I smoked tobacco cigarettes for over 30 years, then one day I came across the disposable Blu electronic cigarette and I tried it. I used it for several hours before I realized that I had not smoked, or had the desire to smoke a tobacco cigarette. So I ordered their starter kit and started using it when it arrived. That was towards the end of February 2012 and I have not smoked a cigarette since. The first few days I would get the urge to smoke a cigarette, but I would just puff on the e-cig till the urge subsided. I have since switched to more advanced ecigarette hardware because of issues with Blu’s batteries and cartomizers, and I have not ever regretted switching to ecigarettes. Since I’ve switched, I’ve noticed an improvement in my sense of smell and taste. I don’t get winded as easily, and have come to realize just how awful tobacco cigarettes smell. I no longer wake up in the mornings and have a coughing spell that lasts for several minutes, and I feel so much better overall since I quit using tobacco cigarettes.
