Use of E-Cigarettes A Success in Making People Quit Smoking

Health Monitor

A UK study has shown that use of e-cigarettes were found to be more successful in making people quit smoking. 
The study conducted among 19,000 people from 2006 to 2018 funded by Cancer Research UK has shown that people using e-cigarettes are 95% more likely to quit smoking. E-cigarettes are tobacco free and contain nicotine-laced liquids. Now leading tobacco companies sell e-cigarettes. 

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) was only 34% successful in making people quit smoking. There are an estimated 1.1 billion smokers world wide and 80% of them are in middle-and-low income countries.
