Blu Electronic Cigarette

Today I bought a Blu starter kit from sheetz for 70$. I smoke about a pack a day of marbrol gold special blends.
So far I like the Blu, I'm trying to cut back on spending money and in the long run these are a lot cheaper. The hit is about the same and the classic tobacco flavor is not bad at all. Anyone else tried these?

I used these to quit. I may be splitting hairs here, but something about the e-cigs seems sketchy.

Either smoke or don't smoke. All this in-between crap is just nonsense.

I bought one of those a few years ago. It has been sitting on my nightstand for about a year. I only use it if I am going to a poker night. It works for that but it's novelty has worn off. I was at a pack a day but I am now down to less than half that (unless drinking). I cut down more by only smoking outside, and hanging out with non smokers.

I use the eGO-C battery and 510 cartomizers. I order from Valuevapor.com or vapure because they're local in San Diego. I've tried blue and while the overall quality control is good, the batteries didn't last long enough and nor did the pre-filled cartomizers. In the end, the eGo-C setup I have now is much more cost effective.

OP, check out http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/ The NEW MEMBERS SECTION is very helpful.

I started on an expensive e-cig starter kit like the Blu's then went onto the eGo's. I'm currently using a Provari with a cartomizer tank...

i smoked for 17 years. 1-2 packs a day. Used a ecig for about a month. It became a hassle and not as fulfilling as the real thing. June made one year since I quit.

I used blu e-cigs last year while I worked. Stopped because I was getting addicted and when a man in Florida had one explode in his mouth.

The industry does not claim electronic cigarettes allow smokers to kick the habit, just that they are a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes because they have fewer chemicals, Kiklas said.

Not made to help people quit, just smoke safer lol

^^^ Yep. Appearently nicotine by itself doesn't give you cancer it's all the actual chemicals and the actual smoke itself. Who knows. They come out with new sh!t every year about what kills you and what doesn't. It always changes. I didn't switch to quit smoking. I switched because I couldn't breath anymore when I wake up in the morning. Just 2 days after switching I could already feel a big difference with my breathing. Oh and you don't smell of smoke. Personally I love smoking. But I like being able to breath more. LoL.
