A new Cochrane Review has again found that nicotine containing vapes are more effective in helping people quit smoking than through using conventional nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT) products such as sprays, gum or patches. Smoke Free Sweden says that the findings echo the success Sweden has experienced with its promotion of alternative nicotine products.
The WHO global report on trends in prevalence of tobacco use 2002-2030, released today, shows Sweden will have by far the lowest smoking rates in Europe by 2030 – along with the United Kingdom and Iceland, which also have progressive policies on modern nicotine products. Other nations on the continent will have smoking rates which are up to FOUR TIMES higher than that of Sweden.

The FDA today took a major step toward banning open-system vaping hardware sold without e-liquid. Open-system products are refillable, allowing consumers to use them with bottled e-liquid from any manufacturer—including e-liquid that contains no nicotine, or non-nicotine ingredients like CBD.
The FDA issued marketing denial orders (MDOs) for six SMOK-brand vaping devices, and 14 pods and replacement coils used in the prohibited devices. These are the devices:
- SMOK OSUB ONE
- SMOK Nfix
- SMOK POZZ
- SMOK RPM 40
- SMOK SCAR-P3
- SMOK Nord 2

A new analysis of trial data on pregnant smokers, led by researchers at Queen Mary University of London, finds that the regular use of nicotine-replacement products during pregnancy is not associated with adverse pregnancy events or poor pregnancy outcomes.
The PREP 2 study used data collected from over 1,100 pregnant smokers attending 23 hospitals in England and one stop-smoking service in Scotland to compare pregnancy outcomes in women who did or did not use nicotine in the form of e-cigarettes (EC) or nicotine patches regularly during their pregnancy.
