Research surface: The success rate of e-cigarette smoking cessation is 18%, nearly twice that of nicotine substitutes

According to Vapingpost, a recent study published in “Addiction” aims to determine the effectiveness of nicotine gum in preventing relapse after smoking cessation. Studies have shown that the use of nicotine gum reduces the chance of occurrence by 55% compared to placebo.

The study titled “Secondary Analysis: The Effectiveness of Nicotine Chewing Gum in Preventing Non-Daily Smokers from Facing the Temptation of Smoking” consisted of a randomized clinical trial comparing nicotine gum and placebo to non-daily smoking The impact of quitting smoking.

The trial included a 6-week randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial of nicotine gum, including 255 adult ITS (131 nicotine gum, 124 placebo) seeking quit smoking assistance. The researchers investigated the results of temptation events with or without chewing gum.

Participants reported a total of 2713 seduction events, of which 46.0% (1248) caused smoking (leveling). The compiled data showed that the use of nicotine gum reduced the chance of overlap by 55% compared to the placebo (OR=0.45, 0.22-0.94).

At the same time, a 2019 randomized trial conducted by Queen Mary University in London was supported by the National Institutes of Health, the Health Technology Assessment Program and the UK Cancer Research. The study showed that e-cigarettes are The efficacy is almost twice that of other NRT.

The researchers tracked nearly 900 smokers’ attempts to quit smoking. All adults attending the NHS smoking cessation clinic were randomly divided into two groups. One group received regular nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), such as nicotine gum or patches (including the product mix they wanted), while the other group received e-cigarettes. In addition, these two groups also received behavioral support.

One year later, the participants were evaluated for smoking status, including biochemical tests, to ensure that those who claimed to quit smoking were really effective. Studies have shown that within a year, the withdrawal rate of the NRT group reaches 9.9% a year, which is considered surprisingly high, because previous studies have found that the withdrawal rate of NRT is only 5-7%. However, the success rate of the e-cigarette group is almost twice that of the latter, and the withdrawal rate is 18%.
