If you are considering quit smoking and want to try something that really works, why not take a look at our guide on all you need to know about heated tobacco and heat not burn technology. PMI ( the owners of the Marlboro brand) have spent many years developing the IQOS device and have been busily perfecting and clearly understanding a safe a reduced risk way of providing an alternative way of traditional smoking.
When it comes to using a device to quit traditional smoking, many people may be put off by the thought of charging and battery life. However, with the IQOS heat not burn device, a smoke free device has never been more efficient. If you are a mobile phone user, you can treat your IQOS device exactly how you would with that, the same logic is applied here and there is no need to keep it on charge all day or worry about a flat battery.
With this ever-evolving battleground of heat not burn as being the new “go to” switch from traditional products we know that it pays to stay on top of your game. It seems that PMI have just done that with their new Keynote speech and hands on with not one but two new devices.
Since 2012 the government has been committed to helping there nation kick the habits of smoking cigarettes. Broadly speaking the efforts seem to have paid off in so much as 16% of all smokers made a quit attempt in the month of October 2017 and 8% of all smokers sustained quitting for over one month.
Firstly, the tobacco companies need to keep selling tobacco or they would no longer be a tobacco company. Secondly if the tobacco companies could mimic traditional smoking without the carcinogens associated with combustion then it is the holy grail. Why? Because people who smoke like to smoke but know it is killing them. Imagine if you could smoke but it was not bad for you.
With the release of the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee report on E- Cigarettes seventh report session the real nub of the matter has once again come to a head.
Government has to decide once and for all if it is going to get behind electronic cigarettes (from vaping to heat not burn products like IQOS ) as a viable tool to assist smokers in their quitting/transition journey.
As someone who smoked for 30 years I got to thinking if I could go back in time to my 16 year old self would have grabbed that cigarette and started what would be a three decade love hate relationship. Oddly but truthfully the answer is yes.
I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I “got away with it” when my breathing started to become laboured and my skin was changing to be an ashen colour I realised the game was up and I had to stop.
