Cigarette Holder Shows Smoking Kills

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Smoking cigarettes is like putting a gun to your head.

That’s the idea behind the Smoking Gun, a sterling silver, gun-shaped cigarette holder which forces people to inhale their butts through the gun’s barrel.

Designers Liz Kinnmark and Kegan Fisher are the brains behind the Smoking Gun, but Fisher, who’s struggling to quit herself, says her own product hasn’t yet shot down her horrible habit.

Though the puffer’s pistol is meant to help smokers kick the habit by forcing them to stare down at the scary symbolism, it’s having the opposite effect with many hip, young smokers.

Kinnmark explains, “It’s sort of trendy. People think it makes them look cool or hard. I guess it’s that whole thing of people thinking guns are cool. It underscores just how bada■■ you are.”
