Teenagers who use e-cigarettes 'more likely to smoke tobacco'

5 Smart Ways To Try If You Want To Quit Smoking

The increase in the smoking quit came from those who tried the new e-cigarettes.

"Since heavy smokers smoke more cigarettes per day initially, they may feel the impact of a price increase to a greater degree and be more likely to cut back on the number of cigarettes they smoke on a daily basis", Mayne said.

According to researchers, the probability of quitting cigarettes was three times higher among daily e-cigarette users compared to those who never tried e-cigarettes.

A year later, 34-percent of the e-cigarette users had smoked tobacco compared to only 9 percent of those who had never vaped.

E-cigarette use may be prompting United Kingdom teenagers to start smoking traditional cigarettes, according to the results of the first study of its kind.

Do e-cigarettes help smokers quit or glorify a potentially unhealthy habit?

Starting smoking is significantly more likely among adolescents whose family and friends indulge in the habit, and less common in those who have a negative attitude towards cigarettes. Although more research is likely necessary to see why that is and whether it's true - Mayne will soon publish a study devoted to that - one possible explanation is that the economic pressures of a cigarette price increase provide a stronger incentive to quit than placing limits on smoking in public places.

Equity attributable to shareholders of the parent company amounted to 425.9 million yuan, up 11 per cent from the beginning of the year.

But the findings conflict with other research and smoking trends, which show cigarette use falling. "A complete ban will prevent youth from getting into the grip of this addiction", said an official from the Tamil Nadu People's Forum for Tobacco Control. But the studies suggesting that experimentation with e-cigarettes may act as a gateway to smoking in adolescents have been carried out in the US.

Experts looked at survey responses from 2,836 pupils from 20 schools in England at age 13 and 14, and again a year later.

Most importantly, the percentage of high school students using e-cigarettes has also dropped. "I think the assumption in adolescents has been that people who are already smoking cigarettes are also trying e-cigarettes".

Other study limitations cited by the researchers included incomplete data on whether the former smokers used other forms of nicotine replacement or pharmacotherapy to help them quit. Little did he know that his dependency on e-cigarettes would lead to throat infections and bleeding gums.

However, they added: "While acknowledging that a causal relationship may be plausible, we can not confirm this, based on our findings and the trends observed over the same period in the UK".

"We need to be cautious in making policy recommendations based on our findings".
