What's worse? Alcohol or tobacco?!

Question: What's worse? Alcohol or tobacco?

Tobacco without a doubt. Its addictive, so you can't really use it in moderation, which you can do with alcohol.

Granted alcohol isn't much better, since people are insistent on abusing it and getting wasted and crashing cars or destroying relationships.

Alcohol has had its problems since discovered by Neolithic Man centuries ago. Tobacco, on the other hand, is physically addictive, and harder to quit than cocaine. Nicotine changes your digestive processes, so when you give up tobacco, your stomach and intestines hurt for 3 months. Only heroin and other opiates are more difficult to quit than tobacco, and it is NOT POSSIBLE to ever withdraw from those. Besides, to a non-smoker, tobacco stinks worse than any cat box or outhouse in the world. I call smokers diaper-lickers, because they get something as stenchy as a cigarette near their face. Stench sticks (cigarettes) should be banned. The one thing that makes tobacco better than alcohol is that no one ever died in a car crash because somebody had to many smokes. Lighting one up, maybe (distraction). Prof. John Kitchin, psychology

equally bad. smoking harms your heart, lungs, teeth, mouth, etc while alcohol ruins your liver and hurts your heart and many other things...possibly your reputation (ha)....in less quantities, alcohol is more accepted.

Tobacco has worse long term effect and can cause cancer. Alcohol is also bad when taking a large amount.

alcohol get your liver
tobacco get your lungs

Tobacco, but both are the worst drugs anyone could possibly use.

Tobacco probably, because it's addictive.

In terms of how much harm it does society, junk food is worse than either of those.
