Did you smoke real cigarettes on a routine basis, before you started vaping?
Some people fear change due to the unknown. It shouldn't be a big deal though. If it turns out to be a big deal then you might choose not to vape around her. Really your doing better for yourself and your the only one that needs convinced of that in the end. Good luck.

Sometimes a little compromise works wonders
Unless you are younger than 18 then your Mother should mind her own business. Some people can't be flipped. Try selling a conservative on a liberal issue or vice versa for example.
Bottom line. Her opinion is her problem not yours. Unless she's paying for your supplies!
She's right. And will be right as long as cigarettes are killing people.
We're not smoking cigarettes, but we do make the act of inhaling, and blowing out stuff, pretty damn sexy. And yummy
Back when i took psych 101 in college I remember something I heard that was common sense but also pretty profound. It's that all of us, on some level, are seeking parental approval for our entire lives. It may have been Freud who came up with this or perhaps Abraham Maslow, I can't recall now. In any event, the fact that you are somewhat worried about this is enough in my view. We owe some respect to our parents. At least most of us do.
At the same time, you've got to pursue you own happiness. The next time she brings this up, I'd say something like " I'd just prefer to not discuss it" and then maybe change it to a positive conversation.
People die from smoking yes, people die in car accidents too and no one is proposing that we quit driving. What they do is make seat belt laws so driving is safer. Vaping is a safer alternative.
