8 Survival Uses of Cigarettes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Cigarettes are one of the main causes of death. More than 480, 000 people are dying because of cigarettes. They contribute to a lot of serious health problems and chronic illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, diminished immune function, emphysema, heart disease, and reproductive issues.

But cigarettes can be used in survival situations and they can be helpful for your survival.

Here are the 8 survival uses of cigarettes.

Barter

One of the most helpful and reliable uses of cigarettes for survival, is to barter them. Most people will do bartering after a major disaster and cigarettes and alcohol will be highly sought during these times.

Insect Bites and Stings

Chew or wet the tobacco and then apply it to your bites or stings. The pain should go away and your wound will heal shortly after.

Pesticide

You can make your own pesticide using the tobacco from a cigarette. Just dilute the tobacco with water and place it into a spray bottle. Spray it then to your plants, if you’re going to use this to your edibles, make sure that you wash your plants thoroughly before consumption.
Relax your muscles

A few puffs of cigarette or an application of a tobacco poultice can help you relax your muscles. Although the effect is not quite the same as a prescription cream or pill, it can still be helpful for you. Puffing cigarette can ease the pain in your muscles during an emergency situation or if you’re doing outdoor activities.

Stop bleeding

Applying a small amount of cigarette ash in your wound can stop the flow of bleeding. This method will only work on small wounds, so make that you do not apply this method on deep wounds and serious injuries.

You can also apply raw tobacco on your small wounds. Tobacco has the ability to relieve pain.

Tinder

Well obviously, you can use cigarette as tinder in building up a fire. You can use the paper shell, the shredded tobacco, or the fluffed up filter to make a fire.

Cigarettes can also help preserve embers. This makes it easier for you to transport fire from different places, without even worrying about a coal smoldering out along the way.

Toothache

Tobacco can help relieve toothaches and minor wounds, because of their naturally occurring antiseptic and anesthetic properties.

Water filter

The filter portion of a cigarette can be used to filter water in an emergency situation. Remove the filter from the tobacco and place the filter in a straw, reed, or a piece of bamboo. Although using cigarette filter as a water filter won’t remove parasites and microscopic organisms in the water, it can still remove bigger muck and yuck in the water.

Make sure that the tobacco is not intact when applying this method. The tobacco can cause serious illness and stomach upset, when it is leached into the water.

      “A few puffs of cigarette can help you relax your muscles.”
      that is the ONLY thing you must not do with them ever remember why people will want them addiction. one is enough to get a none or ex smoker started again.then heath and every other use is lost because you may like others start to need them. I would seriously in these situations risk dieing than ever put a cigerette in my mouth again after stopping for 30 years its like an ex alcoholic just one drink is enough.remember these words.

      I must carry this as so important for people to realise a Cigarette may make you feel calm but in fact what it does to your body is take away the blood supply from the peripherals (hands and feet) and brain as well as increasing the heart rate tremendously.
      Look at it this way when you see a duck swimming along on a still lake its looks calm and peaceful. While its feet are moving furiously out of site under the water, to keep it moving. this is what your body is doing when you smoke, needing more smoke for the same effect as time goes on, feeling bad when smoke not there as with drug addicts called addiction. Don’t even start. I know it is only one and you can stop anytime, which is why there are so many big rich tobacco companies all around the world.
