Most adults and youth choose not to smoke cigarettes. According to the CDC, current cigarette smoking among adults fell from nearly 21% in 2005 to 14% in 2017. For high schoolers, current smoking fell from about 16% in 2011 to about 8% in 2018. And for middle schoolers, current smoking rates fell from about 4.3% to a little under 2%. These decreases indicate the public health campaign against smoking tobacco has had some success.
As the number of cigarette smokers drop, however, the number of people who use electronic cigarettes has grown, especially among youth. E-cigarettes are now the most popular tobacco product among youth.
