The word is spreading, and the momentum is building. Approximately two and a half million people are now enjoying this smokeless alternative regularly, with their ranks growing all the time, according to a recent survey by Wells Fargo Securities.

    3. Now I am giving a sound knowledge about Electronic Cigarette industries in all over the world.
