A survey result showed that those smokers who use e-cigarettes as a way to quit smoking stood a better whopping 60% chance than those who resort to NRT products, gum and willpower alone.
The study which is funded by Cancer Research UK and conducted bu researchers from University College London (UCL), showed that e-cigarettes helped reduce smoking rates but NHS stop-smoking services remained the most effective aid to quitting.
Based on records, e-cigarette users have tripled in number and now stands at 2.1 million. It was not long ago that there had been a conference about banning e-cigarettes in public places because some say that it ‘renormalise’ smoking. However, UCL researchers found no evidence leading that e-cigarettes being addictive, dangerous and ‘renormalising’ smoking behavior.
The study surveyed 5,863 smokers who had tried to quit smoking without NHS support. One out five successfully quit after the survey.
