"The Oxford English Dictionary named "vape" - the word used for the act of drawing on an electronic cigarette instead of a burning stick of tobacco - as its 2014 word of the year.

The 2013 word of the year was selfie, describing the decidedly less controversial self-portrait usually taken with a smart phone.

The apparent rise of e-cigarettes was cited as the reason for the skyrocketing use of the word, along with countless debates over the safety of using the devices long term."

    So then, if I draw on an electronic cigarette rather than a burning stick of tobacco, does that make me a vaperizer?

    By the way Thom, I did buy a Halo G6 e-cig so thanks for the recommendation.
    I haven't had a real cigarette in 7 weeks now!

    Ah yes. Vape. I word I love, along with the ecigarettes. I bought a bunch of vape domains also. They were very hard to come by.

      How is the press with E cigs in Canada and America?

      There is so much anti propaganda here it p***es me off. The other week they said that 100 house fires had been caused due to e cigs. Yet I've never seen a report of the thousands of house fires, and deaths, from normal ciggy's.

      They have a real agenda against them here, no doubt because the guv and the ciggy makers are losing cash hand over foot.

      I've been free since May now and today for the first time I had a problem. I don't know how but I arrived at work, opened my bag and to my utter horror realised I'd forgot to pack my mods. It's now nearly 3pm and apart from the odd craving I've been fine.

      I am looking forward to a vape when I get home though.

        Some negative press is attempted, but it has not had much of an impact. Vaping is wildly popular and vaping stores are popping up everywhere. Tobacco stores are becoming more about vaping than tobacco, if they're smart.

        While the pretty sparse negative publicity exists, it's difficult to find journalists willing to write positive stories about it. Most of that will be found on blogs and forums.

        Suzanne,

        That first image is all wrong. Worse still I can't get that tache out of my mind.

        I've just been sick in my mouth too.
