An e-cigarette is a device that allows you to inhale nicotine in a vapour rather than smoke. E-cigarettes don't contain tobacco and don't produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most damaging constituents in cigarette smoke. E-cigarettes aren’t completely risk free but they carry a small fraction of the risk of cigarettes. Quitting with an e-cigarette is particularly effective when combined with expert face-to-face support.

Public Health England advises: ‘smokers should consider switching completely and vapers should stop smoking. We are as certain as ever that e-cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking, which kills almost 220 people in England every day.’ Further details on the facts and myths around e-cigarettes can be found here
