Can IQOS help you stop smoking?

Smokers look for ways to stop smoking for many different reasons, which range from personal hygiene and aesthetics - it stains teeth and fingers - to more social aspects - the smell that lingers on clothes, hair and breath or the smoke that may bother those around them.

The best choice is to stop using tobacco and consuming nicotine entirely and this is why there are so many different products and methods available to help people quit smoking, like the nicotine patches and gum that can be found in chemists.

IQOS is not among this type of products; it is not designed to help consumers to quit smoking for the simple reason that it is a device that uses heated tobacco units that contain nicotine, an addictive substance whose use is not without risk.

Nonetheless, IQOS can be considered a better alternative to traditional cigarettes and a better option for those continuing to smoke, due to its many advantages. It is important to remember that IQOS is a device intended for adult smokers only, who would otherwise continue to consume tobacco products or use products that contain nicotine but who can, if they make the switch completely to IQOS, improve their everyday lives, thanks to a smoke free device that creates no ash and produces no cigarette smell.

Can IQOS replace traditional cigarettes?

Yes, IQOS can replace traditional cigarettes as it offers a better alternative for those people[1] who wish to free themselves from the disadvantages of traditional cigarettes, like smoke, ash and smell.

It is very important to understand that in order to benefit from all the advantages offered by IQOS and its heating system, the change must be definitive and traditional cigarettes must be eliminated entirely.

Can IQOS benefit you in the same ways as stopping smoking?

Use of IQOS cannot benefit you in all the ways stopping smoking can as it is not risk-free, however it does offer you advantages in comparison with traditional cigarettes, thanks to its exclusive, advanced HeatControl™ technology. This innovative system does not burn the tobacco, IQOS heats the tobacco to a controlled temperature of up to 350º, thanks to a heating blade inside the device that controls the temperature.

At first sight, heating or burning tobacco may appear to be an unimportant detail, but in actual fact, it is the key to everything. As the tobacco does not burn, IQOS generates no smoke, instead producing a nicotine-containing vapour – not smoke - that dissipates more quickly than traditional cigarette smoke and which is much less dense. Additionally, IQOS produces no ash and differently to cigarettes, as there is no fire involved, there is also no risk of burning those around you, nor pets, clothes or furniture.

The fact of not producing smoke or ash means that IQOS is a cleaner device than traditional cigarettes and, therefore, more convenient for the user and people around him.
