Nicotine-Free Cigarette Look-Alike?

I recently quit smoking. Yay! For my Cruella De Vil costume for Halloween, I've already got a cigarette holder and I'd like something to put in it that, you know, looks like a cigarette. The thing here is that it absolutely, 100%, no wiggle-room cannot have any nicotine. What are my options here? [more inside]

Do you have any good methods for "hacking" nicotine-reduction insomnia? I'm quitting smoking, and I can successfully handle the withdrawal during the day using meditation, exercise and willpower.

Nicotine gum for a light smoker shortly before his first marathon?

Light smoking, nicotine gum, and marathon training: I smoke 3 cigarettes a day, and am very set in this habit so it's hard to cut back. I'm training for a marathon that is soon.

Limiting my smoking

I'm an on/off again smoker. At 'worst' I smoke a cigarette or two per night. At best I go 3-4 months without smoking at all. The rub is that it'll get to be around 11 PM, and I'll want one, and if they're available, I'll smoke one. If they're not available, I'm not about to go out and get them. Can the hive mind think of ways to keep them available but not smoke nightly? Anon because several people who read MeFi don't know I smoke. [more inside]

Nicotine bingeing

I can go all day without smoking a cigarette if my mind is on something else, but when I have them I go through half a pack to three quarters of a pack a day. Is this normal? I know that some people lack a way to properly break down nicotine in their bodies, requiring less smoking per day. Does this have something to do with it?
