Using an e-cig at the gym

Scumbag_GilScumbag_Gil Member Posts: 397 Member Member Posts: 397 Member
I just got an e-cig. I was wondering if it would be weird if I used it at my gym. Has anyone done it or have seen someone else do it?

    Ya that would be totally weird. Why would you want to use it in the gym? Did you used to smoke in the gym as well?

    Not weird at all. Just be sure to rehydrate at the end of the workout with a 40 of Olde English.

    :laugh: Very weird....but then again, I once tried to convince my girlfriends that eating chips while walking on the treadmill wasn't weird 'cause I'd skipped lunch :tongue:

    Smoking is a lounge-y thing, not a gym thing...don't be that guy :laugh:

    It's only weird if you take it to the swimming baths.

    Most gyms are non-smoking - and that includes e-cigs.

    It's just vapor, n the nicotine gives me an awesome rush/pump/energy. I seriously think I may be on to something.

    Or on something, at least. You do know that nicotine constricts the blood vessels and sets you up for stroke or heart attack, even without the cigarette smoke, right?

    Meth also provides a great rush and you can work out for DAYS! Why not try that?

    Addiction is addiction and what you're feeling is the reward center in your brain from the craving you created by smoking or vaping that last cigarette. It's not a rush. It's called quieting a craving. Heroin addicts, crack addicts...they get that same "reward" when they get their drug of choice.

    Still plenty of crap left in the exhale. It's not like your lungs magically absorb everything except the water vapor. I know I'd be seriously annoyed if someone was vaping near me in the gym.

    They are still harmful. I used to work at a company that manufactured the e-liquid that goes in them. They contain nicotine, and depending on the manufacturer (most of them are Chinese imports) they are ladened with other chemicals and are unregulated too. Some manufacturers have more pure formulas though and are transparent about whats in it, but even so there is still nicotine in there.

    My friend smoked an e-cig at the movie theater. It was weird, but nobody complained or told her to stop.

    if you need the nicotine THAT badly, just chew gum.

    you're going to look silly doing squats with a blue sticking out of your head.

    This. Even if there is no need to be concerned about passive smoking (which we don't know yet, because there's not enough research about e-liquid yet) then you're still not setting yourself up to be efficient at your workouts.

    I would say it would be a better idea to use it before/after because you may irritated other people at the Gym. And like a previous poster said, did you used to smoke IN the gym? No. Also check with the rules of your gym first I know some places do not allow e-cigs inside.

    +1 to meth. Great preworkout.

    I say do what you gotta do! Just make sure your gym allows e-cigs. You will probably get stares, though, so beware :)
