Single use vapes also known as e-cigarettes, play and important role in people looking to quit smoking tobacco.

Why are e-cigarettes important?

E-cigarettes / recyclable single use vapes are a great introduction to vaping without putting a dent in your pocket.

They are also great for the older generation and people with learning disabilities or other mental disorders because of their ease of use.

They also give people the chance to try different flavours to find what suits them best.

No messing about with tanks, coils, settings etc., you just puff and go. They also replicate a cigarette and the hand to mouth action ex-smokers miss.

They are also great to fit in your pocket or handbag when travelling or going out and you can carry a spare without the worry of your battery running out.

I also supply them to emergency workers who can’t carry a big vape around but can get a nicotine boost while on long jobs e.g. the Fire Service.

When it comes down to it, it’s a question of choice.

What does the NHS say about e-cigarettes?

In recent years, e-cigarettes have become a very popular stop smoking aid in the UK.

Also known as vapes or e-cigs, they’re far less harmful than cigarettes, and can help you quit smoking for good.

They are not recommended for non-smokers and cannot be sold to people under 18 years old.

What are e-cigarettes and how do they work?

An e-cigarette is a device that allows you to inhale nicotine in a vapour rather than smoke.

E-cigarettes do not burn tobacco and do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most damaging elements in tobacco smoke.

They work by heating a liquid (called an e-liquid) that typically contains nicotine, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, and flavourings.

Using an e-cigarette is known as vaping.

Many thousands of people in the UK have already stopped smoking with the help of an e-cigarette. There’s evidence that they can be effective.

A 2021 review found people who used e-cigarettes to quit smoking, as well as having expert face-to-face support, can be up to twice as likely to succeed as people who used other nicotine replacement products, such as patches or gum.

How safe are e-cigarettes?

In the UK, e-cigarettes are tightly regulated for safety and quality.

Vaping is not completely risk-free, but it poses a small fraction of the risk of smoking cigarettes. The long-term risks of vaping are not yet clear.

E-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, two of the most harmful elements in tobacco smoke.

The liquid and vapour contain some potentially harmful chemicals also found in cigarette smoke, but at a much lower level.

What about risks from nicotine?

While nicotine is the addictive substance in cigarettes, most of the harm from smoking comes from the thousands of other chemicals in tobacco smoke, many of which are toxic.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) has been widely used for many years to help people stop smoking and is a safe treatment.

A team of researchers led by Drs. Karin Kasza and Andrew Hyland at the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has been examining data collected between 2014 and 2019 in the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study. PATH is a long-term study of tobacco-use patterns and health outcomes in the United States. It is funded by NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the FDA Center for Tobacco Products.


The team, which includes NIDA and FDA scientists, previously reported that daily cigarette smokers with no plans to quit became more likely to change their plans to quit if they used e-cigarettes daily. In their new study, the researchers examined whether e-cigarette use was associated with quitting cigarette smoking among daily smokers who weren’t planning to quit. Results appeared in JAMA Network Open on December 28, 2021.

The researchers looked at 1,600 adults who smoked cigarettes daily, did not use e-cigarettes, and were not planning to quit smoking at the beginning of the study. About 6% quit cigarettes altogether during the study. Another 4.5% reduced their smoking to less than one cigarette a day.

The team compared quit rates between those who took up e-cigarettes and those who did not. Those who were using e-cigarettes daily at the end of the study were 8-fold more likely to quit cigarettes altogether. They were also almost 10-fold more likely to stop smoking cigarettes every day.

Top Reasons Why Disposable Vapes Are So Popular

Disposable vapes have proven to be popular around the world, often being picked up more readily than other vaping kits. A recent UK review highlighted the change in popularity, with disposable vapes being used by 4.6% of vapers in 2021. Now in 2022, this figure has shot up to 15.2% of vapers using disposables.

But why are disposables so popular?

One of the biggest selling points of disposables is their undeniable convenience of them. Disposable vapes are ready to go straight from the box and require no maintenance. This makes them perfect for newcomers to vaping who have no prior experience with vaping but are looking to quit smoking. Most disposables are draw-activated which makes them even closer to the cigarette-smoking experience that smokers crave from vaping.


Buying disposable vapes is also convenient. You can pick one up from many shops including popular supermarkets, ideal for when the cravings hit. Perfectly slim-line, these devices fit in your pocket and are much cheaper alternatives to heavy, mod kits that you might not want to take out and about with you.

Many people have claimed that disposable vapes taste better than normal vape juice, and there’s a good reason for that. The cotton wicks inside disposable vapes are much more saturated than normal kits because they’re made pre-filled. Most disposable vapes are sat in storage after being assembled before being sold, and this means that their cotton wicks are sat soaking up E-Liquid sometimes for months before use.
