(Vocus) September 14, 2010 — According to Health Life a new South Africa study shows 45 percent of South African smokers who used electronic cigarettes were able to quit traditional tobacco smoking within two months.The e-cigarette is an electronic device that delivers nicotine through water vapor without the harmful tar, carcinogens, smoke, or odor found in traditional cigarettes.
In the first local medical study on the efficiency of electronic cigarettes to help smokers kick the habit, a team of doctors supplied 349 patients with electronic cigarettes over a period of eight weeks. All participating doctors agreed that e-cigarettes are a more significantly healthy alternative to conventional smoking.
The study’s outcome revealed that:
* 6% of smokers quit within two weeks increasing to 45% within eight weeks.
* 52% of all patients reported both increased levels of energy and visible improvement in their physical appearance.
* When asked what factors about smoking tobacco cigarettes were the hardest to give up, 49% of patients said nicotine cravings and 24% reported the habit itself was the most difficult to break. Twenty-seven percent of all participating smokers said that a combination of all factors (the habit, nicotine, the taste and feeling of smoking) made it hard to quit.
* When asked if an e-cigarette could act as an agent to overcome all the physical and psychological challenges to quit tobacco smoking, all doctors said “Yes”.
Dr Clifford Hulley, one of the participating medical professionals in the survey, reported that ” an e-cigarette is the most effective treatment method on the market for quitting tobacco smoking” .
