Electronic cigarettes significantly help to quit and reduce the smoking of traditional cigarettes – according to research by the Polish Association eSmoking Association. 53% respondents declared that they completely quit smoking, and about 80 percent users who still smoke (so-called dual users) reduced the number of cigarettes smoked by as much as 13 pieces per day.

The eSmoking Association has conducted two studies: computer-aided telephone interview (CATI) conducted on a representative group of 3,000 people aged 18 to 65, as well as in-depth surveys (CAWI) among current users of electronic cigarettes.

According to research, more than half of e-cigarette users have managed to completely give up smoking traditional cigarettes. Over 80% clearly reduced the number of conventional cigarettes smoked on average by as much as 74%: from 17 to 4 per day.

– For a person addicted to tobacco, each smoked cigarette less is a huge success – says Estera J├│zefowicz from the eSmoking Association. Looking for less harmful alternatives, smokers can realistically reduce the negative consequences of smoking, but it is worth striving to completely quit smoking – he adds: vawoo.co.uk

There is about 6,000 chemical compounds in tobacco smoke, of which several dozen are strong carcinogens responsible for the development of cancers characteristic for smokers: lung cancer, larynx cancer and oral cavity cancer. The e-cigarette aerosol does not contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heavy metals, lead, and above all carcinogenic cadmium.

It is estimated that around 1.4 million people use electronic cigarettes in Poland. Although the number of smokers of traditional tobacco products is steadily decreasing, about 8 million Poles reach traditional cigarettes. This is one of the worst results in Europe.
