Do cigarettes actually cause weight loss?

I know how dangerous cigarettes are and I'm not planning on smoking them, I'm writing a paper in health.

No... quitting will often cause people to gain weight but that is because they replace the hand to mouth habit of smoking with the hand to mouth of eating. That hand to mouth thing becomes a very hard thing to break you will often hear people who are trying to quit say "I don't know what to do with my hands"

Indirectly, I suppose. Cigarettes cause cancer and cancer causes weight loss.

There are better ways to lose weight.

No way. The habit of smoking might replace having a snack, just as a drink of water would.

it does because you spend more time with a cig in your mouth than food

I would think so. Especially with how many packs a regular smoker would go through instead of eating

They cause loss of appetite. That is about the only upside, because they also make you look seedy and gross, and can kill you in about 2500 different ways.

Yes because they weaken your taste buds so you don't really like eating.

I've smoked all my adult life, no it doesn't cause weight loss, it causes many other things, all bad. I'm on oxygen 24 hrs a day. Can't even go for a walk. Don't ever smoke, not that you were planing to
