    I work in an office setting, with multiple people in a large open area. I have no problem vaping right at my desk. In fact it becomes a running joke: "Smells like someone smoked a bowl of straight cotton-candy in here!"
    I have my set-ups in a line with 3-5 bottles of liquid on my desk at any given time. I try not to be obnoxious and blow clouds but I no longer have to take smoke breaks outside! I'm often browsing ECF (been a lurker for a while now) during slow times, and sometimes I even have the option of playing with builds if its super slow.

    Just wondering if anyone else has the experience of being able to enjoy vaping (comfortably) in their workplace and/or what their co-workers have to say about it.

    I've been vaping up a storm in my cubcile for the past three years. When I first started vaping a Blu back in 2011, every single one of my co-workers was unbelievably supportive. "God, that smells good! What IS that?? No, wait don't tell me...*snifff* Banana?"

    Banana bread, actually! You can even taste the walnuts!
    No %$#t lol..and you're not smoking? At all?
    Nope!

    Lately, I sit in a different cubicle, surrounded by people I barely know. (Huge corporation..) But I stealth vape all day anyway, only using e-liquids that don't have a strong aroma. And I haven't had any problem with anybody. I don't know what I love more..vaping, or the people who surround me with their consideration in never wanting to see me smoke a cigarette again. Or the three converts to vaping I made right there in that same office.

    I vape all day at work - in the factory and in the offices. They all love it. Even the work hypochondriac is on board when i pointed out that PG kill germs!

    Every now and then i'll let them have a vote among themselves as to what flavour i'll vape the next day. I turned from a 40 a day stinking misfit into a portable air freshener that smokers are jealous of and everyone likes to see! I only cloud chase in the factory ;)

    Only way I can vape at work is stealth. My company (as per NY State laws) treats it the same as smoking.

    I vape away at my desk as does one other co-worker. Everyone seems to enjoy most of the flavours we use. The only complaint we ever get ironically comes from Captain Cologne, who apparently bathes in designer fragrance. Naturally we ignore him.

    I drive a freight train.
    No one cared that I smoked.
    No one cares that I now vape.
    If someone did care, I tell them to .... off and quit being a little ......

    I'm just back from a stealth vape break! But then, we have several empty offices, a loading dock, emergency stairwells, a second (empty) copy room and meeting rooms that are booked only half the time!

    Awesome! I too have gotten a person to switch over (kind of) and I'm always turning them onto good flavors and new juice companies.

    I feel lucky I dont have to stealth vape, but sometimes I end up exhaling toward the underside of my desk so as to not have a fog sitting around me. That could change my situation real quick.

    I work in an engineering and mathematical sciences lab at my university as a tutor. Naturally, the other college kids are pretty accepting, however, I know my boss is secretly conflicted about it. He has a hypersensitive nose so he can always smell it and can always guess what flavor I'm Vaping. First try, every time. He is rarely there though, like maybe an hour a day. Sometimes, new tutoree's will come in asking where they could get a donut. So in a nutshell, yes, sure do. No clouds though, usually hold it in for a little longer than normal so there's not as much.

    I vape at work everyday, not hiding it. No problems, everyone loves the smell. Usually use a ego with a mini protank on it.

    I vape at work everyday too, all day. I either use my Orchid clone V3 or my plumevail clone. With both, I french inhale and exhale through my nose and mouth for better absorption and smaller clouds

    While I'm sure I could get away with it (stealthily) or even ask if it was okay (and it probably would be), I don't wanna vape at work.

    I mean, technically it'd help with productivity (I wouldn't need to leave my desk/stop working to have a vape break) but I honestly enjoy going outside once every hour or so for that 5 minute break. I'm an IT dude, so I'm sitting in front of 4+ monitors all day every day. The break is necessary sometimes.

    I work in an office below the terminal at O'Hare and I am sadly not allowed to vape, I have to go outside onto the airfield in order to vape or in the bathroom and make it smell like delicious strawberry kiwi... but I wouldn't do that because that is against the rules.... ;)

    If your office has any openings let me know, I'd love to enjoy a workplace that actually allows/understands vaping as long as it's within reason.

    I do, but am waiting for the official policy to come out. Have my own office and keep a fan running. Not exactly stealth vaping but not gonna advertise what I am doing or flaunt it either. If I need a chain vape I go to the restroom

    I'm pretty lucky and both of my jobs are pretty open about vaping. My retail job asks that I don't do it on the sales floor if corporate is there. In my theatre job I vape backstage through the whole show. Can't really vaper on stage at a Victorian style comedy theatre though.

    Pretty interesting that although many of us are allowed to vape we tend to tone it down for the sake of respect for co-workers and upper management. I just dont like to "advertise" what I do even though the whole office teases me about it.

    I noticed someone else said it... but my productivity is up because I dont have to leave every hour for a smoke break either. I eat at my desk and I vape at my desk... that MAY be why my work doesnt mind me vaping, because I'm able to continue working and it doesnt distract from my job.

    Considering asking if it would be ok for me to do it, given that it would increase my productivity. Sometimes that nicotine is just the thing to wake you up during at, oh.. I don't know.. ~2pm lull..

    I drip at work and converted 3 of my coworkers to vaping and one more is giving it a half hearted try. To top it off they usually buy all my stuff i dont use/like!!

    I'm a "domestic goddess" -- no outside employment. However, there is a guy at my husband's workplace who vapes in the plant, at will, all the time, and nobody cares. In fact, that guy was my first intro to vaping; he gave my husband a "Fin" for me to try out, when my husband said he wished I could switch from smokiing to vaping. I didn't care for the Fin, got an Njoy, didn't like it or the Blu I got next either, but it was enough to get me sufficiently interested to google "e-cigarettes" and find my way here, back in January. Thank god for that guy, and for google, and for ECF!!!
