    Great so now there is a ' more healthy ' way to get your fix. Excellent - but does it carry the same kudos of puffing away on a real cigarette. Can kids show off to their friends ? Can they say - hey - have one of mine ?


    I sincerely hope this works as addiction is a terrible thing. Recent surveys show that children start smoking as young as 8 years old. Surely it's time for some serious education for children rather than giving them something else to ' puff ' on. But where would be the profits in that. I do like the idea of a vegetable chew enhanced with vitamins though - just without the nicotine. Great for those on a diet !!!
