How Your Office Workers Could Benefit From Change In E-Cig Laws

Most people know how stressful their days can become and some might smoke to deal with their workload. While it’s not the best habit to pick up – and one that can be difficult to drop – you might be looking to change that and adopting a healthier lifestyle instead. Whether you work in offices in Liverpool or Manchester, it could become easier to cut down on smoking in the foreseeable future.

The Science and Technology Committee has published a report calling for e-cigarettes to be allowed in public places, which includes trains, buses and offices. It finds that sending e-cig owners out to smoking shelters can make it more difficult to quit.

If you own an e-cig, chances are that it might not help you if you’re standing around other smokers. In fact, you’re probably not going to want to leave the building when it’s raining only to be drenched when you’re using it.

Liberal Democrat MP Norman Lamb, who is the chairman of the Science and Technology Committee, commented: “E-cigarettes are less harmful than conventional cigarettes, but current policy and regulations do not sufficiently reflect this and businesses, transport providers and public places should stop viewing conventional and e-cigarettes as one and the same. There is no public health rationale for doing so.”

If you’re an ex-smoker, then it’s news that could benefit your productivity if you’re allowed to vape occasionally in the office. In fact, it might even help you save money on buying Nicotine patches and gum.
