Vaping Fast Facts
More than 16% of American 12th graders have used e-cigarettes in the past month. More than 4% of 8th graders have done so. Overall, more than 1 in 4 American high school students report having used an e-cigarette in the past month.
A national survey found a 78% increase in vaping among high school students between 2017 and 2018. Among middle school students, e-cigarette usage increased by 48% in the same one-year period. An estimated 3.05 million high schoolers and 570,000 middle schoolers vape.
The vapor produced by almost all e-cigarettes contains nicotine, a highly addictive and harmful substance. Nicotine is especially harmful to young people, whose brain development is hindered by the chemical.
Almost a third of teenagers who vape start smoking within six months. That’s more than three times the rate among teens who don’t vape. E-cigarette vapor often contains other harmful chemicals and substances that can cause both short-term and long-term health problems.

Vaping Caregiver Tips
If your child or loved one is addicted to vaping, there are ways that you can help them to quit.
- Help with education. A vaper has to want to quit, and misinformation about vaping can stand in the way of the desire to stop. Many young people don’t understand the dangers of vaping, and many don’t even know that the vaping liquid they use contains nicotine. When they understand the truth, they’re more likely to want to quit.
