Chemicals in Cigarettes

Ever wonder what chemicals are in cigarettes you are smoking?  There are around 4,000 chemicals found in tobacco smoke, including many poisons and at least 50 of which are carcinogens (known to cause cancer).  Did you know that along with tobacco, you are also smoking chemicals used in rocket fuel, paint, nail polish remover, insecticide, lighter fluid, batteries, embalming fluid, rat poison, car exhaust fumes, and toilet cleaner?  The well-known poison called Nicotine is one of the most addictive substances known to man.  Many people in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction continue to battle with nicotine addiction, consuming these toxic chemicals well into their sobriety.
