Dear ///, (Lib Dem)As you might remember, I am a smoker that now doesn't smoke. My last cigarette was in 2011. I was a smoker that, as more and more smoking restrictions were put into place, was determined never to give up smoking. Yet, I have. I vape - that is, I use electronic devices. I see electronic cigarettes as being the most amazing technology for either helping smokers to quit, or as a replacement to smoking. They are getting very bad acceptance by Tobacco Control, and the new EU regulations will NOT make electronic cigarettes better, but simply obliterate this most helpful technology.

Thank you very much for your recent email with regard to the benefits of electronic cigarettes.
This is most interesting and very helpful; I am firmly in favour of them because of the big difference that they can make.
With best wishes
