Tobacco & Vaping

What is it?

Tobacco products and vaping are used to deliver the highly addictive drug nicotine. Once your body gets a taste for nicotine, it can quickly become an addiction.

Tobacco products include cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars, and pipes. Vaping products are electronic devices that heat a liquid and produce an aerosol, or mix of small particles in the air.

Nicotine is the main drug in all forms of tobacco. Nicotine acts as both a stimulant and a sedative. It is one of the most heavily used addictive drugs in the U.S.
