  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • My friend recently wanted me to quit smoking, so he got me a ecigarette so it is less harmful. I now use it more than i usually smoke because i can use it in the house. Before i had to go outside to have a smoke, now i can read a book or watch tv with it right in front of me and avoid the hassle of going outside. Because of the convenience, i use it fairly regularly in side.
