Some of the most common reasons youth experiment with, or use a vaping device include:

  • curiosity
  • peer pressure (direct or implied)
  • boredom
  • it’s become a normalized behavior (e.g., seeing friends and family using it makes it seem acceptable and normal, as well as social media influencers, ads on billboards and in magazines)
  • addiction, they like the “hit” they get from nicotine
  • appealing flavors (e.g. fruit, candy, dessert)
  • devices are seen as trendy, or a status symbol
  • they consider vaping “harmless” and “safer than smoking” in order to quit or cut down on smoking
