Flavoured vaping is under threat in Ireland

Politicians are trying to ban flavoured vapes. Here’s what they need to know:

Irish vapers say "keep flavours to quit smoking"

 Flavoured vapes help 94% of ex-smokers to quit, according to Red C survey.

99% of vapers in Ireland are ex or current smokers

Vaping is not a gateway to cigarette smoking for teenagers and young adults, according to University College London research of 37,000 young people.

Don't ban your e-liquid flavours

Some people are calling for all e-liquid flavours other than tobacco to be banned. If this happens, many vapers may go back to cigarettes and many smokers won’t bother switching.

Banning flavours will keep people smoking.

Solution? Vaping: Ireland’s Most Popular Quit Tool

Ireland’s approach to tobacco control is broken.

While other nations witness tangible decreases in their smoking rate, the number of Irish people who smoke has started to increase again.

There is no question that the ‘Tobacco Free Ireland’ goal will be missed: the only question is by how much. To rectify this pressing problem Irish politicians, policymakers and NGOs need to develop a new approach.

In order to restart a real conversation about what needs to be done, Respect Vapers – which represents over 200,000 Irish vapers who use e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking – has drawn upA Real Roadmap to a Tobacco Free Ireland.’

By looking to international examples of progressive health policymaking, by providing smokers with accurate information and effective support and by ensuring that vaping products remain available (and remain more affordable than smoking), we can make a ‘Tobacco Free Ireland’ a reality.

Read the full roadmap to see how we get there.
