The world opened up to vaping in 2014. Finally, on the back of huge home market growth, vapers took centre stage in news and current affairs. More than that, ‘Vape’ was made word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries. How appropriate is it that in 2016, as vaping faces its greatest challenges in the UK and overseas, the new word of the year is ‘Post-truth’?
Like monks marching Tibetan trails, vapers seek enlightenment. They quest for the ultimate in rewarding vape experiences, a liquid to illuminate their life. They, or rather ‘you’ need the Stealthvape Tao of Vaping residential weekend.
Where does everything go when we no longer see them? Cars, bikes, computer consoles, mods and attys? Stuff that used to be a must-have item suddenly doesn’t feature in your day-to-day sphere of reference. You know that Peter Kay? He used to be on the TV. Where do they keep him now?

It’s that time of year when supermarkets are full of plastic masks and multipacks of sweets. So, come join us. Sit down by the campfire, grab a marshmallow on a stick and listen to our tale – but be warned, it’s very scary. It’s like the new episode of The Walking Dead only without humour and sense of bonhomie.

How are you preparing for life in the apocalyptic 2017 TPD landscape?” Questions like this have cropped up with such a lack of frequency that it seemed like just the sort of thing we should address. So, as long as everybody promises not to nick our ideas here’s what is in the pipeline.

And, in almost every case, they are focussing on the dangers and risks vaping poses – dangers and risks of the explosive kind.
