A German brewer has created a frosty lager for smoking cessation. Each can contains 6.3 percent alcohol by volume and drinking three cans of the stuff, called NicoShot, is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes. I think the implications are obvious: smoking makes you skinny and beer makes you fat. So if you add the two together, you get to your ideal weight.

According to a press release, NicoShot is not necessarily a cure for smoking, but it can help smokers make lifestyle changes “without having to walk out of the bar for a quick smoke to deal with sudden withdrawal symptoms.”



NicoShot contains a shot of natural nicotine, equivalent to a few regular filtered cigarettes. One 250 ml can of NicoShot contains 6.3 percent alcohol by volume. The press release notes that three cans of the brew are comparable to an entire pack of cigarettes.



“Similar to nicotine gum, NicoShot is considered nicotine replacement therapy that provides a steady, controlled release of nicotine,” notes the press release. “It can be used to relieve withdrawal symptoms at the beginning of quitting, to relieve urges from cigarette smoke (cravings) while quitting, or to avoid relapse months after quitting when a new stress or situation may trigger a strong urge to smoke.”
