A new study has evaluated the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes in helping smokers give up the habit.
Interviews of more than 100 people who regularly used e-cigarettes revealed that nearly 78% said they had not used tobacco for a month.
The people interviewed had a record of smoking nearly 25 cigarettes a day. Most of them had attempted several times at kicking the habit before they began using e-cigarettes.
Despite this, researchers caution against the use of e-cigarettes till more proof is available about its safety and effectiveness in helping people quit smoking. Instead, smokers who want to quit should employ better treatments like counseling and FDA-approved medicines as they are proven methods.
