Re: E-cigarette use and associated changes in population smoking cessation: evidence from US current population surveys

I completely disagree with the very premise of these findings. If people switched from cigarettes to chewing tobacco would we say they've quit? No. Trading one tobacco product for another isn't cessation, anymore than switching from beer to wine is quitting drinking.
