      found that among exclusive cigarette smokers, using flavored e-cigarettes 1 year later was associated with lower quantity of cigarette smoking. This study uses U.S. nationally representative data from the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study to report on e-cigarette flavor use among adult past 30–day dual users of e-cigarettes and cigarettes and to longitudinally evaluate the relationship between flavor use and attempting to quit cigarette smoking approximately 1 year later.
