  1. cigarette

    A cigarette is a small, cylindrical product that is filled with finely-curved or shredded tobacco leaves, wrapped in thin paper, and intended for smoking. When lit, the tobacco inside combusts, producing smoke that is inhaled into the user's lungs. Cigarettes often contain additional substances to enhance flavor and may come with filters attached to reduce the inhalation of harmful substances produced during burning. They are associated with several health risks, including addiction due to their nicotine content, lung diseases, and various forms of cancer.

  1. Cigarette

    A cigarette is a small cylinder of finely cut tobacco leaves rolled in thin paper for smoking. The cigarette is ignited at one end and allowed to smoulder; its smoke is inhaled from the other end, which is held in or to the mouth and in some cases a cigarette holder may be used as well. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered and include reconstituted tobacco and other additives. The term cigarette, as commonly used, refers to a tobacco cigarette but can apply to similar devices containing other herbs, such as cloves or cannabis. A cigarette is distinguished from a cigar by its smaller size, use of processed leaf, and paper wrapping, which is normally white, though other colors are occasionally available. Cigars are typically composed entirely of whole-leaf tobacco. Rates of cigarette smoking vary widely, and have changed considerably over the course of history — since cigarettes were first widely used in the mid-20th century. While rates of smoking have over time leveled off or declined in the developed world, they continue to rise in developing nations.
