Sounds like Zac Efron has taken his smokin’ hot image a little too seriously.

Page Six reports that Zac was smoking an electronic cigarette at a party for the new Richard Gere movie, Arbitrage, in New York City on Wednesday, September 12.

“He was puffing on the [electronic] cigarette with friends in a back corner booth,” says a source.

OK, so he’s smoking a SmokeStik e-cig, meaning he’s making the responsible decision to quit, right?  Well, at least he's trying.

“Then he went outside and walked down the block to sneak cigarettes,” the source adds.

Zac, what you do to your lungs is your business, but kick the habit — and for real, this time — for the sake of your health and that beautiful skin!
