Nearly everyone has heard of e-cigarettes, yet generally speaking, their popularity is vastly underrated. However, this perception is rapidly changing as more as more celebrities jump onto the vapour wagon and flaunt their e-cigs in public, in photoshoots and on television.
The appeal of e-cigs is fundamentally in their ability to look and feel like the real thing. They provide a vapour hit in much the same way as tobacco cigs provide smoke, and from a distance can fool most people. Yet with none of the chemicals found in and associated with tobacco cigarettes, they’re vastly better for your health and have given many smokers the boost they needed to quit.
Because of the lack of smoke (and therefore any risks linked with second hand smoke) vaping is permitted indoors, in restaurants, clubs and offices. The e juice used to create the vapour contains nothing more than propylene glycol, glycerine (both used in foods), water, flavouring and nicotine – and even the amount of nicotine is variable. The flavours come in a stunning variety too, so you really can tailor your vape to suit your individuality.
Here are some of the top celebrities doing just that and, in doing so, promoting this innovative must-have smoking gadget.
This wild-child star of ‘Mean Girls’ is no stranger to vice, but seems to have turned over a new leaf with her embracement of this considerably more health-conscious habit.
