The Cigarette Counter. ‘Smoke Less Live Better.’ 

So peeps, do you think this will work? Do you? How long before it’s ripped from the packet and thrown into the nearest sock drawer in a fit of guilt ridden pique? 48 hours? Agreed.  

 The purpose of the Cigarette Counter is to give smokers a tangible way to control their habit. By pushing the button and viewing the number of cigarettes we’ve smoked already, we become more aware of what we’re doing! Most of the times who smokes does so in an automatic, non-conscious way, often without control.


  • I did some research: the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center utilized a similar program of gradually reducing the number of cigarettes smoked, to let the smoker get used to a new habit. According to the results of the study, smokers who followed a scheduled reduction program before quitting were more than twice as likely to be non-smokers after one year, over those who had quit smoking cold-turkey!

    I personally think this nice little tool can be not only very helpful but also something that we might really consider like a friendly reminder that we use for a long time (or actually: hopefully for not a long time, if we manage to quit smoking…). Is there a healthier way of smoking? I mean, smoking 3 cigs a day is definitely better than 20..
