    I vaped once in the movie theater before the coming attractions started. I don't want to be disrespectful. I don't like to stealth vape. It's pretty pointless to me. If we're trying to normalize vaping, why should we hide it?

    If I saw a cloud of vapor drifting up in between my line of sight of the screen, I would politely ask that person to knock it off. Its like people texting during a movie - they aren't making noise, but the light from the screen sure is annoying.

    I agree. I vaped once in the movie theater BEFORE the coming attractions started. Vaping during a movie (unless you're in the back row of the cinema) is just a nuisance to others.

    Stealth vaping in movie theaters is fine with me ...
    considering everything else people do during the movies.
    it's no big deal. No one even notices when I stealth vape.

    Aside from the gym, I vape everywhere. Two reasons:
    1. To raise awareness.
    2. I simply don't give a ****.

    The movies would be no big deal for me as I always sit in the very back row anyway, and I usually don't go during peak hours. If it were crowded or I was somehow forced to sit somewhere other than the very back, I'd be cool about it and just wait until the movie was over. I wasn't an inconsiderate smoker; I won't be an inconsiderate vapist, either. I'm just cool like that. :2cool:

    No one, as of yet, has said anything to me about it, either. Then again, I'm not overtly flaunting it. I carry a gun, too, but I don't open-carry or tell anyone about it if I'm not asked.

    I will be glad when we see more and more people doing this. I worry though that they, anti nicotine people, are going to try to say these are bad too and try to prevent us from using them in public. The only places I have vaped so far in a public place is the restrooms at Joann Fabrics and Walmart. Wish I had the guts you do. We shouldn't have to feel ashamed !

    i haven't try in malls or public restaurants yet, but I believe that it will be an educating process for majority of the public that have no idea about e-cigarette. When Spring comes going to take it to the golf course and no more cigarette butts thrown on the fairway, rough...

    I vape everywhere, including at work and on the bus. Never had a problem. The key is knowing how, and when, to go stealth

    I vape most everywhere I go. If I'm at a bar of a restaurant (like last week) I asked the bartender if it was ok to use it first, and she was cool with it and actually had one herself. But the one she had was a cheap knockoff that really didn't satisfy and she never really got into using it much at all. I taught her, and her co-workers who were rather impressed that having a decent ego style with a decent carto/viva nova and good juice can make all the difference in the world. There were several patrons that at first were doing the 'OMG he's smoking at the bar! I thought it was banned' talk, and then I explained to them that it was just water vapor and no more harmful then a steaming cup of coffee.

    I don't think anything of it. If an employee of an establishment tells me to "put it out" I'll just laugh and put it in my pocket. To my knowledge, the only place in IN that has any sort of ban that includes vaping is Marion County, so I'll definitely play nice when I'm in Indianapolis. (Isn't it weird that I can legally carry a loaded firearm in most public places but can't vape in some of those very same places?)


    I never pull it out in public, but I do vape in public.

    We're still talking about vaping, right?

    EEEEK ... 2nd hand vapor !!
    :p

    That's a joke
    You would have to lip-lock with someone and blow the vapor
    in their mouth for them to get any nicotine!

    So my ways have changed a bit. 9 times out of 10 I won't vape indoors unless it's my home, but that 1 time I'll usually just take a quick vape and hold it to absorb as much as possible(aka stealth vape)
    When I smoked I never lit up around the girlfriend, but vaping I'll occasionally take a hit while in the bathroom or if she's zonked out

    E-smoking will never be sociably accepted by the public.
    At best ... only reluctantly tolerated by the public.

    I agree whole heartily with, If we don't bring awareness to all around us daily then people will just listen to the news and make their opinions based on ignorant comments based on zero facts.

    I don't think it matters how much the "public" is educated about the harmlessness of vaping. People have an inherent need to tell other people how to live and to feel superior to them. All the old stanbys are gone that people used to feel superior to those around them. Anything to do with nicotine is going to be considered harmful and all of the obliviots will jump at the chance to ban it. They will get all the fodder they need from idiots like Rachel Ray and the rest of the lame stream media. The fight against vaping hasn't even begun yet. Most of us "vapers" are ex-smokers. We were treated like second hand citizens for that. Vaping will be no different. They will just be attacking the same old group for trading one vice for another, equally harmful one ( in their opinion).
