With millions of tobacco smokers making the switch to e-cigarettes, it’s not surprising that quite a few celebrities have done the same. In fact, in quite a few households, it was by watching an appearance with former “Grey’s Anatomy” actress Katherine Heigl’s on a late night talk show a couple of years ago that highlighted the existence of electronic cigarettes.
While some observers, especially those who have a strong aversion to tobacco smoking, consider the habit to be unsightly at best, the fact is, traditional tobacco cigarettes contain 499 chemicals and a host of health risks, and making the change to vaping should be applauded not denigrated.
Unfortunately, both tobacco smokers and vapers experience prejudice, but perhaps with time and education that will change. In the meantime, Hollywood has taken to the trend in the same way that many of us across the planet have; kicking the nasty tobacco habit for good.
A few of the other celebrities who’ve decided to makeover at least one of their bad habits includes Leonardo DiCaprio who has frequently been captured on film smoking an e-cig. The actor is frequently working hard at supporting a number of good causes, including directly working with orphaned children in Mozambique as well as helping to stop global warming and donating massive amounts of cash to charities like International Fund for Animal Welfare, Feeding America and Global Green.
Supermodel Kate Moss has switched to electronic cigarettes, while famed “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson and Nikki Reed, all vape. It’s hard to imagine anyone thinking that these celebs are “disgusting.”
Reality TV stars Josh and Jake Harris from The Discovery Show’s “The Deadliest Catch,” famously quit tobacco smoking and switching to vaping after their father Phil died in 2010. Phil died from a stroke that was brought on by his heavy tobacco smoking habit, and the brothers are determined to help others with the same problem that killed their dad.
