And one in seven of those surveyed suffers from shortness of breath.

But only 46 percent plan to quit smoking soon – even though 62 percent have health concerns.

Many people are turning to e-cigarettes, even as the government is reportedly considering banning disposable vapes.

Experts fear that e-cigarettes will make users addicted to nicotine – especially children.

According to a survey by Vitality Health Insurance, only a quarter of vapers believe it is risk-free.

Katie Tryon from the company said: “It is important to know that e-cigarettes are not risk-free.

“Not only is it highly addictive, but it also causes side effects.”
