    Oh Zara, I am so envious that you get to see the Chili Peppers tomorrow!!!! I wanted tickets for my birthday (they were here 4 days after my birthday), but couldn't because of my back. Hoping they come back when I'm all better so I can see them (or I win powerball so I can fly out to a show or 4 - should probably buy a ticket if I want that to happen...lol)

    Having 2 non smokers with you should help you to stay strong, but having a PV & 0 nic might be a smart insurance policy to have on hand in case the urge becomes overwhelming (drinking, plus a smoker, plus great music can equal a whole lot of temptation!) You probably won't use it, but you might be glad to have it.

    The anti-nicotine hiring policies are ridiculous. I'm surprised it hasn't become a bigger legal issue for the companies that choose to practice them.

    Whether you bring a pv & 0 nic or not, have an AWESOME time at the show tomorrow & please please please tell me how wonderful & glorious & peppery phenomenal it is, and how it went with or without pv

    It's great to see a vaper from my area, I've yet to see one in public. BTW, my mom is a nurse at Grant and she's a smoker. The policy must only apply to new hires. She doesn't smoke at work, but she's a pretty heavy smoker at home. I wonder what she'd do if they applied that policy to all their workers.

    Congrats on quitting nic! I'm one of the people who are very disturbed that anyone would be discriminated against because they use nicotine. I can't believe that's not illegal! We should always look to fight back against this discriminatory nonsense. There are lots of places who are so hard up for nurses they would probably buy the juice for you or almost anything else you wanted. However, if you feel better off the nic then it's a silver lining, although the cloud itself is vile!!!

    I agree the cloud is vile and if I wasn't so desperate for a job I would be a bit more Norma Ray about it but I'm getting desperate to find a job. The majority of my classmates haven't found work (class of 80 some) so I have a lot of competition. I do feel way better without vaping and I have never been more motivated to start exercising. I was able to run the farthest I have in a long time the other night (which isn't much lol) so I don't think I want to even risk what I've done with using Zero nic juice. Of course this could be resultant of not smoking cigarettes for year and a half.

    And it's not every hospital that's doing the zero nic policy...just enough of them to have made it worth while for me to quit. I was wanting to quit for over a year now so I figured I'd use it as motivation. God bless the E-Cig though b/c without a doubt I never would have quit smoking at all ever.

    RHCP was AMAZING! Survived with no PV...didn't even miss it or really even think about it actually. The only time I thought about anything nicotine related was when my friend went 3 hours without a cigarette and I remember thinking that he should have brought his PV so then he could go into the bathroom or even take some puffs out in our seats (they were smoking some "other" stuff down our row so I doubt they would have said anything).

    I know this is an older post, but I just wanted to say -- Congratulations and I hope to follow in your footsteps of quitting vaping. I just want to be free of it all. I also hope you are happily employed in your chosen profession.

    I think the protection of nic users is something people should be fighting for in their individual States by contacting their representatives as well as the ACLU. Its ideology-driven discrimination plain and simple. Think how outraged people would be if there were similar hiring practices for caffeine users! (which the medial field pretty much lives on) I said years ago that if you let this kind of discrimination (then smokers) take place... then YOU'RE NEXT! and Hillary started it btw with the nanny-state/fascist/progressives continuing it. Totally dysfunctional when one considers (delete and insert) "a previously illegal substance" just going legal in Oregon (I think)... yup ideology and extreme prejudice (defined irrational.) I'm glad I don't live in New York where salt and Big Gulps are government controlled.

    I smoked cigarettes for more than 52 years. 2.5 PAD when I started vaping. I started with an Original BLU ecig. It was crap, but I knew from the first drag off of it that I could switch off tobacco to ecigs. Did both for about 6 months, then finally totally switched to ecig using DIY Cinnamon eliquid. After about a year of this I became concerned I was vaping too much Cinnamon. Next DIY batch I left the Flavor out. 24 hours later I was vaping up a storm. Then it dawned on me that I had also ACCIDENTLY left the NICOTINE out of the mix. Decided if I could do without it for 24 hours that I didn't need it. From then on I vaped just my 50/50 blend of VG/PG. VG is rather sweet, so made for a sweet vape. After a couple years of this, mostly oral gratification vaping. I needed surgery for a bowel problem. Didn't remember to take my ecig for the 911 ambulance rides. Was in hospitals a total of 22 days. So, now I don't smoke or vape. After 52 years of smoking tobacco cigarettes I ACCIDENTLY quit smoking.

    I'm living proof, if I can do it. . .anybody can do it. But, you gotta wanna.

    Cheers,
    otrpu
