Current smokers are more likely to report symptoms suggesting a diagnosis of COVID-19.
How and why have young e-cigarette users changed their patterns of use since the COVID-19 pandemic began?
Adolescent boys who use electronic cigarettes have an increased risk for subsequently initiating traditional tobacco products.
Use of e-cigarettes increased among adolescents between 2011 and 2019. However, whether these changes are affecting patterns of use of other tobacco products, especially cigarettes, remains unclear.
Electronic cigarettes as consumer products are not associated with smoking cessation in observational studies.
With the increase of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) use among adults aged 18 to 24 years, this study looked at the role of ENDS use with changes in smoking patterns among this age group.
It is unclear whether the addition of nicotine electronic cigarettes to counseling leads to higher rates of smoking cessation than counseling alone among adults motivated to quit.
Given the increase in recent years of e-cigarette use, researchers looked at whether this use is associated with sleep deprivation in a sample of young adults.
The most notable increase in e-cigarette use from 2014 to 2018 occurred among younger-adult never smokers and near-term quitters (those who quit combustible cigarettes one to eight years before).
Nicotine electronic cigarettes improve long-term smoking cessation compared with nicotine replacement therapy.
