I wrote this in June last year - We ARE smokers which said:- "This might be a touchy point for all vapers who feel holier-than-thou over those poor souls who still smoke. I know, I sometimes wonder why smokers don't vape - I feel cleaner, better, fitter and and internally delighted that I don't have to go outside and stand in the rain to have my fix. I can vape anywhere - even in taboo places - by vaping in the loo. That's an advantage over smokers. There are advantages that vapers have over smokers - but that is ALL they are, advantages and not indications we are in any way better than smokers.
I watch how smokers are persecuted. I place myself firmly against
anti-smoking witch hunting. I will not do it myself - I am a smoker who
vapes. What happens to smokers is very important to me, watching how the
persecution is rolled out, gives us vapers foreknowledge of what might
happen to us. We ARE smokers!"
I had several cross responses to my post on Google+ and Facebook.
