Vaping clouds efforts by cessation clinics to help smokers quit for good

Mr Dandiar Rosli used to burn through a pack of cigarettes a day. In an effort to kick the habit a few years ago, he turned to electronic vapourisers, commonly known as vapes, believing they were a healthier choice that would wean him off cigarettes. Two months into vaping, however, he started waking up in the middle of the night with coughing fits that produced yellowish-green phlegm. Mr Dandiar, who was 34 back then, was also constantly breathless and panting even while sitting or lying down.


16.80% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 853,787 current smokers in Singapore 28.20% of men are current smokers but only 4.20% of women.
