E-cigs linked to smoking cessation

January 25, 2016

Greater e-cigarette consumption and a higher readiness to quit at baseline were associated with a 50 percent reduction in the number of cigarettes smoked per day during the third week of a recent study on the effect of e-cigarettes on smoking abstinence.

Led by Donna Shelley of the New York University School of Medicine, the study comprised a randomized controlled trial and reduction. For three weeks, researchers provided e-cigarettes to young adults aged 21-35 who lived in New York City and smoked at least 10 cigarettes per day.

The study was published Nicotine and Tobacco Research.
