Should you go with traditional cigarettes, traditional cigars, or little cigars?

That is a quandary many casual smokers find themselves in. It becomes especially profound when these casual smokers tend to be moms.

Why? Because as a parent, you always have this thought of influencing your children with your actions. Regardless of what you do, you have this indirect fear of how your action would affect your children and how it’d be perceived by their minds.

This thought is at its most prevalent when it comes to an activity such as tobacco smoking.

But since you may find that nicotine makes you relax and find peace, turning to it to unwind may not feel like a bad idea at all. That is when you need to clarify between the properties and effects of cigarettes and cigars.

Cigarettes as Compared to Little or Traditional Cigars

There are a few basic differences that set cigarettes and cigars apart. To help you understand them and which one would be a better fit for you, here is a list of those differing factors.

Consumption

When you are smoking cigarettes, you “inhale” the smoke, which goes directly to your lungs. That is how the nicotine is absorbed into your body.

But when you enjoy a traditional cigar, you don’t have to inhale it. The nicotine is absorbed through the lining of your mouth. This means that your lungs have minimal exposition to the tobacco. Little variations of cigars allow you to inhale the smoke. But it is not mandatory.

Manufacturing

Cigarettes are wrapped in their usual “cigarette paper” with the tobacco rolled inside of it. They also have a filter that is supposed to keep toxic particles and tar out of the smoke.

Whereas, little and traditional cigars are wrapped in tobacco leaves themselves (the little ones are also wrapped in a wrapper that’s 2/3 tobacco by weight). There is no ordinary paper used to roll them up. This gives them a special taste and provides them with their signature scent as well.

Taste

The tobacco in cigarettes is highly processed. This means that it is different in taste than little or traditional cigars. But the tobacco in cigars is not processed that much, which it gives a natural taste. This is why, little or traditional cigars are so sought after.

Keeping these details in mind, go through all of the relevant factors for cigarettes as well as little and traditional cigars. And select one option that suits your needs the best.
