VAPOURS ELECTRONIC cigarette ( recreates a smoking experience which is very similar to traditional smoking. The electronic cigarette looks, feels, tastes and smokes like a real cigarette and it offers smokers the pleasure of smoking without the worry of harmful side-effects.

The electronic cigarette should be used as a harm reduction technique.

The electronic cigarette does not need ignition, it lights automatically when drawn on and will switch off automatically.

Vapours contains a nicotine cartridge and atomiser, a smart chip controller and a built in lithium battery.

Vapours is an innovative and revolutionary device. The electronic cigarette is powered by the latest microelectronic technology in the form of the atomiser. The atomiser heats up automatically when the smoker inhales or draws on the cigarette.

The heated atomiser then converts the liquid nicotine, contained within the cartridge into a vapour which is similar to normal cigarette smoke.

The vapour which is inhaled contains the nicotine which smokers crave and are addicted to.

Smokers can finally enjoy a simulated smoking experience which does not result any side effects or health risks to themselves or those around them.

I used to smoke frequently and I have been trying to quit because a strange problem had developed where it feels like mucus is trapped in my lung and I cannot cough it or hack it up. Now its more irritated and occasionally I feel like Im forcing this out of my lung as I breath but it only produces crackling, bubbling noises with no relief only putting the mucus closer up my chest toward ny throat and It feels as if Im not sick at all and have to force a cough to feel some relief. Im 18 have been smoking since I was 13 and tried drinking lemon water, cough medicine, and only get little relief. Im wondering what this could be whether its just damage fron smoking which I shouod stop or somethibg maybe serious needicing medical attention?
