Young people in the UK: share your views on vaping

We would like to speak with people under 25 in the UK as figures show the number of children and young people vaping is rising

The number of teenagers in the England vaping has more than doubled in the last year, according to official figures.

The proportion of 11- to 18-year-olds vaping was 8.6% in 2022, rising from 4% in 2021.

We would like to speak to young people over 18 who began vaping in their teens about why they started and how often they do it. Why did you start? How do you feel about it? Are you concerned about the impact on your health? Is it common among your friendship group?

We would also like to speak to parents and to teachers about children vaping in school.
