In 2015 e-cigarettes helped 49 people a day stop smoking.
Improving success rates up and down the country, researchers from the University College of London looked at 43,000 smokers over a period of nine years. They noted that the more people who utilised vaping technology the more successful they were at quitting smoking.
“Britain too positive in its attitude to e-cigarettes”
Currently, a 40-year-old smoker who permanently quits smoking can gain an additional nine life years compared to someone who continues to smoke. Professor Robert West said:
“England is sometimes singled out as being too positive in its attitude to e-cigarettes. This data suggest that our relatively liberal regulation of e-cigarettes is probably justified.”
With some European countries taking on more stringent regulations and some banning vaping completely, this current study is worrying. Cutting off a viable resource for smokers is counter intuitive.
“E-cigarettes can play a role in helping people to quit”
Alison Cox, the director of prevention at Cancer Research UK said:
“Giving up smoking can be really tough. It is important to remember that getting support from Stop Smoking Services is still the most effective way to quit. E-cigarettes can play a role in helping people to quit and the evidence so far shows e-cigarettes are much safer than tobacco. This study shows the positive impact they’ve had on helping people give up the deadly addiction”
With 2.8 million estimated vapers in Britain alone, using an e-cigarette means you are three times more likely to quit smoking vaping than going cold turkey.
