Thank you for your interest in our study. We are investigating whether electronic cigarettes are as effective in helping smokers to quit as nicotine replacement treatment (e.g. nicotine patches, gum, mouthspray etc.). This is a ground breaking study, one of the first of its kind, and your participation could provide vital information about e-cigarettes and how we help people to quit smoking in the future.

The study is run by the Health and Lifestyle Research Unit at Queen Mary University of London, a world leader in this field, with Quit 51 Stop Smoking Service in East Sussex being chosen as one of three study sites across the country.

If you choose to take part you will receive:

  • 6 weeks of specialist stop-smoking support from Quit 51’s Stop Smoking Practitioners
  • Either an e-cigarette starter pack OR your choice of nicotine replacement treatment (decided at random by a computer)

Study sessions will take place once a week across various locations in East Sussex, but appointments can be flexible to suit you. Please get in touch for more information on where sessions are able to take place.

Further details can be found on this information sheet.
