Is a cigar bad for you?!

Question: Is a cigar bad for you?
Is it the same as a cigarette?


No. It's not the same thing. And I'm not sure what the statistics are, but I know that if you enhale a cigar it's a lot worse than a cigarette. That's why you are just supposed to puff on them.

It is not the same as a cigarette, but yes, it's bad for you. Although the intent when smoking a cigar is not to inhale, some of the smoke ends up in your lungs, especially if you're smoking inside. The largest danger, though, is mouth cancer. You do get as much, sometimes more, nicotene as a cigarette, but it's absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth.

Since, however, most people do not continually smoke cigars all day, like most cigarette smokers, the danger is greatly dimished by the infrequency of use more than anything.

Enjoy a good cigar from time to time. The danger to your health is fractional compared to getting behind the wheel and driving to the grocery store.

Despite health issues with cigarettes and cigars, cigarettes contains only 5% of natural tobacco, the rest of them are artificial substances added. Premium cigars are made 100% with natural tobacco, nothing added except all the work behind them.
Smoking cigarettes is usually linked to nervous and anxiety, but smoking a cigar should be a relaxing experience. People who are walking on the streets smoking a premium cigar are really amateurs and they do not know for sure how to properly "enjoy" a cigar.
Cigars are usually smoked along with a nice beverage, such a good whiskey, cognac, brandy, ron or a good coffee or even a cup of tea.
You can see that cigars and cigarettes are not the same thing...

yer, the size of the cigar depends on how bad it is but even most "normal" cigarette sized cigars are worst for you than the cigarette. You are supposed to just puff on them and not inhale any smoke

It is mostly the same thing.
