Anti Smoking Video Game from Alan Carr

Learn to Stop Smoking...With Your DS!

As you may already know your Nintendo DS can do a lot more than entertain you. It helps increase your brain power, get you fit and in shape, and now it may soon be an aid in helping you to quit smoking!

If you've tried to quit before, you can probably tell me a dozen ways you've tried (and maybe failed) at finally kicking the habit - like puffing away on that high tech cigarette - but Alan Carr would like you to give his new video game a try. The game to be released on the DS, will be based on Carr's self help book titled Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking, and today, Ubisoft announced that it will produce the game and release it to the masses this November.

Ultimately I'm a little confused as to how the game would work, but since playing my DS distracts me from my commute, I can see how it would take your mind off the urge to light up. Would you play an anti-smoking video game to help you quit?

I'm not a smoker but I'm happy there is a fun way for people to quit. I llike the boo/game combo. Hope they will markt more things like this in the future. Like self hypnosis!

I'm a smoker, and a DS addict, so I will probably have to give it a try.

as a non-smoker, i'm not sure how this works, but i'm all for people giving it a try if it'll help them.

I swear that playing wii helped me quit smoking. I was addicted to zelda instead and didn't want to stop playing to go have a smoke.
