As they are one of the world’s largest cancer treatment and prevention organisations, we are incredibly pleased to see Cancer Research UK’s latest briefing on electronic cigarettes. More and more research is coming out every month showing just how much of a difference vaping has made in the lives of so many former smokers. Even so, it is fantastic when respected organisations such as CRUK show their support for this industry.

CRUK has long been a supporter of electronic cigarettes as a method of quitting smoking, as vaping is up to 95% less harmful than smoking.  Smoking is the largest cause of preventable cancer worldwide, and in the UK smoking is responsible for 15% of cancer cases. A recent study commissioned by Cancer Research UK in England showed that the use of e-cigarettes may have helped 18,000 smokers quit in 2015. As well as this, vaping produces far less second-hand vapour than cigarettes do second-hand smoke, and this vapour contains far fewer harmful chemicals than second-hand smoke.

Currently about 2.9 million adults (6% of the population) in Great Britain vape regularly. And in 2017, for the first time ever, there were more ex-smokers using e-cigarettes than there were current cigarette smokers. Over half of vapers are now ex-smokers. 

We are very excited so see that so many people are choosing to quit smoking, which is why we offer such a wide range of products in our stores and online. We believe that vaping is most effective when you choose a device that suits you. So whether that's a simple and pocket friendly starter kit, an easy-to-use pod system or a powerful adjustable sub-ohm kit, we have something to help you quit the way you choose to. Our e-liquid ranges in strength from 0mg, nicotine free, to 18mg, so you can start off with as much or as little nicotine as you like and reduce your chosen strength if or when you feel ready.  

The Vapourcore Proto 650 Complete kit is fantastic for beginners and comes with a free bottle of e-liquid

But don't just take our word for it - have a look at our Your First Vape Kit page where you can view our choice of kits that are perfect for beginners. If you would like tailored advice you can send us an email at and we can help you pick a device and e-liquid that's right for you. We would also recommend visiting one of our stores, where you can see the kits in person, sample our extensive range of e-liquids and chat to our friendly expert staff.
