Lots or cigarettes have saltpeter in them. It keeps them burning. Pure tobacco won't stay lit. Among a few hundred other additives used in cigarettes (not all additives in all cig's) are acetone and benzene. Benzene can be found listed on cans of enamel lacquer paints. The kind that make you feel like Forrest Gump for a few days if you use them in a closed space without a respirator.

Interesting. Thanks! (I feel like Forrest Gump sometimes without any of that stuff.)

don't forget there is also arsenic and ammonia in cigarettes. I am SOOOOOO glad I never took up that habit.
