More Proof That E-Cigarettes Are a Smart Choice for Smokers


Lung AshtrayCan e-cigs help you quit smoking? In a controlled test at the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Geneva in Switzerland, ex-smokers were given e-cigarettes to vape while other ex-smokers within the test group were allowed to choose any other method that would keep them from returning to their former smoking habits. 

“E-cigarettes may contribute to relapse prevention in former smokers and smoking cessation in current smokers”. 

The results were impressive. After one year, only 6 percent of those given e-cigarettes relapsed back to smoking tobacco cigarettes entirely. 

Even better news is that of those who used e-cigarettes, 46 percent had eliminated tobacco from their lives entirely by the end of one year.

What happened to those who tried other methods? That group experienced a whopping 88 percent relapse rate after only one month! 

Every Study Counts

The official conclusion of this study was that “E-cigarettes may contribute to relapse prevention in former smokers and smoking cessation in current smokers.” In other words, e-cigarettes help people quit smoking. 

Although the institute conducting the study admitted it was “exploratory”, it does confirm what we at E-Cigarette News and many vapers know already…that e-cigarettes are one of the most powerful smoking alternatives ever invented. 

We believe they’re also the right choice for people who wish to become ex-smokers. 

Despite what anti-e-cig groups and regulators say to foster their own agendas, there is already empirical evidence that e-cigarettes are a major gateway away from, not toward, smoking.

Of course, the choice is yours – choose a product the kills half the users, or one that has already been proven to be significantly safer.  

Vaper vs Smoker


In the light of so many self-serving political interest groups who choose not to look at the science, E-Cigarette News will continue to bring you the latest information about e-cigarette safety and efficacy. 

The study led by Professor Robert West of the University of London's department of epidemiology and public health surveyed people who had stopped smoking in a 12-month period between July 2009 and February 2014. Those using e-cigarettes were around 60% more likely to quit than those using nicotine replacement therapy or just willpower.
