I know that all smoking is bad but are regular cigarettes worse than filtered cigars or pipe tobacco?

Regular cigarettes may contribute to a higher concentration of resins and other carcinogens than filtered ones, but the difference is not that significant and i would, by no chance, recommend lulling yourself with that fact for an excuse not to quit smoking.
