Quit Smoking


by Arslan Ahmad 10 Sep 2020

First let’s read what people think about cigarettes, although they are not this simple,

Cigarettes are a small roll of permeable paper containing a bar of chopped up tobacco leaves. These little poison rolls are designed so that the tobacco can be smoked, just by lighting the cigarette and breathing in the smoke.

At the mouth end of the cigarette, there is another layer of porous paper usually known as the tipping paper and a filter. The tipping paper is designed to allow fresh air to penetrate when the smoker inhales. The filter cools the smoke down and reduces the flow of smoke out of the cigarette.

The strength, taste and intensity depend upon:

  • The type of tobacco leaf that is used.
  • Where on the tobacco plant it is taken from?
  • The way the leaf is cured.
  • How the leaf is processed.

Not that these factors make it any safer. Cigarettes are much big of a deal actually. Read on!



Cigarette or tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 different harmful chemical compounds which are present in all forms, solid, liquid and gas.

Tar, carbon monoxide and nicotine are not the only ones responsible for the toxic effects associated with smoking and passive smoking. There are at least 60 other chemicals in smoke which have been identified as carcinogens and 30 identified metals, some of which are even radioactive.

Here are a few names of the silent killers (chemical compounds in a cigarette)

  • Cigarettes Benzene
  • Benzo(a)pyrene
  • Ammonia
  • Formaldehyde
  • Hydrogen cyanide
  • Acrolein
  • Dimethyl nitrosamine
  • Non-nicotine alkaloids
  • Aromatic amines
  • Aromatic metals
  • Tobacco specific nitrosamines
  • Hydrogen cyanide
  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Aldehydes
  • N-nitrosamines
  • Ketones
  • Quinine
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

And now, its time to find where all these compounds are found that we inhale.

  • Cigarettes Carbon monoxide is emitted from vehicle exhaust
  • Arsenic and DDT are used in insect poison
  • Hydrogen cyanide was used in the gas chambers in World War II and is currently used in rat poison
  • Acetone is paint stripper and is a component of nail polish remover
  • Ammonia is used in household cleaning products
  • Butane and methanol are found in fuel
  • Cadmium is a metal used in car batteries
  • Phenol is used in fertilisers
  • Naphthalene is a carcinogen used in mothballs
  • Formaldehyde is used as a tissue and specimen preservative commonly found in science labs
cigarette reality
Carbon monoxide

Incomplete combustion of carbon-containing substances produces carbon monoxide.

Carbon monoxide causes damage to the lungs by depriving the body of oxygen. Smokers can have as much as 10 times as much carbon monoxide in their bloodstream as non-smokers. The end is death if the intake isn’t controlled.


Tar is a mixture of the compounds in cigarette smoke which condensate from a gas to a solid in the lungs to form a sticky brown substance, this is the cigarette smoke condensate. It is made of nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and a wide range of other chemicals.

The tar that remains in the lung and gradually causes cells to die. Some of the cells that are ruined are cilia. Over time, the loss of this cell function can lead to emphysema.

Here you can read a lot more about the effects of smoking on your body.


A cigarette is simply a blend of deadly chemical combined to cause death!

The reason why vaping is thought to be a 95% safer alternative is that it doesn’t have these harmful side-effects. We hope every smoker out there understands the price of life they’re paying on every puff of every cigarette.

“Put it out before it puts you out.”

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
