Vaping Creates Nicotine Addiction in Children, Increases Risk of Tobacco Use

Published Online: Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019



In this video, filmed at the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) National Conference in New Orleans, Laura Searcy, MN, APRN, PPCNP-BC; board chair of the Cobb Community Alliance to Prevent Substance Abuse past president of NAPNAP, explains how vaping tools can be helpful for smoking cessation, they are also increasing the risk of tobacco use in young adults.


Laura Searcy, MN, APRN, PPCNP-BC: Vaping is always harmful for children in particular, because, they are not smokers or trying to find a harm reduction method. We have driven smoking rates down to 15%. Kids have gotten the message that smoking's nasty, it smells, it's horrible. So what we have with kids, is we have youth initiating nicotine use. There's significant evidence that shows that about half of them are going on to use 2 or more tobacco products, including combustible cigarettes.
