The American Journal of Epidemiology reports that it has been found that vaping to increase the odds of successfully quitting cigarette smoking by another study.
Even though the abstract claims that the evidence is “limited”, it also presents that vaping is the most popular strategy for smoking cessation, beating pharmaceutical aids by a wide margin (25.2 percent.)

Frankly, smokers who switch to vaping continue to vape, it would mean that “they continue to use tobacco products.” in the eyes of the study’s authors.
Regardless, vapor products are consistently reliable as a means of doing so. And successfully quitting cigarette smoking is the objective of smoking cessation. This study adds to the body of proof that that is the case.
