    Give her a huge 'bakky-free hug, a peck on da cheek and get on with your life. You'll never convince her at this point!

    If I'm awake, I vape!
    No 'bakky' since Apr 14, 2011, after 45 years of 2 PaD <insert Snoopy dance here>

    All of our feelings, opinions, and desires are based on our individual Life experiences. Clearly, there's alot of fear/pain with hers. Try to understand she cannot hear when it comes to this subject. As she is someone you Love, it's best to respect her deep-rooted opinion by neither arguing with her, nor doing it in front of her...let it be. Unless of course, you're into the whole rebellion/drama thing! Lol.

    I completely agree.

    every time someone tells me vaping in some way makes smoking ok, i just reply with the same thing. vaping is pretty much antismoking, to be completely clear, i feel vaping is similar to the antichrist of smoking. it's not smoking, and the lethal aspect is largely removed. hopefully one day, it will replace smoking.

    With all due respect.... I think your mother's opinion is that of an ignorant twit.


    My advice would be, don't bring it up and just don't do it around her. She may(slim chance but possible) warm up when you tell her how much better you feel overall, health wise but that could be quite a while. Doesn't sound like she would change her mind though in all honesty.

    Take it from me, parents just don't understand!

    In all seriousness, just let it be. Your mom is going to be, who she is going to be. If it is not this, it will probably be something else. Moms are never really going to be completely satisfied and their intentions are generallly good; but, if you vape in front of her, you will be asking for a less than pleasuarble vaping experience. Then again, maybe she will get used to it and let you be...doubt it. Lord have mercry! Just thinking about how my mother was with me regarding smoking makes me almost want to smoke.

    Wait....So vaping is like smoking with a seat belt on?

    With all due respect? Granted, you did say "opinion", but that is hard to see "your mother" and "ignorant twit" in the same sentence. I guess we are entitled to our own opinions, right or wrong.

    p.s. frosting, your avatar is sexy!

    "Mommy doesn't like me vaping"
    "Vaping makes me look cool"

    -No mention of age.
    -No mention of any prior smoking addiction.

    This appears to be an underage youth who has started vaping to look cool.
    -This is one of the exact reasons why some groups are lobbying to ban e-cigs.
    -Picking up a nicotine addiction to look cool is insanity.
    -Vaping is "harm-reduction" not "harm-less", if you want perfectly safe move to the country side and be one with nature.

    Seriously, WTH?.
