What are e-cigarettes (e cigarettes)?

e-cigarettes are smokable, refillable or replaceable cartridges or containers that hold liquid that contains nicotine, solvents, and flavors. When a person inhales ("vaping"), they are putting a negative pressure on the device that triggers a battery to heat the liquid solution, which is then atomized into inhalable vapor.

I am female smoker for 35 plus years. I now use e-vapor cigarettes. My lungs are improving, and I am feeling better too. I am saving money as I was a 3 pack a day smoker. Never again. The e-cigarettes will help you stop cigarette smoking. I am 52 years old, with COPD too. All my lung and heart test now show healing. I have been smoke free since July 26, 2015.

I personally have been using e-cigarettes for well over a year now and no longer smoke tobacco. Certainly I am still addicted to nicotine. I have noticed that recently there seems to be more lung congestion than previously, though not as much or as nasty as when I smoked tobacco. I do not use the sweet flavored liquids and stick to RY4 exclusively. One of the things that concerns me about these liquids is the trend by retailers to use the term juice to describe the product. Using a term that is attractive to children to describe a deadly poison is in my view at best irresponsible. At worst negligent. It can and will inevitably lead to the death of children who will drink it thinking it is, well juice. Action should be taken immediately to make describing a potentially lethal toxin juice punishable by imprisonment.
