    Has it affected your job? Does your job affect your vaping?

    Im currently an archaeology student and in the summer I work as a CRM field archaeologist, and also as a seafood clerk at Tops Markets.

    As far as affecting my job at tops, it hasnt affected my job, nor has my job affected my vaping.

    The archaeology, however, is the big win. When I was smoking analogs(still cant get that term, makes me think of watches. Or confuses me because of the word analogue, which e-cigs ARE, but anywho) Id tend to take a lot of breaks. We run on a very limited time schedule, weve got to get projects done under budget and on time, so it tended to get in the way of work. Plus, you cant smoke over a hole in the ground. Interferes with C-14 dating and such. This is why the vaping is nice. I can vape over the holes, inside while Im working on cataloguing. My biggest worry is the dirt. You would not believe where dirt can end up. I just dont wanna fry anything from shorting it. But all in all,vaping has been great.

    Analog is like analog vs digital (as in watches)
    Analogue is an item serving the purpose of another
    But yeah - they are each alternate spellings of the other

    I'm an embedded systems programmer and can vape at my desk though I avoid annoying or tobacco-like smells. Fortunately what I mostly like now is dark cocoa tobaccos (mostly cocoa) and sweet vanillas.

    I'm a commercial videographer and editor for a web media company by day. At night I'm the CEO of a web start-up I own with a partner of mine. In time I hope to be done with the former and only doing the latter.

    Night Manager for CVS. I never vape on the floor or anyplace where customer care could be needed (it's unprofessional... like chewing gum), but my el-cheapo 510 is usually tucked behind my ear like a pen for those little opportunities where it might be deemed appropriate. (also useful as a hair ornament or to hold up a bun)
    Bonus! My hair smells like melon mint when I get off work!

    I'm a Paralegal, so I spend most of my time at work writing, filing legal documents, playing games and reading ECF. I vape all day and it's actually increased my work productivity, no more breaks every half hour to stand outside and smoke a cancer stick. My Boss is really happy I made the switch, and even wanted advice on what to get his daughter once he saw it worked for me.

    I manage a retail store and travel frequently as a corporate trainer; I can vape in my office, but I keep it on the QT on the selling floor. I still go outside for a "smoke break" because I need to get out of the building periodically.

    I love being able to vape in hotel rooms! The no smoking rooms anywhere travel thing was getting to be a real drag, either going down the stairwell to the side entrance in my pajamas first thing in the morning to have a smoke or trying to smoke out of a window that won't open more than an inch.

    I'm a grunt. vaping has been a huge help in my job. I can spend 8 hours at a time on the road and you can't smoke or dip in government vehicles but the commander is fine with vaping. Plus it was a big help with my physical training, I can run without hacking up marlboro flavored gunk now.

    I'm a network administrator at a University. I vape all day at my desk and no one cares. One of my co-workers also vapes. We were the last of the smokers and we both quit around the same time. I no longer take smoke breaks and I can keep a steady flow of nicotine in my system which helps my stress levels.

    I am a stay at home mom and my kids LOVE not having to smell the stinky cigarettes anymore! I still sometimes get "looks" from people that think im smoking in the car with my children but maybe ill just get a PV that cant be mistaken for a cigarette

    Truck driver here, never could smoke while hauling flammables, oxidizers, or explosives but last year the company I work for banned smoking anywhere on company property or in company vehicles which made smoking difficult if not next to impossible since 90% of what we transport is either flammable or an oxidizer. PV's have certainly made my life at work easier.

    I own a web company and it mainly involves me working in a lab setting. I take vape breaks outside of the lab because it just doesn't feel like good lab procedure to be vaping in the lab, and I need the chance to sit down and collect my thoughts for a few minutes.

    I hope you feel better!

    Retired Navy Chief, 20 years in submarine communications... now six years as a software test/product verification engineer. While I admit it's nice to vape indoors when the weather's bad, I'm too lazy or it's a day that ends in "y", I still step outside sometimes just to get off my .... every now and again.

    From what I hear, a lot of Submariners have switched to vaping since the smoking lamp has been permanently extinguished on-board subs. I can only imagine that sooner or later one of them will be cranking out some seriously crazy mods... ;)

    Wow, the room's filling up with retired Navy! I'm a retired Navy wife - my husband put in 20 (airdale). I'm "just" a housewife now, but I've always wanted to pretend to be an architect...

    Hi all,

    This is my first post. I'm a power transformer tech. I've been at this job for 25 years now and this comming November they are banning smoking anywhere on company property. This is what brought me to try vapeing. I got my first e cig about 3 weeks ago. I now have a fleet of mods. I stoped smokeing 2 weeks ago!!! I was a 2 pack a day smoker. I smoked for over 30 years and stoped in one week!!! I think the e cig is just magic.
