Can E-Cigs Help you Quit?

Your Health Minute

A new study finds smoking e-cigarettes does not help you stop smoking.

A new study suggests e-cigarettes may hinder the success of smokers who are trying to quit.

Researchers tracked 13-hundred smokers who planned to quit after leaving the hospital.

Those who used e-cigarettes after being discharged were less likely to stop using tobacco than non users.

But, experts say more research is still needed to assess if e-cigarettes help or hurt attempts to quit smoking.

 

 

Patients using e-cigarettes after discharge generally used them infrequently and not every day.
