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

The European Commission used Eurobarometer, a public opinion gathering resource, to conduct an extensive survey of e-cigarette use across the EU as part of a wider review of smoking habits. The key findings were that across the 28 countries of the EU in 2017:

» Around 15 percent of those aged 15 or over had tried an e-cigarette at least once – compared to 12 percent in 2014;

» Two percent of the total EU population are current users of e-cigarettes and this has remained stable since 2014;

» Almost one in twenty current smokers now currently use e-cigarettes or similar devices (four percent), and four percent of ex-smokers;

» Current use of e-cigarettes among people who have never smoked is rare. At most, one percent of e-cigarette users in any EU country are people who have never smoked.
