INTRODUCTION Little is known about the prevalence of electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) use among tobacco users who seek help from state tobacco quitlines, the reasons for its use, and whether e-cigarettes impact a user's ability to successfully quit tobacco. This study investigates these questions and describes differences among state quitline callers who used e-cigarettes for 1 month or more, used e-cigarettes for less than 1 month, or never tried e-cigarettes. METHODS Data on e-cigarette… 
Electronic cigarette use and tobacco cessation in a state-based quitline
E-cigarette use was not associated with tobacco cessation, suggesting that e-cigarettes use may neither facilitate nor deter tobacco cessation among quitline callers, and future research should continue exploring how e- cigarette use affects quitting.
A longitudinal analysis of electronic cigarette use and smoking cessation.
A longitudinal analysis of a national sample of current US smokers to determine whether e-cigarettes use predicted successful quitting, or reduced cigarette consumption, found that e-cigarette users were less likely to have quit at 7 months than non-users.
A Descriptive Report of Electronic Cigarette Use After Participation in a Community-Based Tobacco Cessation Trial
Among adult Appalachian smokers enrolled in community-based tobacco cessation treatment, use of e-cigarettes post-treatment was associated with lower abstinence rates at 12 months, as compared to nonuse.
Reasons for Starting and Stopping Electronic Cigarette Use
There are two categories of e-cigarette users: those who try for goal-oriented reasons and typically continue using and those whotry for non-goal-oriented Reasons and then typically stop using, according to a national sample of U.S. adults.
Dual use of smokeless tobacco or e-cigarettes with cigarettes and cessation.
Dual users are more likely than cigarette-only users to endorse certain cessation-related attitudes and behaviors that may provide an opportunity for clinicians or others to discuss evidence-based strategies for smoking cessation.
Tobacco Use, Quitting Behavior, and Health Characteristics Among Current Electronic Cigarette Users in a National Tri-Ethnic Adult Stable Smoker Sample.
It is suggested that stable smokers who currently use ECs possess characteristics that are associated with difficulty in achieving smoking cessation and should be considered when examining the effectiveness of ECs on cessation and in designing future cessation trials using ECs.
E-cigarette use in the past and quitting behavior in the future: a population-based study.
Smokers who have used e-cigarettes may be at increased risk for not being able to quit smoking, and these findings have important policy and regulation implications regarding the use of e-cigarette among smokers.
Electronic cigarette awareness, use history, and expected future use among hospitalized cigarette smokers.
Rates of awareness and use of e-cigarettes may be elevated among hospitalized smokers, with more use reported among those who were White, younger, more educated, in a relationship, and exposed to e-cigarette advertising.


Electronic cigarette: users profile, utilization, satisfaction and perceived efficacy.
E-cigarettes were used much as people would use nicotine replacement medications: by former smokers to avoid relapse or as an aid to cut down or quit smoking, and for quitting and relapse prevention.
Effect of an electronic nicotine delivery device (e-Cigarette) on smoking reduction and cessation: a prospective 6-month pilot study
The use of e-Cigarette substantially decreased cigarette consumption without causing significant side effects in smokers not intending to quit, and perception and acceptance of the product was good.
State Quitlines and Cessation Patterns Among Adults With Selected Chronic Diseases in 15 States, 2005–2008
About one-third of tobacco users who call state quitlines have a Chronic disease, and those who have a chronic disease are less likely to quit using tobacco.
The effectiveness and cost effectiveness of telephone counselling and the nicotine patch in a state tobacco quitline
Offering free NRT and multisession telephone support within a state tobacco quitline led to higher quit rates, and similar costs per incremental quit, than less intensive protocols.
Awareness and ever-use of electronic cigarettes among U.S. adults, 2010-2011.
Awareness and ever-use of e-cigarettes increased among U.S. adults from 2010 to 2011 and was significantly higher among current smokers compared with both former and never-smokers, irrespective of survey method or year.
e-Cigarette awareness, use, and harm perceptions in US adults.
In both surveys, non-Hispanic Whites, current smokers, young adults, and those with at least a high-school diploma were most likely to perceive e-cigarettes as less harmful than regular cigarettes.
Evidence of real-world effectiveness of a telephone quitline for smokers.
A randomized, controlled trial into the ongoing service of the California Smokers' Helpline showed that a telephone counseling protocol for smoking cessation, previously proven efficacious, was effective when translated to a real-world setting.

The learning curve to using e-cigs has important implications for laboratory tests of these devices with novice users and the multiple e-cig options and the use of "mods" create challenges for researchers and policy makers.
Electronic nicotine delivery devices: ineffective nicotine delivery and craving suppression after acute administration
This study examined how two brands of electronic nicotine delivery devices (E-cigarettes) influence plasma nicotine levels, heart rate and cigarette craving in cigarette smokers, and compared these effects to those produced by smokers' usual brand of cigarettes.
Electronic nicotine delivery systems: emerging science foundation for policy
Since they were first marketed in China in 2004, electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) have spread globally like wildfire. Their proponents, who refer to the products as “electronic cigarettes”
