The results, obtained through an online survey of 3,204 individuals aged 18 and over, provide valuable insights into how society views these two modes of consumption.

However, the study also shows a diversity of opinions among participants. Approximately 28% believe that electronic cigarettes are neither more nor less burdensome than tobacco, while only 9% consider them to be more burdensome. This suggests some polarization in perceptions, reflecting the complexity of the issue and the variety of individual experiences.
The results of this barometer provide valuable insights into the evolution of attitudes towards vaping in France. They not only highlight an increasing acceptance of electronic cigarettes as an alternative to tobacco but also the need to better understand consumers' concerns and perceptions in this area.
