I see a lot of posts about people vaping at places where it's not allowed and sharing tactics, techniques etc. as to not get caught, like stealth vaping. On the other hand, everyone wants vaping to get a good image and to be more accepted. This will not happen if we break the rules by vaping where it's not allowed, even if it's stealth vaping because there is always a chance of getting caught, after which we will all get branded as ''those'' vapers. I don't see why it is so difficult to go outside at a restaurant, or wait untill you are done checking out at the store? I'm not here to tell people what to do, but it does seem kind of contradictory to me. If it is not allowed to vape somewhere, why do it? Even if the vapor is safe and not as dangerous as second-hand smoke, a lot of people don't know this and rules should be respected. It's also not dangerous to drink a soda on the bus but it's still not allowed (here at least.) and as such it's courtesy to respect that and wait untill you are out of the bus to drink your soda. Just an example of course, but there are many more. I'd like to hear the reason for this. Doesn't it seem contradictory to you to want a good public image of vaping but are proceeding to break no-vaping rules? Again, not coming off on anyone or condescending. I just want to share my opinion and hear what others have to say about it.
