Congrats on making the effort to quit!
I LOVE Blu-Cigs! I owe my quitting of the ciggies to Blu-Cigs and Vivid Vanilla pre-filled cartos! I will always remember that.
There is nothing wrong with Blu-Cigs. It's great that they are working for you. Wish you continued success with them. I still have my starter kit and fire it up every once-in-a-while when I need extra stealth.
There are alternatives available that some prefer. Battery life is a big issue for me, as well as being tethered to a charger all day, every day. If they can solve that, I could easily see myself as a more frequent customer. There are less expensive alternatives for Blu-Cigs cartridges and ejuices as well. That said, they have a place in the arsenal, and I always like to have a pack of Vivid Vanilla or a sampler pack of refills on hand for emergencies.
Blu-Cigs certainly worked for me, and I will never forget them as the tool that finally helped me quit analog ciggies......
Thanks guys for all the great responses. I know it's inevitable that I will want something cool and much better in time. I emailed Vape NY and Spike wants me to try an ego mini kit an egoJ. its $30 with an $8 bottle of juice free. I did however invest in some Johnson Creek juice and a syringe tube thingy that cleans and re-fills old cartos. Time will tell
First welcome! Congratulations!
Nothing wrong at all with Blu. Rather comforting to know that regardless of where I am I always have a pack of prefill on a store shelf as a $15 back up.
As to being anti-Blu due to being purchased by Lorrilard, I don't get it. Lorrilard is actively pursuing the ecig market.. They've made ecigs widely available at far less than mall kiosks pricing. And they are at least attempting to normalize ecigs. Also (unless something has recently changed) Jason Healy (former president, current consultant) has offered up time and again that although he doesn't actively defend bottled eliquid he doesn't campaign against it either. Blu may not be our BFF but that doesn't make them our enemy.
I like many others quit smoking using blu, but also ended up moving on fairly quickly. Use whatever works!
How do they know this? Could it be they've lobbied, i.e., bribed FDA officials?

Congrats on quitting. I started with Blu and it just didn't cut it for me. It took me 4 fully charged batteries to make it through 1 carto. And I was vaping one to one and a half cartos a day.
I recently sent my Blu starter kit off to another member that wanted it for his mother. Yes, I paid $60 for it, but it was collecting dust and $60 is a small price to pay for possibly extending someone else's life.
I will give it to Blu for starting me on my journey to quitting. But with as much as I vape, Blu just wasn't enough. If Blu works for you, stick with it until it no longer does. But if you find yourself wanting an analog again, it may be time to upgrade.
Whatever keeps you off analogs and is working is great no matter what anyone says. I, like most people it seems, started with a blu and personally just couldn't hack it. It did however open the door to the possibility that I did not have to smoke and I didn't have to give it up thru means of a patch or a pill or a gum that made me feel sick and didn't replace the enjoyment I got out of smoking.
If it gets you by, by all means keep it up!!!
For me, after I Blu myself, I went right back to analogs for a year until I found an ego, and now an Itaste MVP and a protank and a wishlist of other "toys" I want now.
