Low-Nicotine Cigarettes Don’t Help Smokers Quit In The Long-Term

By Dr Deepu
HealthDay (7/25, Preidt) reported that a new study by researchers at the University of California San Francisco found that “low-nicotine cigarettes alone don’t help smokers quit over the long term.” The study “included 135 smokers who had no immediate plans to quit,” 80 of which were given “cigarettes with progressively lower levels of nicotine, eventually reaching just 5 percent of the level used in regular cigarettes,” while the rest continued to use their regular cigarettes. Researchers concluded that “while smokers who used low-nicotine cigarettes lowered their nicotine intake, they were unable to reduce their smoking in the long term.”
