Smokers' lock technique (unofficial method of using a locked automatic dispenser to taper off)

Posted in Hints and tips 17 Jun 2016

I have made a You Tube video so people can see the pros and cons for them selves:-



Lock your tobacco up in an automatic pill dispenser to limit the number of cigarettes you have access to, and put the key in a time lock box. This way you can choose a reduced amount of cigarettes ahead of time and stick to it, as all your tobacco is locked away and only dispensed once every now and then, you set up to 6 a day, then reduce it week two down a bit and so on.

Please Note: The items I used, and access to the items is NOT “INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH” far from it, so may not hold up during prolonged tampering.
