BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Completely substituting e-cigarettes (EC) for combustible tobacco cigarettes reduces exposure to toxicants and carcinogens. However, a large proportion of EC users (dual users) continue to smoke conventional cigarettes. This study aimed to compare estimated nicotine intake and e-cigarette use characteristics between exclusive EC users and dual users.
DESIGN: Web-based anonymous cross-sectional survey.
PARTICIPANTS: A total of 3189 adults, current users of electronic cigarettes (EC). Data collection between 4 October 2014 and 11 November 2014.
MEASUREMENTS: Primary outcome: estimated nicotine intake per day (mg) from participants' reports.
SECONDARY OUTCOMES: duration, frequency of EC use and nicotine content of e-liquids used/day. Dual use was defined as using at least one cigarette per day while also using EC.
FINDINGS: A total of 2836 respondents reported exclusive EC use and 353 reported being dual users. Backward stepwise logistic regression showed that dual users had higher estimated combined daily nicotine intake from e-liquids and cigarettes [estimate: 2.14, standard error (SE) = 0.26, adjusted odds ratio (aOR) = 8.48, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 5.11-14.09, P CONCLUSION: Dual e-cigarette users in France may have higher nicotine intake overall than exclusive e-cigarette users, but they may take in less nicotine from their e-cigarettes.
