Marketing ploy. Scientists have found that vaping does not help to quit smoking cigarettes at all

Research shows that smokers are more likely to give up e-cigarettes than regular ones.

Related video < p>There is an opinion that electronic cigarettes are allegedly able to help smokers get rid of a bad habit. However, a new study suggests that this is more of a marketing ploy than reality, writes the Daily Mail.

A team of researchers from the George Washington University used in their study a group of nearly 50,000 Americans who were contacted annually to discuss the use tobacco products. As a result, scientists selected a group of 545 people who used both cigarettes and vapes at the same time.

The scientists then followed each of the recipients over the next four years. Surveys have shown that not only did smokers fail to kick their habit with vaping, but they were also more likely to quit e-cigarettes than regular cigarettes.

The study showed that during the first year, the number of people who continued to smoke dropped significantly. In the second year, the number of people who still continued to smoke was just over 59% – 322 people. By the third year, the number of smokers decreased by 31% compared to the previous year and amounted to 222 people. The minimum was reached by the fourth year – 191 people were still smoking, but in the fifth year the results rolled back – 217 people from the original sample continued to smoke.

The study also showed that:

  • 86.9% of recipients continued to smoke cigarettes and vapes after the first year;
  • 80.7% continued to “double smoke” after the second year;
  • 76.7% continued ” double smoking” after the third year;
  • 67.9% continued to smoke cigarettes and vaping after the fourth year.

Scientists also found that over the years of research, almost twice as many who ultimately gave up vaping (59%) rather than cigarettes (32.1%). Thus, the researchers proved that the vape industry's claim that their devices help to quit smoking is actually not true.
