Hi Levitas and Welcome!!!!
We get together every 3rd saturday of the month and we always have a good time.
The St.louis group always bring the awesome!!!!
I vaped there, in the NON-smoking section (to the right), in April 09, when I was on my way to the airport to fly out to Florida! Vaped at the old Springfield/Branson airport, and on the plane (Allegiant). At the airport, a few people got upset, I showed them it was not a cigarette and only one gave me a hard time. The security guards came over (wonder which one reported it? lol) I showed them it was an ecig, and they told me no problem.

Reason: additional information
I'm near Ft. Leonard Wood... south-central, Mo. I'm down to 7- 4081's (SmokeStik 5, 2 NJOY), currently waiting on a Leo 800, and a 4081 PT. I've vaped at the WalMart in St Robert, and in Lebanon... at the Lowe's in Lebanon. So far, I've not had any problems with vaping, once it's explained what I'm doing, and that it's only a vapor that they are seeing.
Hey! So when/where is the next meet? What kind of turn-out do these meets usually have? Just realized there are state-specific subforums here, so I know none of that. Me and the girlfriend would love to attend one of these functions. You will see my setup in my sig. And for the record, I use my Provari EVERYWHERE. I have only been called on it once at a Casey's gas station, and he calmed down when I showed him what made all the "smoke" LOL.
Hi all. I live in the Windsor area. It's near Clinton, Warrensburg, Sedalia area. I have not started vaping yet. Have a KR808 headed my way just as fast as the USPS can carry it to me.
Can hardly wait to get started. I am so excited to not hear my breath whistling in my trachea at night. I'm excited to not have ashtray breath. I'm excited for my house to not smell like an ashtray, either. I'm excited to possibly dodge the emphysema bullet (or worse). In short, I'm excited.
Been in LPN school for the past year, due to graduate in two weeks. It's been a miserable year and I hope to celebrate it's ending with the end of my smoking, as well.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.
You know what chaps me about the smoking bans? Gov't banning smoking in bars n restaurants. Now...that is a private business. If the owner chooses to ban smoking, that is his/her right, it's his/her business. He/she pays the taxes (one hopes) and does all the work.
Welcome, and good luck, mamabear! You've definitely made the right decision. That KR8 is a good first choice, just remember: If there is anything at all about it that you dislike, you can change it. Almost everything about vaping is customizable. Too strong/weak? Don't like the flavor? Too much hassle changing batteries, refilling cartos, etc.? Whatever, it can be fixed. Trouble is, at first, you may not know exactly what the problem is, and exactly what you will want in a month or so. That's what this forum is for. We can help you figure it out.
Oh, and what I don't like about the smoking bans, is the incredible temerity of a government that presumes to intrude into the personal lives of it's citizens in any way whatsoever. If our "Founding Fathers" knew this was where it was all headed, they probably wouldn't have bothered.
Also, you aren't very far from the St. Louis area, and the only active vaping group in MO. They are friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable, and have regular monthly meetups where you can learn gobs o' stuff and meet good people.
