“You smell bad, Mama.”

That’s what I love about kids, they haven’t been programmed to sugar coat things, they’re just plain honest.

The PIT had been nagging me for years to quit smoking. She was like a live in PSA and it was fucking annoying. Accurate but annoying.

As some of you may recall, I left my beloved menthols in 2012,


because I gave my word….THIS year would be THE year.

No more fuckin around.

I knew it was going to suck and quite frankly, I was not pleased.

I’d been a smoker for 18 years. It’s my thing. I smoke.  Because I WANT to.

Ridiculous I know but it’s what I wanted.

I warned those around me to armor up because shit could get ugly without my nicotine.

I almost gave myself an anxiety attack just thinking about quitting and then I needed a smoke.

A friend suggested I try an electronic cigarette, one with different levels of nicotine and try to step down, ashless.

I stopped by my local Walgreens and picked up a disposable blu e-cigarette in menthol.

You can find blu electronic cigarettes in over 60,000 locations just by going to blu’s store locator at

I was rather surprised to find that I didn’t hate it.

It was menthol, it felt and tasted like a cigarette but with no ash all over the place and no smell.

Plus, I didn’t have to go outside and freeze my ass off to smoke. I could smoke at my desk!

Obviously, this is a sponsored post….a rarity around here but I actually AM using and enjoying the product so why not?  They sent me a starter kit and it was like Christmas morning! (Starter kits are actually quite reasonable considering the price of a carton of cigarettes.  Kits start around $50.)


2 rechargeable blu ecigs, endless flavor cartridges….

Pina colada, Peach Schnapps, Java Jolt, Cherry Crush and a ‘pack’ that I LOVE.

The ‘pack’ not only makes it feel like I have a pack of smokes, it charges them too! I haven’t charged it much with the pack however; the USB charger is perfect for me!

The pack perfectly stores my blu buddy as I now call it AND holds up to 5 more cartridges so if I wanted to, I could carry a variety of flavors at any given time….and I DO. My latest fav is Cherry Crush but I also like the menthol and pina colada flavors so I keep them on hand just in case I change my mind, just because I CAN.

The flavors come in different strengths of nicotine so I could step down if I wanted to, and I have. I’ve kept my word to my kid and am smoke free. I keep my blu buddy around for those “I need a fucking smoke” moments that are really just all in my head.


Like I said, this is a sponsored post and in no way shape or form am I recommending this product to help you quit smoking. I’m simply saying it’s working for me. There is no healthy way to smoke, don’t be stupid, there is however a perfect alternative.

If you’re going to have the habit, why not lose the ash and stink?

Need more info? Perhaps from a hott guy? Here. You’re welcome.

    I have faith in ya girl. I too used the little blu devil to wean my way out with help of the Chantix, my xanax and some prayers to good ol’ Mary Jane… all because I pinky promised my kids in the middle of summer that I’d quit by Christmas. Now you know as a mama pinky promises are UN’F'ing breakable and damn it if they didn’t remember…. Smoke free since 12/31/2010.

  2. As someone who watched both his parents die literally gulping for air after 50+ years of smoking, I applaud you for loving your daughter enough to do this for her, as well as for you.

    Good luck, and you know where to get a hold of me if you need to vent. ;-)
