Why Are Celebrities Vaping?

Golden Globes -- Pictured: Julia Louis Dreyfus (Screengrab)Celebs have been on the e-cigarette bandwagon before there even was a bandwagon. These great arbiters of style and fame, our illustrious trendsetters were on to the trend before most people had even heard of the devices. And as an industry, we couldn’t be happier! Here’s why:

Celebrities have long been known to enjoy tobacco, and cigarettes were always associated with glamour and image. However, as cigarettes came to be less popular among the masses, and quite controversial in terms of how unhealthy they are, many looked to alternatives to get the same satisfaction.

When e-cigarettes hit the market, many celebrities took to them quickly. For many people, Katherine Heigl using her’s on David Letterman was the first introduction to these products. Many, many others followed suit quickly, and in a matter of just a few short years, countless celebs were using them, very proudly for that matter, in all varieties of public places.

They’ve even made appearances in several major Hollywood movies; when Johnny Depp famously used one during a scene in The Tourist, and Leonardo DiCaprio used one during The Great Gatsby.

Celebrities are vaping because all varieties of smokers are vaping. They want a better alternative, that fits with their lifestyle. They want to not look like smoky bad influences when they are photographed by the paparazzi. They want a method of obtaining nicotine that feels comfortable and normal. They want to be able to enjoy their nicotine with all of the control and benefits that come with vaping. They enjoy having a multitude of flavors to choose from. And, perhaps one of the most important reasons, when your career is very dependent on your image, you want to look as good as possible 100% of the time, without worrying over the negative publicity you may create for yourself with tobacco.

Above all, celebs use electronic cigarettes for the same reasons ordinary folks use them. Because they enhance their quality of life, because they provide a world of options, and because they offer more in every sense. Famous or not, alternatives to tobacco are here to stay!

Why Electronic Cigarettes Are So Popular with Celebrities

The reason celebrities are so fond of alternative cigarettes is because they are awesome! They feel better, work better, allow for a lot more convenience, and they help anyone steer clear away from smoke. They are the ultimate smoking option, loaded with benefits, and low on issues. Essentially, they are just better in every way over tobacco!

Celebrities often dictate trends, and when they get noticed doing something, anything, people get curious. And so it goes with electronic cigarettes. As traditional cigarettes have always been really commonplace in Hollywood, celebs got on the bandwagon for e-cigs pretty quickly. Hey, it’s not just ordinary people who want to quit smoking! So, as the popularity of smokeless cigarettes grows massively, so do the amount of stars who are using them. A while back, Katherine Heigl was flaunting her e-cigs everywhere she went. She even gave a demonstration to David Letterman on his late night show. Some of the other famous folks who have been spotted with an e-cigarette in hand are Miley Cyrus, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Petty, JWOW, Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, Dennis Quaid, Harrison Ford, Trace Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Kevin Federline,  Kate Moss, Danny Bonaduce, Ryan Seacrest, and Kate Middleton have all be known or seen lighting up electronically.

There are so many reasons people of all backgrounds are turning to vapor cigarettes, and with all of their benefits, it only makes sense that Hollywood has embraced them. With all the pressure to keep looking as young as possible, tobacco can be a severe detriment, causing a crazy amount of aging to the skin and staining the teeth. And then there are all the health factors that loom no matter who you are, if you are a smoker. And with more positive trends towards health and wellbeing, electronic cigarettes greatly improve daily life and allow smokers to still have nicotine.

Recently, e-cigs even made a cameo in the movie The Tourist, in a scene with two of the hottest Hollywood A-listers, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. While the focus was definitely not on the subject of electronic smoking, Johnny Depp was prominently featured using one on a train, demonstrating the accessibility. If that doesn’t solidify the mass arrival of e-cigarettes, I don’t know what does!
