Bristol Town Encourages Smokers to Switch to E-cigarettes

bristol-city-council

Council workers brandishing e-cigarettes met smokers in Bristol last week in an attempt to encourage them to switch.  

Alongside this, council workers also visited several vape shops with carbon monoxide testing kits; to show how much lower the levels are in vapers. 

It is believed that this is the first time a council has done this. Bristol has a 21.3% smoking rate, but fortunately also has forward thinking individuals that are championing e-cigarettes.  

“Many people do not realize that the vaporizer is less dangerous than conventional cigarettes” 

…said Professor Marcus Munafo, professor of Experimental Psychology at Bristol University, who’s research focuses on understanding pathways into, and the consequences of, health behaviours and mental health, with a particular focus on tobacco and alcohol use. 

Bristol, home to a well know tobacco cigarette brand want to advise their long-term smokers that e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than tobacco, and are using the public health message that “Electronic cigarettes are a better option than tobacco.”  

The Bristol Post reporting on this bold move also did its best to dispel many of the myths surrounding e-cigarettes, namely the renormalization myth, the gateway myth and the actual small number of accidents involving e-cigarettes.
