    I went thru OSUT at Knox in '97, no smoking whatsoever. Like a lot of folks said, you'll be too busy or too tied and definately both to smoke. Nights were the worst though, fast asleep in the middle of a great dream puffing on those cigs only to wake up thinking you're smoking and slap the ever loving stuffing out of yourself and your rack thinking you dropped the cig and burning something up! Fun times!

    Fortunately we were allowed to get outta there for Christmas Exodus, for a week you went home for Christmas and New Years. Tell ya though it was a .... going back as the nic fits were twice as bad as the first go around.
    I did sneak a smoke with another guy once, he got caught, I didn't. Needless to say after seeing the punishment he received....I didn't do that again.
    The worst though was our barracks were right next to the Marines AIT equivalent barracks. They were allowed to smoke and our Drills frequently visited their smoke shack, in full view to times indeed!

    No smoking or anything in Basic now. Basic for me was Ft. Dix 1975. That's when smoking started for me. Cigarettes in the C-Ration accessory packet. That & not having to do every cruddy detail the Drill would find for the non-smokers when they hollered "Smoke 'em if ya gottem!!"

    lol "Don't look at me in that tone of voice" and "Shut your mouth when you are speaking to me" were two of my drill sergeant's favorite phrases

    There was one kid in my boot DIV that got a chance to smoke, but he was throwing up blood and had to get rushed to the ER. The RDC's felt that he at least deserved a cigarette. One of my old Air Force buddies from college that went through basic before Korea said they got a chance to smoke on Sundays. Other than having the perfect scenario occur for you, you'll have to be patient like the rest of us.

    Hey I was in the army and yeah you could very easily hide a little Ecig & vape in the bathroom.
    But how you going to charge it???
    Can't hide away enough batteries or for that matter e juice.
    There is absolutely NO WAY you can vape.
    Hell you will be so busy it won't be a problem anyway.

    Pff...we got the ever-loving stuffing smoked out of us if we even asked.
    The old "smoke 'em if you got 'em" no longer applies - no cigs, no chew, no vaping, nothing.
    I don't doubt that it will change soon - I'm hearing nowadays kids can have their cellphones at BCT (at least in the Army).
    Hell, I went through 5 years ago and we still had DS' smacking people around willy-nilly.
    Then again, it WAS Fort Benning...
