A newly-published study has revealed that e-cigarettes are three times for effective than nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT) at helping smokers quit.
The study is the third published this year to demonstrate the effectiveness of e-cigarettes over traditional smoking-cessation aids.
The cross-sectional survey of almost 20,000 quit attempts revealed that vapers were 95 percent more likely to successfully quit smoking than those who went cold-turkey. Traditional nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT) such as patches and gums had a quit rate of just 34 percent.
NRT was only successful when prescribed, reinforcing the importance of stop-smoking support for this quit method.
Lead author Dr Sarah Jackson said:

‘”It also raises concerns about the apparent lack of effectiveness of NRT bought from a shop.”
