Abstract

Prior research indicates that a subset of traditional cigarette smokers is motivated to smoke for weight-related reasons (i.e., to lose or maintain weight). This study evaluates whether a similar relationship can be observed between vaping and weight concerns in adult e-cigarette users. The study also identifies predictors of vaping for weight management from the following factors: age, sex, race, flavor preferences, number of diet attempts, and eating pathology.
