Marlboro maker Philip Morris just said it’s done with cigarettes
Ditching a nasty smoking habit is a popular New Year's Resolution around the world. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't — and as a former smoker myself all I can tell you is if you really want to quit, just keep trying and it'll stick eventually — but now one of the world's most popular cigarette manufacturers is announcing that it's trying to kick the habit as well. Philip Morris International, which owns brands including Marlboro, Chesterfield, and Parliament, just declared that it is now seeking to abandon smoking products for good.
"We’ve built the world’s most successful cigarette company, with the world’s most popular and iconic brands," Philip Morris says on its website. "Now we’ve made a dramatic decision. We will be far more than a leading cigarette company. We’re building PMI’s future on smoke-free products that are a much better choice than cigarette smoking."
