    I don’t know whether I’ve thought about my momma every day for the last eight years… but I’ve thought about smoking every day for the last eight years.

    Good job. Keep it up. Make it to three years and one month.Report

    I used an e-cig to quit my 2-3 cigarettes a day habit and I haven’t looked back. The etiquette issue resonates with me because I never take it outside the house since they have such a bad rap in social situations and out on the town generally. It’s hard to tell whether that’s because of poor vaping behavior or because smoking out of an electric doodad looks inherently ridiculous.Report

    I continue to be mostly allergic to vaping liquids and I continue to mostly support only the very lightest of regulatiosn on those liquids *despite* being allergic, because it’s such an important health issue.

    That said, the people who insist on their “right to vape” in the fishing library of my fishing private school are still gonna get the boot, even as I hope they keep vaping instead of smoking. (We also don’t allow hot plates or tea kettles. Because BOOKS AND FIRE THAT’S WHY. Even if the chances are minute, the risk is huge. Also I’m not the only one with allergies.) So I’m glad etiquette is starting to get more notice.Report

      (PS As a general PSA, it’s not just the flavors people can be allergic to, so that person coughing at your unscented vaping is not necessarily being a dick. I am somewhat allergic to most types of glycerin, including “food-friendly” ones. Yes, that’s as big a pain in the rear as you are imagining it is. Vaping is very low down on the list of glycerin problems. But when it does show up, it’s a lot harder to avoid, since it’s out of my control.)Report

    Will,
    Just buy a bucket load of it and mix it yourself. (I did this with incandescent lights a few years back-although it wasn’t a bucket load.) Buy enough to barter with other folks perhaps too. All else fails, you can take a day “vacation” to mexico and buy so fur sure.Report
