- No Fire, No Smoke: The Global State of Tobacco Harm Reduction

These data suggest there are large numbers of smokers both trying e-cigarettes and using them, and who have quit smoking altogether. Coupled with the rapid decline in smoking, to 15.1 percent, this indicates a strong association between the rise of e-cigarettes and the ongoing decline in smoking. There appears to be a new landscape of smoking cessation. E-cigarettes are now the most common method used to quit smoking, having overtaken NRT, medication and behavioural support by 2013 in England.

These changes are also reflected in the use of stop smoking services. The UK has a network of specialist stop smoking services and help with quitting is also provided through a wide range of NHS services. They have seen a rapid drop in customers since 2011-12. In part this might be due to reduced resources, but is also likely to be linked to the fact that people now have additional ways to quit.
