A study conducted by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, the US department that deals with analysing and preventing citizens from disease, disability and injury, shows that currently, one of the most effective hypotheses for quitting smoking is to use an Electronic device.

This hypothesis is also supported by RTI International (Research Triangle Institute) and the University of North Carolina, according to which the many methods of smoking cessation promoted by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) have not proved effective when Vaping.

On the market you can find a variety of products to try to quit smoking, such as patches, chewing gum, even telephone assistance through the support of experts, but recent studies show that these methods have failed to demonstrate sufficient help for  those who really want to stop smoking.
 
Vaping compared to the aforementioned cases could be an effective sedative, starting with thanks to the tools and eliquids on the market such as CBD-based eliquids that tend to create a feeling of 'relaxation' in the smoker.
 
However, the US government has raised doubts about the health risks that could be linked to the use of the Ecigs – to which the British authority responded, with support from the UK Royal College of Physicians, that the health risks associated with electronic cigarettes will still be lower than the health risks of traditional smoking.
 
Kevin Fenton, National Director of the PHE Health and Welfare Department said: "Now the evidence is tangible: electronic cigarettes are less dangerous than tobacco for health and are a valuable tool for quitting smoking".
