Is vaping a gateway to hook new smokers on nicotine?

Answer

No. While there have been some hysterical claims that vaping is a way to hook new smokers or kids on nicotine, the research suggests otherwise.

A study released this year in the journal, Internal and Emergency Medicine, found “e-cigarette use by never smokers is rare and none of them subsequently initiate smoking.”

In reality, the opposite is true. Vaping is a gateway to help current smokers quit nicotine altogether.
