Legalise Vaping Australia say a major study published in the prestigious Addictive Behaviours journal finds daily vapers are 100% more likely to quit smoking successfully.
This is a problem for Australian smokers and current vapers because the federal government has banned over-the-counter sales and made accessing nicotine containing eliquid very difficult to do.
The research was led by Tianze Sun, National Centre for Youth Substance Use Research at the University of Queensland, in conjunction with other academics and the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence on Achieving the Tobacco Endgame.
The authors say: “E-cigarettes may benefit public health if they are effective for smoking cessation. Evidence suggests that the frequency of e-cigarette use is likely an important predicator of smoking cessation success, so we examined the associations between frequency of e-cigarette use and smoking reduction and cessation in an Australian population sample of past year adult smokers.”
