    Doctor said I smoke...

    Hi guys,

    Hope all is well. I recently have been in and out of hospital and seen a few specialists. They all ask the obligatory question "do you smoke", to which i reply "I have not smoked a cigarette in over 8 years, but i do vape". I have had 2 doctors then state that "Well you still smoke then dont you", and they tick me off as a smoker on their charts. I understand that nicotine is a vaso constrictor, but to label me a smoker still in 'the system' is certainly not accurate in my eyes. Anyone else have this problem?

    Thank you for your thoughts...
    Last cigarette: March 14th, 2010 - Started Vaping Feb, 2010.

    When a doc is in ticking boxes mode, I just tell them I don't smoke. I may tell them later on that I vape, but only after I have interrogated them myself, to find out which box they fall into; smart, able and learned or; ignorant dunderheaded med stooge.

    By the way, if I find they fall into the second category I will tell them I need a practitioner from the first category, and dump them.
