Various forms of tobacco appear in nearly all games of the Fallout series.
Tobacco, for all its health issues either smoking or chewing, never saw the widespread vilification it saw in reality. In fact, cigarettes were never banned or heavily regulated from advertising, do not come with a surgeon general warning and was a general mainstay of modern culture in the Fallout world. The popularity of tobacco was so great that cartons of full cigarettes (while still relatively rare) can be found 200 years after the Great War. Tobacco has been mentioned or seen in the Fallout series in varying forms. In the first two games -Fallout - Fallout 2— tobacco was limited to text only mentions and was never seen as an actual item. In Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, cigarettes have become an item in several forms and people can be seen smoking periodically in their day to day schedule, however, the player could not partake themselves. In both Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 the brand of cigarettes and brand of cigars can be used to track down Benny and Conrad Kellogg, respectively.
Fallout: New Vegas is the only game to allow the player to use tobacco in the form of chewing tobacco which can then subsequently lead to tobacco addiction.

Coyote tobacco chew
Harvested from wild tobacco plants common to the Mojave Desert, coyote tobacco chew is a reinvigorating plant that can be consumed raw to relieve stress and reduce sleepiness, thanks to the high concentrations of nicotine inside plant leaves. Before the Great War, it was commonly used for medicinal purposes, especially among Native Americans. In more recent times, it became a favorite of wastelanders for staying awake on the trail.
