So, apparently there is already a slang term for smoking e-cigarettes. "Vaping." Huh... Who'd have thought that our entire existence would become so digital that we send e-mails, read e-books (I have a terror of all the real books disappearing and being forced to read e-books. I find it a particularly gross form of blasphemy), have e-dating, keep e-journals, and now there are e-cigarettes. No smoke, no tar, no solids, no second hand stuff, just water vapor with nicotine and flavoring. Yes, nicotine is still technically bad for us, but the carcinogens actually come from the burning leaves, not the chemical we crave. Technically speaking, I quit smoking today.
We'll see how it goes.
