STUB IT OUT Vaping fears are stopping smokers from quitting, campaigners warn

Four in 10 now believe e-cigarettes are as harmful or worse than traditional tobacco, according to Action on Smoking and Health. The figure was up from a third last year, with the charity claiming safety concerns about vapes could hamper the Government’s “Swap to Stop” scheme. The policy, announced earlier this year, saw around 1million smokers given a free vaping starter kit together with behavioural support to help them quit smoking.
