Cerebral stroke is among the leading causes of deaths worldwide, and the main cause of disability among adults. Cigarette smoking is an important, independent and modifiable risk factor of cerebral stroke. There are approximately 50 milion stroke survivors worldwide, and more than 5 million people annually die of stroke. It has been established that more than one fourth of cases of cerebral stroke may be related with cigarette smoking. With respect to non-smokers, the largest group at risk are middle-age smokers. The relative risk of stroke increases with the number of cigarettes smoked, depends on the type of stroke, and does not clearly depend on gender. There is increasing evidence that passive smoking is also a risk factor of stroke. After cessation of smoking, within two years, the relative risk of stroke significantly decreases, and after five years reaches the value observed among non-smokers. This confirmed the cause-effect relationship between cigarette smoking and undergoing a stroke. Addiction to nicotine is a disease which is life threatening, the treatment of which should be undertaken by physicians of all specialties. Neurologists should also contribute to the dissemination of anti-nicotine interventions in patients who had undergone cerebral stroke. In these patients it is necessary to introduce anti-nicotine interventions into the programmes of secondary prophylaxis and rehabilitation procedure. An intensification of actions and acceleration of the desired changes in this area are also necessary. Key words: cerebral stroke, tobacco smoking, nicotine addiction
