|James from Chandler, AZ reviewed blu cigs model 'Starter Kit' on May 03 2011:|
OverallI just got the Blu starter pack last week, and since then, I have had 4 whole real cigarettes, when I was close to a pack a day. This is easily the best thing to happen to my efforts to quit smoking. The problem with nicotine patches or gum is that they do nothing for the actual cigarette replacement. After a while, you really miss the feel of the cigarette in your hand or your mouth or the "smoke" that you're inhaling and exhaling. Blu is much more effective, because they've realized that being addicted to cigarettes is not just physical, but mental as well. I was a menthol smoker, and the "Magnificent Menthol" flavor is great. It's not over-powering. The vapor packs last a very long time. The first one I used, I used it for an entire weekend. The battery life isn't great, but it gives you two charging options: Wall Outlet and USB. And with the two sticks that come with the starter kit, you're set. Overall, Blu is really amazing. Yes, you're still going to have the nicotine, but you're not inhaling DEADLY CARCINOGENS any more, and that's what really makes this near-perfect.
