"There are many healthier alternatives to smoking out there, but we have the full right to claim that terssing is the healthiest one ever.", Marko Kutnjak, CEO of Terssing
Why do we smoke?
The most common answers from smokers are familiar: because they’re addicted, to relieve stress, because it helps them calm down, because their friends smoke, or because it goes so well with coffee, wine, or beer.
In other words, outside the raw chemical addiction from nicotine, smoking is fundamentally a habit. It becomes part of a million small rituals, from the cigarette-with-our-coffee to the cigarette-after-lovemaking. As they become more and more consistent, we start to rely on those rituals to make us feel good—happy, satisfied, relaxed, calm.
We envision terssing as a new kind of sensation. One that makes your lungs healthier instead of damaging them, one that saves you money instead of forcing you to spend it, and one that doesn’t include a devastating addiction.
A habit that fills the same social space as smoking—something to do with your friends, something to accompany your wine, coffee, or beer—but that leaves you feeling better and happier. The heart of this new habit is not smoke, but breath.
What is Terssing?
It’s the comforting feeling between your fingers or tucked into your pocket, ready when you need it.
It’s the long, deep inhalation slowing your breath and helping you find calm and focus.
It’s the casual elegance, held just right, reminiscent of Paul Newman or Audrey Hepburn.
A powerful new smoking alternative, and its only side effects are a clear mind, an undeniable sophistication, stronger lungs, better health, and a more meditative approach to life.
Terssing was created as a replacement for smoking: a way to enjoy familiar habits or a longed-for look without the dangers, harms, addiction, or restrictions that come with smoking.
Terssing is a new kind of smoking sensation, but one that’s completely, surprisingly,
refreshingly…free from smoke.
