With cigarette smoking quickly becoming a very unpopular thing to do in many social circles and coupled with the many restrictions being placed upon smokers nowadays concerning where they can and cannot smoke, many smokers have begun turning to what is known as the electronic smokeless cigarette. Not only does electronic smoking provide smokers with a cleaner, less harmful, more convenient alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes, it also happens to be much cheaper.
Anyone who can’t – or doesn’t want to – stop smoking, can still enjoy the habit without having to worry about the damaging side effects that are produced by the additional substances found in the tobacco used in regular cigarettes. No more tar, carcinogenic additives, or dangerous secondhand smoke with the electronic cigarette. By eliminating tobacco and using vape juice instead, smokers are able to enjoy a safer cigarette with fewer health problems.
Electronic cigarettes simply deliver inhaled doses of nicotine to the smoker by way of a vaporized propylene glycol/nicotine solution that is inhaled (referred to as ‘vaping’) just as you would inhale the smoke from tobacco cigarettes. This nicotine is stored in ‘flavor cartridges’ and when subjected to an electric charge is transformed into a vapor.
Because there is no smoke or smell associated with the electric smokeless cigarette, electronic smoking – vaping – may be enjoyed in restaurants, on public transport, in shopping centers, and on airplanes, in most cases. They may also be safely used within the home, without subjecting children, pets, and loved ones to dangerous secondhand smoke.
The electronic cigarette is becoming increasingly more sophisticated and easier to use. They are also considerably cheaper to use than regular cigarettes, and there is no mess, no ash, no stained fingers, and no holes burnt in your clothes or carpet from accidentally dropping a lit cigarette.
One very popular brand of electronic smokes, Blu cigs, is proving to be one of the top-selling brands amongst cigarette smokers. Some of the things that make Blu cigarettes stand out from many other brands of e-cigarettes include their presentation, their clear and concise instructions on how to use Blu cigs, and the ease with which smokers can use the packs.
Their attention to detail puts blu cigs a step above any other electronic cigarette company out there. For example, the ability to be able to use either a wall outlet or a USB connection to charge your pack and batteries is one detail that makes it even more simple to use Blu cigarettes. The LED light on the end of the battery will even flash when you are overdoing it on the nicotine and also when you need to switch batteries.
If you have tried any of the other methods of trying to quit smoking, you probably know that every single one of them leaves you craving cigarettes like crazy. I smoked cigarettes for more than 30 years, and for many of those years, I smoked 2 packs a day. I’ve tried the gum, patches, Chantix, and quitting cold turkey – all to no avail. I have been using Blu cigs for a year, and I am honestly shocked that I have absolutely no desire for a cigarette. In fact, I actually feel like I’m still a smoker because of the nicotine and vaping, which is so similar to smoking.
The biggest difference now is that I don’t have to plan my entire life around where I can go to smoke, I don’t have the shortness of breath I had before, I don’t smell like an ashtray, and I’m saving about $190.00 every 30 days. Can anybody say “NO BRAINER”?
Even though you still get the nicotine with your Blu cigarettes (if you choose to), I can’t tell you how wonderful it is, after so many years of dragging around that tobacco ‘ball and chain’, to know that I am not starting every day of my life off by assaulting my lungs with tar and other deadly chemicals.
What All Is Included And How Much Do Blu Cigs Cost?
In addition to the exclusive ‘Blu pack’, the Blu starter kit comes with everything you will need to begin your vaping experience right away. One battery plus a spare are included, as well as one atomizer and a spare. You also receive one wall charger and one USB charger that can be used to recharge your battery via your computer or laptop.
Your first variety carton of 25 cartridges (the equivalent of about 150 cigarettes) in the strength of your choice, is included with your kit – for free. You can choose whether you want your cartridges to be full flavor, light, ultra-light, or even non-nicotine.
When it’s time to order more cartridges, you will have a choice of Cherry Crush, Magnificent Menthol, Java Jolt, Vivid Vanilla, or the Blu classic tobacco cartridge, which all taste great!
At the time of this review, the cost of Blu’s starter pack is $69.95 – a steal compared to the cost of tobacco cigarettes – and the replacement parts are inexpensive as well. Each carton of flavor cartridges (equal to about 150 cigarettes) costs $25, the chargers and exclusive packs are $9.95 each, and the batteries and atomizers are each two for $9.95. Blu offers free shipping and a 30 day return policy.
On a personal note, at 2 packs of cigarettes a day, I was purchasing a carton every 5 to 6 days at approximately $40.00 each (cheap compared to prices up North, but still expensive). That adds up to between $200 and $240 per month. Since I started Blu cigs one month ago, I have used 2 cartons of cartridges, one of which came free with the starter kit. Even if I had purchased both cartons, that would be a total of $50. plus tax.
