Before talking to you about the electronic cigarette, it is important to tell you about the history of the cigarette which dates back thousands of years.
Why thousands of years ? Quite simply, before the modern use of cigarettes, our ancestors used chewing tobacco, snuff, the pipe or the cigar. In the past, the use of these objects was reserved for people who were aware of their choices and actions.

Also known as an e-cigarette or vapoteuse, the electronic cigarette is a small object, an electronic device that heats a liquid containing several types of fruity or sweet aromas.
