James Donessoni has been vaping at his desk for four years. Every 10 minutes or so, the Rhode Island graphic designer takes a drag on his e-cigarette, inhaling an aerosol made from heated liquid nicotine. It smells like cinnamon or Red Bull, his flavors of choice, the puff of white mist dissipates in seconds, and no one in his open office space complains, he said, not even his boss.
And the days of leaving his desk for a cigarette break every hour or two? Long gone.
