Study Shows 52% of Vapers quit smoking.
NIHS SURVEY MORE THAN HALF OF VAPERS QUIT SMOKING
The National Institutes of Health has found that 52% of daily vapers have quit smoking. That number is three times the quitting rate of smokers that are not vapers, reports Marcus Fordham.
The data was compiled from the National Health Interview Survey. Here are the survey highlights:
Over half of daily e-cig users in the sample quit smoking in the last 5 years.
Daily e-cig users were 3 times more likely to be quit than never e-cig users.
Some day e-cig users were least likely to be quit.
Some smokers may have quit or are preventing relapse with frequent e-cig use.
Another of the conclusions of this survey analysis was that infrequent vapers have lower smoking cessation rates than daily vapers. The study authors ask a very pertinent question. They said that they need to understand the individual characteristics and, this is important, to understand the products being used.
That is huge progress.
