    Vaping is backed in a Review by Public Health.

    Look how far we have come in the last 9 or so years when we started our protestations against smokers and smoking.

    I am changing the start of this thread because I inadvertently put in an incorrect link. The link below is one of the main links from which the BBC took it programmed remarks.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episod...ttes-committee

    Basically it deals with the results of several years of study in the use of vaporising, that is the use of E Cigarettes, and the positve things which have come from these studies as against the minimal amount of negatives that were found. ..

    Once more my apologies but it is a subject which is well worth airing as it would appear that much of the bad news about vaping was influenced by reports from the Tobacco Industry. .....Neil

    One thing I know for sure is that I’d much rather be around someone smoking an eCigarette than someone smoking tobacco.

        Completely contradicts last week's report.

        See: https://www.theguardian.com/science/...study-suggests

        They also used to tell us that cigarettes were good for your health.

          Cant stand either, If you want to stop smoking, STOP, I am all for any help to get off tobacco, For a while, However I am seeing a growing number of people vaping constantly, One of my friends sucks on it constantly rather like a dummy, Very annoying indeed. And then there are those younger ones who have never smoked and started vaping as it is deemed "cool " . Ridiculous. Jan.

            I agree Jan, it takes nothing more than willpower. For pity's sake it's only a tobacco addiction, not heroin............Wilba

              Tobacco and alcohol are drugs condoned by the government - look at the tax take.

              What is the tax take on e-cigarettes??

              I heard this morning that a NHS trust is considering allowing patients to use vipers whilst occupying NHS beds - nuts - JMO. Trying to confirm the source - apparently in the newspapers.

                Nicotine is more addictive than heroin, apparently.

                    Then all the more reason to stop people using it I say. Jan.

                      As an ex heavy smoker (35 years in total) I know that it is extremely difficult to stop smoking. I managed it with the help of nicotine patches and a mild tranquiliser each day but even with that help I had a minor breakdown in the process. My son stopped smoking with the help of vaping and he was a 20 a day smoker so for that reason I would endorse vaping as a means to an end.

                        Yes, that is why I put it on here. The previous thread was full of inconsistencies whereas this is a fully backed British review.

                        The idea is that if and when E-cigarettes are prescribed they will be types that have been selected and tested before being prescribed whereas much of the previous study's samples were those produced by dubious suppliers. I am not saying this as a fact but there was a strong possibility that the previous study was subsidised by the Tobacco Industry.

                        Anyway you can read the current article and see the authenticity as well. .....Neil

                          This

                          https://www.gov.uk/government/news/e...andmark-review

                          is quite a long and well referenced Review produced by so highly eminent people and it includes some solid facts and finding plus the positive measures which should follow.

                          One of those measures is that from October 2018 it will be illegal to sell E-cigarettes to anyone under the age of 18 or to buy e-cigarettes for them.

                          I would trust it far more than the Guardian's production. .....Neil

                            Only my opinion, but I think problems will arise because of the failure to regulate the content of the vaping liquids used by the 'vapers'. Cheap imported liquids have been flooding the market and there is no indication of the content. If someone can find a liquid for 99p they will not purchase a 10ml bottle for £2.50 regardless of the content. For me this is a great cause for concern as some of my family members have used vaping as a means of stoppng smoking but have not yet weaned themselves off the habit of needing a 'prop' from hand to mouth!
