I had done a true confession piece on Green and Smoking– no matter how much I try to quit, no matter how much I know it’s bad for me and the environment- it is the hardest thing I have ever done. The last time I quit, I lasted for 3 weeks and 15 pounds later, I was smoking again- which would I rather die from obesity or smoking or guilt from polluting the planet! Quitting is also compounded by my age (menopausal) and hormones. So what does a Tree-Hugging Person do?
Now there is electronic cigarettes from Blu Electronic Cigarettes . (I have not tried them yet) No tar, no tobacco, no ash and no smell and because it’s not recognized as smoking, you can ‘smoke’ them anywhere. Basically, Blu Cigs work with a small rechargeable battery and a replaceable cartridge that contains water, propylene glycol, nicotine, a scent that emulates a tobacco, and other flavorings exclusive to blu. When you inhale it activates the atomizer which releases simulated smoke that is actually water vapor. It even has a lighted tip!
All I can say- is the price is right- starting at $59.95 – which includes the following:
- 1 pack, holds 5 tips and charges your batteries on the go!
- 2 electronic cigarette batteries
- 1 atomizer
- 1 wall charger & 1 USB charger
- 25 cartridges in the flavor & strength of your choice (equals over 350 cigarettes!)
I am going to order this- it’s a huge cost savings- and hopefully it will help me quit smoking, save money and the environment at the same time.
