E-cigarettes dramatically boost smokers’ chances of successfully quitting, according to recent research.
Professor Robert West, Ph.D., of University College London, UK, said, “E-cigarettes could substantially improve public health because of their widespread appeal and the huge health gains associated with stopping smoking.”
The deaths and disease caused by cigarette smoking comes mainly from breathing in toxins other than nicotine in the smoke. Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, provide a heated vapor containing nicotine without tobacco combustion. They seem to reduce cigarette cravings and withdrawal symptoms, while being much safer than ordinary cigarettes.
Research suggests they are better at helping smokers cut down or stop than nicotine replacement therapy, as they more closely mimic the sensory experience of cigarettes.
Writing in the journal Addiction, West reported on his study of 5,863 smokers surveyed between 2009 and 2014.
