I’ll be going over the different types of e cigarettes that I’ve tried, and giving my reviews. I have created this site because I love e cigs, and have decided to share my experience and different findings with electronic cigarette brands to help you work out which will one could be the best for you.
- E Cig Reviews by Kacey Jones
I’m Kacey(the guy in the picture), and I smoked for many years, then I gave up for 17 years, and about three years started again. Now that sounds nuts right? Well it certainly feels a little crazy.
Anyway, I guess that could be considered nuts but I am very addictive with almost everything I do. And maybe you will be able relate to that.
And as a smoker, I am the kind of person who likes a strong rich cigarette taste, and that’s just the way I like it.
Which brings us to electronic cigarettes…
I found out that a of the few people around me had started using e cigarettes, and enjoyed them. They are cigarettes smokers just like I am, and enjoy it. Most of the people I knew who had used them had turned to using the same e cigs every time, just like with thier cigarette brands, they had tried other brands of e cigs in the past, and had found a brand that they said gave them a good experience.
This was the main thing that stirred my curiosity: that these people I knew. who loved smoking, as I did, really appreciate these e cigs.
What Really Made Me Take The Plunge?
- How much can you save ?
Yes, that’s it, what you see in the picture here..
You see, I realise that everyone has their habits and why judge, and for me one of them was…I’m addicted to my cigarettes, and wasn’t really looking to quit, or reduce or anything, I just enjoyed the smoking habit.
Then someone brought it up to me, when I was going over my budget, and said: ‘hey do you know that these eCigs just cost me cents every day rather than dollars!!.’
So I asked her what she meant, and she said: ‘less than 50 cents, maybe less than 25 cents even’.
Well at that point I realised, whether it is 25 cents a day, or closer to 50 cents per day, here I am paying $16 a day for a pack of my favorite brand of ciggies.
Then I saw that even if I liked them only a little bit compared to cigarettes, then I would be able to reduce the number that I smoked and save some real cash if I enjoyed them enough to get that fix. So I decided to try them out at least. I chose the Green Smoke Tobacco flavour, my mate’s e cig of choice, and the favourite ecig for many smokers and I got the regular tobacco flavor because I didn’t want the dessert flavors, or some of the other flavours you can get, as I liked my rich tobacco flavour hit.
Wow, I liked them, I was amazed. And I immediately cut back on the amount of real cigarettes I was smoking, and I just switched back and forth between the e cigs and my cigarette brand, and she really was right, it was so much cheper, especially when you move on and refill your own with e liquid. (In fact you can refill most brands, so it’s very easy to save money – there is a video on how you can refill them here on the V2 page).
So Is The Cost Of Smoking Your Primary Motivation To Try?
I suggest heading over to http://bullsmoke.com and try the starter kit for only $29.95 (it could cost you over $50 to get an equivalent kit just elsewhere). So why not head over to http://halocigs.com or http://v2cigs.com and try some refill liquid so you can refill your own e cigs. (Watch the video how to refill e cig cartridges here).
It is pretty cheap so you might want to give both a try to see which you like the most, and even try a couple of different tobacco blends (for the tobacco flavours I suggest the Halo Tribeca or V2 Red). Two bottles will cost you less than a carton of normal cigarettes, and so the cost per day is less than $1, maybe quite a bit less depending on how much you vape.
Update for Decemberber 2013: My friend has now been converted to using V2 E Liquid, after buying her own favourite brand for more than a year, she now loves the V2 E Juice.
So, there you go, that’s an intro to e cigarettes. I’ll be discussing more specifics on this site in the future, about brands and more. So I’ll be experimenting with some different brands and coming back with reviews.
