More Than 60 Percent of Adults Who Use E-Cigarettes Want to Quit

    A survey of American adults who use e-cigarettes finds more than 60 percent say they want to quit, HealthDay reports.

    The survey, published in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research, found 16 percent of e-cigarette users said they planned to quit in the next month. More than 25 percent said they had tried to quit using e-cigarettes in the past year.

    “Most of the discussion about e-cigarettes has focused on the relative harm as compared to traditional cigarettes, the efficacy of e-cigarettes as a cessation device, and the alarming increase of their use in children,” study co-author Marc Steinberg, Director of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s Tobacco Research and Intervention Lab, said in a news release. “In addition to those issues, our data suggests that e-cigarette users do not want to use these devices forever. Eventually, they want to stop using e-cigarettes the same way a traditional smoker wants to quit smoking cigarettes.”
