From smokers experiences the e-cigarettes are like inhaling vapour with a concentration of nicotine. In 2010 it was just the 8% of the smokers who have tried it, but nowadays the percentage has increased to the half part of them and still going up. There are around two million people using them and probably it will increase the numbers.
Why? It’s easy: a new study suggest that the smokers who use a cigarette to quit are more likely to succeed than those who use willpower alone or buy nicotine replacement therapies, such as parches or gums.
So this new e-cigarettes are cautiously positive but unfortunately the government wants to restrict their use in public place.
Nevertheless professor Robert Wast says that these e-cigarettes could improve public health and even to stop the smokers smoke. Not only for the smokers, for the environment too. He confirms that the vapour of the e-cigarettes is less risky than the smoking one.
From my point of view, I think that they must let smoking e-cigarettes in public because they are not contradictory for people and far from the environment.
