I used electronic cigarettes to help me quit smoking almost two years ago, and I haven’t had one cigarette since then. Although electronic cigarettes aren’t an official smoking cessation device approved by the FDA, I have high hopes that they will be approved one day.
According to new research, helping smokers to quit is just one of the benefits of e-smokes.
For smokers trying to quit without using a nicotine substitute, their memory decreases while their bodies adjust to the lower levels of nicotine.
As claimed by Dr. Lynne Dawkins from the University of East London, a study done on 85 smokers showed that not only did the electronic cigarette reduce the cravings of the smokers, but it also increased their mood and improved their memory.
You can use any nicotine substitute to boost mood and memory when you’re trying to quit, but nothing can replicate the feeling of actually smoking the way an electronic cigarette can.
