According to the study conducted by Jean-François Etter, professor of public health at the University of Geneva, the e-cigarette reduces the " craving This irresistible urge to smoke is felt by those who stop.
Professor Jean-François Etter relied on the experience of 374 daily e-cigarette users who have stopped smoking for less than two months.
The impulsive desire to smoke is less strong
He concludes that the electronic cigarette effectively reduces craving, or impulsive desire to smoke, especially among the most dependent people.
The higher the nicotine concentration in the e-liquid and the higher the number of puffs, the greater the effect.
The researcher also observes that the benefit is better when the devices are modular and equipped with powerful batteries.
This is a new argument that positions the electronic cigarette as real help with smoking cessation.
« From a public health perspective, there is therefore a compromise to be found between electronic cigarettes that deliver high doses of nicotine, more effective but also more addictive, and those who deliver lower doses, less effective but less addictive. A compromise that must be taken into account when regulating e-cigarettes » Pr Etter analyzes.
