Carbon Monoxide is one of the many chemicals present in cigarettes.

Carbon Monoxide is chemical compound whose chemical formula is CO. It is a colourless, odorless, tasteless, flammable and highly toxic gas at room temperature. It is a product of the incomplete combustion of carbon and carbon-containing compounds. Complete combustion of carbon and carbon-containing compounds results in the formation of carbon dioxide CO2 as opposed to CO. Carbon monoxide from vehicular and manufacturing / industrial processes is a dangerous pollutant thought to contribute to the greenhouse effect and global warming. It is also a constituent of tobacco smoke.

Carbon monoxide gas is highly toxic and is therefore life-threatening, both to humans and to other air-breathing animals. Inhaling even relatively small amounts can lead to hypoxic injury, neurological damage, and possibly death. Early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include drowsiness and headache, followed by unconsciousness, respiratory failure, and death.
