Their not a bad idea.
Frankly in terms of the things that I used to help people stop smoking.
A -- is as a tool for getting people off tobacco.
Which is it can beat and -- look nicotine number one there's some reasons people flocked to nicotine in terms of increased energy focus.

Bridge for people okay because it stimulates the smoking experience that you just -- something very interest nicotine is universally.
Condemned it is so bad -- You just said it -- it it aid's focus.
Attention on something.
Energy and combat depression you mean there is something good to be said about nicotine.
Those things in life have a darkened alike saw.
-- -- and so here's the thing on nicotine itself just like caffeine.
It can be useful to people it does affect -- transmitters and that's why people flocked to cigarettes along with the hand motion.
And the fact that it is focusing for them -- standing often doing nothing standing outside doing nothing but smoke that cigarette -- can even.
He had a look -- decreased stress maneuver for people to go outside and do these things.
I think the and it does it in much less dangerous fashion.
For instance the cigarette you mentioned that that company that was here yesterday.

The drug that I use -- -- -- -- attitudes coughing and drug put them on a you have theme it is a -- right absolutely absolutely endless and a lot of people rely on that.
They used to condemn -- these to condemn coffee now -- funny as all kinds of health effects chosen sometimes there's some wisdom.
To people saying you know what I think I need I feel ten times better with that.

No no the gentleman who is on the -- -- -- -- 995.
And you get the equivalent of two packs of cigarettes.
And this is by the way this is cigarettes will attack this industry right because they don't wanna see this -- -- buying into it.
-- they -- I don't know if you're buying into and I think that's a good thing I've always wondered why don't they sell single cigarettes who is a year's time in my neighborhood.
Lou is that behind all that I saw fear or seek to make you package twenty cigarettes in one package and against doing the rational thing which would be to say.
Of course we're gonna sell singles don't confuse people won't -- the pact -- -- stop I think that you are familiar with -- Africa I think specific.
