Ecigs prescribed on the NHS?

So it looks as if Electronic Cigarettes may soon be prescribed on the NHS. This means that GPs will be able to help smokers move to a much healthier alternative to tobacco smoking by giving them E-Cigarettes. It looks as if so far kits will cost the NHS £20 each with every smoker costing £10 per week in cartridges. Yet despite this cost large savings will be expected in health care due to many more smokers stopping tobacco smoking. I imagine that they won't be furnishing them with top-of-the-line devices but it will make a good introduction to many new vapers who will come to see that it is not only a healthier alternative, but a better way of living. Many have hailed the possible move as 'brilliant' and hope that it goes through without too much opposition.
