Okay, you know that cigarettes are bad for you. I’m not going to list all of the ways smoking can kill you. Instead, I’m going to go a different route and talk about some of the ways cigarettes can help you in a survival situation.
Make a Pesticide
You can use cigarettes to make your own pesticide in a survival situation. Remove the tobacco, add some water to it, and put the mixture into a spray bottle. Then, you can apply the mixture to your plants. That way, pests won’t eat them up.
If you are out in the wild, you might end up with some insect bites and stings. Wet some tobacco and apply it to the affected area. The pain will go away shortly. This is a quick and easy trick that can make your life much easier out in the wild.
Smoking is never a good idea, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep some cigarettes handy. Put them in your bug out bag so you can use them for pesticides and pain relief.
