Explaining electronic cigarettes to your boss or co-workers will require taking an assertive approach. Why? You want to educate them before they can criticize you—or begin to voice their doubt about the value of e-cigarettes.

Matter-of-fact, stay as non-emotional as possible, and make sure you understand the basics of how an e-cig works by looking up “electronic cigarette” on Wikipedia. This way, you can refer your associates to the Wikipedia website, if they want to learn more.

Long gone are the days when you were allowed to smoke in the workplace at your work station.  You may not even remember when it was allowed.  For most of you working in offices or other indoor environments, the ash tray on the desk, the conference table or in the lunch room disappeared before you were born, never to be seen again unless you happen to be employed in one of the very few indoor workplace environments that still allow smoking.

“Isn’t smoking an e-cigarette just like smoking tobacco?”  You have heard the question many times and have lost count.  The answer has always been and will always be deceptively simple; so simple, many opponents of e-cigarettes stumble over it, ignore it, belittle it and generally scoff at the suggestion, even if they take the time to hear the brief answer: “No.”

Let’s concentrate on the one fact that is at the forefront of concern to tobacco smokers who are absorbing the deluge of...
