|Tracy from Newbury, NH reviewed Bedford Slims model 'Menthol' on May 18 2012:|
OverallI started using Bedfords to quit after smoking half a pack daily for 7.5 years, and I'm truly shocked at how well it's been working. I've been using it for about three weeks now, and not only do I NOT want to smoke tobacco again (I last tried a normal cigarette about a week and a half ago and found it absolutely repulsive), but I'm not really becoming addicted to the Vapourette in its stead; I seem to be weaning myself off of its compulsive use somewhat naturally.
Value vs. Cost
That said, I don't plan to cut the Vapourette out completely. I have a major oral fixation (hence my smoking habit), so I'd still rather puff on a Bedford than smoke tobacco or eat more food or chew on a pencil. I've also always loved the social, conversational aspect of stepping outside for a cigarette with people, so the Bedford is perfect for that, too. It also tends to draw positive attention from the shiny green LED and attractive black plaid pattern.
I use the 12mg nicotine menthol, which is enough to keep cigarette cravings well at bay. It also has a very pleasant minty taste, kind of like smoking a stick of gum. The vapor itself is nice and thick and a lot of fun to blow smoke rings with. Compared to the other e-cigarettes I tried, the Bedford is much, much richer and more flavorful.
