What's in cigarettes?

Cigarettes are made from tobacco. The tobacco plant contains a drug called nicotine. Nicotine is a deadly poison – it can kill a person in less than an hour if even a small amount is injected into the blood stream. Tobacco smoke contains very tiny amounts of nicotine that aren't deadly, but are still very bad for your health.
