E-cigarettes may help smokers quit

Posted: Updated:

There is new evidence that e-cigarettes may help some people quit smoking. Those are the battery-operated cigarettes that look real, but use a liquid vapor solution to deliver nicotine, rather than tobacco.

Researchers in Italy tracked 300 smokers using e-cigarettes. They followed their progress for a year. It turns out only 8% successfully used the e-cigarettes to kick the habit.

Other studies have shown the quit rate among other nicotine replacement methods, like the patch or the gum is about 25%. @
