  • I'm watching too, my mom is looking to buy them. They're sold out everywhere locally.

  • My husband has one, he still smokes but is using it to help him cut back and is replacing much of his regular smoking with it, I'm not sure what brand it is

  • I don't have a good one (a friend bough a cheap one and gave it to me), but I'm probably going to order the Blu cigarette. I've read and heard really great things about it and it's not super expensive. They have several flavors (regular tobacco, menthol, cherry and java I think) and each of them come in different nicotine strengths so you can step down gradually to no nicotine (they even come nicotine free).

  • DH bought one when we took a road trip with my parents and he couldn't smoke in the car. It was pretty cool so i thought i'd try it. It tasted much better than a gross regular cigarette but it still made me choke. I guess that means it was working :)

  • my friend has one, she says the only drawback is you can only take 3 hits per minute, because otherwise it would be very easy to over-dose on nicotine. i think it would be a great step in the quitting process, and best of all, it doesn't have any of the nasty chemicals in it that cigarettes have. its just pure nicotine, which essentially isn't the killer, it's all the shit they put inside cigarettes that kill.

  • I just recently quit. I used the BLU starter pack. I have been completely nicotine free now for two months.
