    Angry Changes begin at home?

    Had to vent... but sometimes I wonder how we're going to change the pollies minds when sometimes the people we live with can be even denser.

    My husband informed me that he will not stay in the same room with me when I am vaping. I was gobsmacked. Why? I asked. It's not toxic, there's no real smoke, fire or anything!

    He said, Because it looks like a cigarette.

    Looks like a cigarette!!!! I couldn't believe the stupidity of that remark and then the fight began.

    I won.

    but my point is I don't feel comfortable vaping in public because I can't be bothered having to explain to anyone, and if I can't even vape in peace in my own home what hope do I have...


    Grrrrrrr....

    I don't doubt that. My father gave me some great advice when I was younger....it went something along the lines of

    "Son the day you get married is that day you will never win again...."

    But seriously this is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard. Cant believe that, he is not a reformed smoker by any chance???

    Aww that sucks... Give it time, he probably just feels unsure about this new object you have become so fond of.

    I had the same reaction froom a relative who I stayed with for a couple of days last week.
    Firstly it was just niggly narky remarks,
    Then it was-"am I getting any nicotine from that thing? "
    Then it was full on hostility- "I hate the smell, its sickly"
    "I'd rather smell cigarettes"!?? (especially after the supposed concern about getting nicotine)

    I think what they say is annoying them isnt really whats annoying them-- (issues there somewhere.!)
    Needless to say i left quickly, never to return,

    Another of the mindless masses who have allowed themselves to be brainwashed that ALL smokers are nasty smelly dangerous people who should be outlawed from upright citizens - an ecigarette looks like a cigarette so therefore you are a nasty smelly dangerous person. The lazy mindless politicians have already won the battle and the war - so stealth vape away and stuff them!!

    My deepest sympathies.
    My hubby is SO proud of me vaping that he brags to people about it. He even comes home and says "I saw someone with one of your smokes. I asked him what flavours he smokes and told him about you."
    If yours is going to be mean spirited why not get a mod that looks nothing like a cigarette.
    Good luck.
