By Ranker508 | | Posted in Products | 321 Views

A cigarette, or cigaret, is a small cylinder of finely cut tobacco leaves rolled in thin paper for smoking. The cigarette is ignited at one end causing the cigarette to smoulder and allowing smoke to be inhaled from the other end, which is held in or to the mouth; in some cases, a cigarette holder may be used, as well. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered, and also include reconstituted tobacco and other additives. Nicotine, the primary psychoactive chemical in tobacco and therefore cigarettes, is very addictive. While rates of smoking have over time leveled off or declined in the developed world, they continue to rise in developing nations.
