Guardian covers the latest ASH/YouGov e-cigarettes use among adults report
An estimated 4.3 million people are using e-cigarettes according to 2022 findings, up from about 800,000 a decade ago in what Action on Smoking and Health, which produced the report, called a “vaping revolution”. Hazel Cheeseman, ASH Deputy Chief Executive, said to the Guardian that the increase in smokers switching to vaping was “great news”. “They can be lifesaving tools for those struggling to quit. At the same time, we can’t rely on vaping to fully solve the problem of smoking. We must address the recent increase in youth vaping and put in place wider efforts to address smoking as vaping won’t work for everyone. The time for government action is now,” she said.
