Has anyone thought about adding a red, glowing tip to the cigar to simulate the glow of the lit cigar?

I'd like to enhance/boost/thicken the smoke effect in the attached image - i.e. make the smoke more pronounced - WITHOUT creating any artificial smoke in PS).
you CAN'T thicken it without adding more 'smoke' pixels. you could only enhance what's there as far as hue/saturation/translucency/lightness and so on. so, if you want to remove that restriction of 'without creating any artificial smoke...', you could then thicken.
