Can Electronic Cigarettes Help You Quit Smoking?

Can Electronic Cigarettes help you quit smoking ? Probably. But the companies who sell these devices are not in a position to tell you that. Because like traditional tobacco cigarettes, the FDA has not approved electronic cigarettes, so they are not being sold as smoking cessation devices, but rather as a Safer, Healthier, Cleaner, Less Expensive “smoking alternative” for people who want to enjoy those advantages and be able to smoke in public places (and in their, and other peoples homes without smoking/stinking everything up).

E-cigarettes are an alternative nicotine delivery system. Common sense would dictate that they could be effectively used as part of an overall smoking cessation program, similar to the way nicotine gum, patches and inhalers are.

And here is an interesting fact about electronic cigarette nicotine cartridges: They come in several different nicotine levels – high, medium, low, and zero nicotine. Conceivably a person could slowly wean themselves from their nicotine addiction by progressively lowering their nicotine intake levels. It’s important to note that some cartridges with “high” stated nicotine levels may still deliver considerably less nicotine per inhale than a traditional cigarette (compare the actual mg’s. of nicotine of each to be certain).

So how many smokers successfully quit using the electronic cigarette? It’s too soon to say for sure and no organized studies have been performed to date. However, if one were to go to the numerous “vaping” forums they would see many testimonials of people who have kicked the habit for good using these devices. Some of these success stories are from people who have smoked over a pack a day for decades.

Until in-depth clinical studies are done, we are going to have to rely on anecdotal testimonials and our own reasonable judgement. Do your research and educate yourself on the facts. Then you will be well equipped to make and intelligent adult decision if this is something that can help you quit smoking.

Here’s the bottom line: No device, even one as promising as the e-cigarette, is going to be a “silver bullet” that can make a smoker quit overnight. Successfully quitting smoking forever starts with a strong conviction to quit. If a person truly wants to quit then the Electronic Cigarette may prove to be a very helpful tool in realizing that goal.

But let’s face it… many smokers DON”T want to quit! They just enjoy smoking too much. For this group, electronic smoking can be a much healthier alternative… hopefully one that will keep them alive a lot longer.
