In helping smokers quit, cash is king, e-cigarettes strike out

Over 6000 people participated in the huge trial from whom 1191 were involved actively with the program assigned them to follow individually.

The best rates were among participants offered both free cessation aids and a monetary reward of up to $600 at the 6-month benchmark. "Taken together, these studies suggest CBD could play a key role in helping people to give up smoking", said Professor Yasmin Hurd, director of the Addiction Institute at the Mount Sinai hospital network in NY.

Like other parts of the globe, World No-Tobacco Day will be marked on May 31 across the world including Pakistan which will focus on informing people about health problems associated with tobacco use and to draw attention to the health problems that tobacco use can cause. However, if you're trying to quit and don't know where to start, researchers made a decision to give you a helping hand. This way, they selected five methods of smoking cessation and started testing them.

He also agreed with Abrams that the study wasn't created to assess whether vaping is an effective smoking cessation technique.

An FDA spokesman said the agency was pondering the results, but that this is not the type of study needed to evaluate safety and effectiveness of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation.

According to a new study, if the smokers are provided with free electronic cigarettes to help them kick the habit, the efforts may be in vain. There is still one thing you need to keep in mind. In fact, as other studies have shown, they may be doing more harm than good by introducing teens who have never smoked to cigarettes.

The new study differed from usual studies of smokers wanting to quit: It automatically enrolled smokers in 54 company wellness programs and asked those who didn't want to join to opt out. Those active participants showing real interest during the trial were reported to be more inspired of quitting smoking. In the free nicotine replacement therapy group, only 0.5 percent did, while 1 percent who got free e-cigarettes did so. This included free nicotine patches, free anti-smoking medications, free e-cigarettes, motivational texts. Several large corporations are also interested in helping their employees quit because smoking employees are more expensive than non-smoking ones.

On the other hand, the remaining two groups were given all that stuff plus $600 free money.

The study was quite tough, since they took blood and urine samples from the participants even after six months. This was done either by inhalation or by injecting them with a solution bubbled with smoke.

"Smoking remains the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States, and almost all large employers offer wellness programs aimed at getting people to quit", Scott D. Halpern quoted in a statement.
