E cigarettes

E cigarettes are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to smoking or as a way to quit smoking. There is an assumption that, as they only contain nicotine, they are less harmful than tobacco. However, e cigarettes are not regulated which means that you can’t be sure of the ingredients or the amount of nicotine they contain.

In West Sussex, health professionals do not support the use of e cigarettes as a tool to quit smoking. This is due to the lack of regulation and lack of research into their effectiveness in helping people quit. Leading experts are also cautious about e cigarettes as the harms they can cause are still unknown.

The government has recently banned the sale of e cigarettes to under 18s. As 80% of adult smokers first started smoking before the age of 20, this hopefully will reduce the likelihood that young people will become smokers.

More information about e cigarettes can be found in this leaflet or from the West Sussex Stop Smoking Service (telephone 0300 100 1823).

Have your say on new rules for the advertising of electronic cigarettes

The national advertising committees (CAP and BCAP) are consulting on proposals to introduce new rules for the advertising of electronic cigarettes (e cigarettes).

We would like people across West Sussex to have their say on these proposals.

You can view the consultation document here.

The consultation will close at 5pm on Monday 28 April 2014.
