Living in a Cloud: Adolescent Nicotine Use

Organization(s): NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals

Jan 23, 2019
3:00pm – 4:30pm (1 hour, 30 minutes)
Time Zone: Eastern

Though adolescent cigarette smoking rates have decreased over the past four decades with fewer than 1 in 25 teens reporting daily tobacco use, e-cigarette use has increased two-fold. There are still lower rates of adolescent nicotine use overall, but a potentially dangerous trend has emerged with the increased use of vaping. Cigarette companies are not allowed to market their products to adolescents, but they have found other ways to create a new teen culture through the sponsorship of vaping "cloud" competitions. The purpose of this presentation is to explore the psychopharmacology of nicotine use, the culture of vaping, and strategies for prevention and treatment. Participants will learn how healthy factors of adolescent development add to the risk of becoming addicted to nicotine.
