SWITZERLAND: A new smoking cessation program with e-cigarettes is emerging.

In Switzerland, the e-cigarette begins to impose itself in the process of stopping smoking. New proof is with a new program incorporating the recently available vaping at the Suchthilfe Ost help center in Olten.


RECOGNIZING THE E-CIGARETTE AS A RISK REDUCTION DEVICE!


Smokers who are ready to quit smoking will be able to do so through the electronic cigarette. The help center Suchthilfe Ost à Olten proposes on Wednesday a new program integrating vaping. Nearly two-thirds of smokers (61%) want to quit. Completely giving up nicotine is, for some, too big a step, says the association soleuroise.

She proposes a pilot project during 18 months. Smokers who participate will be followed by professionals. The latter received specific training on vaping. Switching to the electronic cigarette can be a real alternative. The arrival on the market of replacement products, especially e-cigarettes, opens up new possibilities.

Vape is a way to consume nicotine without most of the toxic products found in combustion cigarettes. The association of German professionals of addiction asks the Confederation and the cantons to recognize the e-cigarette as a means of reducing risks.

This initiative, supported by Helvetic Vape, the Swiss Association of Personal Vaporizer Users, complies with the 2017-2024 National Addiction Strategy.
