    I vape in public but I don't vape in public non-smoking area except the toilet when you have some deal going.
    Guys and Gals, hope to see you all vaping happily. Maybe turn up for the next meet up.

    I have not think of the risk. Well I bet most of the SG vapers are not worried about this so long they don't vape in non-smoking area or in malls.
    I bet most of us vape with friends and started to creates the awareness.
    so how did u know about e-cig? You must have seen someone vaping.
    If everyone will Is to just hiding in the dark, aren't we not going to the future of SG vapers.
    I have been vaping in public and ever since, I have converted many. Have you try that?

    Is ok if they look at u weird. Don't blame them for that as I get that alot too. The don't know the truth until they get one.
    Join us for the gathering and u will see how we vape.
    But if u afraid of vaping in public than those smoker should be as they are not envoirmental friendly and they even caused their love ones to breath in 2nd hand smoke.
    Know ur rights. You got more to learn.

    sure, gladly join for an outing.. just pm me time/place.. i understand all the pros/cons of e-cigs, just saying that in sg it is pretty hard to get people to change the social stigma associated with smoking.. regardless of how it looks like..

    regards,

    It not that easy. We have try approach government from all sector. They just can't approve this as they are worry the long term effect and hence if anyone have any great ideas, share with me.
    We have all the clinical trial test report and device manufacture reports. But government just don't buy it. If it will to be easily approved, I should have already setup my shop in the heart of singapore.

    Vape or smoke, Judicim is right there's a social stigma to it, especially in Singapore.

    Yea you're right about the long term effect, nobody really knows the effects of it 10,20 years down the road. I guess I'm just contend with e cigs because ultimately, I'm using them to quit.

    So far, only vaped while walking not when standing still or sumthin. Vaped a few quick ones @ Kampong Glam Cafe just now. Tahan too long w/o nic till i can't concentrate while having discussion with my photographer at KGC. When i began vaping, all eyes were on me by other smokers, even when i was trying to vape in stealth mode...

    It's ok to vape outside in public. Just know where and when. Don't vape in obvious places like in the mall and etc. it should be fine

    So far I've vaped almost anywhere: while walking, while waiting for someone, at smoking area of coffee shops, at designated smoking areas. As long as don't vape in non-smoking areas I think should be fine

    Same here, Flamethrower24 bro. I had been vaping for 1 week. But then, I vape when I'm outside. Etc, walking, after lunch and vape just outside the coffeshop. Indeed, a lot of eyes are at you. But I still don't get it, why our Govt doesn't buy it whereby it's proven that it's better than smoking.

    Alright, I may be a newbie in vaping. I mean, yes, it's still a drug, but then, isn't it better? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    same question has been ask around by vapers in singapore.. well basically, to make it short, e-cig make the goverment income lower.. u obviously know that tax for analog is high in singapore right..? what about e-cig..? they also have tax but, can u compare the difference..? yes.. its very obvious..

    well, probably there are other hidden reason which yet to be discovered by any of us.. who knows..? what we know only government put their income 1st then the health of the people.. anyone disagre..?

    I agreed with BladeZ bro. Well, there maybe a lot of undiscovered things. What you stated there is what a lot of vapor user thinking. In the end, everything still under control.

    We can only hope for the best. We vapers know that we are not doing anything bad here. In fact it's all beneficial (health issues: no tar, no tobacco, no analogs' dangerous chemicals. Environmental issues: no littering of cigarette butt, no second hand smoke, no ash, etc). Let's just hope that our gov will realize this soon and turn things around in our favor. Although chances are low, it's still possible
