E-Cigarettes Might (Eventually) Help Smokers Quit

Chicago Booth Review, 3.19.18

Can electronic cigarettes help smokers quit? Research is mixed, complicated by the fact that researchers have largely ignored a possible cause-and-effect relationship between e-cigarette and cigarette smoking. But taking causality into account, e-cig use increases the probability that a smoker will try to quit, and e-cigs may help people quit over time, according to National Bureau of Economic Research’s Henry Saffer, Bentley University’s Dhaval Dave, The Graduate Center, City University of New York’s Michael Grossman, and Ph.D. candidate Daniel Dench.
