E-cigarettes (vaping devices) and reducing harm from tobacco

If you are struggling to stop completely then it is important that you try to limit the harm from tobacco to yourself and others. One popular way is to swap or reduce your smoking by using e-cigarettes or vaping products. Although these products are unlicensed and there are still some concerns around their use, we know that they are at least 95% safer than continuing to smoke tobacco. More information on e-cigarettes is provided below.
