Specialty Cigarettes Cigarettes prepared with strong tobacco and other ingredients, sometimes spices, to make them taste and smell sweet. May be more damaging than regular cigarettes, which are also very harmful.
Chronic Bronchitis The bronchi are irritated by tobacco smoke. The cilia, small sweeping hairlike projections, are destroyed and then that builds up, which causes chronic coughing and mucous secretions.
Emphysema The destruction of the tiny air sacs in the lungs called alveoli. The lungs lose their elasticity and need more oxygen to function. Most people with Emphysema will eventually carry an oxygen tank with them to breathe.
Lung Cancer Directly linked to smoking cigarettes and is the leading cause of cancer deaths among males. It begins at the bronchi, cilia are destroyed and excess mucous cannot be expelled. Cancer cells grow in these conditions, block the bronchi and move to lungs.
Nicotine Withdrawal The process that occurs within the body when the addictive drug, Nicotine, is no longer used.
Nicotine Substitutes Manufactured forms of nicotine that deliver small amounts of the drug into the user's system, while he/she is trying to give up the tobacco habit.
