Have you heard of the SmokeStik? It’s an electronic cigarette that gives cigarette-addicted users a fix of nicotice while emitting water vapors. As a result, it can be legally smoked indoors (although I don’t know about on planes, which is where it seems it would be really helpful).
The biggest celebrity proponent for the Smokestik is Katherine Heigl, who is often photographed with hers, and appeared on David Letterman a few months back touting its virtues. She’s now apparently designing a cigarette for SmokeStik called the Pitbull, and proceeds from its sale will go to her dog rescue foundation Compassion Revolution.
I’ve been meaning to do a post on this forever, but it kept slipping away from me because it’s not really beauty related. (But then again, smoking causes wrinkles and aging–not to mention, obviously, cancer–so maybe it is relevant!)
In any case, having lost family members to lung cancer, I’m all for anything that helps people quit smoking–even if it is exchanging one (harmful) addiction for another (harmless one)!
