Everyone knows that cigarettes are bad for the human body and are a direct cause of millions of deaths around the world each year. It’s no secret that smoking cause’s cancer, heart disease, increases your risk of stroke and contributes too many other health issues and complaints.
Quitting smoking is the obvious answer to help prevent all of these problems but the addictive nature of cigarettes makes it extremely difficult. It’s common knowledge that when you do quit you’ll see and feel health benefits, but what isn’t commonly known is how quickly some of these health improvements can take place.
There are whole industries centered around helping people quit smoking, with nicotine gums and patches being two of the most common. These treatments however have varying levels of effectiveness with many people relapsing back into smoking. The emergence of e-cigarettes over the last decade has seen a new and potentially game changing method of supporting smokers who wish to quit. Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking traditional cigarettes and the NHS in the UK have found that 3 out of 5 people who quit using e-cigarettes as part of a supported program are successful.
