Do e-cigarettes and “dual use” undermine quitting
11:40 - 11:55
Science, Safety and Health Effects
Concerns have been raised that the widespread availability and popularity of e-cigarettes may undermine smokers’ desire to quit. In this talk, I will discuss the evidence around these concerns, exploring (i) whether e-cigarettes are ‘renormalising’ smoking in public places, thus undoing some of the progress that has been achieved by Smokefree legislation, and (ii) whether dual use of e-cigarettes and tobacco perpetuates nicotine addiction, making smokers who vape less likely to try to quit.
