However, increased vaping has been accompanied by a decrease in smokers using prescription drugs and behavioral therapies in their quit attempts. The authors noted that the decline does not coincide perfectly with the rise in vaping, assuming that it is responsible for about 80 percent of the decline, so the estimate can be updated to account for this. The use of counseling and medication is the best method to quit as evidenced. With this idea in mind, the number of additional exfumers thanks to vaping is reduced to 16,000.
From 16,000 to 22,000 is too low? The authors noted that the estimated 16,000 to 22,000 is much lower than the estimate of 560,000 ex-smokers in England, and there are a lot of reasons for this. This difference. The figure is only for those who quit in the last year, many of the older, older vapers (who quit smoking over a year) were not included, and about 9 percent of Ex-smokers who recently started vaping not to re-smoke (probably to avoid relapses).
