I know that many Bloopers are non smokers, however for those of you who do smoke, have you heard of electronic cigarettes?
(copied from http://www.smokingeverywhere.com)
"It looks like a cigarette, it tastes like a cigarette, it feels like a cigarette, but it isn't a cigarette, it contains no tobacco, and the "smoke" is vapor.
Containing state of the art micro-electronic technology this re-chargeable e-cigarette produces a real "smoking" experience without many of the unpleasant side-effects of smoking tobacco.
As you inhale, a tiny battery vaporizes liquid inside the cigarette producing a smoke like vapor. You insert the Nicotine cartridges of your choice (it comes with a set of 5) that will release nicotine - or if you choose to skip the nicotine altogether, try our 0mg (None) Nicotine cartridges or you can choose from High Nicotine (16mg), Medium Nicotine (11mg) or Low Nicotine (6mg).
Of course some people may come up to you telling you to put your Electronic Cigarette out (it looks that real), but there's no second-hand smoke to worry about. Its NOT a real cigarette, there is NO real smoke, flame, tar or tobacco.
It comes with 2 batteries and a home electric charger, and since there is no flame or real tobacco, we believe that it can be use in most places where traditional smoking is banned. This e-cigarette is tar-free, unlike traditional cigarettes, and may save smokers a fortune in the long run.
