The similarity and routines of e cigarettes can help supplement the experience. For example using an e cigarette in your car or in your home is an easy transition. E cigs are more cost effective but also have advantages like no cigarette smell or dirty ashtrays to clean. The convenience of using an e cig while maintaing the smoking experience can help you cut back and maybe even be on your way to quitting.
