    Quote from article:

    "The American people spend $1.5 billion dollars every year on smoking cessation devices. That's a huge market for a product that's supposed to work the first time. A forthcoming study suggests that, in the real world, the patch is no "magic bullet." The 787-person study is set for online publication Monday in the online journal Tobacco Control and followed adults who had quit smoking within the previous two years. It found that in 1/3 of the cases, the person started smoking again. Of that 30 percent, researchers found no difference in the relapse rate between people who used cessesion aides and those who did not."

    Most effective cessation device was my inhaler. Only time I quit for a long time. And still relapsed. I've tried it all and for me, vaping has been the most effective. It simulates everything I like about smoking without the parts that are nasty to me.

    I think vaping is by far the best for me. Sure makes it really easy. I have gone back to analogs a couple of times, just because my previous ecigs were garbage. But now that I've got my eGo-t I won't be having any more analogs (I hope).

    This is exactly why there is such a big push to kill e cigs around the world because they work.

    This should be the focus of a pro ecig campaign....

    From someone sitting here smoking an analog and fussing that I'm out of French vanilla and would rather vape, I say bullshavic!!! I went from 2 packs a day to not even wanting analogs in 6 weeks without trying? I didn't even want to quit until I found vaping tastes better! Forget the money and health, I can vape pie without the calories! Now there's a selling point!!!!

    Notice that many, if not most of these 'studies' never include e-cigs.

    And some of the ones coming out about e-cigs are just plain lies.

    Of all the things I've tried, (patches, gum, pills,) non seemed to satisfy me. There's just so many other psychological things going on with 'smoking' a cigarette that these don't simulate. E-cigs are the first thing I've used that comes close to filling in many of these and the first time in my life that I think I can really quit.

    Been at this for over a month (2 actually, but the first was using both e-cigs and analogs) and I may have cravings but nothing that's gotten me to run out in the middle of the night to get a pack.
