Could the electronic cigarette have played a role in the 200,000 people stopped smoking thanks to a CDC ad campaign, and should they really take all the glory as reports suggest that there were more hidden forces at play?
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/11/2013 -- Electronic cigarette usage has been growing in leaps and bounds and with the latest news from the CDC that over 200,000 Americans stopped smoking thanks to an ad campaign that they rolled out which ended in June 2012. What this technically means is that not all of these gave up smoking outright but rather gave up on smoking tobacco products. This means that there is usually a 20% absorption rate by tobacco smokers to use e cigarettes and this could be the main underlying principle thus the loss of such tobacco smokers would have resulted in an possible new 40 000 smokers of the e cig.
There were also released numbers that an estimated 1.6 million smokers attempted to quit smoking in 2012 and this is only the tip of the iceberg as there are more that would not have been accounted for. For all those who tried to quit there would have been numerous methods that would have been in place to assist them ranging from herbal cigarettes, nicotine patches, nicotine gum and the electronic cigarette. These have been said to have moderate success, but the one that has had the most users and greatest rate of acceptance is the electric cigarette.
So far all the success can be boiled down to 2 main factors; these are the absolute lack in numbers of any causalities and fatalities and the lack the amount of users that claim the electronic cigarette has helped them overcome tobacco smoking. Yet this is all in the stark absence of any official studies and any investigations that have been done on their efforts of electronic cigarette brands.
In view of this report and the ever-increasing numbers of users and sales of the electronic cigarette, it must be noted that there was a distinct absence of the amount of those who quit but had become full smokeless cigarette users. This would be able to give us full view into the factors apart from the ad campaign that had really resulted in this successful attempt to ease people from smoking tobacco products.
