Young People Should Know the Truth: Electronic Cigarette Help People Quit Smoking

2014-7-30

 
Despite so many anti-smoking voices and activities is becoming increasingly fierce, MJTech tell young people a truth that electronic cigarette help people quit smoking. Because a lot anti-smoking voice insists that old saying” How about the children”, today we will prove the truth to the young people: electronic cigarettes do help people quit smoking.

Elected officials and anti-smoking advocates need to re-think their knee-jerk reaction and hostility to e-cigarettes and vaping. It seems like every day we hear a new attack - yet these products are actually helping some people quit or cut back on the much more dangerous alternative of smoking tobacco. In May, a large study out of England that was published in the journal Addiction made worldwide news when they announced that smokers trying to quit were 60 percent more likely to succeed if they used electronic cigarettes than over-the-counter therapies such as nicotine patches or gum.

Young people are not stupid. They can handle the truth. In fact, it was honest anti-smoking campaigns that have led to big drops in smoking rates. We need to continue with honest education about vaping and e-cigs. We rightly tell young people that smoking tobacco is a leading cause of premature death, and we tell them how incredibly addictive nicotine can be and that it is one of the hardest things in the world to quit.

We should also tell them that while we need more research, dozens of health experts sent a letter to the World Health Organization urging them to embrace e-cigarettes as a life-saving intervention, saying that e-cigarettes "could be among the most significant health innovations of the 21st century, perhaps saving hundreds of millions of lives." We should explain to them that millions of people are deciding to improve their health with the much safer practice of vaping instead of smoking tobacco. This type of honesty and context is the right "message" for young people.

MJTech will continue to renew the good news to you.
