Are there any viable alternatives to electronic cigarettes?

Despite the fact that authorities around the world have attempted to destabilise and disrupt the electronic cigarette industry it is now more popular today than it ever has been. The monumental growth of recent years is expected to be repeated in the short to medium term and this despite the threat of overly strict regulations and in some cases retrospective regulations.
