- Burning Issues: The Global State of Tobacco Harm Reduction 2020
We noted in our previous report the significant rise in vaping and decline in smoking since 2011. Around 7% of the adult population in Great Britain currently vapes, which equates to around 6 million vapers. The year on year increase in vaping is matched by the continuing major reduction in smoking in the UK with under 15% of the adult population currently smoking.
