We all know smoking is bad for us. I'm a 9 a day roll up smoker trying to cut down. I want to find which is healthier (if that's the right term!), smoking only half a cigarette and discarding the other half or rolling cigarettes to half length and smoking it all. Which method are you smoking more toxins?

    I am not sure.... I do know if you put a cig out and relite it its not good. 

    I am looking for something to help me quit I have tried medication it's not for me.  Do you know of anything?

      Yes  - I agree with you entirely but I just got to thinking I wonder if less toxins actually reach the body if you only smoke the first half as some of them are held in the remaining unsmoked tobacco. All a bit pathetic and pointless really but I'm just curious!

    Hi Elaine

    some would say what ever you find suits you I had been a smoker for a lot of years tried everything from patches to gum none worked for me I have been on the vapour cig for 10 weeks maybe that would help you cut down

    Hi Elaine,

    Knowing that its the toxins in the smoke/tar, 2 years ago i switched to e-cigarettes. They are not for everyone but you get your nicotine fix but without all the toxins and poisons that come with the tar.

    If you want to reduce the risks, I would suggest a 'scientific' approach. The smoke/tar is the bad guy.

    Good luck
