A parliamentary group, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Smoking and Health, has recently called for the legal age for buying cigarettes to be raised from 18 to 21.   It's part of their aim to achieve the "smoke free" generation, which is trying to prevent the newest generation from picking up the habit in the first place.   The cause has also been picked up by the Imperial College London's respiratory specialist Dr Nicholas Hopkinson.   The parliamentary group claims...
How E-Cigarettes Can Help With Your Credit Card Debt   If you are like the millions of households in the UK, you may have some form of credit card debt. On average we each have £2,688 unpaid debt on credit cards, and for many of us that can be difficult or almost impossible to get rid of.   However, if you're a smoker, what if we told you there's a way to get healthier and to help with that debt?...
Third Hand Smoke is the Unknown Danger from Smoking. 3rd hand smoke is one of those phrases that many of us may have heard before, but we may not really understand what it is, let alone worry about it.    But we really should. Although it doesn't have the immediate impact of 2nd hand smoke, 3rd hand smoke lasts much longer, is much harder to detect and has the same long-term impacts.   Like most things linked to cigarettes, the...
A new study has found that e-cigarettes are almost twice as likely to help you quit for good compared to patches, gum and all other nicotine replacements. The study found that by replacing gum, patches, lozenges, sprays or inhalators with an E-cigarette, the percentage of people who were able to completely quit almost doubled from 9.9% for those using nicotine replacement product to 18% for those who switched to e-cigarettes! This is great news for people who want to quit...
Even a single cigarette is likely to hook you into smoking a study has shown. Cigarettes are addictive, even the most vocal smoking supporter (if they exist anymore) would agree with that. But what many of us don't realise is how addictive they can really be. A study has come out that shows that almost 82% of people in the UK who tried smoking went onto being daily smokers. Considering that most of us found the first cigarette we ever...
Public Health England Releases a new video which illustrates the effects of cigarettes vs. E-Cigarettes. A new year means New Year's resolutions, and one of the most common resolutions is to quit smoking. E-cigarettes seem like the obvious choice for these smokers looking to quit, but many of the 6 million smokers left in the UK are sceptical.   Even though Public Health England (PHE) has stated that “E-Cigarettes are 95% less harmful than cigarettes” for over 3 years now,...
Great news has come out recently, over 3.2 Million people have now switched to vaping. And even better over half of them have given up smoking for good!   ASH (Action on Smoking and Health) conducted a study and found that more people than ever have taken up vaping as a way to get away from smoking.   In fact, this is a continuation of a study from last year, and it found that the use of vaping had gone...
  It's a common fact that 2nd hand smoke from cigarettes hurts the people around you, but what most smokers don't know is that that smoking can seriously affect their pets too.   In fact, as they are much smaller than humans, 2nd and 3rd hand smoke can hurt them even more!   If you are a smoker and love your pet, then give this blog a read!     2nd (and 3rd) Hand Smoke   For the few people...
A report on e-cigarettes, by the science and technology MPs' committee was recently heard in parliament which said e-cigarettes should be deregulated and promoted to help smokers. There have been mixed reactions to some of the suggestions, even within the e-cigarette industry, with many people noting that at least some of these regulations were implemented for a reason. But other suggestions have been more widely praised as a way to help even more people with e-cigarettes. So should the e-cigarette...
You may have read about a new study earlier this week saying that e-cigarettes are harming your lungs. The study got national headlines with a variety of overblown headlines claiming e-cigs are dangerous.   Before you panic though there are few things to note about this study and its importance.   When looking at such a widely publicised study it's always good to look at the size, the method of testing and what it is actually claiming. It’s very easy...
