Does Vaping Come More Naturally to Generation Z than Millennial?

Updated on November 10, 2020


Initially, brands introduced e-cigarettes to help people overcome their cigarette addiction so they can quit smoking. Of course, studies find that there are numerous other reasons enthusiasts enjoy vape. About 1 in 6 vapers assume they do it for healing purposes, but usually, vaping is more popular among people who were previously addicted to cigarettes.

Does Vaping Come More Naturally to Generation Z than Millennial

One in about five people reportedly vaped in the past month, and around 70% of vape users in the world were previously addicted to cigarettes. If we count the people who vaped, overall the percentage will increase by 39%.

Out of the 59% of people who have vaped, Generation Z barely vapes but only considering this past month. The trend has reversed the last month. 33% of millennials reported using vape-related products and 31% of generation Z.

If we see furthermore, one in every ten vape enthusiasts started e-cigarettes before they turned 18 years old, which is the legal age to get these products. Generation Z makes up the largest portion of people who started vaping but before 18. However, if you are buying a product from an unregistered seller, you may end up purchasing something that puts your life in danger. According to various surveys, we have found that 46% of the population is vaping THC-based products. The CDC recommends that enthusiasts should avoid vaping such products because they may cause many injuries and even deaths.

According to the Forbes survey across America, the millennial generation is the leading group n the so-called smoke-free movement. In a survey of American consumers, researchers found that 40% of people smoking traditional cigarettes in the past year were from the millennial generation. 

When you understand it, it’s not surprising that the millennial generation is the biggest age group to use an electronic smoking option. After all, we are talking about the same generation that grew up around the time the World Wide Web was introduced. Millennials grew up during a time when the meaning behind technology and electronics changed rapidly, changing from an exclusive luxury into a daily necessity. So these 18 to 30-years-olds being the first group to use electronic cigarettes makes complete sense.

Millennials were the original wave to experience the anti-smoking campaign that came about in the 1960s after a report by a surgeon suggested the disadvantages of tobacco smoking on consumers. The current war on tobacco is more powerful than ever. While it hasn’t kept Millennials from picking the habit, smoking has been losing momentum every year with each generation.

 As the Gallup poll was between 2000 and 2008, tobacco use in America is in its lowest polling number in 6 decades. 40% of the adults in 1960 smoked cigarettes, but the number dropped to 18% in 2012. 1 in 5 Americans now says that they smoke.

The Forbes study pitched upon some other worthy statistics: among vape enthusiasts, males make up 55%, and females make up 44%. Also, with smokers who said that they use new products, e-cigarettes are the most popular approaches, while the second involves quitting cold turkey.

According to Truth Initiative, the most popular e-cigarette brand, JUUL comprises nearly three-quarters (73.4%) of the e-cigarette marketplace (July 2019).


 The future perspective of e-cigarettes is a question. The general assortment of specific regulatory agencies, political figures, and business groups are all working on to control the result. Though we know that eventually, it will become ordinary for people to decide and while longer and many other Generations start to use them. 1 in 5 or 20% U.S. teens, also known as Generation Z, believe e-cigarettes are “safe.” With lightly older Millennial (ages 22-38), the percentage who believe so is much higher — 24%, according to the survey
