Smoking and Tobacco

Nicotine levels



I have just started using the Nicotrol inhaler, which delivers 4mg of nicotine. My doctor didn`t know & I can`t find the answer -- how much nicotine is in one cigarette (in my case, I`ve just stopped smoking Marlboro Red). I find it very encouraging when I can reckon how much less I`m taking in than I was before. Can you tell me?
