Today totally it is demonstrated that certain substances, as the nicotine or the tar and the carbon monoxide are dangerous for the health. The cancerigenic and irritating compounds of tar are responsible for the respiratory pathology of the smokers, whereas the nicotine and the carbon monoxide are responsible for the increase of the cardiovascular risk. Against the consumption of other drugs the drogodependencia of the smoked tobacco presents/displays in addition a serious disadvantage, since, not only mine the health of the users, but also, of the people of the surroundings, who involuntarily inhale the smoke of the tobacco.
