According to the latest report by the National Bureau of Statistics, 56.7% of Britannia smokers decided to give up smoking in 2015, the highest percentage of those who quit smoking since the 1974 record.
Later, British online retailers did further research to determine how many cities had publicly accepted electronic smoke.
After collating data on the number of electronic smoke stores within the 2-mile radius of each city, the Scottish capital of Edinburgh was found to be the largest, with a total of 17 vape stores. London and Birmingham are equal in number, with 10 families. In fact, of the 68 cities counted, only 13 have no vape shops.
British smokers are reported to be switching from cigarettes to electronic substitutes faster than in other parts of Europe, with one person switching from traditional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes every four minutes. The level of supply and demand in big cities like Edinburgh means that many people of all ages, races and socioeconomic conditions can be taken care of.
