Another study confirms quit success for vapers

The oft-heard litany of journalists, about how there isn't sufficient data to indicate whether vaping helps you quit smoking, is increasingly difficult to repeat with credibility. Those who pass it unthinkingly along are already ignoring a good deal of data. Another study has appeared, this one out of the University of Massachusetts at Boston, with a strong conclusion that electronic cigarettes are indeed an aid in quitting smoking.

The evidence one must ignore to repeat this falsehood starts with the thousands of enthusiastic testimonials from vapers themselves. These are typically dismissed as "anecdotal". Of course it is arguable that thousands of anecdotes make a statistic, but not for those repeating this self-serving litany. They insist on seeing successful vaping quitters as individuals, not as a population, even as they claim to be seeking a "population-level" solution to the smoking epidemic. When does a collection of individuals become a population? Only when the regulators see fit to admit the truth.

Scientists Lois Biener and Lee Hargraves looked at 695 smokers in Indianapolis, Indiana and Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, over a period of three years. Daily users were six times more successful in quitting smoking than non-users or casual experimenters.

Lead author Biener concludes: "This study provides strong support for the potential harm-reducing value of electronic cigarettes, which allow smokers to get the nicotine they want without exposing themselves to the 4,000 toxic chemicals in tobacco cigarettes."

The study, the first longitudinal study to group subjects by frequency of use, was conducted at U. Mass/Boston's Center for Survey Research with funding from the National Cancer Institute, and was published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research.

Says Biener, "Policy makers need to think carefully before enacting any laws that make adult smokers less likely to try these products."
