Hon Lik worked day and night to realize his dream. In 2004, he finally invented the electronic cigarette. It was a small battery powered device that delivered nicotine liquid solution in a vaporized form, fog, when inhaled air activates an atomizer. It had a red light at the tip that lighted up with each drag. It did not contain the substances commonly found in regular cigarettes, such as, tar and other cancer causing agents.
Hon Lik gave one of the first prototypes to his father, who was also a heavy tobacco smoke and dying of lung cancer at that time. His father enjoyed the electronic cigarette and was happy that with the device there would be fewer sons watching their fathers dying of lung cancers.
Over thirty percent (30%) of the entire world's population are hurting by smoking regular cigarettes. Tobacco smoking kills one person every six seconds. With this revolutionary electronic cigarette, the “earn billions and kill millions” tobacco industry will be certainly transformed in near future. Thanks to Hon Lik, We finally have the alternative method of delivering nicotine that is truly enjoyable. Hon Lik is a life-saving Hero.
