I'll propose another reason why people get addicted to smoking:

Nicotine is an anti-depressant. I suspect that there are other psycho-active chemicals in tobacco that have similar effects. I know that vaping didn't "do it" for Bob, but others that's all they need.

I'll lay odds the people who started smoking and didn't get addicted weren't dealing with depression.

I wish that the medical community would look at people who are addicted to various chemicals and - instead of pleasure-shaming them - would look at what problems those chemicals might be addressing.
