Volunteers are sought for a study about how e-cigarettes can help stop people relapsing after giving up smoking.
Researchers at the University of East Anglia are calling for people who have previously used e-cigarettes to give up smoking.
They want to learn about the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for this purpose.
The study - funded by Cancer Research UK - requires members of the public who have quit with the help of e-cigarettes, or have gone back to smoking.
Statistics suggest 90pc of attempts to stop smoking end in relapse.
