E-cigarettes

An estimated 2.9 million adults in Great Britain currently use electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and of these 1.5 million people have completely stopped smoking cigarettes. The evidence suggests that e-cigarettes carry a fraction of the risk of cigarettes and can be particularly effective when combined with extra quitting support from your local stop smoking service. 

An e-cigarette (sometimes referred to as a vapouriser or vape) is a device that allows you to inhale nicotine in a vapour rather than smoke. E-cigarettes don’t burn tobacco and don’t produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most damaging elements in tobacco smoke. Using an e-cigarette is known as vaping.

E-cigarettes are currently not a licensed medical product which means our Stop Smoking Service is unable to provide them as a medication, however our Stop Smoking Practitioners can provide support to people who choose to buy and use an E-Cigarette. Take our assessment to find the right support to quit smoking for good.

This is the third time I've tried to give up smoking, and as I draw towards the end of this one, I feel confident that this will be the one that does it! Probably the most important aspect has been the relationship of trust and encouragement that has been fostered by my Stop Smoking Practitioner. The physiological aspect of the addiction should not be underestimated. I have found Nicotine patches to be an extremely effective substitute for tobacco. I recommend the Waltham Forest Stop Smoking service.
