E-cigarettes now the most popular form of support to stop smoking

Posted by

"E-cigarettes have overtaken more traditional methods as the most widely used support for smokers wanting to quit," said Robert West, professor of health psychology at UCL.

"Their impact on public health at present comes from attracting people who would otherwise have tried to stop without any useful form of support.

"We estimate that e-cigarettes have probably helped around 20,000 smokers to quit each year, that wouldn't have otherwise."

Mike Knapton, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation.....

"This unique study shines a light on just how popular e-cigarettes have become as an aid for smokers trying to quit and we need to listen to what is helping people the most on their path to a smoke free life."
