Are teen e-cigarette users more likely to smoke in the future?

However, this study was the first to directly compare these products, as well as compare use of a single product to polyuse of noncigarette products.

King also recommends smokers trying to quit ask their doctor about specific tools that could help, such as nicotine-replacement therapy, classes created to help you stop smoking, counseling and medication; avoid substances such as alcohol that tend to weaken commitment; replace tobacco with healthier oral stimulation like gum; and exercise to provide a boost and help prevent weight gain that can happen when smokers eat when they feel the urge to light up.

Among youth in the study who had tried more than one product at the start, 74 percent has used e-cigarettes and 65 percent had used a hookah.

Teenagers who have used non-cigarette tobacco products are twice as likely to try conventional cigarettes within a year as those who have not, a new study finds.

About 90 percent of adult smokers first tried cigarettes by the time they turned 18, according to the study. The odds of past 30-day cigarette use at follow-up were about two-fold higher for ever users of e-cigarettes, hookah, non-cigarette combustible tobacco, and smokeless tobacco (odds ratios, 1.87, 1.92, 1.78, and 2.07), after adjustment for confounding factors.

Non-cigarette tobacco use is associated with subsequent cigarette smoking among US adolescents, according to a study published online January 2 in JAMA Pediatrics. Results showed that odds of cigarette use approximately doubled for those who ever used e-cigarettes, hookah, noncigarette combustible tobacco, and smokeless tobacco.

In-Depth [cohort study]: This study used a sample of 10,384 never-cigarette-smoking youths of ages 12 to 17 years from the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study to determine the association between noncigarette tobacco product use and later cigarette smoking. "And even if kids use these products and don't convert to cigarette smoking, it's not the only relevant health concern".

"In policy terms, the findings provide a rationale to treat alternative cigarette products as a group and potentially extend policies that work for one product to others (such as a ban on flavorings)", they wrote. "The estimated health risks of non-cigarette tobacco products should include the addition health consequences of future cigarette use". "Regulation of these non-cigarette products should reflect the fact that all of them are associated with greater risk of youth smoking", he said. That's important because cigarette smoking rates have gone down in teens, which could be seen as a win by health advocates.

"I'm perhaps surprised about how similar the relationships were for each product across the board", Watkins said.

A new law to control smoking and the sale of tobacco has entered into force in Macao since Monday, the special administrative region's Health Service Bureau said. It is also prohibited to sell tobacco products in casinos.
