Electronic cigarettes are becoming popular among smokers trying to cut down on the amount of nicotine they consume.

The battery-powered device mimics the sensation of smoking. It delivers nicotine through a vapor.

The e-cigarette is loaded with your flavor of choice.

Some smokers say what they call "vaping" helps them cut down. Some doctors are concerned about the potential effects of toxins from e-cigarettes, not only for users, but for those around them.
