Vapes Beat Nicotine Replacement Products in Quitting Smoking

A randomized, controlled trial found that e-cigarettes may be more successful at assisting with smoking cessation than nicotine replacement products. However, questions remain about the safety of e-cigarettes, as they have not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In this UK-based study, smokers who were interested in quitting were randomly assigned to either nicotine replacement products—provided for free for 3 months—or an e-cigarette starter pack. Both groups also received standard weekly behavioral support for a minimum of 4 weeks.
