Prevent Disease, Save Lives: An introduction to Oral Nicotine Delivery Systemsm (ONDS)
Tobacco harm reduction is a policy or strategy for tobacco users who cannot or will not stop, which explicitly includes the continued use of tobacco or of harm reduction interventions could include using potentially reduced- exposure products (PREPs), reducing consumption, switching to long-term nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), switching to smokeless tobacco products, and using replacement products for temporary abstinence.
The premise behind these strategies is that dependence on nicotine is the critical factor underpinning most tobacco use. However, it is not the nicotine that causes most of the harm but rather some of the other 4000 constituents of cigarette smoke, of which 60 are known carcinogens. Drawing an analogy with illicit drug use, the cigarette is the equivalent of the ‘dirty syringe’. Consideration therefore needs to be given to separating the drug from the delivery system. The switching some or all cigarette use to other, less harmful nicotine delivery systems.
