Celebrities have embraced the e cig trend and many famous people from models to actors have been spotted ‘vaping’ in public. The elite of Hollywood and the entertainment industry are catching on quickly to e cig technology. It’s fantastic that so many people are choosing a smoke that doesn’t have the drawbacks of stinky, unhealthy and harmful traditional cigarettes.

Lindsay Lohan

Whether you love her or loathe her you simply can’t ignore this controversial starlet. This celebrity party girl is always in the news, and she doesn’t exactly have a reputation for living the clean life! However, it would appear that recently Lindsay has been making more health conscious choices, and she has been spotted smoking BLU CIG e-cigarettes.

Perhaps this is a signal that this bad girl is on her way to becoming a reformed character, I hope her recent switch to smoking e-cigs fuels her motivation for a healthier lifestyle. It would be great to see Miss Lohan put her troubled past behind her, so keep up the good work Lindsay!

Charlie Sheen

Bad boy actor and star of Two and a Half Man Charlie Sheen has taken to e-cigs. He was able to sidestep the smoking ban by using e-cigarettes. His crazy antics led to him firing up an e-cig on stage during his Violent Torpedo of Truth tour in 2011. Although this star has courted controversy on many occasions he made a wise and health conscious choice when he turned to e- cigarettes.

Charlie has been linked to Smokeless Delight e-cigs; however, he was so impressed with smokeless cigarettes that he has partnered up with a popular e-cigarette company to launch the NicoSheen brand of e-cig. Although it is rumoured that Sheen still also smokes traditional cigarettes he is known as man of excess, and perhaps this also applies to nicotine!


Kate Moss

Arguably one of the most famous supermodels in the world, this English Rose is renowned for her sizzling hot looks and her rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. We all know that traditional cigarettes contribute to wrinkles and aging of the skin, so e-cigs will help Kate to retain her youthful appearance and model looks. It is rumoured that Kate turned to e-cigarettes after numerous attempts to quit smoking tobacco failed miserably. And while she’ll still get her nicotine kick, she has finally shaken off the chattels of the evil weed without gaining any weight. Kate Moss hasn’t disclosed her brand of choice yet, but we’re waiting with baited breath.


Leonardo DiCaprio

Dubbed the ‘smoking cyclist’ or more accurately the ‘vaping cyclist’ Leonardo is yet another celebrated actor who has embraced the e-cig habit. He was one of the first stars to cotton on to this new technology.

Back in March 2009 Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted smoking an e-cig while out cycling! While smoking a tobacco cigarette on a push bike is an unpleasant idea, a smokeless cigarette won’t fill your lungs with tar. Perhaps this is the way forward for all fitness fanatics who enjoy cigarettes but who don’t want to clog their lungs with fetid tobacco smoke.

Leonardo’s publicist has made no secret of the fact that the star partakes of the Smoke Stik brand.


Katherine Heigl

Glamorous actress Katherine Heigle is another star who has made the switch to electronic cigarettes, and she is a fan of the Smoke Stik brand. Motherhood spurred her on to make healthier choices, which naturally included giving up tobacco. A gorgeous actress like Katherine doesn’t want yellow teeth, bad skin and wrinkles! E cigarettes do not starve the skin of oxygen and cause premature aging, so we will hopefully be able to appreciate Katherine’s beauty for many years to come.

Katherine Heigl publicly endorsed e-cigarettes in September 2010 on live national television. She sung their praises on the Late Show with David Letterman while actually smoking her Smoke Stik  Hendu Elite e-cig. During a discussion about the effectiveness of Champix (smoking cessation medication), they both agreed that the medication had not been affective for Katherine. David Letterman was so curious about e cigs that he had to have a couple of ‘vapes’ on her e-cigarrette.


Johnny Depp

Heart throb and award winning actor Johnny Depp was captured smoking an e-cig on the silver screen during The Tourist. During this film Depp is shown several times ‘vaping’ on an e cigarette. Many e-cig users consider this to be a signal that ‘vaping’ in public is not only socially acceptable now, but that smoking electronic cigarettes is also mainstream. It’s worth mentioning at this point that Johnny Depp is ‘vaping’ right next to a no smoking sign during the scene on the train.

An actor being filmed publicly ‘vaping’ in a Hollywood movie is an exciting development, and it’s great that more people are finally ‘seeing the light’. Although the brand has not been confirmed, many e-cig connoisseurs have suggested that it looks like a Smokeless Delight e-cig.



These are just a few celebrities who have caught onto the benefits of e cigarettes. One thing’s for sure; e cigs are gaining popularity and we’ll see increasing numbers of cigarette smokers in the media.

Alexa.com Electronic cigarette rankings

Today’s post is going to have to be brief as I need to dash off to a friend’s wedding. But I just had to let you all know about my recent purchase at V2 Cigs. I encountered a very interesting banner at the V2 Cigs site; which stated that according to Alexa.com (who report trends) V2 Cigs are the most popular e cig brand. This is a pretty awesome feat considering the fact that the brand has been going for just over a year.

Alexa.com consists of a tool bar and website that publishes data on internet trends. If the tool bar is installed it tracks users and transmits data on browsing habits, websites visited and where a user clicks. The data is collected and analyzed for web traffic reports on trends, so people can then identify which products and services are most popular with internet users. However, Alexa.com can only use data from people who have their toolbar installed, and I don’t have figures for how many people actually have this toolbar.  Alexa.com aren’t the only people who track trends, but I can tell you now that I know the E cig industry inside out, and V2 Cigs have recently replaced Blu Cigs as the most popular brand.

But I’m not one to blow my own trumpet, so I’d like to say CONGRATULATIONS to everyone at VMR Products/V2 Cigs. Well done for coming such a long way in such a short space of time.

But anyway, back to Alexa.com and trends, I have some good news of my own to report. My very own electronic cigarette review site, which I’ve been working tirelessly on since 2009, is actually the top site in Alexa.com’s “electronic cigarette reviews” category.  This prompted me to have a look at the competition, and there were some pretty impressive looking websites. Sure they looked rather fancy, but even the latest gimmicks are no substitute for hard work or honest and insightful blog posts. I’ve poured my heart into this blog, and since I started getting really serious around 2010, all the hard work has really paid off.

As always it’s my readers and visitors that make blogging worthwhile for me. I’m always happy to read comments and emails. Giving my readers tips and discount coupon codes is immensely satisfying. So a BIG THANKYOU to all my readers, your time is always appreciated and please do keep on asking questions, and be sure to stick around for reviews of new products. I’ll be posting more in the near future!

On that note I’m off to get suited and booted for the wedding. Maybe I’ll have a couple of glasses of Champaign while I “vape” away on a V2 Cigs e cigarette. If you’re lucky I might even post some photos!

One of the first questions anyone asks when they consider switching to Electronic cigarettes is whether they are harmful. Bearing in mind that there is no clinical data to confirm or disprove the safety of e cigarettes we’ll have to rely on common sense and anecdotal evidence. It seems that there are different opinions being touted by the media and health professionals alike. However, at this point I can safely consider myself to be something of an expert due to my long running career as e cigarette reviewer extraordinaire.

I’m going to focus today on how I have benefitted personally from switching to e-cigarettes rather than dwelling upon potentially bogus accusations of their harmfulness.

In this day and age the traditional smoker can end up feeling like something of an outcast. When I made the transition to e-cigarettes there was a pivotal moment for me when I realized what a life line they were. My Eureka moment came when I was meeting with some trendy types in the marketing business. I was starting to feel the need for my regular nicotine fix, so rather than heading off for a smoke and risking appearing unprofessional, I decided to be bold! I could have excused myself and scurried off through the plush Miami Beach Hotel lobby, but instead I decided to ask if it was fine for me to “light one up”. Not that I would have been lighting anything, of course, seeing as e cigs are non combustible.

Imagine my surprise when my clients reeled with laughter, why was I even asking? Never the less, it’s always polite to ask others if they mind before you go ahead and “vape” in their company. By then I had piqued their interest with my electronic cigarette and I was bombarded with questions about my favourite gadget, it wasn’t my intention to divert anyone from the business at hand, but my clients were now very curious. I had even gained an advantage! I realised that I was able to conduct business secure in the knowledge that I had a steady supply of nicotine on hand, but without the disadvantages of traditional cigarettes. This was far more professional in my opinion, but the advantages of e-cigarettes went much further for me.

Back in the days when I was still an e-cigarette novice I experienced an extremely important benefit of e-cigarettes first hand. Now I don’t know if you’ve ever been burning along in your automobile while enjoying the thrill of the open road, only to have your cigarette blown from your mouth into the back of your car, but believe me it’s no fun! While on the way to a business meeting in South Florida I would have come to a sticky end had I not been smoking an electronic cigarette at the time.

My heart skipped a beat as I imagined my car catching fire and hurtling down the freeway like a big ball of flames, or a huge burn in my designer suit.  I heaved a massive sign of relief when I remembered I was actually smoking an e cig, and as I slowed down the little fella was lying safely on the floor right beside my feet. My car was fine, my suit was intact and all was good in my world.

Anyone who has smoked tobacco cigarettes knows that awkward and guilty feeling you get when you want to smoke but there’s kids around. Being a generous guy I like to help my family or lend a hand, and it’s not uncommon for me to have the nephews and nieces round every few weeks to give their parents a break! With traditional tobacco cigarettes I was lucky if I managed to furtively sneak a couple of cigarette breaks in when I had the kids over. I found e-cigarettes were a far more convenient way of indulging my habit. A little puff here and a little puff there was all it took, because I wasn’t trying to hide the fact that I was standing out doors puffing away on a smoky old cigarette. With electronic cigarettes you can slip one out and take a crafty puff before popping the device back into your pocket, and no children will ever have to breathe your second-hand smoke. By not having to keep extinguishing unfinished cigarettes you can actually save a surprising amount of money, and this in itself is worthy of consideration.

These are just a few reasons why e cigarettes are safer for smokers and non smokers alike, I could go on listing the positives almost indefinitely, but then what would I write for my next post?

Until next time.

I’d like to WELCOME all newcomers to my e cigs review blog. Seasoned readers may well find that today’s update isn’t exactly “news” to them, but today I’d like to examine electronic cigarettes and their increasing popularity.

The use of electronic cigarette’s has been skyrocketing and increasing in prominence. However, you may be curious and also a little confused if you have never tried them for yourself, and you might even wonder what the fuss is all about. So for the next few minutes let’s see some of the great brands that are available, look at the reasons for the rising popularity of e-cigarettes and you can decide for yourself if you’d like to give e-cigarettes a go!

Electronic cigarettes offer the smoker a highly satisfying alternative to traditional cigarettes in the form of a fully portable electronic gadget. The device produces vapors which mimic the appearance, aroma and taste of the traditional tobacco cigarettes. Smokers can still enjoy the sensations of smoking including the hit of nicotine so withdrawal symptoms are simply not an issue. This means that smokers of traditional cigarettes can switch to e-cigs with ease.
What makes people switch from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes?

Well, there are many compelling and noteworthy reasons for making the switch.
First of all because e-cigarettes produce vapour instead of smoke they are a healthy alternative to traditional cigarettes. The vapors are produced by way of ultrasonic’s or a source of non-combustible heat. The tar, carbon monoxide and harmful additives found in tobacco cigarettes are absent from e-cigarettes making them safer and cleaner.

Since smoking is no longer permitted in bars, restaurants and other public buildings non-combustible e-cigarettes are often an acceptable alternative. Although various establishments have their own policies, and laws can vary between states, e-cigarettes are often permitted. The fact that many people find they can smoke e-cigs indoors is another reason for their growing popularity.
Although e-cigarettes come in a range of styles most are a convenient size, pen size, as you would expect. Most varieties come with reusable cartridges and the cartridges contain a liquid which is heated to produce the vapors.  This allows for a more creative variety of products in the form of flavoured cartridges, and these include traditional tobacco and menthol as well as more exotic flavours like cherry or chocolate.

Bull Smoke is fast becoming one of the most popular e-cig brands. Their wide range of flavoured cartridges encompasses fruity flavours, classic flavours that are designed to taste like your old favourite cigarette brands and even dessert flavours! So whether you consider yourself a sophisticated or more rugged type there is bound to be a flavour for you. You can read all about this featured product and learn more in my “Bullsmoke  review post

My advice to anyone who is considering trying e-cigarettes is to try it for yourself. E cigarettes, in my opinion, are a must for any smoker, and once I tried them I never looked back because of the health benefits and other plus points. So if you’re curious grab yourself a good quality kit with your choice of flavours and enjoy a safer cleaner smoke.

The fairer sex are an enigma with their own needs and desires, I know what you’re thinking, but today I’m referring to e cigs! A certain well established brand understands the mysterious ways of the woman, and they’re about to launch a brand new offer that will appeal to the ladies. The product is exquisite and although I can’t disclose name or brands at this point in time I can tell you that it’s fabulous. This e-cigarette is aimed at women who are looking for a feminine and sophisticated product and it certainly ticks both boxes. I can genuinely say that I was amazed when I first learned of it.

But I‘m not done teasing you quite yet! I’ll be updating this page in the near future with details of this fantastic offer and it’s going to be a BIG success.
