Three times more effective

E-cigarettes are almost three times more effective than nicotine replacement aids at helping smokers quit, research suggests, according to an article published by the dailymail.co.uk.

A study published by University College London scientists found vapers were 95 percent more likely to be successful than those not using the gadgets in their attempts to kick the habit.

In comparison, smokers prescribed nicotine replacement therapy, such as gums, patches and lozenges, were 34 percent more likely to succeed.

The research of almost 20,000 smokers also found e-cigarettes were more successful than prescription drugs that reduce nicotine cravings.
