Vapists taking over our smokefilled streets
Vape culture is a new thing that we should all be proud of, isn’t it?
I’m suspicious of vaping and I’m particularly suspicious of people who go to vape cafes and vape shops to buy special vapes to show off to their fellow vapists (sic).
Vaping, for the uninitiated, is like smoking only electronic, featuring water vapour and not as cool.
I don’t actually think smoking is cool but it is hands down cooler than vaping, which isn’t hard.
Apparently vaping is a good thing, it’s a ‘healthy revolution’, it’ll finally make you kick the habit and all the rest of it. But actually is there any proof of any of that? I’m sat here in my cigarette-shaped Ivory Tower convinced we’re mere months away from a new government paper which will show vaping is more dangerous than anthrax, or something.
I know several vapers who didn’t even smoke before taking it up. That can’t be good. I’ve also got issues with regulation.
In an era when the government has tried its best to rightly make smoking as nonappealing to children as it can, shouldn’t the same be true for vaping?
Instead, heavilyanimated vape shops have sprung up on every street corner from Maidstone to Margate.
Presumably the vape shops have opened outside of the county of Kent as well.
Many town centres are now cloaked in a thick carpet of raspberry scented fog and I’ve seen more than a few vapers vaping in restaurants.
I can honestly say I’d rather have a cigarette blown in my face than a vape cloud.
The other day someone even phoned in a well-known radio talk show to inform the host that humans have now invented a vaping contest where they compete to see who can blow the biggest cloud.
I would like to hear from anyone who can convincingly argue any of that’s good for the public, surely it is just seducing the vapists of tomorrow?
