Addiction and Substance Abuse
Black & milds addictive?
I have been smoking black and milds for a couple of monthes. I have heard various things about wether they contain nicotine or if they are addictive or not. Are black and milds addictive?
All tobacco products contain nicotine which is a highly addictive substance. Black and milds are a type of cigar. Nicotine alters your brain chemistry and affects your moods and behavior. If an individual is smoking or chewing tobacco daily, they are probably addicted to nicotine.
