is it healthier to smoke really weak cigarettes?
i recently switched to smoking cigarettes with 0.1mg tar and 0.1mg nicotene.

this should make it healthier or not? and less addictive?
Additional Details
but if the amount of nicotene in each cigarette is 1/8 of what i used to smoke shouldnt it be less addictive?

No. You just draw harder to get the same hit.
Stop smoking. You know you want to.

Why not stop altogether?

That's the best way to wean yourself off. Next try smoking the cheapest most disgusting brand they have in ultralights.

It is healthier to give up smoking.

Low tar cigarettes still carry the same risks ans normal cigarettes. Do not be fooled. There are no such things as healthy cigarettes.

BadBeast is pretending to be a
Really weak Cigarettes can actually be worse for you than normal ones, as you have to drag harder on them to get enough nicotine.
Dragging harder makes them burn hotter, so delivering more Tar than normal. Remember, its not the nicotine that is harmful, its the tar.
Nicotine is just super addictive.
Untipped hand rolled cigarettes deliver the least amount of tar, and toxic chemicals into your system. Tailor mades have allsorts of "extras" added to them, like salt petre to help maintain an even burn.

dr kevin
no its not.to satisfy your does of nicotine you will smoke more cigarettes.so more toxic cancerous fumes to your lungs.
tar is an irritant so a cigarette with less tar wont iritate you lungs that much and the fumes will distribute itself throughout the lungs and this put you at a higher risk for cancer.
but i advised you to stop smoking because cigarrettes ,weak or strong, are not healthy at all

An avalanche start with a pebble.
A great oak tree begins from a seed.
Cancer starts from one negative cell.
Malaria starts from one little mosquito bite.
Take care and best wishes always
No smoke without fire and fire can devastate everything in seconds.
Why take chances.

Healthier? Since when has smoking cigarettes been healthy at all? Less damaging...sure!


It will be very slightly easier for you to quit but they are just as damaging if not even more so because you will be inclined to take bigger drags even if you don't intend to.

Unless you are leading up to quitting there is no benefit whatsoever to "light" smokes and even then the benefit is tiny.

As long as you smoke the same amount as you did before, it should be healthier.

It does not work for me. I switched to a lighter cigarette 5 years ago and went from smoking 10 cigarettes to smoking a pack a day. I still smoke these light cigarettes because I prefer the taste.

Just stop it.
Hope this spooky "helps":

Carry On..!
I don't like using the word healthier in conjunction with cigarettes but yes. Low tar cigs are a healthier option so long as you do not increase the number of cigs you smoke every day to make up for the loss of the hit gained from stronger ones. My boss even went from full tar to low tar and eventually quit because he slowly reduced his need for the kick. He didn't mean to quit but it just happened.

Hmmm. I switch between stong and lights depending on how my lungs feel that day. and they seem to treat your lungs better. but i do remember an advert ages ago saying that lights damage your lungs just as much. but to be honest these silk cut purples you must be smoking arent even real cigarettes just air you may as well stop.

it wont make it less addictive, but it might make it a tiny bit healthier, providing you don't start smoking more cigarettes in a day just because your not getting as much nicotine.

Try Electric cigarettes. It's like smoking a cigarette but without the chemicals. it has adjustable nicotine levels so you can quit all together eventually.
