“e-cigarettes may hold promise as a smoking cessation method,” according to researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health. Although they are not marketed as a smoking cessation device, many e-cig users are able to quit smoking cigarettes.
The study, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found that two-thirds (66.8%) of the 222 smokers surveyed smoked less after using e-cigarettes for six months, nearly half (48.8%) quit smoking cigarettes for a period of time, and almost a third (31%) quit smoking completely.
Research published by the National Institutes of Health found similar results. Italian researchers from the University of Catania found that electronic cigarette smokers were able to quit smoking cigarettes and remain abstinent for at least six months.
