I’ve not made it any secret that I smoked cigarettes for 30 years. I used several different methods to try to quit. Patches, gum, and a stupid little alarm clock that was supposed to wean me off cigarettes but was about as effective as an actual alarm clock. Then after one too many cigarettes sent me to the ER, I finally kicked the smoking habit for good by using e-cigarettes and eventually vaping. In those 5 years, I haven’t even had a single cheat cigarette, granted I still have a nicotine addiction I’m trying to shake.
One of the biggest problems with vaping is it’s a douchey activity. Just the terms vape and vaping sound douchey, the equipment looks douchey, the names of the flavors of the juices sound douchey, and the people who complain about not being able to vape inside establishments claiming ‘I’m not smoking, I’m vaping’ are incredibly douchey. Then there are douchebags like 30-year-old Dustin Appenzeller of Racine, Wisconsin who aren’t helping matters.
Appenzeller was recently arrested after allegedly giving nicotine juice used for vaping, also known as e-juice, to his nine-week-old infant. He reportedly did it for the usual reasons these troglodytes give children anything, “I don’t know. He was crying. I was really tired.” And he says he’s done it before.
This guy can’t be for real. Anyone with an iota of intelligence knows nicotine is a stimulant. You don’t give kids meth when they can’t sleep do you? That’s not even taking into account that nicotine poisoning is a real thing which is another reason why so many politicians are down on vaping. Politicians are afraid kids will drink the juice considering many of them have candy-like flavors, and this assclown just goes ahead and gives it to his kid.
Normally, I wouldn’t wish cancer on anyone, but it would be no skin off of my nose if this guy started smoking four packs of Luckys a day.
