Richard Miech discusses adolescents’ failed attempts at quitting nicotine

Richard Miech discussed his new Monitoring the Future research in the U.S. News & World Report. The researchers found a greater prevalence of failed attempts at quitting nicotine among teens and these failed attempts were largely driven by attempts to quit e-cigarettes. Miech says, “Unfortunately we are seeing that with e-cigarettes, more kids are struggling with nicotine. With e-cigarettes we have gone backwards, quite substantially.”
