Another Study Adds To The Evidence That Vaping Helps Smokers Quit

Although the fierce debate surrounding whether the use of e-cigarettes is an effective tool to help smokers quit continues to rage on, both in Australia and around the world, yet another study has added to the overwhelming evidence that electronic cigarettes are indeed effective in helping smokers quit.

Despite this and other studies, hardcore naysayers continue to talk down vaping. In contrast, those who are for vaping completely believe in its use as a smoking cessation tool that provides smokers with an effective means by which to quit smoking once and for all.

One of the Largest Studies to Date

In one of the largest vaping studies carried out to date, researchers in America have trawled through data that had already been collected about thousands of adults across the United States, especially those who were classed as “cigarette smokers” by this data.

Those classed as such were people who had smoked more than a hundred cigarettes in their lifetime and were using cigarettes on most days at the time that they were first surveyed. They were also asked whether they were familiar with e-cigarettes or had used them in the past. Then, two years later, these people were followed up with to see how they’d got on over time with e-cigarettes. Overall, more than 8,000 smokers were surveyed.

In the original survey, less than four per cent of smokers said that they’d used an e-cigarette daily. Typically, these people were much younger, had a higher than average educational background, and smoked fewer cigarettes than the typical person surveyed. This meant that they were unlikely to be ‘addicted’ to smoking in the first place. Two years later when the researchers followed up, they found that this group was more likely to have stayed away from cigarettes than other smokers.

Also, 11 per cent of people surveyed initially who both smoked and vaped was found to have stopped by the time the follow-up survey was carried out. In contrast, only six per cent of ‘typical smokers’ who had not used e-cigarettes had stopped.

What Do These Results Mean?

The study's findings add to existing research which suggests that e-cigarettes and vaping actually aid smoking cessation, as the data shows that e-cigarette users were nearly twice as likely to have stopped smoking than those who had not used e-cigarettes.

Other evidence from countless studies, including studies carried out by official bodies such as Public Health England and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, has led to results along similar lines. Even the World Health Organisation (WHO) has weighed in, with an official representative, Dr Ranti Fayokun, admitting that e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes. Fayokun's acknowledgment came in response to a question from a Filipino congressman during a congressional hearing on vaping regulation in the Philippines in December 2019.

Do Cigarettes Really Help People Stop Smoking?

In short, they do. E-cigarettes have successfully helped thousands upon thousands of people worldwide quit smoking. There’s no shortage of people online explaining how it’s helped them quit—this speaks for itself.

A major component of the cigarette is an ingredient called nicotine, a substance that our bodies are genetically wired to be tolerant of. Once nicotine enters the human body, it’s very easy to get hooked on it and this is how people become addicted to smoking. This is despite the widespread knowledge that smoking is incredibly expensive, dirty, and dangerous.

One way that people often try to quit (and fail!) is with the use of nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) and products, the classic example being the unsightly nicotine patch. These deliver nicotine to the bloodstream in a controlled fashion that is believed to be safer than smoking. Although these work for some people, there is evidence to suggest that they are not as effective as e-cigarettes in helping people quit smoking. In fact, a study carried out in the United Kingdom found e-cigarettes to be nearly twice as effective as nicotine patches and gum.

The reason that e-cigarettes are believed to be more effective is because they mimic the look, feel, and sensation of smoking, making it relatively easy for smokers to switch. They’re also highly social and they allow users to control the nicotine strength of the liquid they’re vaping. This means that a heavy smoker can opt for a high strength liquid whereas a light smoker can opt for a weaker one. As a result, e-cigarettes provide smokers with a versatile tool to quit smoking.

In contrast, NRTs and nicotine replacement products provide little control over strength. While the e-liquid that's used with e-cigarettes is available in a wide range of nicotine strengths, nicotine gums and patches are only available in a small number of nicotine options.
