The 2008 Christmas must-have?

I was hoping to be able to review the e-cigarette this weekend, but mine is waiting in the local sorting office until tomorrow morning. I'll try it in the office tomorrow and report back.

Yes, I did say I'll try it in the office. And on the train. And in the restaurant and a few bars. For those of you who haven't heard of this gadget yet, it's a smokeless nicotine inhaler that's supposed to mimic a real cigarette; the nicotine is delivered in a vapour that's supposed to feel like real smoke. But which is entirely legal to 'smoke' in places where burning tobacco has been banned. The little capsules come in various strengths that equate to real ciggies.

The great attraction is cost. Each cartridge costs about 56p including postage and is equivalent to 15 - 20 normal ciggies. No excise duty, see. Yet. And you can even get a little USB charger to recharge the batteries in the office.

Very keen to hear your report Mr R, have seen the things advertised but not heard of anyone who has taken the plunge.

Chantix, the medicine manufactured by Pfizer Incl. is meant for triggering off smoking cessation and as it is an FDA approved quit smoking medicine, you can administer the anti-smoking drug without any hesitation and successfully get rid of nicotine addiction. However, significant chantix tidbits available at http://www.chantixmagic.com clarify that the medicine is meant to be taken only after getting hold of a Chantix prescription from the doctor.
