Nicotine beer in the pipeline

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au...E23109,00.html

From correspondents in London
October 03, 2005
A GERMAN company has come up with a novel way of beating bans on smoking in pubs put the nicotine in the beer.

A new beer, known as NicoShot, is undergoing testing in Germany with hopes it can be moved toward approval in the next few months.

Each beer contains three milligrams of nicotine and a 6.3 per cent alcohol reading.

Its German maker, Nautilus, claims the beer is designed to help smokers quit the habit rather than make the drink addictive.

"While NicoShot can lessen cravings, it is not a 'cure' for smoking," Nautilus said.

"But it can help you make changes in your lifestyle without having to walk out of the bar for a quick smoke to deal with sudden withdrawal symptoms.

"Over time, when you are more comfortable being a non-smoker, the use of nicotine beer can be reduced and then stopped.

Wow, I'm sure that will taste like the worst drink ever.

Great, so now I can (drunkenly) pick up a nicotine habit by drinking the wrong beer?
