Re: Vaping

Posted on Mon, Jun 28, 2010 at 11:06 AM

It's unfortunate that we live in a society where new ideas/inventions are more often shunned than embraced, in the beginning. The outcome is almost always rage & indifference, as I have seen here in this section. Vaping is not for everyone, just as cigarettes aren’t. However, why not embrace a technology that has the potential to save 450,000 lives a year, not to mention those affected by second hand smoke? I have been smoke free for almost a year, thanks to this amazing invention. I am a healthier person because someone had the tenacity & vision to look past the cigarette stigma in this country & offer a better alternative. Addiction & dependence are not reasons to ridicule others or poke your nose in their business. While I agree that vaping should not be banned indoors, I also feel that it is about respecting others. Seeing as how it's water vapor that is expelled from e-cigs, would you also complain about someone boiling water in your general area?  Furthermore, people like you instigate intolerance and ignorance. To those who find vaping so offensive, I’d like to volunteer to buy you a pack of cigarettes in an attempt to calm you down and shut you up.
