In a recent survey conducted by the University of London it appeared that over 70% of smokers had quit smoking using e-cigarettes and 38% had not had a traditional cigarette in over a year.
Are E-Cigarettes As Addictive As Traditional Cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes did a study about their thoughts about whether or not the e-cigarette was as addictive as the traditional cigarette. Just 18% of e-cig users thought e-cigs were addictive like cigarettes. Only 18% of smokers said their cravings for the e-cigarette were strong. The study also revealed that the smokers were waiting longer in the day before having their first puff. Here are a few important results about smokers switching to the electronic cigarette.
- Users reported improved breathing or the ability to breathe better
- The cravings were far less than before
- Less aching in the throat and jaw area
Could the EU Ban on Zero Nicotine Send Ex-Smokers Back To Cigarettes?
The EU tobacco directive aims to allow a maximum of .4% of nicotine in electronic cigarettes according to Chris Price of the Electronic Cigarette Consumer Association. Only 1% of users in a survey were using zero nicotine in their e-cigarettes. Most of the users were at the .8% nicotine level.
Despite these results the Electronic Cigarette Consumer Association claims, the tobacco directive remains in effect, a ban. This information can be found at www.ecigarettedirect.co.uk.
