Vape Shop Support
The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities state that e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than smoking. Nicotine itself is not particularly harmful, but it’s the burning of tobacco and the smoke that creates tar and the poison, Carbon Monoxide.
For smokers ready and motivated to make a quit attempt, you can register and plan your quit with one of the commissioned vape shops listed at the bottom of this page. Once you have set a quit date, you will receive a free vape starter kit, plug and supplies to help prepare for your smoke free journey. For those clients who are pregnant, your quit programme will be fully funded for the entire 12-week programme.
- you must be ready and motivated to complete programme
- you are required to attend weekly appointments at the Vape Shop
- you will continue to receive support, on the basis that you remain smoke free
- you may be asked to provide an on-site Carbon Monoxide test as part of the programme
We currently have two commissioned vape shops in Southend, both of which are trained to deliver the swap smoking programme. The shop locations are as follows:
73 Hamlet Court Road
1101 London Road
