Vaping much better smoking cessation aid than gum, patches, major study finds

Washington -- A major new study provides the strongest evidence yet that vaping can help smokers quit cigarettes, with e-cigarettes proving nearly twice as effective as nicotine gums and patches.

The British research, published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine, could influence what doctors tell their patients and shape the debate in the U.S., where the Food and Drug Administration has come under pressure to more tightly regulate the burgeoning industry amid a surge in teenage vaping.

"We know that patients are asking about e-cigarettes and many doctors haven't been sure what to say," said Dr. Nancy Rigotti, a tobacco treatment specialist at Harvard Medical School who was not involved in the study. "I think they now have more evidence to endorse e-cigarettes."
The study does also say:
1. Vaping products have not been approved by the US as an aid to quitting
2. While many agree vaping is less harmful (far less) there is no long-term research about vaping or the chemicals in the vapor.

If you are smoking, now is the time to quit. There is plenty of other companies willing to take your hard earned cig money, just the same (and at often the same cost) as cigs.

Keep hearing some say the ecigs need to be banned due to teenagers smoking. We had the discussion last year at a school board meeting and most people felt they need to be sold with a prescription from a doctor due to the epidemic of kids thinking they are awesome. Sigh.

JUUL should offer 0 nicotine options if they truly want to market themselves as an alternative to help people quit.

Yes I do. Lots of the kids use that. Supposedly some use part of the regular stuff with a strong smell like cotton candy or something and mix the weed in so its not noticeable. Have no idea if it works.
