Studies carried out by “Santé publique France” have shown that the rate of people who smoke cigarettes has dropped in France in recent years. This could be partly explained by the increase in the number of people who vape. Indeed, many are these French people who have abandoned tobacco for the vape. The main reason for this is that they want to fight against smoking. The electronic cigarette has therefore become the smoking cessation tool par excellence in France.
