Using the national Swap to Stop scheme, we will provide smokers, aged 18+ with free vaping kits to help them.

There can be some confusion about vapes, but evidence shows that vaping is far less harmful than smoking and is proven to be one of the most effective ways to help you quit.

Vaping is not completely harmless and our vaping kits are only available to smokers who are aged 18+ to help you to quit and quit for good.

Around 2.5 million adults are using e-cigarettes in England, and they have helped many thousands of people successfully quit. Our expert Health and Wellbeing Coaches can give you advice about the right device and nicotine strength for you, how to use a vape, plus extra support to help you succeed.


What is vaping?

Vapes are electronic devices that let you inhale nicotine in an aerosol, or vapour, instead of smoke.This is done by heating a solution (e-liquid) that typically contains propylene glycol, vegetableglycerine, flavourings and nicotine.

Vapes come in a variety of models, including pod devices, vape pens and vape mods. E-liquids come in different nicotine strengths so you can controlthe amount you need to manage cravings and otherwithdrawal symptoms.

Is vaping harmful?

Vaping isn’t risk-free, but it’s substantially less harmful than smoking. It exposes users to far fewer toxins and at lower levels than smoking cigarettes. Switching to vaping significantly reduces your exposure to toxins that can cause cancer, lung disease, heart disease and stroke. These diseases are not caused by nicotine, which is relatively harmless to health.

Vaping vs Smoking

Cigarettes release thousands of different chemicals when they burn. Many are poisonous and up to 70 of them cause cancer. Most of these harmful chemicals, including tar and carbon monoxide, are not contained in vape aerosol.

In 2022 UK experts reviewed the international evidence and found that in the short and medium term, vaping poses a small fraction of the risks of smoking.
