I am a Vaper (happily) of two years now approx, for health reasons (I liked my smoke!). Lately, though... through experience, such as airports, pubs, café's, clubs, transport, aeroplanes - I am finding I am being refused permission to vape I feel this is unfair (Is it just me?) Vaping is NOT smoking!
I have health issues now, and DON'T want to be forced to stand outside and freeze to death (In winter) with the smokers (summer, I don't mind being outdoors).
I chose vaping as it was as close to smoking as I could get, (and for my health) but mostly because I COULD vape where smoking was banned, especially pubs etc.
The Sun newspaper did an article recently where a reporter TRIED vaping in various locations, and he was told NOT to do it, or PUT OUT of the establishments, EVEN after he explained vaping was not covered by the smoking ban. I think only ONE place allowed him to vape!
I love my vaping, but I am disheartened by all the negative reactions lately. Will vaping soon be covered by the smoking ban as well? Sometimes I feel as if I'd just have been as well sticking to the ciggies!
PS: On a recent bus trip, the driver and I BOTH had to vape outside!
What are other's experiences and views? Mostly looking for those who chose vaping, so that they could beat the smoking ban, not so much those who are happy to vape outdoors like the smokers have to do.
