E-cigs appeal to many types of people for different reasons. And their ages and professions vary as much as there are brands of smokeless cigarettes being hawked.
Interestingly though, certain groups are particularly well-suited to enjoy e-cigs. Here’s a review of the top five groups that find these smokeless gems to be their pot of gold.
In the US, according to Wikipedia, the average video game player is 30 and has been playing video games for over 12 years. Gamers tend to spend a great deal of time indoors where tobacco smoking can be prohibited. But smoking tobacco in front of a computer can lead to a build-up of gunk inside the system and cause damage. Smokeless cigarettes don’t produce anything to build-up in the first place.
Many gamers play online with other opponents, and hate waiting for someone to return from a smoke break. But smokeless cigarettes are fast and easy, allowing gamers to return literally within moments.
The public cigarette ban has left many smokers out in the cold. Few bars allow smoking now, but most smokers want to enjoy a cigarette while drinking and socializing. These things just go together!
Patrons having to go outside for a cigarette pose several problems for the bartender (and the owner of the bar). The more time a customer spends outside, the less he drinks. Instead of making tips on drinks, bartenders polish glasses. Breaking up a customer’s steady purchase of alcohol, decreases the amount of drinks bought.
Bartenders make more money when customers are inside and comfortable, where a simple nod of the head communicates a sale.

Working in a restaurant can be a hectic job at times. Even if waiting on just a single table, there is certainly not enough time to go out back and smoke a complete cigarette—and still get a decent tip anyway.
Smokeless cigarettes, on the other hand, don’t require much time. Most of the time, two or three puffs off an e-cig is enough to satisfy any urge.

Cigarette smoke leaves a film on windows and walls that can be difficult to remove. Falling asleep with a tobacco cigarette in your hand can have tragic consequences. Burn holes on tables and floors are common occurrences for those who smoke regular cigarettes.
Electronic vapor from smokeless cigarettes doesn’t have all the particulates that build up and cause damage and yellowing. E-cigs have no flame, so they can’t burn anything or anyone.
