Allen Carr of “Easy Way”, a reputable stop smoking organisation commissioned research company Atomik to survey
1000 e-cigarette users in the UK on their attitudes and behaviours to e-cigarettes and smoking. The survey was carried out in February 2014.
The survey said a shocking 84% of smokers still smoke normal conventional cigarettes as well as e-cigarettes. 47% of e-cigarette users only started using them in an attempt to quit smoking, and 39% started using e-cigarettes to cut down on the number of normal cigarettes they smoked.
John Dicey, Managing Director and Senior Therapist for Allen Carr’s Easyway comments “A major foundation stone of the harm-reduction plan is that e-cigarettes are far less harmful for a smoker’s health than cigarettes. Considered in that context the argument seems to have at least some merit. But if the results of our survey provide an accurate snapshot of e-cigarette user behaviour then this is extremely bad news for those who have championed e-cigarettes on the basis of harm reduction. Perhaps it never occurred to those people that many e-cigarette users would simply smoke when they are able to, and switch to vaping when not able to? In fact our interpretation of the figures indicate that the users of e-cigarettes might well be imbibing even more nicotine as a result of their dual use of cigarettes and e-cigarettes i.e. using e-cigarettes at times when previously they might have abstained entirely.
Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking organisation favour anything that enables a smoker to become free from their addiction and it’s tragic that rather than helping smokers to quit – smokers are being funnelled into behaviour that will ensure they remain addicted, continue to suffer the mental and financial hardship caused by that, and continue to do tremendous harm to their health. The results of our survey indicate that the nicotine time bomb continues to tick.”
John Dicey, Managing Director and Senior Therapist for Allen Carr’s Easyway comments further “this survey seems to indicate that the policy of harm reduction may be floundering already and, even worse, be leading a whole generation of smokers back into the wilderness whereby they become blind and blissfully unaware of the damage being caused by their addiction. There are only three winners here; Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs who will continue to tax smokers (and in time vapers) to the hilt and the nicotine industry ie Big Pharma and Big Tobacco both of whom are battling each other to supply e-cigarettes IN ADDITION TOtheir core traditional nicotine products.”
