Abstract

More people are using electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and fewer people are smoking conventional tobacco cigarettes. A wide variety of e-cigarettes are available and there is emerging evidence that they may help with smoking cessation. This evidence-based clinical review summarises the latest evidence regarding use of e-cigarettes as smoking cessation aids. The ongoing debate surrounding the safety and regulation of e-cigarettes is also discussed.
