Long term smoking relapse prevention – understanding trajectories of e-cigarette use

15:50 - 16:05

In this presentation Dr Notley will discuss pathways through smoking cessation by vaping, considering switching, patterns of dual use and more gradual approaches to cessation. Dr Notley is a social scientist who has led the ‘E Cigarette Trajectories’ (ECtra) project, initially funded by Cancer Research UK, alongside research with vape shops and a wider programme of work focused on developing interventions for relapse prevention. Collecting longitudinal mixed methods data this study has used qualitative data to understand and describe the user experience of stopping and staying stopped from smoking by switching to vaping. The study draws on the nuances of individual patterns of behaviour, identity transitions in quitting smoking, interactions with developing technology, and the fundamental importance of social context in supporting long term relapse prevention.
