    I think it was doggie that said it in the other thread - you cant convert people

    But that being said - I found that sometimes if you plant a seed - their curiosity might take over in ways you might not expect

    Alot of peoples ideas about vaping comes from the mass misinformation campaign that has stemmed from ANTZ - sometimes (aside from a mass media public campaign ) what is effective is just you being you and doing what you do

    Something also that I have realised is that when you mention risk and things like cancer or dylactle or smoking or other key words like this (even in a positive context) - people tune out automatically without listening to anything else - those kinds of words a re so ingrained in us to cause fear that even if the risk is super low in relation to smoking - people become fearful and just shut down

    But in my industry at least - there is a surprising change happening on the lower levels without me doing anything - people are quietly turning to vaping if not only out of curiosity - enough that I am wondering if we wont see a change in my own industry policy in relation to vaping at some stage down the track- The workers they are converting and telling each other - Which has been surprising and may at some stage have a major impact on the way some things are done

    Just be you and do what you do - the rest will follow - no point giving yourself a headache over this - This forum is testament to that - without trying and just providing info when needed - people try or convert to vaping all the time thanks to people like you just being you

    No you really can't educated the ignorant they will try and shoot you down every chance they can.
    With what I do and vaping being quite popular in NZ I still get it every now and then.
    Best you can do is hold your head up high you tried to help and its their loss for not listening.
    Its the mindless sheep attitude.
    Brainwashed by what they see on TV or read in the news because really the news is never wrong..
    You did good for having your say.
    Most people won't because they will feel judged or ostracised.

    They say "the best way to convince a fool, is to let him have his way".
    Unfortunately in this case, people will die.
