More than 1 in 3 Greater Cincinnati adults (34%) use some type of tobacco product, according to the Greater Cincinnati Adult Tobacco Survey. Cigarette use is most common, but new products such as electonic cigarettes have emerged. In recent years, the use of e-cigarettes and vaping products has increased dramatically among youth and young adults. More than 5 million middle and high school students in the U.S. report that they currently use e-cigarettes, according to the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey.
In Greater Cincinnati, almost 4 in 10 adults ages 18 to 29 report that they are current e-cigarette users. Vaping devices resemble many everyday products. No matter what they look like all contain harmful chemicals, nicotine and are marketed to youth. Nicotine is an addictive stimulant that makes the heart work harder. Most vape devices popular with teens have very high doses of nicotine that can lead to irritability, anxiety and mood swings.
