If you were just getting nicotine in your system, that would be bad enough..But your also getting a variety of chemicals designed to keep you addicted once you start..

I smoked for quite a few years and quit many times, even for a year once. But I always went back until I was finally successful.. I never stop desiring them and every once in a while I'll contemplate starting again... Remembering what I went through to give them up and how they affect my breathing and so on, so far has stopped me.

They allow this but are on the verge of taking vitamins away from us for our own good??

There are more than 4,000 chemicals in each cigarette. Here's a list of some of the most dangerous:

Ammonia-This is used to boost the absorption rate of nicotine.
Arsenic-This is used to protect tobacco plants from pests, but remains in the resulting cigarette.
Cadmium-This metallic compound in tobacco comes from acidic soil.
Formaldehyde-This byproduct of cigarette smoke is the same colorless gas commonly used to preserve bodies for burial.
Acetone-This byproduct from burning a cigarette is the same stuff found in nail polish remover.
Butane-This byproduct also is used to help you light your cigarette, as an ingredient in lighter fluid.
Propylene Glycol-This is added to keep tobacco from drying out and to speed up the delivery of nicotine to the brain.
Turpentine-This adds flavor to menthol cigarettes.
Benzene-This is another byproduct from burning a cigarette and can be found in pesticides and gasoline.
Lead and Nickel-These are metals.
