Since 2009, as the vaping industry picked up strength and people gained awareness, the smoking rate in the United States has dropped an astonishing 31.6 percent!
US adult smoking rates have hit an ALL-TIME low of 14.1% according to the CDC. It is obvious the impact that vaping is having on helping people leaving traditional combustible cigarettes behind them for good. While the CDC does not officially admit that vaping has had a major impact on these numbers, frankly they speak for themselves. Nicotine patches, gum, and smoking cessation pills have all been around for well over a decade, yet within the 8 years of vaping gaining popularity, the smoking rate has dropped an amazing 31.6% since 2009. A testament to a truly great innovation.
