5 Reasons Why Vaping Should Be Supported By Non Smokers

I am not a smoker. I never have been. I have never smoked a cigarette in my life.

I do, however, have friends who smoke. I am a very social person, and several times per week you can expect to find my house full of people. We hang out, we talk, we joke around, and we have fun. Being a writer and being aware of the dangers of smoking, I am constantly trying to encourage my smoking friends to quit. I don’t make a big deal out of it. I just mention it lightly.

“Dude, you should really quit,” I might say when I see them pull a pack out of their pocket. “Cigarettes are so bad for you.”

“I know,” will be the usual reply as they light up and start puffing away.

But recently I have had a few friends switch over to E-cigs. Like any smoker, they always ask me before lighting up in my house. I will always politely ask smokers to light up outside instead of inside my home, but my policy is different for E-cig users. When my friends ask me if they can vape in my house, I encourage them to go ahead.

“I support your vaping habit,” I tell them with a laugh. They know that they can vape inside and that I won’t mind.

But why? Why would I ask smokers to smoke outside but tell vapers that they can feel free to vape inside my home? Here are my reasons.

1… Because vaping doesn’t smell up my house

I can smell cigarette smoke for days after a smoker has lit up in my home. This is in direct contrast to vaping.

When someone vapes in my home, I barely smell it while they are doing it and not at all as soon as they stop. It leaves no residual smell and does not make my house smell like cigarettes.

2… Because vaping doesn’t create a mess

Since I am not a smoker, I do not have ash trays. Plus, I tend to find it a bit off-putting when there are random containers filled with ash sitting on surfaces around me. Also, after the smokers go home, who is going to need to empty any ‘ash tray-like containers’ that happen to be lying around? I will, and the thought of doing that is a bit irritating to me. Not that I don’t like my smoking friends, of course… it is just that I don’t want to have to deal with the ashes and butts when I don’t smoke.

But my vaping friends, on the other hand, leave no trace of their habit. No ash to clean up, no cigarette butts to throw away, and no ash-trays to empty.

3… Because cigarettes pose greater health concerns for everyone

There are several reasons for why I don’t smoke, though the primary reason has mostly to do with the fact that cigarettes have been shown to be so bad for you. I want to stay healthy and active for as long as is possible, and smoking definitely takes away from this.

With that being said, it should go without saying that I definitely don’t want to inhale cigarette smoke from other people’s cigarettes. Why would I want to deal with possible health risks associated with the habit when it isn’t even my habit?

Vaping, on the other hand, doesn’t present these same dangers. Every ex-smoker turned vaper will tell you that E-cig vape is not tobacco smoke. Switching to vaping is very similar to quitting smoking altogether.

4… Because E-cigs don’t start fires

Cigarettes, when lit, are actually on fire. This means that they could start a fire if an accident were to occur. E-cigs, on the other hand, do not utilize fire or flame of any kind… making them much safer.

5… Because I care about my friends

I like my friends. I don’t want them to get sick. Even worse, I don’t want them to die of cancer. This is why I encourage my smoking friends to quit, and why I make sure to let my smoker-turned-vaper friends know that I support their vaping habit. I know that E-cigs have not been around for a long time and that we might not know everything that there is to know about them, but I also know that smoking is very difficult to quit. For some, electronic cigarettes might be the only hope of kicking their tobacco habit altogether.

Would I want to jeopardize this by preaching about how E-cigs could maybe be dangerous, even though we don’t have direct evidence for it yet? No. I will not take that road. When my friends vape, I tell them that I support their decision because I care about them, and because I feel that vaping is a much better decision than smoking. Would it be better if they inhaled nothing but clean air? Yes. It would also be better if we walked instead of driving cars. It would also be better if we drank water instead of sugary soft drinks.

But our world is not perfect, and neither are we. E-cigs are not perfect either, but they are much, much better than cigarettes. For this reason, I encourage my vaping friends. As long as they are not smoking, I consider myself thankful.
