Tobacco is the common name given to all plants in Nicotiana genus and it is the general term for any product prepared from the cured leaves of a tobacco plant. This plant was first discovered by the native people of America and later introduced to Europe and the rest of the world. It was originally used by Native Americans in religious ceremonies and for medical purposes. It has been used as a cure-all remedy, for dressing wounds, reducing pain, and even for toothaches.
Although it could be continued to be used only for beneficial activities people started to curse themselves by starting to smoke tobacco. The first report of a smoking Englishman is of a sailor in Bristol in 1556, seen “emitting smoke from his nostrils”. From then onwards, smoking tobacco most popularly called as cigarette smoking has begun to become a curse to the whole world.
