    In literature, characters that smoke are often described as haggard and older looking, with facial features that are associated with worn leather.

    Smokeless cigarettes not as harmless as claimed, study says

    The new “heat not burn” smokeless cigarette devices are not as harmless as their manufacturer claims, according to a new study. iQOS – which stands for “I quit original smoking” – is made by Philip Morris International, best known as the manufacturer of Marlboro cigarettes.
