The truth behind TAR.


Hey, it’s Dawn, your A Clean Cigarette blogger.  I am back for blog #3. I hope the first two got your attention, and I hope this one keeps it! Today we are going to talk about Tar; that’s a picture of Tar right there.⇓

A Tar Pit. Ewww!

Now, tar is always found, in every single cigarette that is smoked.  There is simply no getting around it. That is because tobacco cigarettes are lit on fire.  Fire burning anything creates smoke and tar; that’s just a fact. The fact that electronic cigarettes are not lit on fire means they cannot produce the stuff.

But back to tobacco, the yellow on these cigarette butts is Tar.


That same yellowing occurs on the walls of a house where there are people smoking burning tobacco as a means to deliver nicotine. ⇓ Yuck!

This stuff sticks to everything, walls, furniture, clothes, even your hair!

That can mean a rough clean up!

Double Yuck!
Double Yuck!

That’s not all tar stains though. 🙁 Check these pics out. ⇓

Your teeth take care of you, shouldn’t they get a break from the tar?


It is not hard to spot a long term smoker, the tar leaves it’s mark for all to see.


The staining can get very bad, as seen here on this long term smokers fingers.

Unfortunately, it gets way worse. When a smoker inhales tar from a burning cigarette, then it coats their lungs. Warning, the next picture is not for the faint of heart. ⇓ To be completely honest it is straight out disgusting.

This is what Tar does to lungs.
This is what Tar does to lungs.

To wrap it up

On top of being bad for the health of your lungs and teeth, it stinks up your home and overall is just gross. Tar sticks to everything, even you. It happens whenever something is lit on fire.  If you really want to keep the nicotine, but you are tired of TAR we do have another option for you. A Clean Cigarette brand electronic cigarettes cannot produce tar. So you still get your nicotine, but you get to give up not only the gross black stuff but nearly 600 ingredients and 4000+ chemicals too. It seems like a better than a fair trade to us and we hope you agree!

As always I hope this was useful, and if you have any questions at all either leave me a comment here or drop me a line at

Bye!  Dawn 🙂

  1. After going over a handful of the blog articles on your blog,
    I seriously appreciate your way of blogging. I saved it to my bookmark webpage list and will be checking back soon. Take a look at my
    web site too and tell me what you think.

  2. Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to look it
    over. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

    Excellent blog and brilliant design.

  3. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
    is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques
    to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate

    1. Brenda,
      Great question! For this blog I have a LOT of original work, I do have to site, and quote other sources in order to report accurately about what’s going on in the e-cig industry. That being said I work very hard to give credit where credit is due. If on the other hand some one wants to use some of my content for their own blog or news sight I would have no problem with that. As long as they give credit where credit is due. I have not noticed an issue as far as people stealing content but we have been blessed to have a few people share our content while giving us credit. That just Rocks!! The more this content is shared the more educated the consumers will be in regards to electronic cigarettes! Thanks for the outstanding question!!

      ~ Dawn

  4. Reblogged this on A Clean Cigarette Blog and commented:

    Happy Friday every one!! Fridays are re-blog day here on the A Clean Cigarette Blog. Why? Because there is some great stuff buried deep in the content of the blog. Although with the recent update finding things should be easier now, some really great blogs are just buried too deep.

    The blog I have chosen for today talks all about a really important subject. Tar. Dirty, Nasty Tar.

    This was the third blog we ever posted here, it was buried for sure. Not any more! Take a peek and let me know what you think!
