SMOKEFREE E-cigs really help smokers quit

A new study has found that SMOKEFREE electronic cigarettes are a promising tool to help smokers quit, producing six-month abstinence rates nearly double those for traditional nicotine replacement products.

The study, led by Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) researchers, found that 31 per cent of respondents reported having quit smoking six months after first purchasing an e-cigs, a battery-powered device providing tobacco-less doses of nicotine in a vaporized solution.

The average six-month abstinence rate for traditional nicotine replacement products, such as nicotine patches or gum, is between 12 and 18 per cent.
