say that they were ignorant about its side effects (ignorance), while others would say that doing so gave them a status in the society (ego). And the rest once they began, they cannot leave it and are now dependant on it (dependence).

The treatment of ignorance is based on education the principle of hearing (suno), listening (samjho), understanding (jaano) and action full of wisdom (karo).

Ego can only be treated by proper counseling. The principles of counseling are well described in Bhagavad Gita and involve 18 sessions over a period of time.

Treatment of dependence involves early detoxification followed by counseling and education.
