Adults who use e-cigs may be more likely to quit smoking cigarettes, according to study

Local News

CNN Newsource (localmemphis.com) – Adult vapers may find it easier to kick the habit of smoking cigarettes.

A study tracked more than 5,000 daily cigarette smokers for two years in France. Smokers who used electronic cigarettes — or vape pens — smoked fewer cigarettes each day and were more than one-and-a-half times more likely to quit.

Researchers also looked at former smokers. They found that those who vaped were more likely to relapse. The study was published in the journal Jama Internal Medicine.

The research only looked at adult smokers. As for teens, the Centers for Disease Control says they may be more likely to smoke cigarettes in the future if they vape.
