For the first time, less than half the people in Great Britain who use e-cigarettes also smoke tobacco cigarettes. The annual survey carried out by YouGov found around 2.9 million adults use e-cigarettes, with 1.3 million of these also smoking tobacco. The main reason given in the study for using e-cigarettes was to help stop smoking entirely. Professor Ann McNeill, from King’s College London, said finding that the majority of e-cigarette users are now ex-smokers was “encouraging news”. But the figures show many still ‘dual-use’ tobacco cigarettes alongside e-cigarettes.
