Young adults report increased pleasure from using e-cigarettes and smoking tobacco cigarettes when drinking alcohol.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Cigarettes share a high rate of co-use with alcohol, particularly among young adults. Studies have demonstrated greater perceived pleasure from smoking cigarettes when drinking alcohol. However, little is known about co-use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) and alcohol. The current study sought to compare extent of use and perceived pleasure from cigarettes and e-cigs when drinking alcohol. METHODS:Young adult bar patrons in California cities (San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco) were recruited in 2015-16 using randomized time-location sampling. Participants completed cross-sectional surveys in bars, reporting the percent of cigarette smoking/e-cig use that occurred under the influence of alcohol, and reported if pleasure from smoking cigarettes/using e-cigs changed when drinking alcohol. Analyses are limited to participants reporting current (past 30-day) use of cigarettes, e-cigs, and alcohol (N?=?269; M age?=?24.1; 40.1% female, 36.1% Non-Hispanic White). RESULTS:Participants reported a greater percentage of cigarette smoking compared to e-cig use under the influence of alcohol (cigarettes M?=?63.6%; e-cigs M?=?46.7%; p?
