To mark World Health Day, we thought we would shed a little light on the current evidence backing e-cigarettes as the most popular and most effective stop-smoking aid .

  • The Smoking Tool Kit Study published in 2019 found that in the past year, 28.6 percent of smokers have tried to stop, and in one month alone, there was a recorded 11.1 percent increase in the number of smokers making the switch to e-cigarettes.
  • In December last year, Public Health England launched a campaign reinforcing the message that vaping is 95 percent less harmful than smoking. The authors concluded with the message that health care professionals should be suggesting this smoking-cessation aid more often.
  • Quoted by both the NHS and Professor Peter Hajek of Queen Mary University of London, it was recently found that e-cigarettes were twice as effective as nicotine replacement products in helping smokers quit.
  • Despite a third of smokers having never tried the devices, The Department for Health and Social Care estimates that between 16,000 and 22,000 people successfully quit smoking using e-cigarettes each year, and by equipping the public with more knowledge on the subject these numbers could increase significantly.
