The purpose of this study was to examine what factors determine the mortality experience of male ex-cigarette smokers, those who no longer smoke at all and those who changed to pipe or cigar smoking.
A cohort study was undertaken with 18-year mortality data on 19018 men.
Ex-cigarette smokers had an intermediate mortality risk compared with never and current smokers.
Ex-cigarette smokers who switched to pipe smoking had higher mortality than those who no longer smoked at all.
The mortality rates for pipe and cigar smokers who were former cigarette smokers were higher than those for pipe or cigar smokers who had never smoked cigarettes.
