Are E-Cigarettes a Healthy Way to Quit Smoking?

Supporters say they appear to be effective. Critics say there are better and safer ways to quit smoking.

Smoking accounts for more than 480,000 deaths a year in the U.S. Can e-cigs help reduce the toll? PHOTO: CHRISTIAN COOMBES/GETTY IMAGES

Cigarette smoking has become significantly less popular in the U.S. over the past decade, but it remains a public-health scourge.

Smoking accounts for more than 480,000 deaths every year in this country, or about one of every five deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. An additional 16 million Americans live with a smoking-related disease, it says. Clearly more needs to be done to get Americans to quit smoking.

Some people say electronic cigarettes can help wean smokers off tobacco, at little risk to their health. For others, both of those assertions are false.

Jed E. Rose, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and director of the Duke Center for Smoking Cessation at Duke University, makes the case for e-cigarettes as a smoking-cessation tool. Arguing against it is Pamela Ling, a professor of medicine with the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California, San Francisco.

YES: They Appear to Be Effective—and Safer

By Jed E. Rose

In evaluating the potential public-health impact of e-cigarettes, we need to bear in mind the staggering toll of death and disease caused by cigarette smoking throughout the world. In this context, we should not discourage promising new approaches that might change this picture.

As with any new potentially therapeutic approach, we must evaluate e-cigarettes based on the information currently available, while recognizing that an exhaustive analysis of all of the potential long-term effects will require many years of study. And the information we have now shows that electronic cigarettes can safely help people quit smoking.

The U.S. Surgeon General and other experts have linked the vast majority of smoking-related disease to the combustion products of smoke, not to the nicotine that is present both in tobacco and in electronic cigarettes.

Nicotine is a powerfully addictive substance, but it is not the cause of cancer, lung disease or vascular disease seen in smokers. While quitting all nicotine-containing products may be an ideal goal, smokers who try to stop on their own have less than a 5% chance of long-term success, and only about a 10% chance with the assistance of a medical provider.

In this setting, the ability to switch from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes that contain nicotine but do not burn offers enormous promise as a means to save lives.

Researchers from highly credible organizations, among them the U.K. Center for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies and the University of Geneva’s Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, have concluded that e-cigarettes are helpful in reducing or eliminating tobacco use. And recently the British government’s drug regulatory authority approved an e-cigarette as a quit-smoking medicine.

This position is also supported by common sense, considering that every other form of nicotine replacement studied to date has been shown to help people stop smoking, including nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, nasal spray and inhalers.

What’s more, compared with those treatments, e-cigarettes can more effectively satisfy a smoker’s craving by delivering nicotine as rapidly as a cigarette, while also satisfying the habitual aspects of smoking. As e-cigarette technology improves, these devices will almost certainly become more-effective tools to aid smokers in breaking their addiction to combustible cigarettes.

Available evidence also overwhelmingly supports the view that e-cigarettes are reasonably safe and—most important—far less risky than cigarettes.

Despite expert consensus to that effect, some researchers have focused their attention on exaggerated health concerns. These reports have a sensational quality and often gain wide coverage by the press. For example, some early reports suggested that e-cigarettes produce formaldehyde, a toxic substance found in cigarette smoke. More recent research, however, has shown that under normal operating conditions, e-cigarettes release far less formaldehyde than tobacco cigarettes.

E-Cigarettes data

Moreover, because there are numerous carcinogens in cigarette smoke, the formaldehyde component of cigarette smoke has been estimated to raise smokers’ risk of cancer by less than 1 part in 1,000. Thus the overall cancer risk presented by formaldehyde in e-cigarette vapor is likely to be insignificant.

Still, it will take many years to fully establish the long-term safety of electronic cigarettes—during which time millions of tobacco smokers will needlessly die if they are discouraged from using alternatives that are almost certainly far less harmful.

Another report examining population data suggested that e-cigarettes may not be effective for smokers who want to quit. This report gained wide press coverage but was flawed because smokers who turn to e-cigarettes may be a self-selected group that finds it especially difficult to quit smoking.

The gold-standard scientific method for assessing effectiveness is the randomized clinical trial, and two trials to date have shown e-cigarettes can help smokers quit.

Having worked my entire career to develop effective smoking-cessation treatments, I have realized that current approaches are ineffective for the vast majority of smokers. Alternative approaches are urgently needed. The World Health Organization predicts a billion deaths will be attributable to smoking during the 21st century.

Electronic cigarettes have an unparalleled potential to reduce the public-health impact of smoking, by allowing smokers to replace the habit and nicotine of smoking without the toxic effects of combustion.

NO: There Are Better and Safer Ways to Quit Smoking

By Pamela Ling

Doctors should support their patients in every effort to quit smoking. But doctors are also expected to recommend treatments that are safe and effective. Electronic cigarettes are neither.

While there are numerous anecdotes of people using e-cigarettes to help them quit smoking and e-cigarettes have been widely promoted as an effective way to quit, the medical evidence supporting these claims is extremely sparse.

There is only one randomized clinical trial—the type of study considered most reliable—comparing e-cigarettes with a nicotine patch. It showed low quit rates and virtually no difference: 7% of nicotine e-cigarette users and 6% of nicotine patch users quit.

No other randomized clinical trial has compared e-cigarettes with the most effective treatment regimens widely recommended for health-care providers and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (which include the medications bupropion and varenicline, and nicotine replacement therapy through gum, nasal spray, inhaler, lozenge or patch—all of which should be combined with counseling for greatest effect).

Expert opinion is arrayed against e-cigarettes as a quitting aid. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the best independent panel of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine, concluded a major review of the medical evidence, finding that there is insufficient evidence to recommend use of e-cigarettes for tobacco cessation. And major medical and health organizations including the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians and the American Public Health Association do not recommend using electronic cigarettes for smoking cessation, because the quality of the purported evidence for their effectiveness is poor.

So-called common sense—the idea that e-cigarettes should be effective because other forms of nicotine replacement have been, and more so because they mimic smoking—simply doesn’t stand up when we look at the scientific evidence.

Health concerns

It gets worse. Most people who use e-cigarettes continue to smoke—so now they have simply added e-cigarettes to their tobacco use.

Many people have tried using electronic cigarettes for smoking cessation based on advertising, news reports and word-of-mouth. Studies that have been done of people who used e-cigarettes on their own—as opposed to those who participated in randomized trials—reflect the various devices and ways consumers in the real world are trying to use them to quit smoking.

At least 20 such studies have examined whether people using e-cigarettes quit smoking tobacco over time, compared with tobacco smokers not using e-cigarettes.

A comprehensive review of all these controlled studies found that people using electronic cigarettes were less likely to quit smoking tobacco. In the real world, most e-cigarette users continue to smoke tobacco—which suggests that electronic cigarettes may actuallykeep people smoking traditional cigarettes.

The rapid evolution of the e-cigarette market further undermines the argument for them.

Most of the studies on electronic cigarettes have been conducted on first-generation products, which are rapidly being replaced by a dizzying array of new products, most of which have not been studied.

While some of these newer devices may deliver nicotine more effectively than first-generation devices—which should make them better quitting tools—they also generate more heat and produce more chemicals and fine particles, which may have adverse health effects.

Even assuming they are still safer than smoking tobacco, asking that e-cigarettes be safer than the world’s most deadly consumer product sets the bar extremely low.

Further skepticism about electronic cigarettes as a way to quit smoking might be prompted by the simple question, who profits?

While e-cigarette advocacy organizations position themselves as independent of tobacco companies, all of the major U.S. cigarette companies have acquired electronic-cigarette subsidiaries, and the electronic-cigarette brands with the largest market share are owned by cigarette companies.

It is hard to believe that these companies would churn out products that they believe would damage the tobacco market, which is many times bigger than the e-cigarette market.

We have treatments that work for smoking cessation. E-cigarettes are not one of them, and it’s long past time to stop selling them as such.

Tips on How to Help Others Quit Smoking and Start Vaping!

Do you know of any family member or friend who still smokes a regular cigarette? Do you wish they could quit or at least switch to vaping? It may or may not be easy to convince but some of the following tips might help!!

  1. Share the information that vaping is healthier than smoking.
    1. There are over 1000 chemicals in a regular cigarette.
    2. Over 300 chemicals are known to be very harmful; some are even poisonous.
    3. Electronic Cigarette doesn’t have any of those chemicals. It only has Nicotine which is needed to satisfy a smoker’s craving.
  1. Not all E-cigs are same – If somebody has tried an e-cig in the past and that had not worked for them, explain to them that all E-cigs are not same. There are many different kinds and a person may get a totally different experience in terms of taste/flavor/vapor from one e-cig to another. So they should at try few different ones before giving up. However, pushing too strongly may not work. So be gentle and logical.
  1. First few days after switching
    1. Tell them that in the first few weeks most people will experience more coughing due to the lungs expelling tar build up from past years of smoking.
    2. New Ecig vapers need to drink more fluids. A gallon of liquids is recommended per day if and when possible!
    3. Flavorful throat lozenges can help to keep mouth and throat moist since some tend to get a dry mouth.
  1. Explain different options of electronic cigarette kits to start off with.
  • Don’t ask them to try the fancy types of ecigs first. The simple Cig-A-Likes or Ego-style with clearomizers are generally less scary since they are close in shape/form to regular cigarettes.
  1. Share changes you have experienced.
  • Share how your own taste buds and your sense of smell have enhanced. Share if you feel healthier and how your clothes and hair don’t smell anymore.
  1. Ask them to try different flavors. Availability of E-cigs in different flavors offers many choices to experience. Often once the people develop a liking for any of the sweet flavors, they don’t like the traditional smoking flavor anymore.
  1. Share with people how the hand-to-mouth action is extremely helpful in the transition compared to any other quit-smoking alternatives like nicotine patches and gums.
  1. Availability of different nicotine levels in E-cigarettes is a huge plus. One can easily and gradually reduce the nicotine levels, ultimately going down to 0mg, which essentially means ‘No Smoking’
  1. Encourage them to try an electric cigarette but don’t be pushy.

Some people may not be ready for the switch. Still sharing what you have gone through and what to expect will be the biggest encouragement people may see/hear!

13 Helpful tips for your electronic cigarettes!

  1. When first using an electronic cigarette, read complete directions. Most of the e-cigarettes work in a similar way but due to a variety of options and different kinds available in the market, it is always a good idea to know more about the type of e-cig that you might have bought
  2. Charge the batteries before usage since they are not always charged when shipped (for safety reasons).
  3. Do not force a cartridge onto a battery if it seems threading is tight. Redo and attach again gently, else battery threads may get damaged.
  4. Take small drags and work up to a full drag similar to using a regular cigarette/analog. Inhaling too hard or too frequently can cause coughing and may also heat up the cartridge.
  5. Drink plenty of water/liquids up to a gallon a day to help with the transition from cigarettes to e-cigarettes. This is normal and usually subsides after a few weeks to a month. The reason is that your lungs are cleaning themselves and the coughing is helping to rid your lungs of the film/tar build up.
  6. Often the directions say to wait until the LED lights start flashing on the battery before putting on recharge. However, once you get familiar enough, it is best to recharge the battery before the LED starts flashing. Another way to tell if a battery needs charging is when the vaping/dragging/puffing gets weak and for most standard (cigalike) batteries it is 4 to 6 hrs. For larger batteries (EGO, Mods) the smoking time could be different before they should be recharged.
  7. Important: It is strongly recommended that once a week (or twice a week if you are a heavy e-cig user) clean the inside threads of the battery.
    • Lightly dip a Qtip in white rubbing alcohol clean/sweep inside of the connection thread walls. Make sure that liquid alcohol is not too much that it drips the liquid inside the battery threads.
    • Repeat step a) with a dry Qtip.
    • A toothbrush can also be used instead of a Qtip.
  8. Since the batteries have electronic circuit inside, always store the batteries under normal room temperatures, away from extreme temperatures and humidity.
  9. Do not carry e-cigarettes or batteries in tight/snug pockets like Blue Jeans. The LED tip might fall off when taking out the battery from a tight pocket.
  10. Do not carry e-cigarette batteries along with car keys, loose change, or cell phones in the same pocket/purse/jacket. This is dangerous and more so for ego type devices. It may cause a shortage/ combustion effect. Keep in separate areas when traveling.
  11. Do not leave your e-cigarette in vehicles during hot weather or extreme cold.
  12. Keep cartridges/tanks/clearomizers disconnected from batteries when not using for long periods at a time. Once opened/used, store clearomizers/tanks in upright position, unless they are empty. Laying them flat will dry out the atomizer/wicks if any ejuice still remains inside (since air can flow through them to dry them faster). Recap them after opening and when not using.
  13. At the end of the day it is best to disconnect and recap cartridges/tanks/cleaomizers and reconnect the following day before usage.

Most of all enjoy the new and better alternative to being smoke free with so many choices that is yours to make!

What Celebrities Are Vapers?

Ecigs have been a part of Hollywood culture even before they became mainstream a few years ago. The celebrities who vape range from starlets to Oscar-winners!

deppJohnny Depp introduced the electronic cigarette to the big screen in his film The Tourist, in which Depp smoked an e-cig in front of a “no smoking” sign. Depp has been a long-time smoker of tobacco cigarettes and has tried to kick the habit for some time now. While he debuted the e-cig on the big screen, Depp has also brought vaping into his personal life. He has even upgraded his electronic cigarette to a more advanced e-cig alternative.

When she takes a break from singing, Katy Perry may be KatyPerryECigspotted puffing on an e-cig. While there may not be many pictures to prove it, some sources report that she looks to be a fairly experienced e-cig user.

leonardo dicaprio 2Another celebrity who has been seen sporting an ecig is Leonardo DiCaprio. With California being one of the first states to ban smoking in most indoor spaces in 1995, celebrities like Leonardo seem to be enjoying the ability to smoke the e-cigs indoors. He was spotted puffing away on an e-cig at the 2014 Golden Globes to reportedly help calm his nerves before winning the Best Actor award in the musical/comedy category.


There have been a number of prominent female celebrities lindsay-lohan-vapingthat have been spotted using the e-cig, including Lindsay Lohan. This switch to e-cigs came after Lindsay’s father reportedly was worried about the damage she was doing to herself with tobacco cigarettes and recommended she try out the e-cigs.

sean_pennAnother celebrity you may spot “vaping” is Sean Penn. Even during interviews, Sean is not shy about breaking out his e-cig and puffing away. Sean vowed to quit his four-pack-a-day smoking habit (tobacco cigarettes) after watching his father die of lung cancer in 2001.


After being scrutinized for smoking tobacco cigarettes tooemedtv_121387 close to her children, Britney Spears can now be spotted using the e-cigs. Britney has publicly reported that it was electronic cigarettes that have allowed her to take control of her life and finally “win” her battle against the habit.


emedtv_121384Robert Pattinson has been reported to be pretty open about his effort to take care of himself and kick the habit of smoking tobacco cigarettes. In a 2012 interview, Rob pulled out his electric cigarette and explained that he was using it to help get over his habit. In 2014, he has been photographed on his film sets still puffing away on the e-cigs.

7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Listening To Music You might be more likely to keep mishearing a lyric if you find the incorrect version amusing.

study published in PLOS One last year argued that the wittier you find your misheard version, the more likely you are to keep hearing it.

(Oh, but in “Blank Space” Taylor Swift definitely does sing “Starbucks lovers”, I’m sorry you are all just wrong.)

2. We mishear lyrics because of the powerful role expectations play in our hearing.

In the 1950s, a Harper’s magazine writer coined the term “Mondegreens” for misheard lyrics, in reference to a Scottish folk song in which she heard the words “Lady Mondegreen” instead of “laid him on the green”.

This happens because the meaning we create from songs doesn’t come entirely from what we hear.

“There’s a piece of what we understand that comes from the sound that comes in our ear,” Mark Liberman, a linguist at the University of Pennsylvania, told PRI last November, but “there’s a piece of what we understand that comes from the expectations in our brain”.

3. Songs that get stuck in your head are called “earworms”.

Victoria Williamson. researcher at the University of Sheffield, has researched why a certain song gets stuck in your head. Earworms can have several triggers, she explained to the BBC in 2012.

Some are obvious: having heard the song recently and repeatedly can contribute. But so can seeing a single word that reminds you of that song (for example, Williamson says walking into a shoe shop called Faith led to George Michael’s song of the same name being stuck in her head all afternoon).

Even stress can trigger an earworm. One participant in an online survey Williamson organised got a song stuck in her head during a big exam when she was 16 – then at every stressful life event since then it reappeared, even years later.

4. The best way to get rid of an earworm might be to get a different song stuck in there.

Trying to specifically not think about a particular thing is very hard, and tends to make you think more about it that you would have otherwise. So just thinking your way out of an earworm is not going to work.

Here’s some information that might help, though: Recent thoughts are likely to come back if you aren’t actually finished with the thought, according to a paper in Applied Cognitive Psychology. This fits with a different study published in PLOS One, in which some people report that playing your earworm all the way through, either in real life or in your head, can get rid of it.

If that doesn’t work, one way to game the system is to listen to specific music you don’t mind having stuck in your head. Then at least you can choose your earworm.


5. The “mere exposure effect” makes us like certain music just because we hear it a lot.

The "mere exposure effect" makes us like certain music just because we hear it a lot.

But, crucially, there’s a point at which it then really really starts to grate – and you get an inverted-U graph like the one above.

In an essay at Aeon, Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis, director of the music cognition lab at the University of Arkansas, explains why repetition makes us like music: “People seem to misattribute their increased perceptual fluency – their improved ability to process the triangle or the picture or the melody – not to the prior experience, but to some quality of the object itself.”

Basically, hearing a song you’ve heard before makes you feel clever, because your brain has already figured it out.

6. Album sales in a particular genre of music go up as the music gets simpler.

“This can be interpreted as music becoming increasingly formulaic in terms of instrumentation once commercial or mainstream success sets in,” say authors of the study that was published in PLOS One.

7. People get chills listening to all different sorts of music.

Ever got goosebumps when listening to your favourite music? It turns out that it’s not the type of music that dictates whether you’ll get chills, but how much you’re into it.

paper published in the journal Social Psychological & Personality Science found that musical preference didn’t make a difference when trying to predict whether someone is likely to get chills when listening to music.

In fact the study, which involved 196 mostly young adults from the University of North Carolina, found that “openness to experience” was the biggest predictor of who would get chills when listening to music. Openness to experience is a factor that predicts how much someone is into music, explains Williamson in a blog post about the paper. Essentially, this means that if you’re really into your music, whatever that music is, you’re likely to get the occasional shiver down your spine.
