A New Cigarette Faux You

March 25, 2009 at 10:42 am Leave a comment

Japan is a nation of smokers. At restaurants, cafes, train stations, bathroom stalls — you’ll always find yourself surrounded by a handful of nicotine-addicts puckering up for a deep, long drag. Being the sole non-smoker in Tokyo, I got used to spraying Febreeze on my clothes after an evening with friends. The stench of tobacco was just a fact of life.


So it didn’t surprise me to find that a Japanese company came up with a cost-effective means of smoking — the super cigarette: an electric device that looks and tastes like the real thing and can save chain-smokers up to $800 a year. Special features include: a chargeable battery; an LED bulb at the end of the device that turns red when you suck in; and a smoke-producing cartridge that comes in different flavors like menthol, strawberry and cherry (Think hookah).


The amazing thing is that as much as this product seems like the real thing it doesn’t emit tar nor other carcinogens found in a pack of Marlboros. So along with saving money, it’s supposedly a good way to wean yourself off the habit. All this can be yours for only $120!


Of course if you know a smoker or two, you’ll realize that kicking the addiction is hard. Really, really hard. And especially in a country where many start smoking as young as 12, you’re gonna have a lot of die-hards yearning for the real thing. But who knows… maybe there’s a trick to this new-fangled pipe. Never know ’til you try, right?
