Nicostopper can help you quit smoking


If smoking de-addiction is one of your new year resolutions AND you are serious about it, check out the Nicostopper from Fagor.

The Nicostopper is an electronic cigarette dispenser in which you can fit a maximum of 10 cigarettes at a time. Once the ciggies are in, you program the intervals at which you would like to take a smoke. Not only will you be allowed to take the cigarettes out only at the pre-defined intervals, but, like a discerning grandmother, the Nicostopper will also flash “self-help” messages each time to make you feel guilty as well. The trick, of course, lies in sticking to the device alone to dispense your cigarettes. And we're hoping that the $300 you would have to shell out for it might be a good enough incentive.

I distinctly remember hearing, about 30 years ago, that the then Soviet ruler Leonid Brezhnev owned such a device that had been specially built to his specifications

Yeah, anyone got a smoke? Wow, I hope they make a million from this.


does it play mp3's too?


No Gadgets in this world can help you to stop smoking unless you want it. I stopped smoking 8 months back after telling myself that I wont smoke again in my life,its been a 13 year long wait. Its your will power,your subconscious mind and strong mental attitude which will help you to quit smoking. Dont go by your doctor who says that quit smoking in stages...he is actually making you his patient for life.

Quit Smoking - Throw that pack out of your life and nothing else.

I'm having my own struggles with quitting. If you'd like to follow my progress I'm keeping a log at newyearsresolutionsblog.com. I've posted a couple of articles there that you might find helpful, funny or interesting.

As for this product, do they make them so that they will give you a shock when you try to take the cigarette out? ;-)
