Trouble lié au tabagisme : Évaluation et diagnostic

Notions essentielles

  • Le DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) est utilisé pour poser un diagnostic formel. Les catégories de la version DSM-IV-TR concernant l'abus et la dépendance à la nicotine ont été remplacées dans la version DSM-5 par une catégorie globale intitulée « Tobacco use disorder » (Trouble lié au tabagisme). Ce changement sert à éviter la confusion entre dépendance et toxicomanie.
  • Les personnes qui sont évaluées pour un trouble lié au tabagisme devraient aussi être évaluées pour d'autres troubles liés à l'usage de substances et pour des troubles de santé mentale.

Évaluation

  • Le degré de dépendance au tabac peut être évalué au moyen d'outils comme le test Fagerström Test for Nicotine Dependence[VS1]  et le calcul du nombre de paquets-année. Cette formule calcule la valeur numérique de l'exposition au tabac durant une vie. Ce résultat devrait figurer très visiblement sur le dossier du patient. Voici la formule : nombre de cigarettes par jour, multiplié par le nombre d'années de tabagisme, puis divisé par 20 = nombre de paquets-année
  • La personne devrait être évaluée pour d'autres troubles liés à l'usage de substances et pour des troubles de santé mentale.
  • Déterminer où le client se situe par rapport aux « étapes du changement ».
  • Appliquer les techniques d'entrevues motivationnelles (site Web en anglais).

Interesting... I have been smoking a pipe ONLY for about 50 years. I smoke the equivalent of perhaps two (2) cigarettes per day, never more, often less. I enjoy smoking and at the level I smoke the beneficial effects of nicotine use far outweigh the negative side effects of tar etc. A pipe is far less damaging according to life insurance statistics and I am considered to be a non-smoker by my insurance company.

As is so often the case and was strongly exhibited in the use of alcohol, there are positive effects given by nicotine, as long as you do not over dose. Nicotine has beneficial effects, especially on the brain. It improves general cognition, it reduces the chance of Alzheimer's and Parkinsons and it reduces the amount of damage that occurs in a haemorrhagic stroke. If one overdoses then the bad effects dominate and can even kill. When used properly the good effects are predominant, as in my case. I have had three haemorrhagic strokes and two of them caused no apparent focal neurological damage after 24 hours. The second stroke was fairly large and has caused a very pure and mild amount of anomic aphasia. In many people with similar bleeds the amount of damage would have been devastating. Did my smoking protect me? There is no way to measure that but I suspect it did.

I am not addicted, but then I am the type of person that does not addict to anything, even the very most addictive drugs, such as benzodiazepines. I do not drink. I do not like drugs with only the exception of my smoking which I do only very occasionally and can do without by simply putting my pipe down and walking away. I do not always take it with me when leaving my home nor do I care if I leave it. The cancer risk for me is about the same as living in Vancouver as a non smoker.
