The purpose of this descriptive study is to assess smoke nicotine level of six cigarette brands sold in the markets. The samples consist of three brands of filtered cigarette and three brands of ‘kretek’ unfiltered cigarette. The nicotine content was measured from both main-stream smoke and side-stream smoke by using High Performance Liquid Chromatography. Each of brand measured three times. The average of nicotine content in each cigarette was shown in the table including comparison between the main-stream smoke and the side-stream smoke. It was found that the nicotine content of ‘kretek’ cigarettes is higher than filtered cigarette. The highest nicotine content of the filtered cigarettes was in Filter “C” brand, meanwhile the lowest was Filter “A” brand. The highest nicotine content of the ‘kretek’ cigarettes was in Filter “X” brand with the lowest nicotine content was in Filter “Z” brand. The nicotine cigarette content of main-stream smoke was 4 – 6 fold than side-stream smoke. From this study, it can be recommended that nicotine content should be put on every cigarette pack label, and there should be a follow up study on other brand of cigarettes and also the effects of cigarettes on active and passive smokers.
