I didn’t realize there was another follow up to the 2018 Study with roughly the same name. This was published in October 2020 and once again follows up on 29 of the original 44 smoking adults involved in the study. The aim of the study? “a long-term prospective assessment of respiratory parameters in a cohort of COPD patients who ceased or substantially reduced conventional cigarette use with ECs.”
Vapers are needed for a survey being conducted by The Cochrane Library. The Cochrane Library recently conducted a meta-analysis of 100s of different studies, related to the success of smoking cessation using nicotine e-cigarettes.
I’ll just let them explain it in plain english.
Nicotine e‐cigarettes probably do help people to stop smoking for at least six months. They probably work better than nicotine replacement therapy and nicotine‑free e‐cigarettes.
They may work better than no support, or behavioural support alone, and they may not be associated with serious unwanted effects.Key Messages of Cochrane Study
Talk to literally any vaper and they will tell you a very similar story. “I’ve smoked my whole life, tried almost everything to quit, vaping was the only thing that worked.” I have a very very similar story. This is one of the reasons vapers get so confused when people like the Surgeon General tell smokers that vaping wont help them .
Despite Jerome Adams doing everything he can to ensure that smokers keep smoking, people have still managed to find their way to vaping and have made the switch to less harmful nicotine alternatives. Thankfully, the science on the subject doesn’t change to fit the needs of the Surgeons General’s confusing agenda.
