We are back to the low nicotine cigarettes subject once again and for good reason: this serves as a reminder that smoking low-nicotine cigarettes can help you tone down the desire. In short, low nicotine means less smoking, ultimately allowing you to cast this health-deterring, money wasting habit out of your life once and for all.
The subject of smoking was highly debated this summer, especially because of the e-cigarette studies. Studies have shown that smoking e-cigarettes with lower nicotine levels has proven useful in fighting back “commercial” smoking. If e-cigs can do it, so can low-nicotine “normal” cigarettes. But this subject field remains quite gray, especially because specialists tend to push towards one extreme or the other.
It was highly discussed whether moving towards “light” or even “ultra-light” cigarettes can reduce nicotine consumption and when opinions were divided, yet again, it was time that a certified institution would come in and set things right.
This institution was the University of Pittsburgh, which organized a study that involved 840 people. All these people were heavy smokers, consuming at least 5 cigarettes every day. They were given experimental cigarettes which ranged in between 0.4 mg per tobacco gram to 15.8 mg per tobacco gram. Guess what happened?
Researchers have declared that the participants who smoke 0.4, 1.3 and 2.4 mg cigarettes registered a significant drop in number of cigarettes smoked per day: in between 23 to 30%. What did this mean? That smokers would puff 14 or 17 times every day at max.
So, for the time being, it looks like lower level nicotine cigarettes actually do work and they help you quit the urge to “smoke just one more”. Either way, attempting to quit smoking is not only a health issue, but a financial one as well. Imagine that every smoker literally throws money at an industry that is profiting from unhealthy people and does nothing in order to help them.
We are just giving away money to kill ourselves. This should be enough evidence for you to question whether your habits are right or wrong. Why give money for something that can kill you and others around the world, when you can save one year’s cigarette spending and go on a sunny vacation? And you will be healthy, too!
