ICD 10 Code F17.2

Nicotine dependence

2017 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code

A disorder of regulation of nicotine use arising from repeated or continuous use of that substance. Its central feature is a strong internal drive to use nicotine, manifested by impaired ability to control use, increasing priority given to nicotine use over other activities, and persistence of use despite harm and adverse consequences. Individuals with nicotine dependence often develop tolerance and withdrawal symptoms. The constellation of behaviours suggesting dependence is evident over a period of at least 12 months if use is episodic, or over a period of at least one month if use is continuous (daily or almost daily).
