All new electronic cigarettes send shock-waves across America – Katherine Heigl claims to have finally quit smoking by using this remarkable new device.
Actress, the star of Knocked Up, Life As We Know It and Grey’s Anatomy, recently appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and touted the benefits of eco friendly cigarettes also known as e-cigs. During her interview, the conversation turned to smoking, and Heigl surprised Letterman by pulling out her eco friendly cigarette and smoking it on stage.
When speaking with Letterman, Heigl discussed her addiction to cigarettes and she spoke of the difficult experiences she had while trying to quit smoking. She explained that she tried different remedies to kick the habit, but nothing seemed to work.
“I tried everything,” she said. “I did the patch, I did the gum…and went bananas,” Heigl said. After her initial comments on smoking, Heigl pulled out an electronic cigarette and began to smoke it. “Bet I’m freaking you all out right now, huh?” she said.
Heigl then went on to explain exactly what an electronic cigarette is. She pointed out the battery, the filter and mentioned that the unit contained liquid nicotine. As she explained to Letterman, the smoke that she produced while on the show was actually just water vapor.
“You blow out water vapor so you’re not harming anyone around you and you’re not harming yourself,” she told Letterman. “You have no excuse now to smoke a real cigarette. You really don’t.”
As it turns out, she’s not the only one in love with electronic cigarettes. Heartthrobs Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp, as well as veteran sportsman Jose Canseco, are also e-cigarette advocates. In fact, many Americans are now puffing on eco friendly cigarettes, with many finding them a better alternative to smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes.
Heigl’s appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman underscores the steady increase in popularity that electronic cigarettes have experienced in recent years.
