Electronic cigarette use is driving a rise in the proportion of young people who try but fail to quit using nicotine, a new study indicates.

The percentage of adolescents who reported at least one unsuccessful attempt at quitting either electronic or combustible cigarettes was 5.74% in 2020, according to the study published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. When compared with the past prevalence of adolescents who’d tried to quit using traditional cigarettes, that marks the highest prevalence of failed attempts in more than a decade, or since 2006.
