Vaping Best Bet to Quit Cigarettes

Responding to this latest research, Public Health England said: "All stop-smoking services should welcome smokers who want to quit with the help of an e-cigarette".

The researchers analyzed data from three waves of the nationally representative Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study (2013-2016) in their effort to evaluate the association between prior e-cigarette use and use of other non-cigarette tobacco products with later cigarette initiation over a roughly 2-year period.

"This is a well-designed and much-needed study that may have important clinical and policy implications for the use of e-cigarettes as a cessation aid", Scott Weaver, an epidemiologist at Georgia State University's School of Public Health who is not affiliated with the new research, told Gizmodo. "Other strengths of the study include biochemical verification of smoking outcomes - the nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) arm had a choice of products (gum, patch, etc) and could switch between them if they wanted, the e-cig arm had a choice of e-liquids, and it was a pragmatic trial conducted in a real-world setting".

E-cigarette arm abstainers experienced less severe urges to smoke at 1 and 4 weeks post-quit date. That was a reversal of a hands-off approach to e-cigarettes Gottlieb took in 2017 that was followed by a 75 percent rise between 2017 and 2018 in use of e-cigarettes by children and teens. Juul's rapid popularity among teens in the USA -which has sparked fears that it could lead more young people to pick up tobacco smoking and reverse the success we've seen with lowering teen smoking rates - might explain the more reluctant attitude of doctors in the U.S.to enthusiastically embrace e-cigarettes as a cessation aid.

In sharp contrast, 80% in the e-cigarette group were still using theirs. Because e-cigarettes have improved since then, their advantages for smokers who choose them may be greater nowadays.

Yet, sadly, polls show that of the 37.8 million adults in the United States who now smoke, roughly 65 percent think e-cigarettes are just as harmful as smoking traditional cigarettes.

More specifically, the researchers found that 18% of e-cigarette users were able to abstain from smoking for one full year compared to only 9.9% in the nicotine replacement group.

FRIDAY, Feb. 1, 2019 (HealthDay News) - The kind of teenager least interested in smoking appears to be the type most likely to try a cigarette after they experiment with vaping, a new study indicates. After all, not only are e-cigarettes helping people quit, they are 95 percent less harmful than traditional cigarettes. A new study says vaping may be best for quitting cigarettes, but it is still a health risk.

Electronic cigarettes, which have been available in the US since about 2007 and have grown into a $6.6 billion-a-year industry, are battery-powered devices that typically heat a flavored nicotine solution into an inhalable vapor.

"Vaping is a far less harmful alternative for smokers who are unable to quit and has helped millions of smokers quit overseas", ATHRA chairman, Conjoint Associate Professor Colin Mendelsohn, said.

Victorian Racing Minister Martin Pakula said the investigation showed authorities were enforcing rules "without fear or favour". Police indicated that the investigations are ongoing and that they are looking into whether any offences have been committed.

The researchers didn't test e-cigarettes against new drugs such as Pfizer's Chantix, which has shown higher rates of success than older nicotine-based treatments.

While nicotine plays a part, Stokes thinks the influence of vaping is "more complex than just nicotine". Those devices have largely been overtaken in the U.S.by Juul and similar devices that have prefilled nicotine cartridges, or pods.

Another concern Jordt has about e-cigarettes is that many users will simply never stop using them.

Because of the nature of the treatments, it wasn't possible to disguise from people whether they were using e-cigarettes or NRT products.

Armitage, who has smoked for 15 years, said he also tried nicotine patches but found they irritated his skin.
