    I once went to a monster truck rally that was held in an indoor arena. Signs on the way in alerted all the people there that this was a non-smoking facility and that people smoking on "the premise" (they meant premises) would be ejected. In addition to inhaling carbon monoxide, everyone lost a little hearing that night. Loud as all hell.

Luckily, it's about as unhealthy as second hand smoke. I don't know if it is technically an allergy, but I did have asthma as a child, so it might be related to that. Also, it's probably a little bit psychosomatic. I anticipate hating the overwhelming scent of 100s of perfumes in the air, and if I do breathe it in I feel a reaction.

    Regardless, I don't think those counters should be shut down because some people might get an asthmatic reaction. They should just avoid those places.
    The reaction you're describing is because the perfume is being aerated. Once applied, the effects you describe no longer apply, unless a person is using inordinate amounts of perfume.

    By contrast, cigarette smoke is always aerated; that's why it's "smoke." And while perfume application is usually done in bedrooms or bathrooms, cigarette smoking is (used to be) commonplace almost everywhere.

    No. I'm also very sensitive to perfumes, and they need not be in aerosol form in order to be sickening. Some fragrances are worse than others.

    your post is rude. It's an addiction. Vaping is one of many good ways to quit.

    They taste like someone put ground plastic in them, although these smokers are immune to the taste and never really taste what they are smoking.

    e-cigarettes are shit. It's a bit pricy, but what you need to do is get an actual mod kit with a tank, and go to oils. I tell you, aI did this, and went immediately from 2 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day to 4 cigarettes a day, and the only reason I am even smoking those 4 is by choice. I still like the taste of traditional tobacco, occasionally, so whenever I take my dog out for her walks (about 4 times a day), I have a real cigarette. Thus, about 4 cigarettes a day.

    I did not pick up any...but I also get not get so close as to freak the people out either.

    Does the fog have flavor or smell?
    It depends. It the oil is flavoured, then it will have the sent of whatever the flavour is. It's just water vapour.

    I don't like e-cig sticks either but I was pleasantly surprised to like a cheap vape kit. A cartridge = a pack and it lasts me for days.

    Probably because a lot of the cig gets wasted. It sits there burning away your nicotine, polluting the air. This way, I take as much or little nicotine as I want right.

    I still smoke when I wake up out of habit I guess and I then I get all ew and go find the vape.

    I don't know. I was never able to find one of those cheep kits that still try to look like cigarettes that were strong enough to really work for me. Now, when I decided to spend the $120 for the start-up (Yeah, it was a little pricey, but then, again, do the math on how much you spend a month on cigarettes, and suddenly it doesn't seem so bad), that changed everything. Now I spend between $30 to $60 on oil a month (depending on how many bottles I buy), and I get to have interesting tastes, as well as get my nicotine fix.

    I broke the habit, finally, about 16 years ago. When they hit the 3 bucks a pack mark. I wasn't getting any younger and they sure as hell weren't getting any cheaper. But I doubt seriously I would find vaping a good substitute even if I found out tomorrow they WERE safe.

    But I chain vape.

    I stopped coughing within a month of vaping.
    Jeez Max, Your Avatar looks like you've been smoking since you were two years old.
