E-Cigarettes or Nicotine Patches

A recent article touches on the controversial topic of whether E-Cigarettes can actually be used as a Nicotine patch substitute. The article published by International Business Times argues that a new study has found E-Cigarettes to be As Effective As Nicotine Patches In Helping Smokers Quit. The following paragraph is a great preview of the article:

E-cigarettes were just about as effective as nicotine patches in helping smokers quit in the first trial to compare the two products, though scientists caution that more research is needed to study the long-term effects of such products.

The article continues to explain that 657 adult smokers participated in the study. All participants were looking to quit smoking. Starting one week before their designated quit day to 12 weeks after, the study participants were given one of the following: e-cigarettes, nicotine patches, or a placebo e-cigarette with no nicotine.
In conclusion the study found that the largest group of participants that successfully abstained from conventional tobacco products at the end of the study were part of the e-cigarette group.
