After completing a 26-month study of 15,943 adult smokers, the CDC has reported that one of the most effective ways of quitting smoking tended to involve multiple methods.  The most common options were giving up cigarettes all at once and reducing their number. For smokers who chose smoking cessation devices, they opted for e-cigarettes most often (35.3 percent) than a nicotine patch or gum (25.4 percent), or any other FDA-approved alternative.
