People Ask The Dumbest Questions To People Who Vape

I work in a place where there are a lot of smokers. Nine times out of ten when I step into the smoking area, I get looks from other smokers when they notice this ridiculous looking device I use to smoke. Here are the top three most asked questions I get from them:

1. How ya’ liking it? (or How is it working for you? Does it really work?)

“I like it very much.” Works for me, I haven’t smoked in a couple of months now. Not bad for a former half-a-pack-a-day smoker. It’s a whole lot better than trying to quit cold turkey.

2. Does it taste like a cigarette?

I flat out say no. Nothing tastes like a real cigarette. At first, I thought vaping tasted like smoking air, with a hint of flavor (especially since I started with a zero nicotine juice), but now I realize it tasted like nothing because I was used to inhaling all those nasty chemicals that are in a cigarette.

3. How much does it costs?

I say 20 bucks. I try to get them to buy a cheap starter kit they could find at a smoke shop. That’s basically how I started. If they do like it, they could progress and buy better, more expensive kits at a vape shop. But just in case they don’t like vaping, they wouldn’t have had to dish out a lot of money on their first kit.

Honestly, I get tired of answering these same questions everyday. I feel like a salesman pitching a product, when I am only trying to justify why I vape. Sometimes I just want to end it by saying, “None of your damn business! Let me vape in peace!”

But I realize that I can save someone from putting themselves in danger from consuming cigarettes. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a doctor or specialist, and I am not making any medical claims with this post. I sure know however that it is a much healthier alternative to smoking.

I try to be more enthusiastic about answering their questions. I put myself in their shoes, back when I was still smoking and I would see a person vaping right next to me. I had so many questions I wanted to ask. Let’s remind ourselves that we were once that person asking stupid questions.

I am not trying to sound moralistic but I believe it is my duty to present myself as a responsible person who vapes, and should answer inquiries other people have for me about vaping. I love vaping! Is it true? I do, I do, I doooo.

Seriously though, I care for this little movement, which is another reason why I started this blog. Thinking back on why I didn’t start vaping sooner than I should have, it was probably because I was not sure about it. Now, I am truly confident that I did make the better decision. If it takes me a few minutes of my time each day to share what I know about vaping to others, then so be it.

I am not an expert either, I know there are a lot more people who know way more than what I know. Which is why I am also learning new things about this beautiful thing called vaping. So for everyone out their reading this, let’s spread the good news that their is a better way than silly patches and overpriced gum when it comes to quitting. We now have vaping!

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!
