why smoking tobacco was so popular among Europeans after they learned of tobacco from Indians?
is it true that they even thought of tobacco as a healthy herb to smoke and was good for the body? what they thought of the nicotine and how it was healthy ? and how long this lasted? I heard that doctors and hospitals were even prescribing cigarettes for patients in the early 1900s ? is that true? where and why?

It was considered healthy so everybody did it and then they were all hooked on nicotine so didn't give it up.

Nicotine is one of the most addictive substances around. It also is a stimulant. What did they have at that time as a stimulant? They had tea, coffee, maybe chocolate and tobacco.
