RE: Stop smoking - start vaping
I'm the same, I have always called myself a vaper, and I vape or vaping, 100% agree with op, I can't stand the term e-smoking it has no reference to what we do

Maybe as we are all pioneers in the vaping thing could we maybe have a poll or discussion and try to find a common term we would all mostly agree as to what we call what we do

I just don't get the references to e-smoking - no one actually says that.

I use an e-cig
I am an e-cig user
I am a vaper (when talking to another e-cig user)

a Personal Vapouriser is a medical sounding, regulation demanding, term.


typical scenario :

random person sees me with my e-cig

person : "what is that?"
me : "it is an e-cig"
person "ah, right"

They get it straight away.

RE: Stop smoking - start vaping
I think part of the problem in speech is, if you say "I am a vaper", it sounds the same as "I am a vapour". If I said that to someone, I would expect a smart arse reply like "really, you look quite solid to me" or if they want to be more insulting "you can't be a vaper, you're too dense".

RE: Stop smoking - start vaping
Totally agree with op and why I say we should avoid anything to do with cigs, smoke etc, lookie likes, playing right into the regulators hands.
If people ask me what I am doing I say I am enjoying myself just like you are eating that mars bar!
Do we need a name? People who eat mars bars are not Martians or maybe they are.....
Seriously tho I always say if asked, I am chilling out and letting off steam

RE: Stop smoking - start vaping
google finds 65 million reference to electronic cigarette..

i think the world has already made its mind up what to call the things we use.. what we think dosnt matter much..

i would call them "a portable electronic drug delivery system" if ask for a true definition of what they are. i find it easier (and safer) to call them electric fags.. there are worse things to be associated with than tobacco..

vaping gets 1.6 million google references.. a lot more than it used to do..

trog

ps.. the term e pipe fits a mod quite well.. that is what folks have called the device i use.. my e pipe..

No copyright issues there at all. 'Hummer' is the Swedish word for 'lobster'! Big Grin

I don't like the term electronic cigarette much, but even here in Sweden, people know what an e-cig is. I don't smoke my e-cig though, I vape on it. Sadly, the Swedes seem to have adopted 'vejp' (vape) as the term, even though it sounds foolish in Swedish. Better than saying I'm 'steaming' though, which is the only other word that really fits.

Personal Vapouriser is just nonsense, of course it's personal - it's mine!

RE: Stop smoking - start vaping
Hummer is also slang for blow job griz. Big Grin

As for the term recreational, that suggests something that one can take or leave and not an addiction substitute IMO.
