Menthol cigs are banned, you can’t get them anywhere, you have the urge to feel this menthol taste...and now what? According to the UKVIA, the menthol cigarette ban that came into force on 20th of May is predicted to lead to a spike in adult smokers switching over to significantly less-harmful vaping equivalents, presenting a major public health opportunity across Britain. On their website, the UKVIA states, that menthol cigarettes made smoking much more available for those who dislike the taste of standard tobacco cigarettes and meant that many more people took up smoking. The response from menthol smokers is clearly telling that the ban will lead to significant numbers quitting smoking with most switching over to vaping to do so. If this is the case this could have a major positive impact on the wellbeing of the nation. So what does it mean for the future of traditional cigarettes? Cigarettes are now available in packs of 20, whilst menthol and “lipstick-style” cigarettes got banned, as they are deemed to make cigarettes more glamorous to younger adults. Overall, yes, cigarettes are still available in shops, however, you won’t be able to smoke menthols any longer. The UKVIA shows that research undertaken amongst 1,000 UK menthol smokers reveals that 39% will quit smoking, with nearly a fifth (18%) indicating they will switch to vaping to do so. Other methods of quitting were cited as cold turkey (10%) and nicotine gums or patches (5%). Menthol bans were found to reduce sales and increase smoking cessation with only partial substitution for non-menthol cigarettes. The menthol ban is part of the EU Tobacco Products Directive 2014 and will remain in force after the end of the transition period for leaving the EU comes to an end on 31 December 2020. It is the latest step in the government’s tobacco control strategy designed to reduce youth uptake of smoking and encourage quitting, as it seeks to achieve a “Smokefree England,” by 2030.
