Cigarette smoking amongst women is a major issue in daily clinical practice and in public health. Tobacco is the cause of gender specific diseases. From a psychosocial point of view, female smokers tend to be emotionally vulnerable and relationship sensitive. The risk of weight gain and depression must be anticipated and assessed throughout the smoking cessation process. Professionals involved in smoking cessation must be aware of these somatic and psychosocial specificities in order to be able to offer efficient smoking cessation treatments. Public health strategies must also be developed worldwide to control the expected dramatic impact of the female tobacco epidemic.
