Smoking in 2018: Where are We Now?

Smoking in 2018: Where are We Now?

With every year comes a new study about the dangers of tobacco consumption, however smoking rates remain high all over the world despite ongoing health awareness campaigns.

Governments and health bodies the world over have put in place initiatives to reduce smoking such as national cessation services, tax hikes and advertising bans. However, even with all of these initiatives it is still estimated that eight million people will die from tobacco related diseases by the year 2030.

And it’s not just the smokers themselves who are at risk, numerous studies have also shown the massive health risks posed to non-smokers through second hand smoke. While many nations have put anti-smoking legislation in place, it is estimated that approximately just one in five people are still legally protected from exposure to second-hand smoke.

There is good news however, as the emergence of vaping means that there now exists a much safer alternative to tobacco. In fact, long term research by Cancer Research UK has demonstrated just how effective e-cigarettes can be in the battle to quit smoking. The most pertinent stat of the investigation revealed that e-cigarette users had 97% lower rates of NNAL, a chemical linked with higher rates of lung cancer.

Studies have revealed that vaping is easily one of the best ways to kick the smoking habit. In fact, 40.8% of smokers who had used vaping to quit had completely eliminated tobacco from their lives after one year. This is immensely successful when compared to traditional methods such as nicotine patches, gum and going cold turkey which resulted in only 5% of quitters remaining smoke-free twelve months after. This stat prompts the question: is the money quitters are spending on such products really worth it?
