Why I Find Anti-Vape Fascists So Annoying: A Response To Carolyn Bointon


I came across this article by a lady who wrote a piece (more of a POS in my opinion) titled: Why I find vaping SO irritating.

Right from the start of the article, I can already get a feel of what this woman is about. She starts off by saying:

THERE is a fairly long list of things that make me grumpy – people eating with their mouth wide open, chewing gum blobs discarded on the pavement, politicians who claim expenses for cleaning a moat.

Well, sorry!!! You must be a perfect little angel that brings smiles and cheers to everyone she meets! I wouldn’t want to know what else is on your long list of pet peeves.

What we are dealing with here people is a social Nazi who holds others to her own personal standards. Smoking not being one of them.

Before smoking was pretty well banned from, well, everywhere, you used to smell the vile lingering stench of a thousand fags wherever you went.

I guess her ignorant little brain can’t differentiate smoking from vaping. She goes on saying:

But several times this week I have walked past people vaping, and some of the smells are just as obnoxious as smoke was.

Carolyn, vaping is not smoking. But how would you know? You’ve never touched a cigarette in your life. Because cigarette smoke smells nothing like vape! All you know is smoking, and anything that resembles it, is evil. Forget that these people are trying to get away from the very thing you despise which is smoking.

And it’s hardly a cool look, is it? Stood with an electronic gizmo clamped between your lips, chuffing away like an old steam train.

People I know who vape could care less about a look. This is not a fashion statement or some poseur hipster sub-culture some of us are doing. Vaping is our way of getting away from smoking.

If your social fascist mind could recognize and see the bigger picture, rather than condemn something you know nothing about but only because it offends or annoys you, then I’m sure you would appreciate vaping a little more.

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!
