HOUSTON, Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Many people will make the New Year's resolution to quit smoking, but according to American Cancer Society research, few will achieve their goal:
- Percentage of smokers who want to quit altogether: 70 percent
- Percentage of smokers who will try to quit this year: 40 percent
- Percentage of smokers who will succeed at quitting smoking on their first try: 7 percent
While the odds may not seem to be in their favor, people who want to quit smoking have the option of turning to smoking cessation aids to increase their chances for success. While nicotine patches have been used by many, electronic cigarettes continue to grow in popularity. The electronic devices look like traditional cigarettes, but actually warm liquid cartridges that create a vapor containing varying levels of nicotine—but none of the harmful ingredients found in tobacco-based products.
According to Mark Wunder, CEO of CigReviews.com, a leading website for e-cigarette reviews and coupons, the decision to turn to e-cigs for smoking cessation is becoming more common.
"I've had many people tell me that they want to stop smoking or avoid the dangerous chemicals in traditional cigarettes," Wunder says. "Reviewers on our site consistently praise the various brands of electronic cigarettes for helping them break even decades-long habits."
According to a recent Reuters report, a study by researchers in Switzerland found that "electronic cigarette users followed over a year reduced or quit using tobacco cigarettes in large numbers and were less prone to resume smoking, at least in the short term."
Encouraging results, says Wunder, who points to the benefits of researching which brand of e-cigarette to choose to reach smoking cessation goals. CigReviews.com includes unsolicited reviews from actual electronic cigarette users, as well unbiased video assessments of the various brands featured, including V2, Blu and EverSmoke.
"In addition to helpful reviews, CigReviews.com also provides money-saving coupons to e-cig users," he says. "Our goal is to not only help people make the best choice, but also to pass along the available savings by ordering online."
CigReviews.com is a leading website for reviews and discounts for cigarettes, electronic cigarettes and roll your own tobacco. The site, which provides access to reviews for more than 900 brands, strives to create community among smokers and provide an outlet for opinions about any topic that relates to smoking.
