Question Cigar Smoke

I'm trying to make a character smoke a cigar, and I have no idea how to create the smoke. Any ideas?

Use a 2D fluid container or particles if you know how to handle them.
Good luck

I couldn't find any visor in paint effects shelf or the paint effects menu ...
EDIT: Never mind, I looked through Maya help and found it under dynamics > fluid effects > get fluid examples.
