In accordance with this smoking, many teenagers are now turning to flavored cigars as a preferred source of smoking, with flavors like Dreamsicle and chocolate mintt One bonus for people to smoke this kind of tobacco is that the flavor hides the harshness of the tobacco that allows you to sense that it’s bad for you. This is also a bad thing in the fact that it discourages you from wanting to stop smoking, because not only does it feel addictive, now it’s tasty too.
In studies shown, kids experimenting with tobacco often leads to life long smoking, with 88% of adults saying they started smoking at 18 and have not stopped.
While President Obama signed an act to disallow the sale of flavored cigarettes, flavored cigars were not banned which are actually quite similar. Smoking companies say they make the flavors for adults, using ﬂavored vodka and such as an example of how adults prefer things with flavor in them.
The sale of flavored cigars is a huge problem for our society, due to the fact that teenage smokers are much more inclined to smoke.
