    Abstract: An inhaler is provided for dispensing a pressurized substance, on demand, directly into the mouth of the user.

The inhaler may simulate a cigarette for the self-administration of tobacco or tobacco-like, or other substances, collectively to be referred to herein as nicotine. It is also contemplated that the inhaler may operate in response to other control effects exerted manually or by the mouth of the user, which control effects may be mechanically, thermally, chemically or electrically initiated.Embodiments similar in appearance and utility to cigarettes, dispensing tobacco or tobacco-like products may be termed "nicarettes" denoting the generically new form of tobacco they represent.
