E-Cigarettes Effectiveness Study

Not to bore too many people, but below is interesting for anyone considering an e-cig as an aid with quitting.
Though more interesting that today is Opening Day in baseball!

Follow-up data were available for 236 e-smokers, 491 tobacco smokers, and 232 dual smokers. All e-smokers were tobacco ex-smokers. At 12 months, 61.9% of the e-smokers were still abstinent from tobacco smoking; 20.6% of the tobacco smokers and 22.0% of the dual smokers achieved tobacco abstinence. Adjusting for potential confounders, tobacco smoking abstinence or cessation remained significantly more likely among e-smokers, whereas adding e-cigarettes to tobacco smoking did not enhance the likelihood of quitting tobacco and did not reduce tobacco cigarette consumption. E-smokers showed a minimal but significantly higher increase in self-rated health than other smokers. Non significant differences were found in self-reported serious adverse events (eleven overall).
