Not necessarily. For most, yes it is psychologically addictive but there's some evidence of tolerance, which is only found in physiological addictions. However, it's been found only in people who smoke very high doses for a long time. But because things aren't easy, there's no agreement on this as other studies found there was no tolerance. In sum, because so many studies have found both results, it's viewed as generally psychologically addictive until you smoke at very high doses for a long time, where it MAY become physiologically addictive as well. For these same people, they MAY experience withdrawl-like symptoms, also characteristic of physiological addictions.
