Study: Smokers Prefer to Quit Using E-Cigs

Daryl CuraA new consumer behavior study has found that smokers very much prefer electronic cigarettes to other cessation options. The survey of more than 20,000 households throughout the U.S. turned up some not surprising but still encouraging results.

The study comes from Kantar Media — the second largest market research firm on the planet. It found that of those individuals which had used a product to quit smoking within the last 12 months, 57% used electronic cigarettes. This far surpassed the 39% which used a prescription drug and 39% which used over-the-counter methods like gums, lozenges, and patches. There was some overlap in product use.

The study also looked at a number of demographic data points for those that used electronic cigarettes. E-cig users were more likely to be young, male, to have lower household incomes than the national average, and were more likely to play video games and poker, more likely to watch reality TV, and more likely to go to bars and night clubs. I would argue that all these trends are also the case for cigarette smokers — and since e-cig users are predominantly former or current smokers, this is not a surprise.

The study also found that e-cig users were more likely to live in the south (which again, I think relates to normal smoking figures). However, in the region including Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee, the ratio of electronic to tobacco cigarette users was nearly two to one. Holy crap! E-cigs really are stomping out smoking!

The study was covered by TIME, and you can download a free copy of it here — though like any good marketing company, they hold what you want ransom for some of your information.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
