Presenting findings from a study of almost 6,000 smokers over five years, the researchers said the results suggested e-cigarettes could play an important role in reducing smoking rates and hence cutting tobacco-related deaths and illnesses.Mainly funded by the charity Cancer Research U.K. and published in the journal Addiction, West's study surveyed 5,863 smokers between 2009 and 2014 who had tried to quit without using prescription medicines or professional help.The results were adjusted for a range of factors that might influence success at quitting, West said – including age, nicotine dependence, previous attempts to give up smoking and whether quitting was gradual or abrupt.They showed that 20 percent of people trying to quit with the aid of e-cigarettes reported having stopped smoking conventional cigarettes.
