The discussion / debates / information & opinion sharing over in the Why Vapers are getting a BAD NAME. thread has been great!
But... it has raised a question in my mind: WHY do you want to vape in public?
And the reasons I've seen so far are far and away compelling & logical.
But I personally have a motivation for wanting to vape in public that I have not seen yet:
I want to be a catalyst to saving a smokers' life.
When I find something that either brings emotional based joy to my life, or in this case, opportunity to bring great & wonderful physical benefit to my life, I want to tell the world!
For example, the experience of being involved in singing & Barbershop Harmony and my HarmonyTown Barbershop Chorus has brought untold riches & joy to my life. I spread the news and knowledge of Barbershopping at every opportunity.
Vaping is a way to literally save my life, and enhance my life beyond my wildest of fantasy or expectations (figured I'd die next to the ashtray with butt in-hand),
Of course, we all have recognized & embraced this wondrous tool & technology - that's why we are here in the ECF universe.
But what about the other smokers? I care about them too - and not just the ones I happen to be related to.
Shouldn't I try and help bring this 'discovery' to those who don't know yet?
To those who may be being persuaded by, and held back by the lies/deceptions/misinformation/propaganda?
Yes, yes and ($#*%(*& YES
Many ways to do this, from blogging / social networking / real world networking / letters to editors-politicans-etc / peititions / bumper stickers, etc etc etc.

But one of the most influential & effective methods of spreading the word is by presenting opportunities for people to see, and to "vicariously" experience themselves. Influential & effective opportunities to learn & understand.
Vaping saves & enhances lives.
That is why I vape in public
How about you?
(ps - if you are about to suggest that I advocate for 'blowing clouds in faces', please do the adults here a favor and shut-up now & find somewhere else to to go. Thanks for your cooperation
