To Vape or Not To Vape…
When you find yourself at a crossroad, sometimes you have to put pen to paper and just weigh up your options.
Which is exactly what I did when faced with the existential conundrum: to vape or not to vape.
If I stopped smoking…
If I stopped smoking my clothes would have to smell of something else.
If I stopped smoking I wouldn’t have an excuse to walk out of any room at any time.
If I stopped smoking I’d have to start buying perfumes and colognes, because I need to smell of something. I think.
If I stopped smoking I’d have to find productive things to spend my money on and that sounds like hard work.
If I stopped smoking I wouldn’t get that comforting constant ritual of ‘having a smoke’.
If I stopped smoking I could actually run for a bus and I don’t really like running.
If I stopped smoking then I wouldn’t have to carry my lighter around all the time.
If I stopped smoking I suppose I could still carry my lighter, because it was a gift and it’s useful.
If I stopped smoking I’d have less of a good reason to go to smoking areas… which is where I enjoy spending my time on an evening out.
If I stopped smoking I would have to tell people that I’ve stopped and then I’d sound smug every time I turned down a cigarette.
If I stopped smoking I would have good reason to say smug things, when currently, I do it anyway without a good reason.
If I stopped smoking I’d have enough money set aside to do that kickboxing class I’ve wanted to do for ages.
If I stop smoking my family would be really happy, and that would be alright.
If I started vaping…
If I started vaping instead, I could still walk out of any room at any time.
If I started vaping I could still hang out in smoking areas.
If I started vaping I’d still be able to carry that lighter, did I mention it was a gift?
If I started vaping I wouldn’t have to go without my ritual of stress relief.
If I started vaping, I could style my fragrance with my choice of e-liquids. Maybe that could become my ‘thing’.
If I started vaping my family and friends would still be happy.
