It’s no secret that smoking is bad for our health, or that it is a viciously addictive habit – one which is undeniably difficult for anyone to break through sheer will power alone. It can be done, however, and there are many natural alternatives to nicotine gum that can aid you in this endeavour, which I will discuss at the end of this article.

I think it’s safe to say that most of us have no idea what’s actually inside of a cigarette. We know cigarettes are bad, and we know they contain tobacco. Some of us might even assume that it’s the tobacco itself which is the problem, but that’s simply not the case. There are approximately 4,000 different chemicals found in cigarettes, around 50 of which are proven to be carcinogenic.

It’s crazy to think that cigarettes were once marketed as healthy by doctors, and were prescribed as a means of helping people relax. It took many years and many lawsuits to prove that they were doing far more than people had bargained for. Since their introduction to the marketplace, they’ve been a catalyst for multiple diseases and a big contributor to millions of deaths worldwide.

If you don’t want to quit smoking, it’s better to at least find your own pure tobacco, devoid of all these chemicals, so you can roll your own cigarettes knowing exactly what you’re smoking.

The following chemicals are found inside of the average cigarette:

Benzene

This is a known carcinogen and is associated with leukaemia. It’s also used as a solvent in fuel and can be found in rubber cement.

Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is used as an embalming fluid and is known to cause respiratory problems, cancer, skin and stomach ailments, and much more. This is found within the smoke of the cigarette.

Ammonia

Commonly used as a toilet cleaner, ammonia is also often found in dry cleaning fluids and other cleaning products. By adding ammonia to the cigarette manufacturing process, however, ammonia helps convert bound nicotine molecules in tobacco smoke into free nicotine molecules, boosting its impact on the user significantly.

Acetone

This is also a nail polish remover. It’s extremely flammable and is found in cigarette smoke.

Tar

Once inhaled, tar actually condenses in the lungs and approximately 70 percent of it is deposited there. It contributes to many lung diseases, such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and lung cancer.
