    "Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Daily electronic cigarette use motivates smokers to transition from traditional cigarettes, even if they have no plans to quit the habit, a study published Tuesday by JAMA Network Open found.

    Among 1,600 active smokers who had no intention to quit at the start of the study, 28% who used e-cigarette, or vaping, devices daily stopped smoking traditional cigarettes within 12 months, the data showed.

    Meanwhile, just under 6% of those who did not use e-cigarettes daily quit smoking traditional cigarettes.

    Daily e-cigarette users in the study were eight times more likely to quit smoking traditional cigarettes than non-daily users, according to the researchers........."

    Really? Who'd have thought that?

    Oh wait, I would have. December 2013. I got some vape stuff, hoping it would help me cut back my 40+ a day habit some, but I had no intention to quit. Well cut back I did. Right down to zero. In less than a week.

    Of course we've heard plenty of other stories here of accidental or unintentional quitting.

    Sept. 29th, 2014. I had no intention to quit smoking, or try again, or to start vaping. I was in the smoke shop to get another pack but the line at the register was long so I was just looking at the vape stuff they had on display. The manager/owner came over and told me how they worked and let me sample some different flavors. I decided to buy a starter kit (eGo/CE4) for the heck of it, thinking I would buy a pack later.. That was 7 years and a few months ago. I haven't smoked since then, although I did smoke about 1/2 a cig a month later but decided to keep vaping..
