"The second time I quit, my thought process was completely different and I had the help of a great book, The Easy Way To Stop Smoking by Allen Carr".

Healthcare professionals working in the region will be encouraged to support smokers who choose to quit by vaping. E-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, which produces harmful carcinogenic chemicals including tar and carbon monoxide when burned.

After significant tobacco control efforts were implemented in the 1990s there was a substantial reduction in youth smoking, but the increasing popularity of e-cigarettes has the potential to slow or reverse that trend.

Studies show usage rates are highest among adolescents and young adults who are then four-times more likely to start smoking traditional cigarettes than those who don't vape.

The worldwide research organization Kantar conducted qualitative and quantitative interviews with 17,421 smokers, ex-smokers and non-smokers in Brazil, France, Greece, India, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Malawi, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, United Kingdom and United States.

Smoking is the leading cause of early death in Yorkshire.

Last July, a study published in the British Medical Journal found that e-cigarette users were indeed more likely than non-users to attempt to quit smoking-and be more successful at doing so.

"While we continue to encourage innovation of potentially less harmful forms of nicotine delivery for now addicted adult smokers, we can all agree no child should be using any nicotine-containing product", he said.

It is estimated that the introduction of plain packaging in Australia in 2011 accelerated the decline of smoking prevalence and led to approximately 100, 000 less smokers in the 36 months following. Smoking is responsible for 16 different types of cancer, including 86% of lung cancers, 37% of bladder cancers and 23% of liver cancers.

On average, smoking from adolescence and young adulthood takes off 10 years off a person's life. It is celebrated in communities across the world trying to educate more people every year.

Marie Tidball, the city council's board member for young people, schools and public health, said: "We know smoking is a killer and has serious long-term effects on health".

Lagan Valley MLA Robbie Butler has backed Cancer Focus Northern Ireland's call to local smokers to stub out their cigarettes and become "Proud Quitters". That's the kind that can make it hard to understand speech. However, the Dartmouth researchers point out that a future in which e-cigarettes do help people quit isn't impossible-as long as they're kept out of the hands of young people.
