Abstract

Background NICE requested a further evidence review to accompany a series of reviews to support the development of tobacco harm reduction (THR) guidance. This rapid review investigated the long term use of non-tobacco nicotine containing products (NCPs) in individuals who have attempted to quit smoking abruptly rather than via THR approaches. Long term use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) has previously been identified as a potential issue in treating nicotine addiction in smokers (Hughes, 1998; RCP, 2000). For the purposes of this review ‘non-tobacco nicotine containing products’ were defined as NRT and ‘electronic nicotine delivery systems’ (sometimes known as ‘electronic cigarettes’ or ‘e-cigarettes’) and topical gels. NRT is available in the following formulations: chewing gum, transdermal patches, inhalers, microtabs, mouth/nasal sprays and lozenges. Evidence for individuals who used NCPs long term following THR approaches (cut down to quit or long term harm reduction) would have been identified in the two previous THR effectiveness reviews. It was agreed that a full systematic review was not required but that the SURE team would examine studies that were identified through searching for the four THR reviews for any data on long term NCP use following an attempt of abrupt cessation; as well as employing snowballing techniques to identify other relevant studies concerned with the long term use of NCPs that were not identified in the production of the THR reviews. Aim of the review To identify and summarise evidence relating to the long term use of NCPs at or longer than 12 months among abrupt quitters. Research questions Information was collected on the following: 1. Length of time of using NCP 2. Pattern of NCP use i.e. type of NCP, amount, frequency, reason for use 3. Demographics of long term users e.g. gender, ethnicity, social determinants 4. Predictors of long term
