It was a good module.
It will be interesting to see the evolving research on e-cigs (+ vaping) and also further research on morbidity/mortality associated with chronic occasional smoking. This is likely to be a bigger issue if people continue to vape but also use occasional cigarettes.

I will now do an audit on smoking cessation using e-cigs.
