    Default Lets talk!! What to say?

    Hi everyone,
    so I know most of you probably get the same kind of questions or trash talk about vaping from your friends until they realize how simply awesome it is.
    Okay so when my friends say why would you want to smoke a fake cig? that thing looks like your smoking who know what in public?
    Or something to this effect?
    i normally say dude don't hate because I get my nicotine fix with out smelling and polluting the environment with smoke and cig butts!
    Or why would you want to smoke that when you can get your fix without smelling like s%#*! So on and so forth

    but what can you really say to make them want to switch within a reasonable amount of time say a few sentences
    or what do you say kinda like what I do?
    Wondering what else to tell people

    better yet what do you tell strangers that say stupid crap? If that ever happens with weird looks?
    I normally get a good for you as walking or a big smile, thumbs up etc

    lets hear it

    I've vaped with my SVD in bars, in the car, walking down the street etc and never really had an issue. The few that have asked me what it was that I was "smoking" on were all cool with it and asked me how the nicotine hit was compared to a cigarette. I basically tell them it's as strong or weak as you want it to be. I tell them its a vaporizer, about the flavors available, where to pick one up and even let a few people that I know take a few hits on it so they know what to expect.

    Most of the time I'll have an RBA or Protank II on the SVD rebuilt with a better, more accurate coil and cotton so they get some real flavor as opposed to tasting silica wick. I'll then tell them the difference and why I chose cotton and how easy it is to work with.

    Just say with the best poker face you can muster .,"Well your _______(insert husband, wife,girlfriend, boyfriend) certainly did mind it last night." and keep on walking. Some folks you are never going to make understand.
    Yes (insert elected offical's name) I VAPE and I VOTE. Remember that in November.

    Ah, CreepyLady, might want to edit the above. Drug talk is not allowed and don't want you to get in trouble


    To the OP, I've been lucky so far. In the year I've been vaping, I've not run into jerks. Most people know that it's an ecig, even though it doesn't look like one. Most times I get 'Does it work?' I say: oh yeah! A year cig free!!

    Make a positive reinforcement handout and have a few on hand when you know when your in situations where you will get garbage like that and simply hand them a folded piece of paper. Spread the good word silently. If they refuse then they are not worth speaking to, clearly! Works for me.

    OMG ha thank you! A co-worker who is older that I have assisted with a transition to vaping says that is what it looks like (i have no idea?? LOL) and My best friend says I am the AIW catepillar. Was trying to post a morning funny - whoops! Edited!

    On a more serious and less joking note - I have been educating - most people at my company have inquired with pure curiosity and intrigue. I have PIF a few set ups and some liquids and passed on vendors that are trusted etc. I am creating converts left and right just providing the correct answers to their questions and resources (like ECF ). Most comment that is smells good and then ask what it is and I think the main question I get is "what is in the liquid" "are the liquids safe" etc. More than anything I have found people associate ecigs to only the cigalikes and disposables. I have found that knowing there are affordable "bigger and better" options is a huge plus to most of them!

    my never smoker hubby calls it a pipe I think because it is different and delivers a drug (nicotine) they think they feel the need to clever, NOT! Bwahahahaha. Funny thing, he directs anyone on Facebook that talks about quitting smoking to me.

    The best resource for educating the uninformed and misinformed is CASAA. They are also vapers only support against those who want to ban/severely restrict our ability to vape.

    Have you taken the time to join AND support CASAA??? I suggest you go to the CASAA web site and get some of their nifty hand-outs on vaping. And everyone needs to educate themselves on the latest studies on vaping. The most current is from Drexel University in Philadelphia and is on the CASAA web site.
