Description: E-cigarettes are less addictive as vapers are not as dependent on their habit as traditional smokers, new research reveals. Vapers typically wait longer to start using their e-cigs after waking up, a study found. They are also less likely to consider themselves addicts or have strong cravings, the research adds. E-cig users also report finding it easier to refrain from their habit when in no-vaping areas, the study found. Study author Professor Guodong Liu from Penn State College of Medicine, said: 'No doubt about it, e-cigarettes are addictive, but not at the same level as traditional cigarettes.'
How the study was carried out
Researchers from Penn State College of Medicine analyzed survey responses from participants in the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study - an ongoing survey of tobacco use among more than 30,000 young people and adults. The scientists focused on the 3,586 participants who were either daily or almost-daily users of electronic or traditional cigarettes. All of the study's participants were considered dependent on their habit due to their regularity of use.
Key findings
Results, published in Preventive Medicine, revealed that e-cigarette users wait longer to start using their product after waking up. Vapers are also less likely to consider themselves addicts, have strong cravings or feel like they really need their product. E-cigarette users also report finding it easier to refrain from using their product in restricted places. Professor Liu said: 'No doubt about it, e-cigarettes are addictive, but not at the same level as traditional cigarettes.' It is unclear why e-cigs are less addictive than traditional cigarettes.
Future research
Follow-up studies will further analyze e-cigarette users' dependency on their habit. Around 80 percent of adult PATH participants also submitted blood and urine samples, which the researchers plan to study to determine if participants' nicotine levels match their self-reported dependence. The researchers also plan to analyze smokers who use both electronic and traditional cigarettes to better understand nicotine dependence. Professor Liu said: 'We suspect that most e-cigarette users are either experimental users or dual users of e-cigarettes and at least one type of traditional tobacco product, like cigarettes. 'We want to learn if dual users' dependence levels differ from each other and also from exclusive e-cigarette or cigarette users.' The same PATH participants will continue to be surveyed to determine if experimental e-cigarette users eventually become traditional smokers. Professor Liu said: 'Adolescents very much by nature want to experiment with everything and anything. We have to know a lot on almost every aspect of this device before we can have a coherent action plan to better manage this new emerging tobacco delivery product.'

Yep, that's totally true - I completely stopped smoking tobacco after I got an electronic cigarette. I also recommend it to you - it's worth it! Here's a good online ecig store http://mygadget.us/, I thought I could share with you!
