Addiction levels down in smokers who switch to electronic cigarettes

| April 11, 2014

A new study has provided evidence that nicotine addiction levels are decreased in smokers who have switched to electronic cigarettes, according to Dr. Michael Siegel writing on his blog, The Rest of the Story: Tobacco Analysis and Commentary.

Siegel, who is a professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences, Boston University School of Public Health, said that many anti-smoking groups and advocates had been opposing electronic cigarettes on the grounds that these products perpetuated or even increased nicotine addiction.

‘But a new study presented at the 2014 annual conference of the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) provides evidence that nicotine addiction levels are actually decreased, not increased, in smokers who have switched to electronic cigarettes,’ he said.
