The social stigma of smoking and other tobacco related products can be seen as societies awareness of it’s own exploitation and the driving force behind today’s social ‘denormalization’ of a previously accepted social practice. Vapers today are forced to face much of these same social stigmas head on as many non smokers do not have a complete grasp or understanding of the facts.
The meaning of ‘Vaping’ is to inhale a water vapor produced by a personal vaporizer or electronic cigarette. By its very description it is definitely not the same as smoking. The smoke juices are heated rather than burned, and a misty vapor is produced rather than cigarette’s nasty smelly smoke with messy ash byproducts. The trendy and considered better health choice is vaping. There are several new studies that have shown this new pastime to be much safer than smoking tobacco.
Here are some reasons why non smokers shouldn’t be so offended by vaping; The second hand vape actually smells good or doesn’t have a scent at all. There is no waste product, no smoke, ash or butts. So what you get is less waste period. Everyone can breath better! There’s a big one! No bad breath from vaping! Win, win people! That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pop a breath mint in before your next make out session! The odorless vapor smell doesn’t stick to your fancy threads and hair! That means you don’t need to drench yourself in cologne or perfume which can be just as bad as cigarette smoke when you go overboard. Keep it light! No one likes to taste what scent you’re wearing or vaping. Let’s face it, you keep more money in your pocket than when you bought cigarettes. And now you can afford to take your date out someplace expensive or get an extra massage. It’s so discreet! Most people won’t even notice that you’re vaping.
If you are over 18 years of age, it is now legal to vape anywhere in the USA where smoking is permitted, and even in some places where it is not. (Please be polite and ask before vaping indoors, you wouldn’t want to alarm restaurants or store owners who are unaware of what a vape pen is.) Before taking your vape pen abroad to other parts of the world, it would be wise to check with the relevant Consulate or Embassy. Since 2012 there happens to be only 2 places in the US where vaping is NOT permitted indoors: Suffolk County, New York and New Jersey.
Let’s talk about what the juices contain? What You’re ingesting when you vape? Smoke juice, otherwise known as vape juice, e-liquid or vape oil, has between two and six ingredients. No other additives or hidden ingredients. What you see is what you get. Smoke juice ingredients are divided into four elements: 80%-90% Vegetable glycerine (VG) base and acts as a carrier for the flavor and nicotine. Which is often mixed with propylene glycol (PG) and/or polyethylene glycol (PEG). When the proportion of propylene glycol is high in the mixture it creates thicker clouds of vape. 10%-20% Flavor. Such as food grade flavorings, used in candy making, or essential oil essences like spearmint and 0%-2.4% Nicotine, depending on strength. Some time distilled water is used for dilution.
