Jason Shankey saved £14k in three and half years after quitting smoking

Last July, a study published in the British Medical Journal found that e-cigarette users were indeed more likely than non-users to attempt to quit smoking-and be more successful at doing so.

'On the other hand, e-cigarettes may facilitate cigarette smoking initiation and confer substantial harm to adolescents and young adults once they are introduced to nicotine'.

Cllr Deborah Earl, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Community Services, added: "Our vision is to create a smoke free generation in Cumbria by 2022, to support our vision, and the national tobacco control plan, we are kick-starting our efforts by making 2018 the year when we join forces with our health partners to help Cumbria to become smoke free".

According to a study conducted on more than 50,000 Japanese people aged between 20 and 64, the tobacco smoking harms hearing and can even cause an increased risk of hearing loss which, however, is decreasing just after the smokers quit smoking.

Under-18s are nearly three times more likely to use e-cigarettes than adults, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although thought to be considerably safer than tobacco cigarettes, studies have linked long-term use to heart disease and cancer.

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that there are one billion smokers worldwide and 7.2 million deaths from smoking each year. She seemed to be listening."Meghna Vithleni, director of Breathe, encouraged more people to kick the habit and download an app, "Quit with Bella'".

There was a time where smoking didn't cause cancer, and hey, loads of doctors smoke!

"E-cigarette use is not covered by United Kingdom smoke-free laws, which prohibit smoking in enclosed public places and workplaces".

E-cigarettes are not an FDA-recommended quitting method, but they were found to be used more often than approved methods including the nicotine patch and nicotine gum. Vaping is a different activity to smoking, and should be treated as such.

On the other side, a person who was able to quit smoking with e-cigarettes would likely gain back about five years of their life.

A 2017 study found that almost a quarter of adult cigarette smokers used e-cigarettes to quit. "Negative coverage in the media has led to a misconception that vaping is unsafe, when the reality is that e-cigarettes have the potential to reduce the harm from tobacco caused to smokers, those around them and the wider society". Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement that vaping devices are by far the most common source of experimentation with tobacco products among children.
