For many smokers, smoking is an approach to an all new trend. Undeterred by the warnings given by doctors about the ill-effects of smoking, people persist in smoking. Once addicted, some rarely can quit while many can’t. Some even feel frustrated searching “How to Quit Smoking?” on the internet and after following all the strenuous steps, then finally give up (those steps).

A new study finds that one of the easiest way to quit smoking is by using E-Cigarette. Also, it has already been reported that one-third of smokers looking to quit smoking commonly use E-Cigarette.

E-Cigarette stands for Electronic Cigarette, it is also known as personal vaporizer or PV. It is a battery-powered electronic inhaler that delivers vaporized nicotine that doesn’t contain tobacco, but simulates the aroma of tobacco.

According to the statistical report issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – About one in five adult cigarette smokers had used electronic cigarettes by 2011, up from about one in 10 in 2010. Which means the use of the devices is seemingly growing.

Dr. Michael Siegel, a professor of community health sciences at the Boston University School of Public Health says that levels of chemicals detected in e-cigarettes’ vapor are 1,000 times lower than in tobacco smoke. However, electronic cigarette are no longer marketed as smoking cessation aids in most countries due to uncertainty among  the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) and many other health organisations about the benefits and risks of using electronic cigarettes.

The FDA should regulate e-cigarettes to ensure standard quality controls, Siegel said.
