Good Conversion Practices and Our Duty to Inform

Before we tell what you shouldn’t do on our Social Media Accounts, here are some things you should know about IQOS.

PMI offers a variety of quality, scientifically substantiated smoke-free products that are better alternative than continued smoking. Our vision is that our smoke-free products will one day replace cigarettes.

  1. 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.
  2. PMI’s smoke-free products are for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use other nicotine products.
  3. 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.
  4. PMI’s smoke-free products are not risk free and contain nicotine, which is addictive. Switching to a smoke-free product is, however, a better alternative than smoking.
  5. We support our adult smoke-free product users in their journey to full conversion through education and guidance.
  6. For consumers to fully understand the difference of smoke-free products, they must switch completely and abandon smoking permanently.
  7. Minors should not use tobacco or nicotine in any form.
  8. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, diabetics and people with heart problems or severe high blood pressure should not use any tobacco or nicotine products.
