Electronic cigarettes also known as e-cig or electric cigarettes are different names but all have the same concept. The manufacturers of these electronic cigarettes claim to be a revolutionary creation designed to allow smokers to feel the satisfaction of smoking a cigarette while not having any of the harmful side effects from additives that come with smoking a real cigarette. In addition, it claims that there is no second hand smoke for the innocent bystanders since it is a vapor and it can be smoked anywhere without breaking the law.
Although the electronic cigarettes claim to be healthier the smoker does inhale nicotine. It does not have tar or other harmful additives and chemicals as regular cigarettes do. The electronic cigarettes look like plastic fake cigarettes which the smoker inhales to get the effects of smoking, the plastic tip lights up as the smoker draws on the cigarette, liquid nicotine atomizes into a fine smoke like substance which the smoker inhales and then exhales as they would with a regular cigarette.
