    Why the scared people are scared

    This is good news.

    With NRT sales falling and ecig sales overtaking them in France, maybe BP will decide not to throw good money after bad,
    and chop off their funding for the ANTZ.

    When Government see their dwindling tobacco excises, they might also jettison them as surplus to needs.



    Today, via this article in French magazine Challenge, we see exactly why they're so scared.

    The market for nicotine replacement lost 7% in 2013. The rise of the electronic cigarette, increasingly used as a method to quit smoking, is the cause.

    Since the rapid expansion of electronic cigarettes, sales of patches, gums and lozenges are plummeting in France as in other European countries. "This decline has been evident since the beginning of September," says Sophie Ragot, Marketing Manager OTC and dermatology for GlaxoSmithklineBeecham, the company that markets Niquitin products.

    According to the latest figures, the market for nicotine replacement therapy in France has fallen by 6.6% in 2013 to under 100 million euros of turnover (99.2 million to be exact) for the first time since 2010. "If we look at only the last quarter, the figures are even worse. Declining by 17% and even 35% for patches," explains Sophie Ragot.

    You will see the UK stats here. Page 7 shows that ecigs have outnumbered NRT in quit attempts between 2012 and 2013.

    Great article, thanks for that OD.

    It is great that people forming to together and informing each other world wide can have such an influence and solve such problems.

    All we need is ourselves and the natural generousity of being truly human. That's all it takes.

    It makes me feel happy and liberated.

    i wonder what this trend has done for quit statistics. probably not a lot, because the bodies that record quit stats don't want to recognised vaping, so probably aren't recording vapers as quit smokers. it certainly doesn't seem to fit their agendas to accurately record the number of people who now vape instead of smoke, so the true figures would probably not be published, even if they did record them.

    Vaping does not resemble poisonous tobacco smoking, it is a safe replacement.

    Replace, not resemble.

    Safe, not toxic.

    I'd like to see comparisons with smoking rates and tobacco sales as well.
    Not that it will make much difference to the powers that be, anyway.

    The results for THR are already well established, but ignored.
