A recent small study revealed that e-cigarettes might not help smokers quit or reduce smoking.
The study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine looked at self-reports from 949 smokers, 88 who used e-cigarettes at the beginning of the study, to determine whether e-cigarettes was linked to successfully quitting regular cigarettes or lessening consumption at the end of a year.
