Canned Heat

Just when you thought business people were running out of ideas for products to help you quit smoking, a Dutch company has come up with a product called "liquid smoking," that it purports can fend off the desire to smoke cigarettes. The new product is being launched in Great Britain, where a recent smoking ban has nicotine lovers craving a fix.

Supposedly the product works not with nicotine,"but a potent mix of roots from South African plants, which has been used since the 14th century by bushmen."

Why is it that every miracle cure has to come from ancient bushman or an Amazonian tribe? Can't they just admit it came from a lab? Anyway, critics are already up in arms about the products packaging, which resembles a Marlboro package, but at least one smoke-free individual is welcoming the new product.

Bruce Watson, a freelancer for Walletpop.com who says he kicked his cigarette habit with the help of absinthe, writes that his "own experiences with herb-infused liquids makes me think that this beverage could offer a workable solution for a lot of nicotine
addicts."

The only danger is that liquid smoking could turn into a new liquid addiction. What do you think? Will you turn to a can for your nicotine fix? [The Daily Mail UK]
