Electronic cigarettes allow you to do just that. Rather than stopping that hand-to-mouth simulation that you have made a habit of, e-cigs offer a better alternative.
As I approach the two-year mark of my switch from analogs to vaping, I can’t help but notice how different the ecig world is now from what it was then. This isn’t a bad thing by any means, just somewhat shocking when you think about how far it’s progressed.

Vape meets are meetings where fellow vapers get together to discuss everything related to electronic cigarettes and personal vaporizers. They are held by clubs in cities all over the world.
