Smoking has plagued the world since it came out in the 9th century, and now the ever-prescence of cigarettes in the 20th century and new electronic nicotine vaporizers have made smoking more common than ever.

Smoking is seen in the world as “”normal””, but there is an underlying epidemic of nicotine addiction and abuse.
