    New estimates about vaping by CDC are out.

    The survey, conducted in 2014, involved 36,697 adults.

    The 18-24 age group had the highest percentage of adults who had ever tried an e-cigarette in their lifetime at 21.6%, according to the CDC study. The percentage fell more and more for older age groups: 25-44 years (16.6%), 45-64 years (10.2%), and 65 and older (3.7%).

    The study found that 3.7% of US adults use e-cigarettes every day or some days. Meanwhile, 12.6% of adults have tried an e-cigarette at least once.

    So, if the numbers are correct, there should be about 9 million daily vapers in the US out of about 43,6 million smokers.

    The picture is getting better and better and yet the FDA wants to destroy the progress made to helping people get away from smoking.

    Leaves me speechless.

    This may be a stupid question, but is there a source of the raw data for these findings? I'd like to see the data for myself.

    Thanks for sharing. Vape on.

    That's 9 million people evading cigarette taxes. And evading tobacco control. In the eyes of gov't bureaucrats. What you see as success they see as a threat.

    If you use those number and think of the lost revenue you'll understand the real rational behind our governments need to continue to push cigarettes.

    Think of this:
    9 million vapors
    at least 1 PAD smokers
    taxes per pack (underestimated) $1.00

    It's making them have to fly on commercial planes and they won't be able to remodel their offices this year.

    News reports have indicated the fed. gov. has been talking recently about increasing the fed. excise tax on cigs. Trying to make up lost revenue? State of TN has also mentioned increasing their excise tax. Vapers are making a dent in some budgets.

    Because nearly 100% of Americans use that and its socially acceptable. Smokers are scum and only compromise 20% of the population.

    Not my view. How I think nonsmokers see it.
