Smoking is a nasty habit, but many of us engage in it regardless of all the warnings. And that isn’t because we don’t believe that the damage it inflicts is real, but rather because smoking is so highly addictive that it’s hard to quit it for good. Luckily for us, e-cigs and vaping have started to arise as actual and effective alternatives to the good old fashioned way of smoking, namely via rolled tobacco cigarettes.
But up until recently, there were no viable studies conducted on whether or not vaping actually helps you quit smoking or is in any way, shape or form healthier than smoking plain old tobacco. Fortunately, a new and conclusive study has just appeared, and it seems that e-cigs can actually help smokers put their unhealthy and damaging vice behind them for good.
But smoking e-cigs instead of tobacco and having it actually help you quit smoking for good comes with some conditions. First of all, you need to keep at it and use e-cigs daily.
Of course, you need to also stop smoking actual tobacco cigarettes, or at least abstain for most of the month in order for this to work. But this new study actually shows that each day you spend vaping instead of smoking actually reduces the chances of returning to tobacco by 10%.
On top of that, vapers are three times more likely to quit smoking for good than those that attempt it through other means. So, all in all, it seems that e-cigs are actually a viable alternative that can help even hardcore smokers quit, but you need to remember that it works along the same lines as curing heroin addiction through methadone. Therefore, don’t rely solely on e-cigs to help you quit your vice.
