ABOUT 44.5% OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO VAPE SAY THEY’RE CONSIDERING QUITTING AND ALMOST A QUARTER HAVE TRIED
(CNN) – Nearly half of teens who vape say they want to quit.
That’s the latest from a study published in Jama Pediatrics on Monday.
The study used data from nearly 500 kids between the ages of 12 and 17 who said they vaped at least once over the course of a month.
About 44.5% of them said they wanted to quit and almost a quarter have tried quitting.
Researchers say their study shows health experts can’t just focus on keeping kids from vaping.
They also need to find way to help kids quit once they’ve started.
