No: They may give you a high, but no they don't treat adhd and you wind up with a nicotine addiction. Stimulants and other medications can treat adhd, as well as other nonpharmacologic interventions.

NO: Cigarettes are a good way to get a tobacco addiction, copd, several different cancers and a few other things. For adhd ask your dr to titrate a stimulant up to a dose that reduces symptoms. Get a good workup. Even grownups can continue childhood adhd.

No: Cigarettes are not a good way to treat anything. Help with structuring and organizing your time, as well as keeping to a plan will be better. A combination of therapy and medication is often helpful as well.
