Study showed linear correlation between quit attempts and quit success and the frequency of e-cigarette use. Attempting to quit in the first place was more likely among smokers using e-cigarettes than non-users.

Using e-cigarettes frequently does help smokers break the habit, according to a US study involving more than 24,500 people who currently smoke or have recently quit.

It is the largest sample of smokers studied to date and the researchers say the findings help to unpick some of the mixed messages about whether or not e-cigarettes have benefit in quit attempts.

But the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has said it remains concerned about the evidence base for the efficacy and long-term safety of e-cigarettes.

The study, carried out by a team from Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington DC, used data from the 2014–2015 Tobacco Use Supplement-Current Population Survey — a survey done every three to four years across the country using phone or in-person interviews — and found that the key to success seemed to be how often smokers were using e-cigarettes when trying to quit.

Analysis showed a linear correlation between quit attempts and quit success and the frequency of e-cigarette use[1].

Attempting to quit in the first place was more likely among smokers using e-cigarettes than non-users, the researchers found.

And among smokers making at least one quit attempt, success was higher among those with at least five days use of e-cigarettes in the last month. 

However, the data also showed that among those making at least one quit attempt, success was lower among individuals who had used e-cigarettes at some point in the past.

Alex MacKinnon, director for Scotland at the RPS, said: “The RPS remains concerned about the evidence-base for the efficacy and long-term safety of e-cigarette use. We acknowledge that, once we have MHRA regulated and approved products on the market, there may be a role for e-cigarettes as a potential part of smoking cessation programmes.
