hardcore-smokers-quitThe results of a 12 month study of 300 hardcore smokers has shed some light on the whether electronic cigarettes might actually assist with smoking cessation.  Italian researchers gave electronic cigarettes to smokers with no intention of kicking the habit.

The study was led by Dr. Riccardo Polosa with the University of Catania.  Polosa’s previous work (this and this) was some of the first to show that electronic cigarettes might be the missing link in the losing fight against smoking addiction.

Though it requires translating, an announcement about the study can be found here

The Results

The Efficiency and Safety of an Electronic Cigarette Study (ECLAT, for short) found that 8.7% of participants (smokers exhibiting no intention to quit smoking) were found to have stopped smoking by the end of the study.  By comparison, quitting cold turkey works about 9% of the time for smokers that actually want to quit.

Of those that did quit, 70% ceased use of electronic cigarettes by the end of the study.  This shows that for a solid piece of smokers that might transition to electronic cigarettes, a large percentage are likely to quit use of both products.

An additional 10% of participants had reduced their smoking consumption by more than half.

The study used 300 participants averaging age 44 who had no intention of quitting cigarettes and had not tried electronic cigarettes previously.  In addition to cessation and smoking reduction rates, the study found no relevant side effects to the use of the electronic cigarettes and a documented improvement in health for the sample.

Dr. Sebastiano Antonio Pacino, President of LIAF (Italian Anti Smoking League), believes the results to be promising.  “Cessation and reduction rates obtained with electronic cigarettes are an important success in terms of smokers’ risk reduction,” says Pacino.  “Especially if we compare this data with the national average of smoking cessation in Italy which is 0.02%, based on ISTAT data.”
