It’s tempting to believe that you can cut down on smoking or reduce your health risks by using low-tar cigarettes. The reality is, however that the only way to genuinely increase the benefits to your health is to stop smoking altogether.
Low-tar cigarettes are not safer than ordinary cigarettes. Although machines used to test cigarettes draw less tar and nicotine from low-tar brands, real smokers don’t – instead, they either smoke more of them or inhale more deeply, to get the same effect.
In fact, low-tar is so misleading it's been banned from cigarette packs. By smoking less or switching to light cigarettes, you're still putting tar into your lungs and more than 4,000 chemicals and toxins into your body. The only solution is to give up tobacco altogether – whether it’s cigarettes, chewing tobacco or cigars.
