New ASH data suggests there are now 2.6 million ‘vapers’ in Britain, up from 2.1 million in 2014. Nearly all of this increase is attributable to a rise in the number of ex-smokers using electronic cigarettes.
The campaign group said the figures showed the value of electronic cigarettes in helping smokers give up tobacco but also warned of a worrying increase in people falsely believing they are as harmful as or even more dangerous, with nearly a quarter (22%) believing this compared to 15% last year.
People wanting to stop smoking using these products can still get help from the Stop Smoking Services.
