    We performed a series of experiments in order to determine the actual temperature of the lit cigarette. Here are the results for the temperature at different locations and under different conditions:

    Temperature without drawing:
    Side of the lit portion: 400 deg C (or 752 deg F)
    Middle of the lit portion: 580 deg C (or 1112 deg F)

    Temperature during drawing:
    Middle of the lit portion: 700 deg C (or 1292 deg F)

    The above numbers represent the average we obtained by performing several trials and can be considered accurate to within 50 deg C. A standard Fe-CuNi digital thermocouple thermometer was used in all trials.

Addictions

Try to imagine yourself you're in hallucination due to some sort of illegal drug intake. Or, trying to stop yourself from logging in to your gaming account but your fingers are fidgeting and you feel like jerking around. Addiction. It's not limited to illegal drug intake in the society but it can be anything or activities that pull you hard to it like gaming, alcohol, caffeine, and smoking. Most of the ideas that say something about addiction are always negative because of the irresponsibility of the people involved. Some don't know the way out; some don't know how to make a good use of it.
