Cigar The Alternative Of Cigarette Is Better for smoking ?

Posted by Gurseet Singh on


I’m thinking of switching to cigars from cigarettes; they are less riskier. This was one of the peculiar responses we received in the recent survey that we carried out to know smokers’ quit-smoking measures. 

In reality, both cigars and cigarettes contain nicotine. So, why are they seen in a different light? Is it only a matter of perception, or is one of them really better? Let’s find out.

What Are The Differences Between Cigars And Cigarettes?

Cigars and cigarettes differ from each other with regard to composition, quality and experience. The following tabulation presents points of comparison between cigars and cigarettes. 

Parameter Cigar Cigarette
Physical features Big and thick; lasts over 10 minutes Small; lasts less than 10 minutes
Wrapping Is wrapped in a tobacco leaf Is wrapped in paper
Nicotine content 100-200mg 8-10mg
Use of a filter Tends to be unfiltered Usually has filtered ends
Way of consumption Smoke is typically left in the mouth.
Nicotine absorption into the bloodstream is lower than in cigarettes
Smoke is inhaled into the lungs.
Nicotine absorption into the bloodstream is higher than in cigars
Social perception Classy and elite; suited for celebration or pompous show; offers a sophisticated sensory experience Considered addictive and dangerous; offers a pleasurable daily routine

Is It Better to Smoke Cigars Than Cigarettes?

The nicotine content of 1 cigar may be equivalent to the nicotine content of 1 pack of unfiltered cigarettes. Cigars, like cigarettes, lead to nicotine dependence. If you inhale the smoke of a single cigar, your body gets the nicotine of multiple smoked cigarettes. Even if you don't inhale the nicotine, it is absorbed through the lining of your mouth. Also, secondhand smoke from cigars is as hazardous as secondhand cigarette smoke. 

Regular smoking of cigars poses the following health risks:

  • Cancers of the lung, esophagus, larynx, and oral cavity
  • Gum disease and tooth loss
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Lung diseases, such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis

Cigars contain the same toxic and carcinogenic compounds present in cigarettes. They are likely to cause oral cancer, while cigarettes can lead to lung cancer.

Switching from cigarettes to cigars can be more harmful, as smokers tend to inhale the cigar smoke the way they inhale the cigarette smoke. Cigars are in no way safer than cigarettes. 

“While the production, look and consumption of cigars and cigarettes are different, they both pose serious health risks. Smoking, whether it’s cigars or cigarettes, is not recommended.”
