|Thomas Glynn, American Cancer Society director of cancer science and trends, says people are very curious about high-tech devices, but he’s concerned that there is no data yet to back up their use.
“I don’t see anything in that I’d say is a magic bullet,” he says. “Unfortunately, one real challenge we have in helping people to stop is getting them to accept that quitting is hard work.”
There’s also a risk, Glynn says, that people will try high-tech methods and, if they don’t work, “might throw their hands up and say, ‘I can’t stop.’ And we’ll lose an opportunity for someone who can quit.”
Glen Morgan, a clinical psychologist and program director at the Tobacco Control Research Branch of the National Cancer Institute, concurs.
“If I’m not familiar with a product or heard of studies supporting its use, I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody any more than, say, chewing peach pits if you have cancer,” he says.
But Morgan adds that the “John Wayne approach” to quitting—using will power alone—doesn’t work. “If you stop and think about anything you’ve ever accomplished, will power just wasn’t enough,” he says. “You need to have a plan and practice and try and be prepared and know that it’s not going to be an easy course and you’re going to slip.”
