this could almost be a rant but im going to try and not make it one

the stigma im a smoker of some kind just trying to get people to call the cloud i blow out vape and not smoke is imposible

and getting stared at like im spreading the plauge iv seen people light up in a resturant get less attention

why any non smoker/vapers plz tell me

now i got that out of the way ish

all you vapors

what about vaping at work or in stores do you belive you should be alowed to

there are risks tho minor to others tho nothing is truly known

only example i have is taking a dry hit and basicaly blowing it in someones face but a risk is a risk

ill start with myself

i do not vape at work or indoors except home and when i can get away with it the "stelth vape"

im fine with this being with the other smokers at work reminds me why i dont smoke

would you quit easyer if you could vape anywhere ?

also wana trow in the part where tho bad studies it seems flavoring is large contributer of all bad chems

im not going to post links for that since the study just sorta dry fired the hell out of a ecig and posted results

kinda like the old smoking machines yes smoking is bad but if u take a puff every second tell the filter is burnt its worse
and no human can do this normaly

i dont know about u guys but getting my vape to hit 10 times at 3-4 second hits for 5 mins i couldent do it

i cant even take a 3-4 second vape at all thats what "cloud chasers" do

and lastaly this is more of a rant but nicotine in the juice is posion most say thing i hear it more and more

last time i checked posion is in the dosage kinda like dihydrogen monoxide lol

so what to all u non nicotine users think and vapors lets discuss the truly unkown about how vaping can "kill" non users

I think vaping is a good way to quit smoking and demonizing it is silly.

The real question on my mind is why do you hate punctuation and paragraphs? What did they ever do to you?

I smoked for 7 years, nearly a pack a day for 4 years. I started vaping 2 years ago. Not only am I healthier and can run without choking myslef to death but I can smell and taste food again. I don't vape around my son, just in case, that is, not blowing it directly by his face, but in the same room is different. I Know I am still addicted to nicotine as I crave it when I wake and after I eat or while on the toilet and such. But that is my fault for not trying to lower my limit of nicotine in the juice. I always go 12-18mg nicotine and haven't had the balls to lower it. But I know that since there is zero carcinogens I am doing my body a favor by not smoking and using vapor instead.

My boss is happy for me to vape in my office, the office manager loves the smell of the sweety flavours and has no issues.
I vape at work regularly and have no complaints from anyone, few friends who smoke pot complain about it believe it or not.

Wouldnt vape infront of customers and have been told off for vaping in front of kids

I was told by many to give up cigarettes so switched to vaping and those same people complained that I should quit vaping, so I did, went back to smoking. Back to vaping now, cant keep people happy unless you become their little drones

Its healthier and doesnt have the side effects.

Eh, I only do it at home or in public restrooms. If I'm in a store or a club, I'll step into the restroom and take a few puffs when I feel the need. I just don't think it's common enough around here for people to know I'm not smoking if they see me so I just don't do it.

The one exception was a strip club my wife and I just went to a couple of weeks ago where the manager was walking around with an e-cig dangling from his mouth, puffing away. I knew the guy so I was like "Well, alright" so I went ahead and puffed away. So many fog machines there, anyway so...

I have never done reliable research on the vaping subject, I've never smoked in my life, and I even turned down an offer when someone at work once offered me a "hit on his vape pen".

I guess I'm a victim of my own down to earth and open mind (a highly dangerous weapon in today's society, and incomprehensible to the average sheeple), so with that.... I will say I 100% believe vaping is the best thing to happen to smokers. It cleans up the air for the rest of us, it helps them get their nicotine fix without sucking in burning carcinogens, lowers their risk of cancer... What the hell more can I say? The stuff that they breathe out is a ball of mist that evaporates.

I think they should be allowed to smoke their vape pens ANYWHERE. I've been in the presence of multiple people vaping and you know what's hilarious? I didn't notice a damn thing. Now, replace those vapes with cigs and we'd have a different situation. Nasty smoke making all our clothes stink, my throat sore, eyes burn and water, etc. AND the sad part would be that those two guys would have been more socially acceptable upon first glance if they smoked cigs instead of vape pens. Why? For some reason people instantly look at vapers like they're "bad people".

I guess it rests my case of humans doing what they do best, fearing and acting aggressively towards, you guessed it, the new and unknown. Change is great ain't it?

I don't have a problem with vaping at all, but I get annoyed when people are doing it almost out of spite just cause they can. Example I was walking through Walmart the other day and there was a young guy doing it as he walked through the electronics department. I don't have anything against it, but I also don't have anything against beer, but I don't wanna see you crack a cold one while buying your produce.

You make very valid points about vaping. I'm just asking for a few periods and paragraphs. If you read a lot you've certainly come to recognize the basic format. If you're really suffering from literacy issues I'd be happy to point you toward resources, but this post looks like lazy posting from a mobile device.

I enjoy vaping and so does my wife, we both quit smoking after over 40+ years.

I vape in public and try to educate when I can, Just don't say the word "smoke" when talking about it.

Some people just have closed minds when it comes to anything new, no matter what it is..

I guess if I couldn't see the vapor I'd probably have less of a problem, but for me it was more just the attitude of the kid. I understand its not second hand smoke but it just bothered me for some reason.

Your wife probably has a sensitivity to PG. Often if you switch to max VG it will solve the problem.

oP I only cape where I would smoke for the most part. I do inside my own house, but that's about it unless other people are doing it or smoking regular cigs. I stealth vape on occasion too I guess, but it's pretty rare.

I've gone from about 1.5 packs of American Spirits down to a few in the morning, and cut my nicotine level from 18 to 6 (3 at night) in maybe three months without actually trying. Smell better, feel better, save money (kinda, I have some fun stuff) and am becoming less dependent every day. Fun little side hobby too, building coils is enjoyable.

I don't think other people should be subjected to it if they don't want to, so I just sort of assume unless I can ask it's not OK. It's certainly not 100% safe, but my understanding is that secondhand vapor is pretty much harmless, and gaping is probably a couple hundred times safer than smoking at least.

I recently had my first experience with vaping. I met a guy who used it pretty much constantly. I thought the smell was fine and I didn't think it bothered me at all. BUT, I can see how it would bother some. In fact, while we were sitting next to each other, chatting, I started coughing, and I couldn't figure out why. He moved to a different spot and I stopped coughing.

I would never demonize someone vaping. Their choice. But if it bothers other people, I think "clean air" trumps vape. If you're going to vape, make sure you're not forcing it on others.

Emory University Hospital considers Vaping a non-smoker non-tobacco user.I have been told that vaping was the best way to get away from ...analog cigarettes
. If it is ok with some of the best specialists in the world....why not with everyone ? It is called CONTROL . People today only think about how much control they can force on other people. Dam , leave me ALONE...

I started smoking 6 years ago at 26.
I can smoke a pack a day. But i picked up a vaporizer and some 18 mg vape and over night went from a pack down to 5 smokes. to help a bit further i also started champix.
I took the champix for 4 weeks, had some pretty amazing dreams, and got down to just a smoke in the morning. But i still craved the vape. I should have got non nic. Juice.
One day i was out of town and forgot my juice at home. So i ended up grabbing a pack off a buddy.
Once i got home i figured id grab some juice and pick up where i left off.
Nope! now i smoke half a pack a day while vaping in between.

But still given er hell and trying to cut down. Hopefully i will be off the cigs soon enough.

To each his own, my friend !

I just bought a ego one mega... love this thing and I never vape before. I had a friend Mary, and she was a control freak if I abused her relationship (not physically).

This vape is helping me from being with Mary, though I know it's not healthy, I have a very strict vegan diet and take care of my body.

I'm not a mindless and lazy toker like the majority that give smoking (anything) a bad name..

Vape is nice, I like it, don't give a flying chicken Wong what people think of me doing it

I addressed the topic in each post

Vaping is in my opinion far better than smoking and I dont mind people doing it around me

Its just water vapor

I think doctors should be encouraging vaping like they encourage nicotine patches and gum

Its not like im nitpicking minor grammar issues

Im pointing out that the op is hard to read because its not structured

Im not asking for much

How does my response look with no punctuation and no paragraphs

Should we do this across the board

If nobody points it out will anyone try to improve
