The Use of Electronic Cigarettes in Saudi Arabia: A Narrative Review

The use of electronic cigarettes (or "e-cigarettes") is spreading throughout the world. Population-level data from a number of countries indicate that e-cigarettes are used more by children and young adults than by the overall population. Although extensive research has been conducted in Western nations to better understand many aspects of e-cigarette usage among children and young adults, Middle Eastern nations have little data on this topic. The use of tobacco is detrimental to the health, finances, and national spirit of Saudi Arabia. More than 7,000 of its citizens die each year from diseases caused by tobacco use.


15.60% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 4.0 million current smokers in Saudi Arabia 24.70% of men are current smokers but only 1.80% of women.
