I am a software developer and some of my co-workers took up e-cigarettes (vaping) in the office to replace their cigarette habits. I did the same thing after getting manager approval. I asked my co-workers if any of them minded and none of them really said anything. 4 weeks later, one co-worker in particular is very vocal about me using my e-cigarette in the team area. I can't exactly move myself from the team area, since we're open office seating.
I feel a little betrayed by the sudden change of heart of this one person, but also that it seems no matter what compromises I make (Using it infrequently. Using a smaller model ecig. Making sure the vapor it produces is blown down and away from him, etc.) he remains completely opposed to the idea of me using it indoors.
I'm not sure if there is anything I can do besides give up my ecig, which will put me back on regular cigarettes, which I don't want to do. I am torn. Is it bad form to even use the ecig in the first place? Does anyone have any advice on how a compromise could be reached? Thank you.
