    I'm in the same boat. No nicotine allowed in the building and I have to drive off property to vape. I use nicotine gum between breaks and it does help. I also have a bag cooler that I keep ice packs with my vape stuff in.

    I spent 5 years vaping in the restroom at a very small business office :facepalm: Never was noticed - with the other's suggestions! Use higher nic than at home, hold it in as long as possible, blow through napkin or down your shirt. (I do this while out, pretty much anywhere)
    Great to hear your cravings are diminishing! :) It gets easier!

    This might be going against the grain, so to speak, but I strongly believe it's best to comply by the rules which limit tobacco consumption on the premises. As it is, most non-smokers don't know the difference and don't care to either.
    Yet, for the sake of vaping, which has proved to be an effective smoking cessation tool for people like myself; I can only suggest that it's better to comply with the existing rules and regs, than to be considered a nuisance. So in short, either gum/patches or go off-premise, until the general non-smoking public is better informed.

    Was going to suggest the same.

    A boss who doesn't even want the employees bringing in their cigarette BOXES sounds like someone who is very anti ..... be careful.

    Nic lozenges or gum helps.

    I'm still in school so I can't really vape unnoticed. But we do have breaks every hour, so it's not that much of an issue. When I'm home, I vape all the time I'm not right next to my kid.

    My job does not allow vaping inside, my super does not really care but to avoid issues I go into the stall. Nobody has ever noticed or said anything.

    That. But it's not ideal, as you shouldn't even vape if it's not permitted. Also, the smell might even get you busted. If you insisst on stealth vaping at work, try just vaping the base, without the flavoring, as it won't smell.

    I am allowed to vape as I wish at my office, so I can only imagine your position. Hang on and stay off the stinkies

    Before I retired last year, I stealth vaped for over a year at my desk without incident, using a mini PV (Ovale Elips) that could be completely concealed in my hand. I vape menthol juices only, always kept breath mints handy, and offered one to anyone who noticed any aroma, to throw them off the track ...

    Also kept a small desk fan running to disperse any trace of vapor, but a deep double inhale of high percentage PG juice reduced my vapor exhalations to almost nothing visible ...

    This was in an unusually oppressive office environment, where people routinely lodged HR complaints about any little thing that upset them. Strong coffee, ethnic foods, colognes and perfumes were the favorite targets of the "brittle people". One poor guy was reprimanded for eating corn chips, both the sound and the smell "offended" his neighbor ...

    Oddly enough, the frequency of complaints meant that nearly everyone was under suspicion for something, safety in numbers ...

    I sometimes miss the work itself, but I'm sure happy to be retired now ... :D
