Vaping: Not the Tool for Quitters

Vaping is not a reliable path to giving up smoking, according to new research from Georgia State University—adding to a growing body of conflicting research into e-cigarettes’ potential as quit-smoking tools.

The researchers found no evidence that electronic nicotine delivery systems helped adult smokers quit at rates higher than smokers not using the products. One reason for this may be that smokers may not get enough nicotine from e-cigarettes to give up traditional cigarettes.

The findings point to a need for additional research, the authors emphasized, on the impact, design, marketing and regulation of e-cigarettes.
