    E-Cigarette Information Sheet (AASCP March 2014)

    The Australian Association of Smoking Cessation Professionals (AASCP) has prepared the following statement on electronic cigarettes to help individual smokers and health professionals make informed, evidence-based decisions about the use of these products.
    http://aascp.org.au/index.php/downlo.../view/571/176/

    Part of the statement:
    Advice to smokers
    Conventional forms of nicotine replacement therapy (nicotine patch, lozenge, gum, mouth spray and inhalator) and the prescription drugs varenicline and bupropion have been evaluated by Australian authorities for quality, safety and performance and are the recommended first line medications for smokers wishing to quit. (33, 34) However, for those who have failed to quit with current approved therapies, e-cigarettes may offer an alternative.
    E-cigarettes may also reduce harm from smoking by helping those who are not ready to quit to cut down their cigarette intake, although the health benefits of this are not proven. (35) Some smokers who cut down while using e-cigarettes will go on to quit completely as a result. Complete tobacco cessation is always the preferred goal for smokers.
    However, there are still many unanswered questions about the effectiveness and safety of e-cigarettes and their overall impact on public health and the use of e-cigarettes remains controversial. The final decision to use e-cigarettes belongs to the individual smoker, who should weigh up the risk and benefits and make a decision for their circumstances.

    I couldn't agree with you more. It should be our decision not some Gumbit idiot working in a cloth covered box making the decisions for us.

    1 in 3 Aussies will be diagnosed with Cancer. Not Quite Fascist.... more extremely misguided. I believe in the CC's, they do a lot of good..... just not their head in the sand approach to PV's.

    Never heard of AASCP, but the CC has a better chance of listening to a group of professionals than us.

    All in all, its just a-nother brick in the wall
