Despite the dramatic increase of tobacco smoking via waterpipe in Arab societies, and the apparent potential of waterpipe use to produce tobacco-related disease, little is known about the pharmacological effects of this method of tobacco smoking, particularly its ability to support dependence. This review focuses on recent waterpipe research and current theories of dependence in an attempt to identify patterns of waterpipe use and features likely to reveal dependence. Recent work indicates that… 
Interventions for waterpipe smoking cessation.
TLDR
The primary outcome of interest was abstinence from tobacco use, measured at six months post-cessation or longer, regardless of whether abstinence was biochemically verified.
Correlates of nicotine dependence among adolescent waterpipe smokers.
TLDR
Depressive symptoms, lower self-esteem, and having at least one sibling who smokes a waterpipe were associated with the presence of ND symptoms, while enrollment in public schools, smoking a water pipe ≥30min per session, and believing that cigarette smoking is harmful to health wereassociated with endorsement of a higher number of ND Symptoms.
Waterpipe tobacco smoking: The critical need for cessation treatment.
TLDR
Waterpipe-specific cessation programs that address unique features of waterpipe smoking and characteristics and motivations of users who want to quit are needed.
Waterpipe smoking patterns and symptoms of nicotine dependence: The Waterpipe Dependence in Lebanese Youth Study.
INTRODUCTION Waterpipe typically is smoked intermittently over long smoking sessions. Waterpipe is addictive and its users show symptoms of nicotine dependence (ND). This study examined the risk of

TLDR
Waterpipe smoking is likely to be associated with much of the harmful effects of cigarette smoking, is addictive, and can serve as a bridge to cigarettes, so waterpipe-specific interventions and policies are needed to curb the global waterpipe epidemic.
Assessment of tobacco dependence in waterpipe smokers in Egypt.
TLDR
The overall findings suggest that waterpipe smokers exhibit many of the same features of nicotine dependency attributed to cigarette smokers.
Waterpipe Tobacco Smoking: A Less Harmful Alternative?
TLDR
Government, policy makers and public health agents should consider waterpipe tobacco smoking as a growing public health concern that warrants attention, particularly in regions of high prevalence.
The waterpipe: time for action.
TLDR
A timely public health and policy action is needed in order to curb the emerging waterpipe smoking epidemic.
Determinants of waterpipe use amongst adolescents in Northern Sweden: a survey of use pattern, risk perception, and environmental factors
TLDR
A high use of waterpipe in a select group of students in northern Sweden is reported, adding the importance of looking at socioecological determinants of use, including peer pressure and exposure to media marketing, as well as mental health among users.
The effects of hookah/waterpipe smoking on general health and the cardiovascular system
TLDR
In this review of literature, insights are provided on the negative health effects of hookah in general, with a focus on what is known regarding its impact on the cardiovascular system.

Standardizing questionnaire items for the assessment of waterpipe tobacco use in epidemiological studies.
TLDR
As the monitoring of waterpipe smoking is in its infancy, the development of consensus measures should facilitate the initiation of effective surveillance that can guide public health response to this emerging epidemic.
Factors related to frequency of narghile (waterpipe) use: the first insights on tobacco dependence in narghile users.
TLDR
Two main domains of a tobacco dependence syndrome likely to be relevant toNarghile are revealed; the first reflects the effects of nicotine contained in narghile tobacco, and is not very different from what is seen with other tobacco products, and the second is unique to Narghile and is related mainly to its social dimension.
Measures and models of nicotine dependence: positive reinforcement.
TLDR
It is argued that measurement of vulnerability indicators, in addition to dependence indicators, may add to the predictive validity of assessments carried out in early career tobacco users, especially where there is limited evidence of established dependence.
Tobacco smoking using a waterpipe: a re-emerging strain in a global epidemic
TLDR
More scientific documentation and careful analysis is required before the spread of waterpipe use and its health effects can be understood, and empirically guided treatment and public policy strategies can be implemented.
Cognitive and social learning models of drug dependence: implications for the assessment of tobacco dependence in adolescents.
TLDR
This paper focuses on cognitive and social-learning models of drug dependence and the implications of these models for novel assessment instruments, focusing on Mark Goldman's model of drug expectancies, Albert Bandura'smodel of self-efficacy, Thomas Wills's models of stress and coping and Stephen Tiffany's cognitive-processing model ofdrug urges and cravings.
Tobacco “chippers” —individual differences in tobacco dependence
TLDR
Tobacco “chippers”' smoking behavior challenges classical theories of dependence; further research is needed on the factors that may protect CHs from addiction.
Adapting smoking cessation interventions for developing countries: a model for the Middle East.
TLDR
There is a great need to develop and disseminate effective cessation interventions in low-income countries and successful interventions will contribute to a culturally sensitive and sustainable regional tobacco control infrastructure in the Middle East.
Beliefs and attitudes related to narghile (waterpipe) smoking among university students in Syria.
TLDR
The rise in narghile smoking as a trendy social habit appears to be occurring despite considerable appreciation of its potential health risks, according to a cross-sectional survey administered to university students in Aleppo.
Measuring the emergence of tobacco dependence: the contribution of negative reinforcement models.
TLDR
This review summarizes negative reinforcement in general and presents four current negative reinforcement models that emphasize withdrawal, classical conditioning, self-medication and opponent-processes that are an important part of future successful tobacco dependence measurement, prevention and treatment strategies.
Tobacco use by university students, Lebanon, 2001.
TLDR
Regression analyses showed that males, those of non-Lebanese origin, pursuing undergraduate degrees, performing risky weight control measures and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol had increased odds of smoking cigarettes.
