Vape culture has spread far and wide, up to the highest rungs of culture. Here are the top 10 celebrities who vape.
You’re finally ready to make that bold and brave move to swap your much-loved cigarettes for the healthier and more convenient option – the vape.
Unlike regular cigarettes, vapes don’t burn tobacco, so they’re a better option to smoking. They’re a great first step away from smoking tobacco, and the idea is to eventually wean off vaping as we all know it’s difficult to go cold turkey.
The transition is a hard process, but maybe you need that extra push and inspiration.
Ever wondered about the celebrities who vape?
From A-list actors to chart-topping songstresses, more stars are being photographed with a vape in hand and the list is getting longer.
Whether you’re celeb-obsessed or you try to avoid them at all costs, there’s no doubt that the famous faces of the media hold a big influence on the public. Whether their actions are positive or negative, celebrities are seen as role models, especially to younger fans.
With more celebrities ditching the ciggies and picking up a vape, let’s hope this positive influence can lead others to a healthier option than smoking.
So, as stardom embraces vaping, let’s take sneak peek at the celebrities who’ve traded smokes for e-cigarettes.
