Are you a new e-cigarette user, thinking of trying one or a business supplying new users? If so, Lynne Dawkins needs you. A survey is being conducted by researchers in the School of Psychology at the University of East London (UEL) in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London and the University of Geneva into the patterns of electronic cigarette use in new users over 12 months.
Project Description (from UEL):
Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are devices that produce an inhaled vapour from liquids containing proplyene glycol, glycerin, flavors and nicotine.
The purpose of the survey is to gain information from new users in order to understand why people use them, how they are used over a period of time, and what effects, if any, they have on tobacco smoking and health. Your involvement would help us to answer these valuable questions.
Please answer ONLY if this is your FIRST e-cigarette purchase and you have purchased it for your own personal use. We would like to ask you about your initial purchase of an e-cigarette as well as your patterns of use and experience over the next year. We would therefore like to get responses from you today and at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months from now. The survey will only take 10-15 minutes to complete on each occasion.
We will ask you to provide an e-mail address and mobile telephone number so that we can send you a reminder in 1, 3, 6 and 12 months to return to the website to complete the next part of the survey.
if you are a new user please consider taking part in this valuable research. If you own a business and can assist with pointing new users to the survey the research team would be very grateful.
