    I got my first E-mail from CASAA for an urgent call to action regarding a proposed ban to E-cig use wherever smoking is banned in Orange county, FL. In the instructions of what to say when calling or writing the city council members was this suggestion:

    4. Detail how electronic cigarette use is easy to distinguish from actual smoking. Although some e-cigarettes resemble real cigarettes, many do not. It is easy to tell when someone lights a cigarette, from the smell of smoke. E-cigarette vapor is practically odorless, and generally any detectable odor is not unpleasant and smells nothing like smoke. Additionally, e-cigarette users can decide whether to release any vapor ("stealth vaping"). With so little evidence of use, enforcing indoor use bans on electronic cigarettes would be nearly impossible.

    Regarding the above comment highlighted in bold - I would like to know how one can vape and not release any vapor or "stealth vaping". It sounds like something I could use at times - I am using a tank system . Anyone know how this is done?

    Hold it in for a few seconds, and it's gone!

    Hi 440BB. I'm trying that now. Even holding it for way more than a few seconds and I'm still letting out vapors.

    I find that simply holding it does not completely elliminate the vapour. Draw the vapor halfway, wait 3 seconds, complete the inhale, wait another second, then exhale. will be clear as air.

    Breathing out into a sleeve or down your open shirt helps too. If your setup has high VG and produces big clouds, it'll be hard to totaly hide it.

    Another way: take a drag, hold it for a second, inhale a bit of just air, hold it for a second, exhale just a bit. If the bit of exhale is vapor free, done; if there's still some uncondensed vapor, inhale a bit of air, hold it for a second, etc. The vapor will all condense and you're stealth vaping.

    Tried it a couple of times. Works pretty good - will get better with practice I think.

    Tried this and it works pretty darn good. I'm sure to use this at times.

    This takes some thought for me to do - good stuff to know for those "gotta have" moments.

    I have been in public places and stealth vaped but someone saw me taking a puff,they see no "smoke" coming out and they look kind of dazed when I put my PV back in my pocket.

    Hold it in for a while. I find just a few seconds isn't enough for me. 10 seconds does the trick. Also, if you don't want to hold it that long or if there is still some vapor coming out, blow down to your lap and blow fast, cool air (and if you want to be really stealthy, you'll keep your head looking straight, place your upper lip a little forward, your lower lip a little back, and pucker up a bit kindof like you're whistling, but downwards. The vapor will be thin, and will dissipate extremely quickly.

    Any time I am in public in an area where smoking is discouraged I stealth vape.

    I do a shallow inhale, hold it, and then finish the inhale. When I let it out, there's nothing left.

    Vaping does not give people a olfactory trigger, and if I don't exhale a cloud, I deny them the visual trigger as well. Without those, there is nothing to comment on, nothing to confront me of. And since my MVP2 in no way resembles an cigarette, no one makes the connection.

    I just exhale downward. Vape less often. Pocket my mod between puffs.

    Tapatalking with my thumbs.

    Another stealth vaping tip: if you're not allergic to PG, get juice with 100% PG. You'll get the TH with little if any vapor.
