The noxious taste and sensations of the initial smoking experience, which deter some from smoking, is not present in pod mods, which is a factor in their addictiveness.
E-cigarette use was 9.8% among current smokers, 1.1% among former smokers, and 0.6% among nonsmokers.

Compared with men in the top income group, men in the bottom income group (poorest 20% of the population) would gain 6.7 times more life years (155 versus 23 million). For each smoker in the bottom income group, the average life years gained from cessation was 5.1 times that of the top group (1.46 versus 0.23 years).
