Blue Hole New Consumer Report, December 2 news, according to foreign news reports, the British government health monitoring agency NICE has issued a new guide on the use of e-cigarettes and smoking cessation services in the NHS environment. E-cigarettes help people quit smoking while promoting harm reduction. Another triumph of effectiveness.
This is the view of the British Electronic Cigarette Industry Association (UKVIA), which welcomes the new advice provided by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence for NHS staff and other healthcare professionals involved in helping people quit smoking.
The guide is called "Tobacco: Preventing Smoking, Promoting Smoking Cessation, and Treating Dependence." The guide states that e-cigarettes should be suitable for smoking adults and be used in conjunction with other nicotine replacement therapies (such as chewing gum and patches).
In addition, when the smoking cessation team "recommends that people (according to their age) the following options are combined with behavioral support, it is more likely that they will successfully quit smoking," e-cigarettes should also be included.
NICE points out that those who provide support or advice to quit smoking should emphasize:
Most health problems related to smoking are caused by other ingredients in tobacco smoke, not by nicotine
Any risk of using medicated nicotine products or other smoking cessation medications is much lower than smoking.
The health inspection agency also urges medical staff to explain how to use nicotine-containing products correctly, including ensuring that people know how to achieve high enough doses to:
Prevent compensatory smoking
Achieve their goal of stopping or reducing smoking.
The guide also stated that appropriate advice should be provided to show adults how to use e-cigarette devices containing nicotine, and explained:
E-cigarettes are not licensed drugs, but are regulated by tobacco and related departments
Product Regulations (2016)
There is insufficient evidence to know whether the use of e-cigarettes has long-term harm
E-cigarette use may be far less harmful than smoking
Any smoking is harmful, so people who use e-cigarettes should stop smoking altogether.
John Dunne, Director-General of the British Electronic Cigarette Industry Association, said: This new guide is another important milestone in mainstream acceptance of electronic cigarettes as a safe and effective way to quit smoking, and we have been working hard for many years.
"The arguments of the anti-e-cigarette lobby are getting weaker and more ridiculous day by day, to the point that now they are almost irrelevant."
In September, UKVIA partnered with the Smoke Free app to launch a national education campaign aimed at providing medical staff across the UK with the information they need to help smokers transition from combustible tobacco to e-cigarettes.
John Dunn continued: “For those of us who are advocating the use of e-cigarettes to reduce harm and protect health, we not only have science on our side, but now we are also getting more and more from the political and health service circles. The broad support of the company emphasizes that e-cigarettes are a legal tool to permanently stop smoking."
Louise Ross, business development manager for smoke-free apps, commented: “We welcome this guidance; we know that many of our app users have successfully quit smoking through a combination of behavioral support and nicotine-containing e-cigarettes.”
"We hope that healthcare professionals can now be more confident to support their patients in trying to smoke e-cigarettes to quit smoking. In this way, we should see a significant decline in smoking rates and more likely to achieve the 2030 smoke-free goal. "
