That is a real question, those who vape knows its meaning, the general public has no idea what we are talking about when we say “we are vaping”. The vaper community should define and submit the words vape, vaper, vaping to the uban dictionary and other dictionaries to become a real word. The definition should include the words; recreational, alternative using vaporization of a mixture of propylene glycol, food flavoring and nicotine.
Vaping is a lifestyle for some of us, we will either smoke or vape, vaping is much nicer.
Alternative or Cession device?
ONE day Vaper will be an acceptable term to use for what we do with our e-cigarettes, but until such time we have to tell our story in a manner that the world will understand. Communication on the other person’s level of understanding is the only communication that will work.
