I'm only a 3 month vaper and am in country victoria but I have dropped the analogues and love my vaping.
I do have a complaint and am wondering whether anyone else in Oz is feeling the same way.
For some reason I feel like a bloody criminal if i dare to vape in public! Everytime i do I get funny looks meaning either.... OMG what an idiot or OMG Are you smoking drugs or OMG what the??? well at least that's the impression I get and no I'm not a paranoid person lol.
Even when down in Melbourne I didn't feel comfortable, and yet it seems our fellow US vapourers can comfortably do it anywhere.
I don't want to grab a mike, jump on a soap box and educate everybody, but really I wish we all could somehow get Vaping out of the closet. That's how it feels for me anyway. I find it amusing in one way as I used to get nasty looks if smoking outside at a cafe table etc and now that I'm vaping....I'm still apparently a social leper.
I'm proud of my vaping, I don't want to push it in peoples faces or anything, but would truly love for communities to understand what we vaping people are all about.
Now is this just me or does it happen to you?
How can we achieve this do you think?
