You need to give up coffee. Whether it's because of the numbers creeping up on the scale because of all those Frappuccinos, your wallet getting thinner thanks to Starbucks, or your new teeth-whitening regimen – you. must. stop. This is going to be really hard. And no one understands! But before you barricade yourself in your bedroom and start blasting Harry Nilsson, there is hope.

Le Whif Coffee is a small inhaler that yields an espresso shot worth of caffeine in every dose – each puff even smells like coffee. There are eight doses in every inhaler, and they retail for about $7.20 for a pack of three. That's 24 caffeine fixes for about the price of two grande mochas. And as an added eco-friendly bonus, the inhaler's tube is biodegradable.

Getting your Le Whif Coffee fix during the morning board meeting may turn a few heads, but it could be an effective way to curb your habit. Find it at Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC, Cardullo's Gourmet Shoppe in Cambridge, or online here. And if anyone looks at you funny for puffing away, just glare at them, and take another hit. When you get into a public scuffle, you're going to need all the caffeine you can get.
