On February 24, the official website of the British government released the "Vaping in England: 2021 evidence update summary". The report mentions that quit smoking with electronic cigarettes is the most common means in the UK in 2020, and 27.2% of quitters have used e-cigarette products.
Since the release of the first report in 2014, it has been released for 7 years. Through authoritative research and data support, the 2021 report once again strongly proves that e-cigarettes can assist in smoking cessation.
Quit smoking with electronic cigarettes become the first choice for smokers in the UK in 2020
The report pointed out that in 2020, 27.2% of people who tried to quit smoking used e-cigarette products. In addition, 18.2% of smokers used nicotine replacement therapies (such as nicotine patches and chewing gum), and 4.4% of smokers used prescription drugs to quit smoking. Not only that, the proportion of using e-cigarettes to quit smoking is higher in all parts of the UK than other smoking cessation methods. For example, 49% of smokers in Yorkshire in the United Kingdom choose to use e-cigarettes to quit smoking, while in the Humber area, this figure is even as high as 78%.
Obviously, e-cigarettes have become the first choice for those trying to quit smoking in the UK in 2020. According to statistics from the British Smoking Cessation Service, from 2019 to 2020, those who use e-cigarettes to quit smoking in local smoking cessation services have a smoking cessation success rate of between 59.7 and 74%.
British Ministry of Public Health: Quit smoking with electronic cigarettes effect through a recognized
"Quit smoking and reduce harm" has always been an important issue that the British government is concerned about and is trying to improve. The UK is one of the best countries in the world for tobacco control, and it is also the first country to clearly officially support e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation tool. In the UK, more than 70,000 people died from diseases caused by smoking in 2019. The use of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid can help about 50,000 smokers to quit smoking every year. It has become a very important task for the British government to strengthen the dissemination of common sense of smoking cessation among smokers.
The promotion of electronic cigarettes with "harm reduction" as the main value has become one of the choices of the British government. As early as 2015, the Department of Public Health of the United Kingdom issued a 113-page independent report. The report summarizes: Although e-cigarettes are not 100% safer, they are 95% less harmful than tobacco. Policies should encourage smokers to use e-cigarettes as a key tobacco control strategy to reduce the harm caused by smoking.
"Whether e-cigarettes can effectively quit smoking" has always been a topic of concern. And more and more research reports issued by international authoritative organizations not only rectify the name of e-cigarettes, but also provide a basis for rational supervision of e-cigarettes. The latest report released by the Department of Public Health of the United Kingdom once again emphasized the "quit smoking and harm reduction" measures focusing on the promotion of e-cigarettes, expressing the hope that cigarettes can be eliminated by 2030, so that smokers can quit smoking completely, or switch to lower-risk nicotine Transmission system.
