I really agree with you my dear. For me, it's a brilliant concept. We are lived in modern society that is fully technical based. E-cigarettes offer the sensation of smoking, without burning tobacco, which is good for the health as compare to original cigar products.

"I really agree with you my dear" Not if you're spamming e-cigarettes. I don't like smoking and think this is still a way to get people addicted to nicotine. Still, your comment is on topic, so it stays.Delete
