While there remains a lot of uncertainty amongst most people when it comes to vaping, every once in awhile a new study comes along to help ease the mind of people wanting to make the switch to vaping.
Recently University College London released their research findings and is claiming that around 18,000 ex-smokers have broken the chains of traditional tobacco and have found new freedom by switching to vaping.
The research findings were published in the British Medical Journal and used data collected from previous studies including and the English National Health Service's stop smoking services and Smoking Toolkit Study. Both services are designed to help people quit smoking traditional cigarettes by offering alternatives such as the patch.
