VApril Is Here — and Electric Tobacconist Is Proud to Support It
It’s time to get out and shout about the huge benefits of vaping over smoking! It's vaping month all over the UK in April, as the country has its first ever vaping awareness and education campaign, designed to help get people off cigarettes and keep them that way. Here at Electric Tobacconist, we're thrilled to see this happening and we support all efforts to stub out deadly smoking for good. VApril, a combination of "vaping" and "April" is, the brainchild of one of the country's main representative bodies, the UK Vaping Industry Association, of which we are a member. It works in a number of areas, including education, regulation and promotion in a fast-growing sector that it says is now worth around £1 billion. Currently there are almost 3 million vapers in Britain, many of them former smokers who managed to finally kick the unhealthy habit by using e-cigarettes instead. The number of smokers around the nation continues to fall, but there are still around 9 million people smoking and presenting a major challenge to their health and our health services. All this leads to 100,000 needless deaths in the UK each year.
