Dac Sprengel, Chairman of the e-cigarette trade association:
“The success of the e-cigarette is no accident. The product is the best alternative to tobacco cigarettes for adult smokers. The effectiveness of nicotine replacement products is clearly limited and their importance will continue to decline in the coming years. "
“Already a tenth of all smokers in Germany have switched to the e-cigarette. Over the next six years, half of all tobacco smokers will switch to the much less harmful alternative. This is extremely important for public health. "
