New ‘Billy 55’ Green Cigarette Helps People Stop Smoking
World’s first all green cigarette allows people to replace smoking with a non-nicotine/non-tobacco option or to slowly wean themselves off of their nicotine addiction.
You can actually smoke the BILLY, and at the same time reduce tar, many carcinogenic byproducts, eliminate tobacco, eliminate nicotine, and use this product as a catalyst to stop being hurt by traditional cigarettes.
MARLBORO, NJ (PRWEB) JULY 14, 2015
Billy 55, the world’s first green cigarette that helps those wishing to quit smoking, today officially launched its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
Billy 55 green cigarettes are tobacco and nicotine free and are made of all natural green tea. The new smoking product is for two very specific groups of people; those who are looking for a way to eliminate their addiction to nicotine and those who enjoy smoking but are looking for another option.
For those looking to quit, Billy 55 is offering their customers an attainable three stage program which can help them to remove nicotine addiction from their lives.
“The three stage process includes breaking the physical addiction to cigarettes, easing the smoker’s dependence on nicotine and finally breaking the emotional connection that has been attached to the habit over the years,” said Ranko Tutulugdzija, founder of Billy 55.
The developers believe that these tea cigarettes will benefit those who have no plans on quitting as well by providing them with a non-nicotine/non-tobacco option that will cost significantly less than typical tobacco cigarettes. As of right now, the company plans on selling Billy 55 tea cigarettes for just $25 per carton, which is $40 less than the average cost of a carton of tobacco cigarettes.
"You can actually smoke the BILLY, and at the same time reduce tar, many carcinogenic byproducts, eliminate tobacco, eliminate nicotine, and use this product as a catalyst to stop being hurt by traditional cigarettes," says Tutulugdzija.
Tobacco cigarettes have over 500 additives, and with the additives over 4000 chemical compounds are released by burning a tobacco cigarette – 69 of those compounds are carcinogenic.
“But, the most deceptive and powerful agent in tobacco cigarettes is nicotine,” added Tutulugdzija.
In order to help complete this project, the creators of Billy 55 are looking to raise approximately $15,000 on Indiegogo. These funds are needed so that the company can create a large enough inventory to be able to enter the cigarette market and sell directly to the public.

About Billy 55
The BILLY is a tea cigarette. It was created by a 35 year-old acupuncturist as the green option in smoking. After failing in the clinic to assist every one of his patients with their efforts to quit smoking, founder Ranko Tutulugdzija, realized there had to be something more, because some people just couldn't quit. Even with the effort to break the physiological addicti
on in the brain through a scientific approach, so many times both Ranko and the patient would end in failure. Leaving more pressure and wasted efforts in trying to end their tobacco addiction. There had to be a better way... a method, a process, to buffer the power of nicotine and the control nicotine has on the brain and the smoker. That is how the BILLY cigarette was created.
