2.Current or recent cigarette smokers are more likely to use e-cigarettes.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the researchers found that current cigarette smokers and those who recently quit smoking were more likely to use e-cigarettes than individuals who quit smoking more than a year ago or adults who had never smoked.

Around 1 in 6 adults who smoke currently use e-cigarettes, and nearly 1 in 4 recent former smokers use e-cigarettes.

In addition, cigarette smokers who have tried to quit in the past year were more likely to use e-cigarettes than those who had not tried to quit.
