Great Yarmouth smokers: Would you switch to vaping to kick the habit?


For smokers, kicking the habit used to mean patches, gum or just going cold turkey.

But Great Yarmouth’s smokers have been offered an increasingly popular way to quit – e-cigarettes and vaping.

In the past year, Norfolk County Council – working with Smokefree Norfolk and a vape company – have given out 742 vouchers for e-cigarettes and equipment worth £20 to people looking to quit smoking, as part of a county-wide strategy.

The voucher enables adult smokers to obtain a vape starter kit which includes a vape device and juice.

Smokefree Norfolk’s stop smoking advisors will then support them through their quit programme.

Smokefree Norfolk operations manager James Wade said: “Public Health England estimate e-cigarettes to be 95pc less harmful to health than tobacco cigarettes.

“If an adult who smokes makes the switch to an e-cigarette, they can improve the quality of their life long-term.”
