|Doreen from Reading, PA reviewed blu cigs model 'Original Start Kit'' on January 13 2012:|
OverallI bought the Blu starter kit for my husband for Christmas. This man has smoked for 35 years and has tried everything - patches, gum, Chantix - nothing worked. His mother died last year from smoking, after being on oxygen for several years. She still smoked right up until the end. Too bad these weren't out in time to save her! It took my husband two weeks of using the ecig before he gave up the Newport's completely, but I am happy to say that he smoked his last one of those on New Years Eve! I can't even begin to tell you how happy that makes me! :) It'll be two weeks tomorrow and this is the longest he's ever made it so far!
Value vs. Cost
I quit 7 years ago on Super Bowl Sunday and just out of curiosity, I had to take a puff when the starter kit arrived. I could not believe how real it tasted. I nearly coughed my head off! LOL. Yep, I'm done smoking for good!
Anyway, I want to just say thank you BLU, for making a product that finally works! I did a lot of research before I picked this brand and I think I picked the best brand. I hope everyone tries these e=cigarettes and whole world quits smoking. I'm tired of smelling the stench that follows these people, not to mention the way you feel after a night out with a bunch of smokers. It's hard to believe I used to smell that bad myself... yuck!
The cartridges are a little expensive, but they seem to be lasting a long time. It's been several weeks now and he's still on the first pack. He probably would have smoked close to a carton by now I'm sure... so it is economical too. Apparently, with the ecig there isn't a need to keep puffing away like you would on a real cigarette until it's gone. A few puffs and my husband says he's good to go! I'm thinking he probably also loves being able to smoke in the house again after 17 years! I still catch myself about to yell at him when I catch him puffing out of the corner of my eye. Old habits do die hard! Haha
