Smoke break

Endit, a tobacco-free cigarette substitute, could be a significant help in keeping that New Year's resolution to stop smoking.

The device, marketed by Cirrus Healthcare of Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., can be found in packages of two for $5.99 at most drugstores, including Walgreens, CVS and Eckerd.

The re-usable plastic inhaler looks, feels, draws and even tastes like a real cigarette, but without tobacco, nicotine or smoke. That makes it perfect to use in the office to get the oral satisfaction of smoking without all the harmful side effects or the use of nicotine gums or patches.

Each Endit device lasts approximately 30 hours with normal use and is available in both regular and menthol flavors.
