Abstract:

This study investigates the use of pipes and cigars as alternative ways of using tobacco in order to reduce the risk of harm of smoking. A nationally representative sample of approximately 26,000 adults, 18 and older, from the 2001 National Household Survey of Drug Abuse is used to test the differences in self-rated health of nonsmokers, former smokers, cigarette smokers, cigar smokers and pipe smokers. Using a standard question regarding self-rated health, pipe and cigar smokers should report better self-rated health than cigarette smokers but poorer self-rated health than nonsmokers or former cigarette smokers. The data generally support this hypothesis. As a result pipes and cigars can be seen as a form of tobacco harm reduction, a policy that is preferable to abstinence.
