Standing Together

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.

Vapers Unite

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!

    In my community stores are just starting to pop up. Till now the gas station variety is all that was available to people. I am still often stopped and asked “what is that thing”. I use an evic with a tank.
    They know what they hear on tv…I would like to see awareness of the good things of the ecigs how they can help people stop smoking..lower nic. without ill effects. Or use by choice still being an improvement of traditional smoking.
    People around my area think it is a hidden way of marijuana lol so what can we do to make people aware of the truth?

    Approximatly 2 months ago I bought my first cheapy starter kit ($15.00) Just to see if this was for me. I started smoking Lucky Strikes at the old age of 11. I smoked 2 pacs aday for 57 years. Upon purchasing my starter kit I knew this was for me. I have since purchased itaste vv and a Aspire Nautilus Mini. I haven’t had a real cig since.
