The most well-known alternatives to continued smoking are e-cigarettes, which involve inhaling a nicotine vapor created by heating a liquid.
There are also heated tobacco devices. Like the name suggests, they heat tobacco to a temperature that releases a nicotine-containing vapor that the user then inhales.
By not burning tobacco, e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products don’t create smoke and their aerosols should contain fewer and lower levels of harmful chemicals compared to cigarette smoke. These products are not risk-free, and they contain nicotine, which is addictive.
