    BEst info sheet to introduce vaping concept to a non smoker

    Pretty much as per the title.
    Hypothetically, a friend* of mine might be newly dating a non smoker, a scientist type of person. This other person is a non smoking environmental kind of person. Now, the issue is, how best for my friend to provide the best spin on vaping and maintain honesty in the relationship without triggering all the Tobacco is bad and you should just die thoughts.

    thanks in advance from my friend.

    I think that any such fact sheet will need to refer to research in the UK.

    Also its important that it doesn't portray an argent point of view as we know its safer not harmless.

    Ima gonna take a gamble and assume that the scientist would only date someone who was as curious or at least as intelligent as himself or herself?

    If thats the case I would be aiming for the curiosity aspect - a quick point out of nicotines positive nootropic and cognitive effects, the enjoyment without the harm- fact that everyone has vices - but its doing minimal harm- no definitive proof of nicotine or vaping without being overtly harmful or addictive and their house and smell nice from it (Oh and better than the smoking habit that was lost)

    and then maybe set up a challenge to prove otherwise - it could become a game with a time limit of say 30 days- winner pays for dinner

    Its just something that the ex smoker does and they enjoy it with little harm to anyone

    your "friend" might also refer to Dr Farsalonis e-cigarettes research - E-cigarette Research ... nothing like a good spirited debate


    Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.

    Honesty would be the best for your friend I reckon Mr G. It depends also on what level the relationship is, yours with your friend and friends with prospective g/f. Another conversation opportunity all round.

    The issue was give up vaping (potentially) or the girl, turned out for the good with cards on the table and dear old uncle Constantine's help.

    What a nice thread - I went from 'he's got no hope' to 'best of luck battling the propaganda' in rebel's comment (although a great strategy) to a smidgen of hope with 1ynne's suggestion of referring to Dr Farsalonis.

    Ah, nothing like a good love story that ends well.
