The use of E-cigarettes to help people quit smoking is becoming more and more popular. Little is known about the health risks of using e-cigarettes and there is also debate about whether they help to quit smoking cigarettes and about how effective they are.e-cigarettes

The following is the result of a survey done in the EU.

Expectations: Why people used e-cigarettes

67% to stop or reduce smoking                                                                                                                                                             44% to smoke where smoking traditional cigarettes is not allowed                                                                                             24% because it’s cool

Reality: How e-cigarettes has effected smoking habits

14% quit entirely                                                                                                                                                                                      13% quit for a while                                                                                                                                                                                21% cut down                                                                                                                                                                                           45% did not stop smoking                                                                                                                                                                     4% smoked more                                                                                                                                                                                     3% don’t know

Even though the most common reason for using e-cigarettes is to stop or cut down on tobacco smoking, 45 % of users surveyed did not reduce tobacco smoking at all.

In reality there is not much evidence available to say that e-cigarettes is an effective tool to stop smoking as not enough research has been done in comparing the results of traditional ways to quit.

The biggest worry is not that e-cigarettes can help to stop smoking cigarettes but what are the harmful effects of smoking e-cigarettes. If nicotine is being used then there is probably a strong case for them to have harmful effects.
