Being a devout smoker of almost twenty years, I first dismissed the idea of Ecigs as being utter nonsense. That was several years ago when I first heard of them. Had I known then what I know now, I'd have converted then!
I have been using the E-lites cigarettes for close to two months now and have gone from 20-30 Lambert & Butler per day, to ZERO regular cigarettes. I just quickly estimated a rough idea as to how much I could have saved had I changed sooner...I then proceeded to cease chasing an answer, out of fear of suffering a shock induced anyurisum! Lol
Do I now consider myself to be a non smoker? ummm... Maybe not in the strictest sense of the term. You could say a born again smoker! :) who happens to be a lot healthier and much better off financially.
The 'cig' device itself is very simple to use and manufactured to an incredible standard. The filters (which contain the good stuff!) come sealed individually, I assume to prevent the contents drying out?! I quickly learned to best method to getting close to the approximate '40' cigs per filter claim. I find the trick is to take much smaller draws for the first 10 'cigs' or so. This seems to be because the contents are much more potent to begin with. I increase the length of the draw as I go.
For me, smoking was about the 'kick' in the back of your throat when inhaling. I didn't think it would come from this kind of cig. But it does, and it emulates the feeling almost perfectly. I couldn't believe it! I actually took too big a draw on it the first time and it even made me cough a little lol! (remember...shorter draws at the start of a new filter!). The smoke/vapor is very realistic, so much so that you can actually blow smoke rings!!!! I know right?! They really are THAT good!
I now have two friends who have gone from regular cigs to E-lites (one of which has now fully quit all together by using them as a cessation tool) and my brother smokes considerably fewer regulars and now uses E-lites. I understand they may not be for everyone but they are certainly working in my circles!
Why not try buying an individual starter cig (I'm pretty sure they sell one) if you don't think it's going to work for you then contact me and I'll buy the battery from you lol. Then you'll recoup some of your expense and have lost little! :)
If you're still reading, congrats lol... To cut to the chase...
E-lites ...... YES!
