I’ve started writing a blog over my holiday time off, interested in your thoughts. https://ift.tt/37SexrR

If you’re not an adult or not trying to give up ciggies, please don’t vape.

Generally, I find the marketing of e-cigarettes by major manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers is very responsible and carefully targeted to the appropriate audience as they are all in the business for the long term and all want to compete in a controlled, regulated and profitable market.

Unfortunately, (as in so many industries) there are always irresponsible operators that are only in it for the quick buck and have a blatant disregard any moral, ethical or legal responsibility. They clearly target their products to a lucrative vulnerable audience with deceptive packaging and low-price points that can be very appealing to both the youth and adult non vapers market. The labels of some e-juice bottles can be incredibly enticing to any age as it looks as if you are missing out on some incredible flavour burst if you don’t try it, some of the visuals of vaping show so much cloud that it’s thicker than a London fog, on the other hand there are devices being marketed that you can vape with no cloud so you’re not caught vaping at school or at work or what about one product that is offered as a ‘beautiful non-toxic environmental protection vape pen’, wow I better get one of those and save the world. I personally would rather have the right to purchase my vape products in plain packaging with the relevant warnings (the same as tobacco packaging currently in Australia) and make informed purchasing choices rather than manufacturers trying to influence me with false statements and deceptive artwork than have vaping banned outright due to the damaged caused to the vape industries image and perception by unscrupulous operators .

Vaping is not for anyone under the legal age of smoking and I’m not about to get into the details of why minors shouldn’t vape for all the legal, moral and health related reasons, that is another blog altogether. Let’s all do our vaping community a favour by fighting for our right to vape and discouraging underage vaping as it is considered a major community, social and health concern (rightly so) and is used by the authorities and media as a reason to ban vaping to all persons. If we all do our bit to discourage underage vaping that can only be a good thing in the long term, I believe most vapers are ex-smokers and the right to vape is very important to us, if vaping is banned many current vapers will return the ciggies to get their nicotine hit and that is not what any of us want,

I also believe if you’re not a smoker trying to quit and slowly reduce your nicotine intake by vaping; you should not consider vaping either. Most smokers trying to stop and stay off the ciggies use liquid nicotine in their e-juice and as we all know nicotine is addictive, very addictive – I often wish I had never started smoking. Nicotine in e-juice can give you a strong hit or just be underlying enough to get you addicted very quickly. Of course, you can just vape for flavour and try some of those enticing colourful appealing e-juice labelled products but why start vaping when your lungs have enjoyed nothing but fresh air up until now, just go and buy a doughnut, bag of lollies (sweets/candy whatever you call them) or eat a piece of fruit and savour real flavours, I can assure you the best-looking bottle of e-juice will never match the real thing.

So, in a nutshell, if your underage don’t vape, if you don’t smoke don’t vape, let’s all do our bit to discourage underage vaping, don’t encourage non-smokers to take up vaping and do not purchase black market products as it takes sales away from responsible manufacturers who spend a great deal on R&D and damages the vaping industry image in the long term.
