Since I quit smoking and started vaping in December of 2009, I have been posting the updates to my progress on Blu Cigs Electronic Cigarette Review, but since the article was getting a little long I decided to put the updates on their own page.
At the time of this writing, it has been almost 2 years now since I kicked the tobacco habit, and I’m still amazed that I have not smoked (or even wanted to smoke) a single cigarette in all that time. I never imagined being able to give up that ball and chain, but I certainly did!
I will continue to post updates here every few months.
***UPDATE – 4-28-2015***
5 years and 4 months and still counting. Haven’t had a cigarette in over 5 years – hard to believe. I couldn’t have done it without my blu’s.
***UPDATE – 5-9-2014***
Still hard to believe, but 4 years and 4+ months after giving up cigarettes, I still have no desire to go back to tobacco. Still sticking with my blu’s, and still loving them!
***UPDATE – 9-9-2013***
3 years and 9 months without a single cigarette. Still have no desire to smoke!
***UPDATE – 1-7-2013***
3 years and 1 month without a single cigarette. Still loving my Blu’s!
***UPDATE – 4-12-2012***
2 years and 4 months now, and I’m still vaping (and loving it!). Still haven’t had one cigarette in all that time, and I truly don’t miss them at all!
Blu has made several changes (upgrades) on the product since I started using them, and they just keep getting better and better!
Haven’t tried their new ‘Peach Schnapps’, but I love the ‘Pina Colada’.
***UPDATE – 9-4-2011***
This month marks 1 year and 9 months since I smoked a nasty, stinking cigarette.
Since my last update I had a computer crash and lost my Stop-Smoking meter, but I know I have ‘not smoked’ a ton of cigarettes and I have saved quite a bit of money.
***UPDATE – 4-25-2011***
Well, as of today, I have been smoke-free for 1 year and 4 months.
Savings: approximately $3,244.
Life saved: 8 weeks, 2 days and 12 hours.
Cigarettes ‘not smoked’: 16,853.
Again, all of this is calculated by the SilkQuit Stop-Smoking Meter.
***UPDATE – 11-13-2010***
Unbelievably, I have now been smoke-free for 10 months and 2 weeks. That is a savings of approximately $1,885.50 while adding 5 weeks, 3 days and 18 hours to my life. Cigarettes ‘not smoked’ – 11,130.
***UPDATE – 7-18-2010***
It has been 6 months and 3 days now since I smoked a tobacco cigarette, and I have saved approximately $1353.00 according to the SilkQuit Stop-Smoking Meter (link below). I have also ‘not smoked’ 7032 cigarettes in that time and I have added 3 week, 3 days, and 10 hours to my life.
***UPDATE – 4-30-2010***
I have been smoke free now for 4 months, and I have saved approximately $760.00 according to the SilkQuit Stop-Smoking Meter. I have also ‘not smoked’ over 3,900 cigarettes in that time and I have added 1 week, 6 days, and 14 hours to my life.
