|Liz from Port Hope, ON reviewed Apollo Cig model 'Extreme' on April 13 2012:|
OverallAfter 55 years as a career smoker ( pack / day) I was resigned to the negative aspects of smoking and had no desire to put myself through the agonies of trying to quit yet again! I had tried several times for a few weeks to 18 months with the "help" of nagging, gum, patch, hypnosis, etc. but each time ended up deciding that it wasn't worth the misery. I read about electronic cigarettes and did some online research. I had no desire to stop smoking but thought that perhaps e-cigs might help me get through those times when I was going to be in the homes of non-smokers (and the weather outside was frightful!). My Apollo Extreme Starter kit arrived early Dec. I was pretty skeptical, but willing to give it a shot. To my utter amazement I realized several days later that I had almost forgotten about my regular cigarettes! My new e-cigarettes passed with flying colors, the in-house tests with family and friends, While impressed, they were understandably skeptical about my longer term success. I, too, was somewhat doubtful and delayed writing a testimonial until I was more confident. After 4 months, I was caught short when my order was delayed (through no fault of Apollo) and I broke down and bought a package of cigarettes. YUK!.......I couldn't wait for my Apollo e-cigs to arrive!!!!!!! Now I am determined to build up a supply so that that can't happen again. I still can't quite believe how easily and comfortably I have become a non-smoker and am finally enjoying all the benefits that people used to tell me about which I certainly never experienced during my previous non-smoking episodes. I am spreading the word!
Value vs. Cost
I had also ordered another brand in order to see if I could eliminate the import issues that seem to crop up occasionally, but I really didn't like them as much as the Apollo product.
Apollo's customer service is excellent........quite extraordinary! I am definitely a FAN!
Thank-you, Apollo..............Liz Hathway
