Hypnotherapy more efficient than e-cigarettes
Addiction is NOT treated by transposing patients to other, equally addictive, substances.
Addictive chemicals, by definition, inherently induce ever increasing dosing and abuse.
A recent systematic review and meta-analysis has proved that e-cigarettes are associated with significantly less quitting among smokers. 
Abrupt quitting works better than gradual reduction of cigarettes. 
Abrupt quitting smoking cessation is achieved by the second most common, and most effective non pharmacological treatment method used worldwide, clinical hypnotherapy. 
Even a single hypnotherapeutic session proved more effective than long term nicotine replacement therapy. 
Long term smoking abstinence after completed hypnosis therapeutic sessions is well documented.
