    What are the healthiest cigarettes?

    I know that most companies have Light versions of their cigarettes, but does anyone know which is healthier?

    Also, are cigars healthier?

    Really, there are no "safe" cigarettes. They are all bad for you.

    I'm a light smoker, myself (only a few a day...a pack will last 3 days for me) and I somke marlboro lights. Lights have less tar/nicotine than full flavor, and Ultra Lights have even less.

    As far as cigars go, inhaling one is equivalent to several cigarettes. I guess it's not that bad if you just puff a cigar every now and then for the flavor.

    What brand are Ultra Lights? Also, how do I learn to inhale properly -- how long do you keep the smoke down before exhaling?

    I know marlboro puts them out...not sure about other brands.

    As far as inhaling, it's just something you have to get used to. The first few times it's going to burn like hell and taste like ****. You'll cough, choke, gag...whatever. Normally you inhale the smoke and blow it right back out after a second or two. Prepare to be dizzy and slightly nauseaed(sp?) if you've never smoked before and your body is not used to nicotine.

    Be warned though...smoking is a nasty habit that is HIGHLY addictive. You will receive **** from people for the rest of your life if you choose to be a smoker. Regardless, I smoke and I say to each his own.

    That's not 100% true...

    Will smoking slow your progress down a bit? Yes.

    Can you still smoke and make gains? Yes.

    Now if you smoke 3 packs a day like some people that I know, then yeah, you won't be doing much physical activity...but i've been smoking for a couple years now and I still work out 3-4 x a week and I can do my normal activities without getting out of breath. But like I said, i'm not a heavy smoker.

    how long have you been smoking? couple years?

    It took about 3 years of a 10-15 ciggs a day, maybe a pack a day the most, for me to really notice how short of breath I was getting from not even that exerting myself that much. Also you start to cough in the morning and **** like that. Scared me into quitting. You may not realize it, but its probably hindering you somewhat if only just slightly.

    Almost 2 years...

    The only time I will smoke an entire pack in one day is if I smoke my normal 6-8 during the day and I go out drinking that night. For some reason drinking beer at a bar/club makes me wanna smoke like crazy. This happens a couple of times a month at most. And it's weird...after one of those days when i smoke a whole pack, it'll take about 2 days for my cravings to come back. I haven't experienced the "oh it's morning, let's hack up a lung" yet

    Please don't start smoking to "please your boyfriend". I don't remember my exact reason for starting, but it def wasn't to make someone of the opposite sex happy.

    Same thing here dude started when i was 16 and quit like a month ago. Now I am 21 and I hope I never smoke again cause its just not healthy, bothers me when i workout and i always felt like i am a slave to the nicotine. The only good thing i can say is that lungs can actually regenerate after few years of not smoking so there is still hope for you me and others like us. If ur a bodybuilder its just pointless to smoke, i am glad i changed my lifestyle and that i am not wasting my life sitting on the couch and watching TV all fawking day, and driniking coffee and smoking. Go to the gym people, pump some iron its better than smoking
