An electronic cigarette, also known as an e-cigarette, is a healthy alternative to traditional cigarette smoking. E-cigs vaporize a flavorful, nicotine based liquid that when exhaled, feels similar to the sensation of smoking.
E-liquids come in an almost unlimited number of flavor combinations and range from contain a large amount nicotine to none at all. Using an e-cig is not refereed to as smoking, rather it is called vaping.
Since vaping mimics the sensations from smoking, but without the smoke, tar, or smell, it makes for a healthier alternative that many are finding not only useful in quitting traditional tobacco but quite enjoyable as well.
