Strong Evidence That E-Cigarettes Can Be Effective For Smoking Cessation.


Recent data from the UK smoking tool kit shows that e-cigarettes are having a very positive impact in reducing the number of people smoking. 

The most recent numbers show that quit attempts have risen dramatically from 14% in 2011 to 23% in 2016. Prior to that the quit rate had been static. 

One very strong contender for this increase in quit attempts are e-cigarettes.  Dr Siegel, a prominent anti-tobacco campaigner writes about this, stating  “Starting in 2011 and coinciding precisely with the increased quit rate was a dramatic shift away from the use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in quit attempts and towards the use of electronic cigarettes.” 

He continues, “Based on this research, which includes a randomized trial of e-cigarettes compared to the nicotine patch, it seems clear that electronic cigarettes are at least as effective as nicotine replacement therapy and probably more so.

“One thing is now very clear. There is no basis for anti-vaping advocates to continue to claim that there is no evidence that e-cigarettes can be effective for smoking cessation. There is now strong evidence.” 

Dr Siegal concludes his article by writing, “It is certainly true that e-cigarettes do not work for everyone and that many vapers do not quit smoking entirely. But the very same is true with the use of NRT. In fact, the overwhelming majority of NRT users will return to full-time smoking. However, this doesnt mean that NRT does not aid in the smoking cessation process. The same is true for e-cigarettes.”
