Smoking is the largest single contributor to poor physical health and increased mortality in people with serious mental illnesses. The aim of the study was to investigate the utility of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) as a harm reduction intervention in this population.
Quantifying relative harm caused by inhaling the aerosol emissions of vapourised nicotine products compared with smoking combustible tobacco is an important issue for public health.
This fact sheet reports the results of the ASH Smokefree GB surveys on the use of electronic cigarettes among adults and young people in Great Britain. ASH included questions on electronic cigarette use in this annual survey starting in 2010 with questions addressed only to smokers.
This report aims to provide an update on harm reduction in the UK, particularly but not exclusively in relation to the role of e-cigarettes.
