Purpose of Study 

The purpose of this study is to determine the lung and immune function benefits of stopping vaping for 72 hours in young adults who use e-cigarettes containing nicotine. The study also aims to determine if telling participants of their own personalized changes to their lung and immune function following the 72 hour abstinence period affects their motivation in quitting vaping.

Eligibility 

Young adults between the ages of 19-35 years who regularly use e-cigarettes containg nicotine.
