To determine whether the use of e-cigarettes is related to smoking cessation attempts and successful quitting, a study entitled “E-cigarette use is associated with an increase in smoking cessation attempts and successful quitting in the past 12 months” investigated smoking cessation from 2006 to 2016 Try and quit smoking situation. Data extracted from two surveys based on the US population indicate that the current use of e-cigarettes is indeed associated with an increase in smoking cessation attempts and an increase in smoking cessation success.
Researchers analyzed 25-44 in the 2006-2016 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and 2006-2007, 2010-2011 and 2014-2015 “Current Population Survey Tobacco Use Supplementary Survey” (TUS-CPS) Data for the age group. From the NHIS data, it can be seen that the number of e-cigarette users has risen in direct proportion to the number of people who tried to quit smoking and quit successfully. The TUS-CPS data also produced similar results, indicating that the use of e-cigarettes and the cessation attempts and success of the past 12 months Quitting smoking is significantly related.
Researchers pointed out that these findings are closely related to future tobacco policy decisions. However, just last week, a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that the smoking rate in the United States hit a record low, but they refused to recognize that the use of e-cigarettes may have played an important role in this regard.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believes that the continued decline in smoking rates in the United States for many years is attributed to the government’s tobacco control policy. Although they know that many people in the United States are using e-cigarettes, they do not believe that e-cigarettes are the key reason for the decline in smoking rates in the United States.
At the same time, a study based on the FDA-funded Tobacco and Healthy Population Assessment (PATH) was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of electric cigarettes and assisted cessation. The results show that electronic cigarettes are the preferred smoking cessation aid for smokers.
“Our research found that e-cigarettes are a more popular smoking cessation option than nationally approved smoking cessation medicine products. As a smoking cessation aid among American quitters, e-cigarettes will be favored by the majority of quitters. In the future, with the The continuous development of e-cigarette products makes the delivery of nicotine closer to the feeling obtained from cigarettes, and they may play a greater role in helping smokers quit smoking.” PATH researchers concluded.
In fact, not only in the United States, but also in many other countries in the United Kingdom, e-cigarettes have long become the most popular smoking cessation aids for smokers. According to the latest report released by the UK Department of Public Health, e-cigarettes remain the most popular smoking cessation aid in the UK. The report also emphasizes that e-cigarettes increase the likelihood of successful quitting smoking by about 50% and reduce health risks by at least 95% . As everyone pays more and more attention to health issues, the harm of smoking is also paid more and more attention. Because electronic cigarettes have no burning process, they have no tar, no carcinogens, and no second-hand smoke. Compared with traditional tobacco products, electronic cigarettes The words are closer to the demands of consumers, and have been loved by more and more people in recent years
