Quitting and Switching: Menthol Smokers’ Responses to a Menthol Ban.
Tobacco Regulatory Science, Volume 1, Number 1, March 2015, pp. 54-60(7)
This research examined e-cigarette use among menthol smokers and the role of e- cigarettes in response to a proposed ban on menthol cigarettes. Methods: Data were obtained from the 2014 Minnesota Adult Tobacco Survey. Results: Among Minnesota adult smokers, 25% use menthol cigarettes. Approximately half reported they would quit smoking if menthol cigarettes were banned; 12.3% reported they would switch to menthol e-cigarettes. Almost 75% of menthol smokers have tried e-cigarettes; 58% of whom used them to try to quit cigarettes. Conclusions: Nearly half of menthol smokers are ready to quit, and report that a ban would provide additional momentum for quitting. Many are already using e-cigarettes as cessation aids, despite a lack of evidence regarding efficacy.
