Smoke-free alternatives to smoking cigarettes

Smoke-free alternatives to smoking cigarettes

For many adult smokers considering switching from smoking cigarettes to something considered a potentially better alternative to continued smoking, the extensive number of alternatives readily available on the market may seem astonishing - even overwhelming. Knowing where to start in the quest to select a suitable smoke-free alternative begins with understanding more about these products – from heated tobacco and e-cigarettes to nicotine pouches. This article explores what these products are, and how they work.

Importantly, these wide-ranging product types present an alternative to continued smoking. However, these products are not risk-free and one reason why this is the case is the presence of addictive nicotine.

What are the smoke-free alternatives to smoking cigarettes?

With so many options available, it’s worth researching and considering the different types of smoke-free products available in shops or online. You might have heard of some, or all, of these.

    Electronic cigarettes

    One of the alternatives to smoking are vape devices, also known as e-cigarettes. These utilise an e-liquid - typically containing propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerine - that produces a vapour when heated. There are three different types of vape, from mod systems to vape pens and pod devices.

    Heated tobacco devices

    As an alternative to smoking, heated tobacco devices heat tobacco and do not burn it. This is different from cigarettes, which rely on combustion to deliver tobacco.

Why choose smoke-free alternatives?

The dangers of smoking cigarettes are widely known. Cigarettes burn tobacco, reaching high temperatures, and producing ash, tar, and smoke with high number and levels of harmful chemicals. Cigarette smoke is a complex mixture of over 6.000 chemical substances, around 100 of which have been linked to smoking-related diseases by public health authorities.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Smoking alternatives are not risk free. They deliver nicotine, which is addictive. They are intended for use by adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products and are by no means a cessation method.
The best option to reduce the health risks associated with the use of tobacco and nicotine products is to quit their use altogether. However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, switching completely to vaping or heated tobacco products could be a better choice than continuing to smoke.
