New Study Shows Electronic Cigarettes May Help Unmotivated Smokers Cut Down or Quit, Says Square

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2011

Square has long believed that their disposable electronic cigarettes can?and do?help people cut down or even stop smoking cigarettes. That idea was recently supported in an Italian study posted on the BMC Public Health website, according to a new article by the American Counsel of Science and Health (ACSH).

The ACSH article states that electronic cigarettes stood up favorably in this first clinical trial. Results indicate that the electronic devices may not only be more effective than traditional nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) at helping people who want to quit smoking; e-cigarettes may also help cigarette smokers reduce their smoking?even those who express no interest in kicking the habit.

The small clinical trial was conducted on 40 healthy adults, who smoked regularly and had no expressed intention of quitting. Intervention was limited to providing each smoker in the study group electronic cigarettes and conducting a baseline assessment and four follow-up clinic visits. The smokers were simply told to use the e-cigarettes as they pleased?but were not instructed to quit smoking regular cigarettes.

Over the next six months, 22.5 percent of the participants reported that they had completely quit smoking. Another 32.5 percent reported that they had cut down their cigarette consumption by at least half. In sum, over half of the smokers were able to quit or significantly cut down their cigarette use. This outcome is especially impressive, according to the article, considering that the six-month quit rate for approved cessation aids is well below 20 percent?and those results are derived from smokers who want to quit and are followed closely in a clinical setting.

?This trial simulated a real-life experience, where no motivation or support was offered to subjects to quit smoking,? said ACSH advisor Dr. Mike Siegel, professor at Boston University’s School of Public Health. ?This could well be groundbreaking.? Siegel indicated that he is excited to see the results of more extensive clinical trials, particularly involving subjects who are motivated to quit, stating, ?I am confident that the success rate will be significantly higher.?

Moving from regular cigarettes to e-cigs can be a good health move. Jean-Fran

Satisfying Smoke Reveal’s a New Study on Electronic Cigarettes

Piedmont, SC (Vocus) September 14, 2010

According to Health Life a new South Africa study shows 45 percent of South African smokers who used electronic cigarettes were able to quit traditional tobacco smoking within two months.The e-cigarette is an electronic device that delivers nicotine through water vapor without the harmful tar, carcinogens, smoke, or odor found in traditional cigarettes.

In the first local medical study on the efficiency of electronic cigarettes to help smokers kick the habit, a team of doctors supplied 349 patients with electronic cigarettes over a period of eight weeks. All participating doctors agreed that e-cigarettes are a more significantly healthy alternative to conventional smoking.

The study?s outcome revealed that:

6% of smokers quit within two weeks increasing to 45% within eight weeks.
52% of all patients reported both increased levels of energy and visible improvement in their physical appearance.
When asked what factors about smoking tobacco cigarettes were the hardest to give up, 49% of patients said nicotine cravings and 24% reported the habit itself was the most difficult to break. Twenty-seven percent of all participating smokers said that a combination of all factors (the habit, nicotine, the taste and feeling of smoking) made it hard to quit.
When asked if an e-cigarette could act as an agent to overcome all the physical and psychological challenges to quit tobacco smoking, all doctors said ?Yes?.
Dr Clifford Hulley, one of the participating medical professionals in the survey, reported that “an e-cigarette is the most effective treatment method on the market for quitting tobacco smoking”.
