Combatting Vaping Stereotypes
There are a lot of stereotypes in the world. People have this ridiculous obsession with putting everyone into categories and boxes. There doesn’t seem to be an industry or area which is free from this stereotyping, and our community is no different.
Now, the problem with a lot of these stereotypes is that they can be quite damaging for the reputation of the people that are seen to be perpetuating them. So what we thought we would do is take a look at some of the stereotypes surrounding vaping, and look at how you might combat them on a day-to-day basis.
Common Vaping Stereotypes
Okay, let’s take a look at some of the common stereotypes surrounding our industry and people in it. If you’re someone who smokes an electronic cigarette and falls into the category of 18 to 24-year-olds, then you are typically thought of as being rude, disrespectful, and someone who doesn’t have much regard for the considerations of other people.
Now, this might not be true. You might be a very considerate person who smokes and tries to be respectful to other people, so we can understand why this might be offensive. That is the problem with stereotypes - they aren’t necessarily true, but they do cause a lot of harm.
How Do We Break the Cycle?
So how do we go about breaking the cycle of stereotyping? As a community of people, what actions do we have to take to ensure that a different opinion is cultivated? Well, you can combat stereotypes in two ways. First of all, you can change the way you interact with people. And then, you can use the right words.
Let’s take a look at the first one, and discuss how we can change our actions in the community for the better. Now, a lot of people may not be disrespectful and rude. But they might not be doing as much as they could be to improve the overall opinion of vaping. You need to make a deliberate effort to conduct yourself in such a manner which makes vaping look like this incredible force, and at the same time, showcase maturity, wisdom, and respect for the people around you.
The second one is a little easier. What you need to do with your words is to convince people that they need to make a deliberate effort and be more mature about accepting the electric cigarette and its benefits. Educate yourself on what this device can do from a health perspective, and try and learn about how it’s helped people to stop smoking altogether. Focus on the good, and not the bad.
So, we think you will agree that when it comes to combating stereotypes, it takes quite a bit of determination to succeed. To provide you with the necessary tools for success in this campaign, Infinite Vapour offers you a selection of different devices, kits, mods and accessories to make sure you have everything you could need.
