    "CONCLUSIONS
    . The increase in electronic cigarette use prevalence may have stalled
    . There is no evidence that electronic cigarettes are undermining motivation to quit or reduction in smoking prevalence
    . Use of e-cigarettes by never smokers or long-term ex-smokers is extremely rare"

    That was very interesting. I wonder why e-cigarette use seems to have plateaued in the last couple of years? I would have thought the opposite? Maybe all the stuff about regulation is scaring people off?

    Re Aids used to Quit smoking....
    The way I read the stats is that ecigs have come from a very low position Mid 2012 (10%ish) to overtake NRT as a quitting aid in Mid 2013 (30% ish) with then just a slight drop off (less than 1%). Ecigs remain higher than NRT in the latest results. Seems ecigs might actually work. I'd be pretty happy to have my market share go up by 20% and then drop off by 1% in a year. Wonder how BP feel about that?

    Yep there were certainly a few very worrying trends in there if you were a producer of NRT!
