Best luck to all those who want to get over smoking.
This was bound to happen

I've seen these sold at a kiosk in the mall. The sales people look silly sucking on a stick with a LED on the end. So far, I've never seen any one use these more than five feet from that kiosk.

I quit smoking in Feb 2003,
Do I miss it?
No.
Do I still get cravings?
Yes.
Have I fallen off the wagon?
Yes, but I got right back on.
It is a very tough addiction to break and the cig. companies aren't really helping. They were breeding tobacco plants to produce more nicotine and thus make the product more addictive.
I started when I was 10 and quit when I was 41.
Damage done?
Yes I am sure,
I have Asthma, and several other breathing problems.
They do seem to be getting better as I get farther away from the tobacco.
But some days.............
Ooh, I just need a smoke to clear my head.
Make the world seem better.
Get me away from the stupid people.

My grandpa quit cold turkey. He smoked 4 packs of Lucky Strike filterless cigs a day. In the early 80s he had a lung collapse and the docs said if he kept smoking he would maybe live 6 months. He quit then and there. And lived another 20 years.

I've never smoked a cigarettte. But everybody around me smoked when I was growing up. Nearly everybody at work smokes. Several docs are surprised I've never smoked because they say my lungs look like that of a smoker. I have asthma too.

I know someone very close to me that got hooked. She sent me an e-mail with a link to these. She was all excited, but I shot them down as not really helping her to quit. They just seem to trade the cigarette for this thing.
So for those that have read up on these things I have a few questions :
This thing is just like a cigarette, but just does not have the smoke right ?
What good is that ?
It's still going to get people 'hooked' and keep people hooked ..right ??
Is this thing disposible ? From what little that I read of it, it appears as if it can be refilled, but how many times ?
I admit I have not read up on these things ( Lazy, yes, but I also just despise anything having to do with smoking - to the point of not even want to read about them.

I don't think these are advertised as a quitting aid. It's mostly a way for people to stay inside while getting their nicotine.

From the Smoke Anywhere web site:
Quote:
Iím a bartender and since Iím the only one, Iím unable to take time to leave from behind the bar and go out to smoke. And when I get a craving for nicotine it doesnít go away. With NJOY, I can actually curb that craving and still function and continue working.
