Use the nicotine dependence test!
The Fagerström test helps you assess the level of cigarette dependence and document the indications for taking medication for nicotine withdrawal.
The higher the Fagerström score, the more intense is the patient's physical dependence on nicotine.
This test should be used only as a guidance; it is not a substitute for professional medical advice.
The Fagerström Test for Nicotine Dependence is a standard instrument for assessing the intensity of this physical addiction.
