Important information about IQOS

PMI offers a variety of quality, scientifically substantiated smoke-free products that are better choices than continued smoking. Cigarette smoking causes serious diseases and is addictive. Without question, the best decision any smoker can make is to quit tobacco and nicotine use altogether. PMI’s smoke-free products are for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products. We do not offer PMI’s smoke-free products to people who have never used tobacco or nicotine products or who have quit using tobacco and nicotine products. Our smoke-free products are not an alternative to quitting and are not designed as cessation aids. Minors should not use tobacco or nicotine in any form.
