If you have been following this blog for a while, then you know that I do not share a lot of information about my other half...my "partner in crime" and soulmate.
I have good reasons why I prefer to keep Him a mystery - mainly because I am selfish and do not like to share him, but the biggest reason is that He is not about the blogger/online life. He loves his privacy and I deeply respect that.
Although that last statement is true, there is one aspect of His life that I am going to share with you today and that's: He is a semi-heavy smoker. Of course, this is a habit I was well aware of from the very start of our relationship, but what I wasn't prepared for was the fact that I would eventually get annoyed by it.
Yes, extremely...annoyed. Here's why.
My biggest pet peeve of His smoking habit is the odor that's left lingering behind. If you live, or have lived with a smoker, you know exactly what I am talking about. The odor is similar to that of a dirty old ashtray filled with empty filters and ashes.
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying the He leaves all his smoking 'ish around the house. Not at all. He does his best to keep everything downstairs in his man cave, but the issue is: I can still smell it.
Since all my previous attempts at helping Him curve his habit have failed miserably, I decided to take another approach:
I convinced Him to try blu PLUS+ e-Cigs.
blu PLUS+ is an electronic cigarette. I gave Him the Xpress Kit which includes 2 blu tanks, blu PLUS battery and a USB charger. I'm going to guess that you know what a USB charger is, so let me break down what the blu tanks are and how the blu PLUS battery all works.
Step by Step tutorial on putting the blu PLUS+ eCig together
1. blu PLUS+ Xpress Kit
2. Once opened, inside the Xpress kit are the 2 blu tanks, blu PLUS battery and a USB charger.
3. The 2 blu tanks (this is what holds the flavor) + blu PLUS battery (this is the part used to inhale the vapor)
4. After separating the 2 blu tanks, peel the back of packaging to remove the tank.
5. Upclose look at the blu tank
6. On the top of blu PLUS battery there is a small "peel here" sticker
7. Remove sticker to expose the top (this is where you inhale the vapor)
8. The blu tank has a tiny rubber casing that you remove to expose a screw
9. Taking both the flavor tank + battery, screw these two together to assemble the eCig
10. The assembled blu PLUS+ eCig
11. As you inhale the vapor, the e-Cig will have a bright blue light.
As you can see, putting the kit together is simple and straight forward, but is blu PLUS+ worth it?
Yes, it most definitely is.
According to Him, although using the e-cig is not exactly the same as smoking his traditional cig, it does get "the job done". After experimenting with the Vivid Vanilla tanks that we were given, He wanted to see if there were other flavor options to choose from, so we decided to check out the blu PLUS+ website to see what they have to offer.
After noticing all the products with different nicotine strengths and flavors (these are available online only), He chose the Magnificent Menthol in High strength, since this is the option most comparable to what he was smoking in the past.
In addition to being able to customize His e-cig, he quickly noticed just how convenient blu PLUS+ is. The battery is rechargeable - it can be plugged in whenever it runs low or charged overnight. The e-cig is also travel friendly in the sense that He can take it with him everywhere he goes. If He needs to, he can also have his e-cig charging in the car waiting for him after he gets off work.
And of course, the best part of blu PLUS+ is that it is 100% odorless!
Since there is technically no "smoke" with this e-cig, the stale smell of ashtray is no longer in His man cave or the vehicles we drive. When He smokes, all you can see is the vapor that is blown out.
Overall, I have to say that I am impressed with blu PLUS+. I know that I am not the smoker in the family, but I know He feels the same way (even if he chooses not to confess it!).
At this point, even if it has only been a few weeks, I am very hopeful that this alternative to traditional cigarettes will help Him curve his habit eventually overtime... that's all this lady can hope for.
