Linkman stop-smoking gadget

Share

Speaking as someone who has quit smoking, oh, five or six times now, the Linkman is an interesting gadget (with a terribly meaningless name) that will probably only work for people who can come up with free ways of disciplining themselves.  Basically, you press a button on it, and if it lights up green, you can light up, and if it lights up red, you have to wait.  The idea is that it extends the pauses between cigarettes until you forget about them completely.  $80.  Here’s a cheaper tip: make and drink a cuppa every time you want a cigarette, and only smoke it if you still want it afterward.  If you’re just a ‘chipper’ (under 5 cigarettes a day) that’ll cut you down.  But if you’re a chipper you probably already know better.  [GT]

  • Cool gadget! One more gadget that is cool too for those who smokes or smokes occasionally or is trying to quit. The USB-ashtray. It is a portable gadget that comes in handy for every smoker, takes care of the health of other people around, and protects computer from harmful smoke that can clog up the fan and other interactive hardware. Just have a look at http://cigoutlet.net/cigarettes/ashtray.html
