Hollywood actor Nick Nolte has binned his bad smoking habit with the help of an “electronic” cigarette.
Nick who has had more than his fair share of negative publicity over the years.
Who can forget his mad haired police mug-shot below following his 2002 arrest on suspicion of drink driving?
When blood tests revealed the presence of the date rape drug GHB, Nolte, who starred alongside Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours back in 1982, allegedly said, Ive been taking it for four years and Ive never been raped yet.
Now though it seems the 69 year old has put his well publicised battles with drink and drugs firmly behind him and hes even managed to kick tobacco into touch after taking up a SmokeStik.
Nolte, voted the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine in 1992, was given a SmokeStik, the worlds leading brand of electronic cigarette, six months ago and yesterday admitted it had helped him to quit the cigs.
In a statement Nolte said: “Using Smokestik is a real good way to get off the cigarette. If you have a relapse with regular cigarettes, immediately pick up the Smokestik.”
SmokeStiks are battery operated devices which give smokers a nicotine hit without the need for harmful tobacco. Theyve been eagerly adopted by big name celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton.
A spokesman said: We are thrilled that Nick Nolte has become the latest celebrity to quit smoking thanks to SmokeStik.
SmokeStiks release only an odourless vapour and are believed to be relatively healthy compared to traditional tobacco based cigarettes.
They are not restricted by the ban on smoking in public places and can be enjoyed in bars and restaurants a factor which has led to many US smokers ditching tobacco in their favour.
The spokesman confirmed the product was selling well since its launch last year.
