Have you thought of vaping to help set a quit date?

Published: Friday, 4th January 2019


Around 2.5 million adults are using e-cigarettes in England and vaping has helped thousands of people successfully quit.

However around 44% of cigarette smokers still either wrongly believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or are not aware that vaping poses much lower risks to health. 

Last week, as part of the annual Smokefree ‘Health Harms’ campaign, Public Health England released a film which you can see below, showing the devastating harms caused by every cigarette smoked and how these can be avoided by switching to using an e-cigarette or other kind of quit aid. The most successful quit attempts are not driven by willpower alone but use a combination of stop smoking support approaches.
