An ever-increasing number of smokers are reporting that they quit smoking with the help of electronic cigarettes, according to a Smoking Study featured on Fox News. About 1400 smokers from the United States and Europe were surveyed in this study, answering a online questionnaire.
“About three quarters of respondents said they started using e-cigarettes as a complete alternative to smoking and 22 percent said they started using the devices for other reasons — including stopping smoking (7 percent), for health reasons (6 percent) and to get around smoking restrictions (3 percent).” Researchers note that all the respondents noticed an improvement in breathing and overall health since starting to use e-cigarettes over tobacco. “Some 86 percent said they had either not smoked cigarettes for several weeks or months since using the e-cigarette or that the amount they smoked had decreased dramatically.”
The only thing that tobacco cigarettes and electronic cigarettes have in common is the nicotine, which can be synthesized, and as such e-cigarettes can be produced without any tobacco byproducts whatsoever. E-cigarettes indeed help people quit smoking by providing a alternative to tobacco, the most addictive substance known to man, that mimics smoking in every way. Whether a vaper chooses to continue living life vaping nicotine water vapor is a matter of choice, but the fact remains that they are no longer smoking, as there is no combustion taking place and therefore no smoke is inhaled.
Tobacco smoke contains many addictive substances besides nicotine. However it’s not the nicotine itself that is deadly, but rather the tar and poisons found in tobacco smoke. It has now been over 10 years since e-cigarettes first appeared for sale, but any health hazards, if any, are yet to be discovered. One of the most transparent electronic cigarette companies today, V2 Cigs, makes all its e-cigarette cartridge batch test results available to the public.

It’s clear that even though electronic cigarette vapor is over a thousand times less harmful thank tobacco smoke, it’s still not the equivalent of fresh sea-side air. Yet e-cigarettes have proven themselves to be the the most effective and easiest way to quit smoking, since the invention of smoking! Those who switch to e-cigarettes with the intention of quitting are able to do so by gradually decreasing their nicotine intake using smaller nicotine dose cartridges over time. Smokers who have switched to e-cigarettes only wish that they had done so sooner. To summarise: While the verdict is still out on vaping, we know that smoking will kill you.
