This would be a feature in mobile gamified coordination and scheduling where the regualted smoking of ciggarettes is incorporated into more healthy habbit formation. So this feature would schedule you to smoke a ciggarette just after running 3 miles so that you would start to associate the endorphin release with the healthy activity, and then gently phase out less healthful habbits by substitution.

       I'm guessing, [JHC], that you don't smoke.

       Maybe, but using this method he could soon start!

       Yes, I dont smoke as of this morning, after a two- week return to smoking, that immediately followed 15 years of abstinence, which immediately followed 15 years of 1-4 packs a day of chain smoking. I am planning on not going back to it. But the two-week return to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day reminded me of how efficient they are at sucking endorphins out of your system. I didn't have a need to eat or talk to anybody, or do anything else except for smoke cigarettes for the last two weeks. It was blissful. Of course I cant feel my throat anymore. And as of last night I was no longer getting any nicotine buzz, only a scratchy, asbestos-like feeling in my chest after each excruciating drag.   

       If only we could regulate and schedule that endorphin dispersal some other way, I mean besides getting organized, educated, healthy, finding a wife, having 2 kids and going to church. Maybe incorporate electronic cigarettes into cellphones?

       You of all people should know that church is massively over-rated!

       No, it's ok, I started smoking again.
