Resource Notes:

Conclusions: In conclusion, in this work the use of e-cigarettes among young adults was shown to result in higher nicotine dependence levels than nicotine dependence related to tobacco cigarette use. In addition, a stronger dependence on the e-cigarette compared to the traditional cigarette identified in dual users indicates that e-cigarettes may be highly addictive. Further research is necessary to provide evidence on the role of e-cigarettes in smoking cessation, especially in young adults. Social normalization of smoking behaviors by allowing e-cigarette use should be monitored.
