The following is concerning Electronic Cigarettes, so please only read this and enter the giveaway, if you are of age in your area to buy cigarettes (18+ years in some areas, in others 21+).
I was surprised to hear the benefits of people using the electronic cigarettes, I didn’t realize that you can use them in public with no risk of others having the problems with second hand smoke, all but airplanes I guess currently allow them. Of course this doesn’t take away the risk of an idiot, like me, seeing a lady in the grocery store smoking away and not knowing about their being products like these out there, it took the checkout person to tell me what it was and about them to realize that those are publicly acceptable all over the place. A nice plus for those people who can’t do without their smokes for any period of time.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to try Electric Cigarettes from Electric Cigarettes, Inc. I chose my trial from the options for the Duo Pro Express Starter Kit
The package arrived to my front door in a very timely manner, and the kit I received was well cushioned in the shipping box. The shipment was accurate, although the labeling doesn’t seem to show the flavor of the contents, and compared to the picture above, mine was with only one battery (which is the white part) but the filter area that contains the flavor and strength does show the strength.
In the Duo Pro Express Starter Kit, you have a choice of strengths of Nicotine from Extra High (24 mg) to No Nicotine (0 mg) and flavors to choose from for instance Cherry, Chocolate, Tobacco and more. I chose the No Nicotine & Cherry Flavor, and my husband and I are not sure but mine doesn’t taste much like cherry, it’s so light but tastes to us like chocolate, perhaps they have only certain ones that they send out to bloggers so I cannot say what exactly I have here. Although I must admit that the Extra High Nicotine has some fascinating flavors to choose from like Waffle & Strawberry and more… I would have loved to try Strawberry but I didn’t want the Nicotine.
While I tried my choice I found the flavor was light yet a pleasant flavor, not sweet like you’d imagine, and yet enjoyable. When I tested the cigarettes out, I found that I don’t take a big drag on the Electric Cigarettes so I don’t see much of the mist from my “smoking.” Now as for my husband, he enjoyed the flavor and I had a big laugh as I saw the all the mist (that looked like smoke) escape his lips. The end of the Electric Cigarette lights up as it has a LED light and it automatically turns on and shuts off as you take drags off from it. The batteries appear to last a good long while, once fully charged.

All in all, I think that the Electric Cigarettes would be a great way to quit smoking, I would start off with the mg. equivalent to what you would use in the Patches (since the patches have several strengths to choose from, I believe they have 3 strengths) and with each order of refills I would go down one notch in strength so you are slowly cutting out the Nicotine. Sure these are safer then the actual cigarettes but there are still dangers in the Nicotine and it will be cheaper in the long haul if you quit all together.
I have looked over the site for Electric Cigarettes, Inc and I have also seen some other great options, fun flavors, fun colors, ones that you can refill at home (perhaps saving you more money) and accessories for your Electric Cigarettes.
I wish to thank Electronic Cigarettes, Inc. for intrusting me with this review and giveaway, and for their patience as my life has been in turmoil for some time now with all that has been going on with my husband being assaulted. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding!
Now for the Giveaway, you have a chance to win the same kit as what I received, in your choice of Nicotine Strength and Flavor.
