Memories of smoke and how vaping has changed the night scene

الاسهم الاماراتيه مباشر Do you remember nights out slipping down narrow staircases to some dance floor in the basement of some small independent club, hidden along some alleyway in a corner of the city? No? Perhaps you were born after the smoking ban. I’ve so far spent my adult life in two UK cities whose night scene centres around or used to centre around cobbled roads and narrow town houses. You know the kind: the venues that are back-to-back with another bar, with little space outside for queues to form much fewer congregations, at least not without spilling out into the street. I don’t know whether Liverpool and Bristol are representative of the night scene at large, but I from what I’ve experienced, there are similar clubs in every city.

شريط الاسهم السعودية مباشرة It’s these clubs that were most affected by the smoking ban when it first came in, and many of them soon crumbled because of accessibility issues. Don’t get me wrong: I’m all for the smoking ban. If it had come in a few years before it did, I never would have started the habit in the first place. Now that I’ve quit I can smell a cigarette a mile off and I wonder how we ever managed to stand dancing in a small, smoke filled room for hours on end. But buildings of the UK are old, and just like disability concerns, the smoking ban has become a necessary hurdle for occupiers to leap (or stumble) over. Many haven’t, and perhaps that’s part of the reason lots of clubs have shut down or lost their stronghold over certain areas.

انتقل إلى هذا الموقع It seems to me the obvious solution is to vape. Some venues don’t allow vaping on the basis that it’s hard for security to differentiate between actual smoke and the steam omitted from vaporisers. This is compounded by the fact that some people believe the second-hand smoke from vaping is harmful (it’s not). In fact, vaping is 95% less harmful than normal smoke - plus it doesn't smell, there's no danger of second-hand smoking, and there's no fire hazard either. We're sure venue owners are willing to make the trade-off of allowing vaping in their venue and having more customers, too.

السوق اليوم مباشر Of course, everyone’s entitled to their opinion, and if you hate the smell or can’t stand the uncertainty, that’s okay. But ask yourself - before you make a rash decision as a venue owner, or turn your nose up at a vaper - which would you prefer: a venue with a few vapers, or no venue at all?
