HABIT is a multidisciplinary research group in the School of Public Health, University of Queensland, with a focus on translational research on interventions that promote behavioural change, particularly related to addictive behaviours, such as tobacco smoking. Addiction to alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs are among the most common behavioural disorders in developed societies and contribute substantially to the burden of disease in Australia and worldwide.
