    I've been vaping in the Air Force for about 8 months now. As I understand it, The Air Force classifies PVs as tobacco products, and limits their use to "designated tobacco use areas." I work flightline, so there's always lots of people everywhere, and it's not worth the risk of the wrong person seeing me using it in the wrong place, so I just conform. I would be nice to see the branches make a more informed decision however. I do think that the overall health related costs of members' tobacco use could be lowered by incentivizing the use of PVs. One easy way to do that would be to allow them indoors.

    I vape inside everyday. The only thing I have gotten is a second look from time to time when they first see it(to make sure it's not an analog). There is only one order(USMC)so far and it's a base order in Virginia banning use of pv's inside. My SNCO said he has no prob w it. Many dip inside an this is far less offensive.

    That's great. To me, it's common sense. Even if I didn't vape, I'd let my Soldiers vape indoors. The only exception is customer service and the appearance of professionalism.

    Me and a couple other my Brothers vape indoors all the time..... My 1SG doesn't mind it, Although it's in the SF Community where certain standards can be a little lax.

    I vape in my office occasionally. I work in the G-8 and have an office to myself so there's nobody to watch me anyway. I actually like to get away from my computer so I normally head outside to hang out...

    I know this is a little bit of a dead one, but I vape sitting in the basement of the Pentagon a lot, granted there is only two of us in the office most of the time, and it is manned 24-7 so when your solo your solo...

    Navy working with USAF SF and I do vape at my desk however I have been told about the AFI that states it is considered a tobacco product. The TSgt that I work with does not care but he has warned me about the SMSGT. When he is in the building I just go to the smoke pit

    Used to smoke a cig-a-like in our comm warehouse and at the office. Got a weird look from the Commander when he stopped by, but not sure if it was the ecig or the IBC Root Beer bottle that he couldn't see the label on... or the ashtray I kept on my desk for novelty and to have a place for the ecig to rest. Come to think of it, I wasn't a very good airman. Oh, well.

    They published an AFI about it? Wow... that's far quicker than I'm used to seeing regs come out on anything. Especially considering it took HOW long to get ABUs into 36-2903.

    I vape in our SCIF currently while deployed, but I have no clue how well it will go over back in garrison.
