Smoking Q & A: Are Some Cigarettes Healthier Than Others?

Filed under: Exclusives!AdviceAddictionSmoking

Craig Nabat

Although quitting tobacco is the healthiest thing to do, it is FAR from the easiest! However, we want our readers to fight the food fight and quit smoking for GOOD!

Here to help you along your journey to a smoke-free lifestyle is FitPerez Smoking Counsellor Craig Nabat. This week, a reader named Hannah reached out to Craig with a question, asking:

Hi Craig,

Thanks for helping me out with this question – I really don’t want to quit smoking.

Is there a brand of cigarettes that are healthier for you than regular cigarettes?

According to the expert:

Hi Hannah,

Unfortunately, there is not one brand of cigarettes that is truly safer than the other. Attempt to change your thinking about smoking, you really can't get away from its harmful effects by switching brands. Cigarettes are cultivated in fertilizer, which when the tobacco is smoked releases cancer causing toxins. No cigarette is safe, period.

If you smoke cigarettes that are labeled as light, than you tend to inhale deeper, so you are able to obtain the same amount of nicotine that your body is used to. Light cigarettes are not one bit safer for you.

Seriously think about quitting smoking, you were not born a smoker, you
don't need cigarettes in your life.

Great advice! We know there are still plenty of people out there trying to quit who may need some help, so feel free to ask Craig more questions by tweeting @freedomlaser or writing to tips@fitperez.com!
