The researchers also say that adolescents who started with e-cigs were actually less likely to quit smoking. It seems counterintuitive that people would replace a safer delivery system with a more dangerous one but it could be that people who are inclined to nicotine addiction are more likely to use both products, but the researchers refer to the e-cigs as a “gateway” to tobacco. They also note that the use of e-cigs has doubled among middle schoolers, although still at a low level, going from 3.1% to 6.5%.
