Only thing singular in prior phrase is "The use of" . both instances of 'it' can refer to "use".

while choosing this option I eliminated for some reason. structure "to substitute X for Y" is maintained with both X and Y are noun. The point you have raised seems legit to me.

I think its good if some expert can help us out here.

A - hold
B- Meaning changed, addiction is mentioned but the addiction of what is not mentioned. Clearly it should be tobacco addiction but not mentioned here
C- usage of would is wrong, "should" is needed here
D- same as B
E- same as c

The winner is A.
