File photo dated 24/10/14 of a man smoking an electronic cigarette as “vaping” can help traditional cigarette smokers kick the habit or at least cut down, a study has found. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Wednesday December 17, 2014. The UK and New Zealand researchers behind the Cochrane Library review say the results are encouraging but that more studies are needed. Electronic cigarettes work by vaporising a solution that usually contains nicotine. The review drew on data from 662 smokers across two randomised trials, and found that about 9% of those who used electronic cigarettes were able to quit smoking by the one-year mark – more than twice the rate of those using nicotine-free placebo devices. Among people who did not quit, 36% of those smoking e-cigarettes cut down on the number of cigarettes they were smoking by half, while 28% of those using the placebo devices were able to halve their cigarette consumption.
