Smoking Rates Decline Thanks to Vaping

Health organisations are seeing the smoking rates in the UK falling at a fantastic rate, vaping is playing a big part in the decline! For the first time there are now more vapers in the UK than smokers.

More Vapers, Less Smokers!

Reports by ASH (Action on Smoking and Health) show that the number of people who have quit smoking and are currently vaping now outweighs the number of tobacco smokers.

  • There are more than 1.5 MILLION smoke-free vapers in the UK
  • Compared to the 1.3 MILLION people who are still smoking.
  • The number of people using e-cigarettes has more than doubled in the past 5 years.

This is momentous considering that at its highest the UK’s smoking rates were as high as 82% for men in 1948 and 45% for women throughout the 60s.

Public Health England and E-Cigarettes

Public Health England & E-Cigarettes

E-cigarettes have quickly become the most popular stop smoking aid in England. Public Health England (PHE) has recently published an article urging smokers to combine ‘the most popular with the most effective’ by pairing the use of e-cigarettes with face to face support from their local stop smoking service. They are also encouraging stop smoking clinics to ensure they are able to give patients the appropriate support when quitting with a vape device, and that clinics are e-cigarette friendly.

This includes staff maintaining up to date knowledge of vaping products and e-liquids and developing a relationship with local retailers.

Quitting Using E-Cigs

If you would like to join the millions of people who have successfully quit smoking using e-cigarettes, then there is no time like the present! As recommended by Public Health England, combining the use of e-cigarettes with the facilities and tools available at your local stop smoking clinic is the best way to ensure you have the most opportunity for success.

Take a look at the NHS Smokefree website for advice and to find your local stop smoking service and access the support available in your area.

We highly recommend that where possible you go in to your local vape shop and discuss your needs with a member of staff who can recommend which devices will suit your vaping needs. We have 25+ Evapo stores in the UK and our friendly staff are there to help you find the correct device and e-liquids for you.

To find your local store take a look at our online vape shop website!
