Big News! "The more days you use e-cigarettes, the more likely you are to successfully quit" says new study :)

E-Cigarettes Show Best Results For Quitting Smoking

Our friends over at Forbes posted an article today about the results of a new vape study that is extremely more detailed and granular than past studies, which not surprising to anyone at the Northwest Vaper, reports that people who vaped more than once or a few times had much higher success at quitting smoking! This finding really shows how poorly past study data was recorded. No wonder there were so many anti-vape propaganda studies a few years back claiming vaping doesn't help people quit, since the people participating in those studies that claimed vaping did not help with their failed attempt only vaped once or a few times.

Have you ever heard a vape advocate claim that e-cigarettes could cure tobacco addiction after a few puffs? That sounds just as ridiculous now as when these studies were recorded years back.  The good news is that these studies are finally catching on to common sense, in our humble opinion.  The great news is that thousands of people world wide have successfully quit smoking by vaping - they might of had to hit the vape more then a few times - but quit smoking by using vaping nonetheless!  Below you will find the meat of this article sandwhich for your review, I definitely encourage you to go check out the original article on Forbes and the actual study from Oxford Academic Journals here. Staying educated and passing what we learn on is one of the most important jobs us vape advocates can do!

"The data for this study came from the 2014-2015 survey and included 23,633 smokers, just under half of whom (10,973) had attempted at least once to quit smoking. Most of those who tried to quit didn’t succeed, a total of 8,419 people. But 1,596 people had remained successful for at least 3 to 12 months, 623 of them had quit one to three months before the survey, and 335 had just quit within the past month. By analyzing survey responses in these individual groups about who had used e-cigarettes and how often, the researchers were able to analyze the link between e-cigarettes and quitting more closely.
They found that smokers who used an e-cigarette only once or a few times were less likely to successfully quit, a possible reason for some past studies’ findings that e-cigarettes didn’t help if those studies lumped together people who had ever tried an e-cigarette and those who used them more frequently. But for those who used e-cigarettes more often, especially the longer they used them, the success rate went up. Each additional day of e-cigarette used increased the odds of successfully quitting by about 5%, the researchers found. Using e-cigarettes for at least five days in a month increased the odds of quitting by 59%, and using them at least 20 days more than doubled the odds."
"A study in 2010 using the same data source might have found e-cigarettes less helpful at helping people quit because e-cigarettes were not as sophisticated as they are today, especially in delivering bigger doses of nicotine." 
 - Just like high end electronics such as computers and cell phones, every few months a better more upgraded vape device comes out, so if someone you know tried to quit smoking using an e-cigarette 4 years ago and failed, it may be time to drag them to your local vape shop and give it another go!  Once they have a sleek new vape in hand all they need is some amazing E-Juice!
