Exploring the opinions and potential impact of unflavoured e-liquid on smoking cessation among smokers and smoking relapse among e-cigarette users

Experiment details

This study will involve:

  • a short survey
  • using an unflavoured e-liquid in an e-cigarette (provided by us)
  • an online video interview

During the interview, you will be asked questions about the unflavoured e-liquid and how using the e-liquid might impact your behaviour. The experiment will take roughly 5 hours in total, but you will be able to go about your daily routine for 4 hours during this time while you are asked to use the e-cigarette and e-liquid provided. All study materials will be posted to you, so the study will be completed in your own home. All contact with the research team will be via telephone, email or video call.

You will be provided with an e-cigarette and bottle of e-liquid (which you are welcome to keep after completion of the experiment, free of charge), and will be compensated with a £20 Love2Shop voucher for your time.
