Apparently the inventor of the cigarette was a French soldier who on the battlefield in the nineteenth century. He had his clay pipe broken by a bullet and desperate to smoke his pipe, he resorted to tearing off a piece of paper from the pouch holding his gunpowder, rolled the tobacco in it, and lit up, and Hey Presto the cigarette was born. The place where this happened started with the zig zag cigarette papers, that are still used to roll cigarettes today.
Little did he know he was starting a multimillion dollar industry that would have no end, and make many rich, but also cause many to die of related diseases, caused by nicotine addiction.
