My husband and I have been smoking for too long...while I am always trying a new way to quit smoking, and often succeed, my husband has not been so lucky. And while I am able to successfully quit smoking, I always end up lighting up again once he has fallen off the wagon.
It's a horrible cycle!
So, last month, when I was presented with the opportunity to review South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes, I talked it over with my husband and we agreed that it was worth a shot! We've been using the South Beach Smoke starter kit for about a month now, and I wanted to share my experiences with you!
Now, while we all know it's best just to quit smoking period, it's easier said than done. Since I've heard from so many sources that electronic cigarettes are a healthier alternative to smoking, I did a little research and found that while the water vapor does contain nicotine, it doesn't have the tar and carcinogens that are in regular cigarettes.
While it is said that you can "smoke" your South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes anywhere - including indoors and at non-smoking events - I personally have only used them at home because I am so used to not smoking everywhere! My husband, on the other hand, travels to countries where smoking is so frowned upon that he has to leave the hotel property to smoke. Since he's been using the South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes, he smokes them wherever he wants - including in his hotel room!
What we like about South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes:
- They taste like regular cigarettes
- They are comparable in strength to traditional cigarettes
- There are two filters in the starter pack, so you can chose how strong you want your cigarette to be
- There is a convenient charger to recharge your atomizers
- It's so much cheaper
Each kit from South Beach Smoke is equal to about 7 or 8 packs of cigarettes. For me, they amount to about 10 packs of cigarettes because I usually smoke super slims, which are less than half the size of a normal cigarette.
The South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter kit - which is the one we have - includes:
1 Standard Battery - NEW SuperMAX Battery
1 Extra-Capacity Battery - NEW SuperMAX Battery
1 Portable Wall Charger
5 Large Nicotine Cartridges/Atomizers - Equals 7-8 Packs of Cigarettes (Choice of Flavor & Strength)
The South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter kit retails for $59.99 and you purchase it - or other kits - on SouthBeachSmoke.com.
My husband has been smoking the South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes and smoking a few regular cigarettes as well, and is down to smoking about 4 regular cigarettes a day now. He is slowly weaning himself off the regular cigarettes completely! I am going to be going back on Bupropion next week so that by the time he is exclusively smoking the South Beach Smoke electronic cigarettes, I will have stopped smoking completely.
Keep your fingers crossed for us, he is really liking the electronic cigarettes and I think that this time, our quitting is going to stick!
I received the South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter kit to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own!
