Poker has always enjoyed a solid reputation among card games as one that brings together skill, strategy and luck; a game that can be played during a friendly evening among friends in the basement or at a high-rollers’ meeting behind the doors of a members-only playing room in a casino.

The versatility of poker, added with the sense of drama and anticipation that comes when studying the back of your opponents’ cards and the expressions of their faces, make it a firm favourite among players of any calibre.

Look what they are smoking

It has been more than a decade that electronic cigarettes, better known as the e-cigarette or simply e-cigs, are warming the shelves in the market, but it lacked presence in Hollywooduntil pretty recently. The portrayal of E-Cigarette on the big screen has triggered fresh ripples across the Hollywood celebrity community and since then it is gaining rapid popularity. Being one of the first realistic substitutes of traditional cigarettes, some Hollywood celebrities have accepted this new assortment and have also stepped forward in accepting endorsements.
“The Tourist,” was one of the prime breakthroughs, where leading actor Johnny Depp was spotted e-smoking in the film. Depp was using his e-cigarette on a train, and on being asked about his smoking in a “no smoking” area, his simple reply was that he was not smoking at all and that e-cigarettes are free from the public smoking ban.

Our other star who has taken the e-cigarette habit and has been spotted numerous times smoking these products on the regular is Model Kate Moss. Lately we have even seen Charlie Sheen,our favourite “Two and a half men” star, working on an endorsing of an E-Cig company advertised as the ‘The Winning E-Cigarette Sheen Safe Smoke.’ From its portrayal it is understood that Sheen has also become one of several partners in the E-Cigarette company.

Amongst other the well-known Hollywood star, Jenny McCarthy, “The View” co-host, have been encouraging the use of Electronic cigarettes against traditional cigarettes. She has also endorsed the e-cigarette brand Blu and can be seen in its commercials. She explains that, now her mouth doesn’t taste like an ashtray, her love life has improved and she feels better about herself. The e-cigs have provided her with a way to smoke without making her feel like a social outcast. This year we even saw Leonardo DiCaprio and Julia Louis-Dreyfus smoking e-cigarettes at the honourable Golden Globe Award ceremony.

E-cigarette is one of the best nicotine replacement products as it has lesser toxic effects than traditional cigarettes. Studies reveal that e-cigarettes are one of the best aid for smoking cessation. It is more effective than traditional pharmacotherapy, mostly because puffing on the e-cigarette gives a more traditional feel and is more effective in dealing with as well as improving short term cravings.

2.7% of U.S adults have tried electronic cigarettes and a staggering 31% of those who have tried e-cigs ended up quitting tobacco based cigarettes within a 3 month period. Estimates are that 45 million people smoke traditional tobacco cigarettes and today the number of electronic cigarette smokers are well above 2.5 and rising.Recently we have also seen, Lindsay Lohan, using the electronic replacement for cigarettes, which we presume is aimed at her smoking cessation.

Other prominent Hollywood celebrities like Simon Cowell, Katherine Heigl, Courtney Love, Bradley Cooper, Robert Pattison, have also been spotted using e-cigs. Read more about Ecigarette here.
