In general an electronic cigarette is a battery powered device which delivers nicotine. It typically contains water, nicotine and propylene glycol [which is used to help vaporise the liquid nicotine]. It is does not contain or burn tobacco and therefore does not create smoke which is a product of combustion. A typical electronic cigarettes consists of three main components: 1. a battery

2. an atomiser (heating element) 3. a cartridge containing nicotine Use of e-cigarettes among young people Use of e-cigarettes among young people 2013-16 100% 95% 92% 90% 87% 88% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 11% 10% 10% 4% 6% 0% 0% 2013 1% 2014 1% 2015 1% 0% 2016

Likelihood that a young person has tried an ecigarette increases across the age bracket with 18% of 16-18 year olds reporting to have tried e-cigarettes compared to 3% of 11-13 year olds.

In 2016 regular use, more than once a week was reported at 13% among current smokers compared to 0% among never smokers. While the graphs illustrate an increase in the number of never smokers who have tried an e-cigarette, from 18% in 2014 to 29% in 2016, it is important to remember in 2016 just 10% of young people had ever tried vaping.

However, vapers are using a wide range of flavours including tobacco.

3% About the same 2013 Less harmful 2014 2015 2016 Don't know 11% Summary Overall it is encouraging that a clear majority of young people correctly identify vaping as less harmful than smoking. However, what is concerning is the increase in the number of young people who believe that vaping is about as harmful as smoking increasing by more than 10% between 2013 and 2016. This need to be monitored and it is important that young people are given accurate information about the relative risks of vaping and smoking.
