    Default Is Ed Still Smoking?

    Sorry if this has been discussed, I couldn't find a thread on it, but in all the performance and interview footage I've seen surrounding the release and tour so far, I haven't seen Ed smoking and I'm wondering if maybe he gave it up.
    yeah.......i'm still here.

    That was as of 2009. But that was 3 years ago. Quitting smoking might also explain the few extra pounds. I for one sure as hell hope he finally quit. I figured he never would though.

    Haven't seen a cigarette in his hand, in a picture for a couple years. It's a safe bet that he's not. (crosses fingers)

    He was seen smoking an e-cig at the cafe wha show and someone said he has given up real cigs.

    Last brand he smoked was american spirits.

    Oh what the fuck let him smoke, who cares. The man is a recovering alcoholic, he's almost 60 years old. If he wants to smoke, fine, if he quit, that's great too.

    I posted this observation in another thread, but notice that in the few closeup shots of his pedalboard we have not seen the little metal bucket filled with sand for his butts like he had there on the last tour. Used to think it was cool to see the cig in his headstock, but if it means him potentially living longer and sounding better I'd rather that he quit.

    Yep, he's using the eCigs. Has been for a few months now. (How many exactly, I'm not sure, and it wasn't clarified)

    Yeah, I think it ceased being cool when he had part of his tongue removed because of it.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
