60% of e-cigarette users say they want to quit – but only a quarter have tried, the study finds

Most people who want to give up e-cigarettes vapes reveal new research.

About 10 million American adults – plus about 3.6 million teenagers – use e-cigarettes, which are meant to help adult smokers quit, but can cheat themselves.

And most people who use e-cigarettes do not make a complete switch, but use both traditional and electronic cigarettes instead.

But more than 60 percent would like to deposit both products for good, according to new Rutgers University research.

Vaping has become hugely popular in recent years, but 60 percent of adult users now want to stop using nicotine delivery devices, according to new Rutgers University study (file)

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a target in the back of the e-cigarette industry, as more and more teenagers become addicted to vape and, especially, & # 39; Juuling & # 39 ;.

But that has not stopped, more and more children of middle and high school age and adults who take e-cigarettes.

It took a while for the devices to connect. The first e-cigarette was invented in China in 2003, but the devices would not become mainstream for more than a decade.

However, since they have become their own cultural meme, triple among high and high school students.

Usage rates among adults have doubled since 2012.

Although e-cigarettes are meant to help people quit smoking, they are more often used alongside flammable tobacco.

& # 39; The majority of the discussion about e-cigarettes has focused on the relative damage compared to traditional cigarettes, the effectiveness of e-cigarettes as a stopper and the alarming increase in their use in children & # 39; of the new Rutgers is studying there, Marc Steinberg, an associate professor of psychiatry there.

In 2015, however, nearly 60 percent of adults who used e-cigarettes smoked.

And a small percentage of people who had never smoked – as well as a larger proportion of teenagers and young adults – only took devices such as the Juul.

E-cigarettes cannot have the same devastating risk for cancer as flammable cousins ​​(although it is too early to say the research so convincingly), because they do not burn & # 39; heat & # 39; and none of the most toxic chemicals from cigarettes.

But they share one important ingredient: nicotine, which does not directly cause cancer, but it certainly causes addiction.

Most e-cigarettes even contain more nicotine than flammable cigarettes.

For example, one Juul pod contains approximately as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes.

According to Juul that is about 200 puffs, equal to the bottom of the number of traits an average smoker would get through a flammable cigarette.

However, op Reddit forums, many users claim to use a pod a day, but some say a pod lasts for weeks or months.

Even the lower nicotine Juul pods – which contain three percent nicotine, as opposed to the original five percent pods – still take a bigger blow than a flammable cigarette.

That powerful hit of nicotine in every Juul pull makes it all the more difficult to stop, even if the user wants it.

It means that, as with traditional cigarettes, the number of people who want to quit is out of proportion to the number of people who do do stop at some point.

From 2016, around 70 percent of smokers said they wanted to quit. More than 50 percent attempted to quit in 2015 – but less than eight percent stopped successfully, according to the Truth Initiative.

It is disturbing that the numbers are very similar for the use of e-cigarettes.

According to the latest Rutgers survey, 60 percent of the 10 million American e-cigarette users want to quit.

More than a quarter of the 1,771 people who had surveyed the Rutgers researchers had attempted to give up sheep during the past year, and 16 percent had a & # 39; plan & # 39; to stop in the coming month.

It is not clear how many e-cig users have successfully stopped.

The FDA has advocated methods, drugs, and programs to help teen and adult vapers leave the devices.

& # 39; The strategies people used to quit e-cigarettes include many of the strategies we recommend for quitting traditional cigarettes such as FDA approved nicotine replacement products or medicines, counseling and social support, & # 39; said study author Rachel Rosen, a graduate student in the psychology department.
