Smoking & Tobacco Use Features


TIPS from Former Smokers

A U.S. Surgeon General's Report on e-cigarette use among youth and young adults was published in 2016. Major conclusions from the report emphasize the importance of preventing harm from e-cigarettes. On CDC.gov, an article titled “E-cigarettes and Young People: A Public Health Concern” was recently posted to share information with youth, parents and other adult influencers, public health professionals, clinicians, and policymakers about the actions they can take to protect the health of our nation's young people. Available resources highlighted in the article included the Surgeon General’s website on e-cigarettes, a fact sheet [PDF–114 KB] and “parent tip sheet [PDF–5.20 MB],” and an informative video.
