Furthermore, the carbon monoxide content of these cigars deprives the human body from its needed oxygen and that is definitely not good.
After knowing all these horrible things that cigarette smoking is causing, have you decided to stop smoking now? If yes, seek medical help in order to do it properly. You might experience withdrawal syndrome and to avoid such is to stop it gradually. Herbal smoke is also of great help. These are several herbs to choose from and in time you’ll get used to it. These days, there are already herbal smoke shops approved by the FDA for those who want to have some cigar alternatives.
Cigarette smoking is really something that should be stopped and avoided no matter what happens. Think about your health and the welfare of your love ones as well.
