Do you smoke?

I don't. My faith forbids me to do such kind of act. My family both sides mostly shares the same faith as well so I've never seen most of them tried smoking. But apparently cigarette smoking is famous the world over. In the year 2000, it has been reported that there are over 1.22 billion people practiced smoking. Accordingly, most of those who practiced it starts at the age 13-15 or even earlier. It is indeed hazardous for ones health and life. A major risk factor for heart attacks, lung cancer, strokes, pulmonary disease, and so forth. The the facts also shows that many premature death attributes to the use tobacco and other forms of cigarettes. But did you know that there's a certain method today that claims to be different among the others. Electronic cigarette, have the look and feel of classic cigarettes yet do not contain the harmful chemicals like tobacco, tar, carcinogens, carbon monoxide, etc. An alternative to tobacco smoking, e-cigarette is a battery-powered device that provides inhaled doses of nicotine by delivering a vaporized propylene glycol/nicotine solution. Many says it's the safest method so far. Perhaps those who practice smoking will be very curious about this new product. What do you think?

I agree, Smoking is harmful to anyone's health. It makes me wonder why government won't stop manufacturing cigarrettes so smokers won't have anything to use.. This e-cigarette sounds interesting.
