Here's another good reason not to smoke - a man in Indonesia lost six teeth this week after his cigarette exploded.

The company behind the brand offered to pay for the man's medical treatment after the accident, the exact reason behind the exploding cigarette has yet to be determined.

"Andi Susanto, a 31-year-old security guard, said PT Nojorono Tobacco Indonesia, the maker of the brand of cigarette he was smoking, had offered to pay for his medical treatment, which reportedly cost 5 million rupiah (£335)."

A REAL man doesn't let a little thing like death and disfiguerment stop him from enjoying his itsy-bitsy little vice.

If someone blew six of my teeth out, im pretty sure i'd expect a little more than $335 or whatever it was.

There is a company that makes cigarett exploding sticks,What you do is press one stick into the cig and hide it back in the pack,that way the owner of the pack never knows it is there,he may smoke half the pack until he gets the loaded cig ,when he lights it he may even get two to three good puffs out of it before it explodes sending cig shrapnel all over the place,but if you stick in more than three the explosion gets bigger,I wonder if an employee at the cig plant was acting stupid and loaded one or more of the things before they were packaged.I loaded one into my buddys moms boyfriends pack...

Who knows what kind of chemicals are in cigarettes. He probably got one that absorbed too much of a combustible kind.
