If you are 19 or older and an exclusive vaper (meaning only vaping and no cigarette smoking) who lives with someone that does not vape, or a non-vaper who lives with an exclusive vaper, then you may qualify for this study. The person who vapes/does not vape can be your roommate, partner etc. Potential participants will be screened prior to enrollment to ensure they are eligible.
