I think you might be talking about nicotine and this can range from 0.05% to 0.5% nicotine. Now the effects of nicotine can be debated even more. I notice the nicotine significantly more with shisha tobacco rather than cigarettes. I do believe it is still addicting, but less habit forming. When I hookah I have to set it up and clean it, but with a cigarette all i have to do is reach for another in the pack. Hajo also posted a link about a book that debates the misconceptions of nicotine, but its rather expensive for a bit of light reading.
