A latest study led by a group of researchers from Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, has found that beside the use of e-cigarettes there are certain other factors which may help smokers quit.

According to latest findings, there is a significant relationship between the frequency of e-cigarette use, the number of attempts to quit cigarettes, and cigarette abstinence.

The day-long study was conducted on 24,500 current or recent former cigarette smokers from the TUS-CPS survey and it has proved that the cigarette quit attempts and quit success were directly related to the number of days of e-cigarette use.
