Mathematical Models for the Dynamics of Tobacco Use, Recovery, and Relapse

A general epidemiological model is presented to describe the dynamics of drug use among adolescents, specifically tobacco use. Specific models are derived by considering other factors that have been identified to have an effect on the growing trend of tobacco use. The factors considered are peer pressure, relapse, counseling and treatment.
