Welcome vape fans, to our newest blog series: Standing Together. Our last series focused on the science surrounding vaping; this series focuses on the community.
Changes are coming, and those changes can be a good thing for everyone. However, to ensure the changes are positive for our community, not based in fear we need to share our knowledge, inform and educate the public, and create a true picture of our community. In order to accomplish this, we need to stand together.
This series is going to be highlighting different aspects that may be negatively affecting our ability to accomplish our goal. Our goal: making vaping available to adults, especially those trying to make the switch from traditional cigarettes. Vaping has become a passionate issue on both sides of the debate. We are all passionate about vaping and healthy living. In order to obtain the goal of making and keeping vaping readily available, there are some things within our community that we can improve on.
Today’s blog is an introduction to the series. Some, but not all, of the subjects we will be covering include: Community interaction, shifting our focus to ensure we are all prepared for regulation, supporting each other’s differences and many more.
The purpose of this blog series is simply to point out areas of possible concern within the community, and address ways those areas can be improved. We’re a family and community of vapers. As a community, we can grow and can influence change, but only when we are united.
Be sure to come back next week when we will be talking about encouraging vapers regardless of the hardware they are using. Until then, what do you see as areas our community can improve upon in reference to standing together and public perception? Are there specific areas you would like to see addressed in this series? As always, educate yourselves, support your community and vape on!
