Question:

If you smoke black and milds how much nicotine are you getting in apple black and milds, and what is the difference between inhaling and not inhaling?

Black and Milds contain pipe tobacco which has more nicotine than is in a cigarette. Black and Milds are definitely addictive. Most smokers think they don't inhale, when they really do.

Any smoking is hazardous. Black and Milds are not a safe alternative to cigarettes. They contain carbon monoxide and other carcinogens, just like cigarettes.
