Pediatrics Breastfeeding contraindications; Alcohol and Smoking!

what exactly are the drugs of abuse contraindicated in Breastfeeding?

MTB 3 on page 339(pediatrics) says nicotine and alcohol are absolute contraindications


while on page 393 (obstetrics seems similar to above page number too!!) says drugs of abuse except tobacco and alcohol..


which is correct please?..

Cos tobacco contains nicotine too...or has that changed?..and alcohol is still alcohol..
