Teens Who Vape are More Likely to Smoke Tobacco

Video Description

"A new study shows that teenagers who use e-cigarettes, a practice called vaping, have a higher probability of using combustible tobacco products than teens who have used neither. E-cigarettes have grown in popularity as an alternative to smoking cigarettes because they are thought to be less detrimental to health than traditional cigarettes or other products that involve lighting tobacco on fire. E-cigarette is a catch-all term for the multitude of devices used for vaping flavored nicotine liquids. Dr. Nora D. Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, said in a press release, ""While teen tobacco use has fallen in recent years, this study confirms that we should continue to vigilantly watch teen smoking patterns. Parents and teens should recognize that although e-cigarettes might not have the same carcinogenic effects of regular cigarettes, they do carry a risk of addiction.""

"Things might be very different today, had I not begun smoking as a teen. I feel that I became a nearly hopeless nicotine addict in a very short time."
