You may well be wondering how does heat not burn work, Heat not Burn (HnB) devices are the next big thing in alternatives to smoking. They’re not a new idea, and previous attempts to bring them to market have flopped. In the last few years e-cigarettes have become popular, though, and that’s raised hopes that smokers might be ready to give HnB another try. If you’re still a smoker, and you’re tempted by the idea of a safer alternative but e-cigs don’t quite do it for you, here’s a quick guide to how the new products work.
I’ve been interested in Heat not Burn products for a few years now, as you probably guessed if you’ve been keeping up to date with this blog, so if there’s anything about them in the media I tend to check it out just to see what’s being said. This is why I ended up watching Channel 4’s Dispatches last night.
With the next decade just around the corner – scary thought that – it’s time for those dastardly things called “resolutions”. It is a well-known fact that the vast majority don’t stick to those past the first month. They usually consist of “go to the gym more”, “eat better”, “drink less” or “give up smoking (or pretend to)”.
Yes, pretend to give up smoking. As with many other smokers we all, as a matter of course, decided to try again to give up smoking at the turn of a new year. Don’t ask me why we did that. We just did. Some, admittedly, were successful and props to them. Others, like me and thousands of others, barely made it a month.
