If a ban on vaping in public places comes into effect then so be it. As long as they dont over-regulate the sale of devices and juice, or worse still, ban them completely, I can deal with that. If you don't want me vaping next to you in Starbucks, Maccies or the pub then OK. Just don't try and stop me from doing it altogether and having to resort to the widely available known killer alternative that is tobacco.

I have a pack of gigs with 17 left in it that hasn't been touched since the 30th August along with the 1200+ approx that i would have smoked since then if I hadn't started vaping. I'm still a nicotine addict and have been since I was 9 years old, and I may well stay that way forever. But I choose to service my habit with a much less harmful alternative. Leave me be and I'll stay out of your way. Deal?

or pop 'em in the bin like any other normal person might - ;)


i carried on buying my normal smoking supplies when i began vaping. watched it build up until near the first Christmas, then traded it in for a nice mod.
i still got one un-opened full pack from several years ago too - nice to keep and can always be traded for a nice bottle of e-liquid, or funds to that effect.

I dont expect I'll ever need them to be honest. I see them more as a sort of trophy of my success so far. The thought of smoking tobacco just doesn't appeal to me. Which is testament to the power of vaping and the need to convert. 3 colleagues converted so far and more to follow hopefully!
