    I think it depends until where you smoke too. The tobacco can also act as a filter. So if you smoke it till the butt it probably will do the same damage.

    My own personal opinion not really some of the fat cigarettes could be less harmful.what you need to look for is the amount of Tar per mg . Nicotine per mg and Carbon Monoxide per mg which should be labelled on the packaging. But bottom line is that no cigarettes are safe.I was once told by a smoking cessation nurse that cigarettes contain over 6000 different chemicals.I haven't checked this out I'll take her word for it but you could Google it

    it's not about the diameter of cigs. Now I am trying to quit everything (I mean my bad habits );).
    I prefer those cigs with long filters (buds). Such cigs are safe as it contain low amount of Tar and other chemicals.
