Do you think these are better for you than regular ones? Do you think your chances of getting cancer are reduced if you smoke them? Do you think you’re less of an addicted smoker?
Sadly, the answer will always be no.
I went through phases when I first started out. I thought the “straight, filter-less” cigarettes were too harsh, so I started out with lighter types.
Then I tried “ultra lights” as these are marketed as the safest tobacco product out there.
But, it’s hard to get a drag off them, so I eventually went back to a harsher type, to fulfill my addictive needs and get my fix.
You may think you’re doing yourself a favor by switching to ultra lights, but you aren’t at all. It’s all the same really.
Yes, it’s harder to inhale enough nicotine in the same drag of an ultra light in comparison to a regular type.
Do you know what they are for?
They are what is making it so difficult to take a proper drag in the first place.
Some of the smoke is escaping through the holes.
If you cover the holes with your fingers, you can actually take a normal drag.
People usually release their fingers when they inhale. When the drag is finished, their fingers return to clench the cigarette.
Have you noticed this before?
Watch yourself, or watch other people in the act.
These are designed so you’ll take your fingers off the filter, thus allowing smoke to escape through the holes, which makes the drag harder to take.
That’s what makes an ultra light cigarette. It’s all in the design of the filter.
In frustration, people will get really desperate and cut the filter off all together, or at least past the point where the holes are.
There isn’t less nicotine in an ultra light. It’s just escaping through the well-designed filter.
If you cut it completely off, do you think it would still be an ultra light? Absolutely not!
It would be much more harsh.
If you’re used to smoking a pack a day (or more), and you suddenly switch to ultra lights, you’ll just end up smoking more, because it’s harder to get the same amount nicotine you were getting before, because of the well-designed filter.
Are they safer for you?
Nope again. There is still tar, nicotine, and all 599 additives.
It’s impossible to escape.
There is no such thing as a safe or safer cigarette.
They simply don’t exist.
The only benefit of smoking an ultra light is that the filter reduces the amount of tar and nicotine you’re receiving.
But that’s if you don’t know about the holes in the sides of the filter.
You can still get cancer, bronchitis, and emphysema. You will still develop a cough.
You’ll still be a slave to nicotine, and it will control your every thought.
You’ll never be in control if you smoke ANY type of cigarette. It doesn’t matter what it is, you will always lose.
Dont tell me theres no such thing as a safer ciggarete when American spirit exists and it has 700 – 2,000 less chemicals. Not including arsenic and cynaide.
Great but I have already gone light and looking for lighter and I am not smoking more just cutting back until I don’t have a craving and it has worked for me so far. Wish you had provided that info but guess I can pop holes in the filter.
Thanks for the information. I wasn’t aware that the only difference was the filter.
