E-cigs return smokers to days gone by
Back in the early days of film, actors and actresses were larger than life. Moviegoers slipped into cool, dark theaters to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It was easy to get lost in the romantic dalliances of Jean Harlowe and Clark Gable, or laugh at Charlie Chaplin as he slept his way through a fire drill.
In those days, the liquor flowed freely and white plumes of smoke accentuated scene after scene. When Harlowe leaned against the door frame, eyed Gable from across the room and slowly exhaled smoke from her cigarette in “Red Dust,” the tension was palpable. Watching Cary Grant sip a martini in the ballroom, gazing through the cigarette smoke into Greta Garbo’s eyes, you could feel the heat.
Those days are gone, and that’s for the best. Let’s face it, smoking isn’t glamorous or stylish. But many people – movie stars or not – still find it relaxing.
Electronic cigarettes are helping return us to a simpler time. With e-cigs, people can light up in a restaurant after a delicious meal, while taking a stroll in the park, or yes, even in a movie theater. They’re even showing up on the big screen. Johnny Depp used his e-cig throughout The Tourist in 2010.
E-cigs give people the freedom to make their own decisions about when and where to smoke.
