Thoughts on Juuling in your office (not in common spaces like office kitchen, water cooler, etc.) Go!

There was an associate at my old (NY Biglaw) firm who would chew tobacco in his office. For the longest time I thought he had a facial deformity and so would try to be completely respectful even if I couldn't understand what he was saying. Then I saw him use his spit cup in a meeting.....

In the Midwest, this is common practice to walk around with a fat lippy in.

I was doing it until my boss walked in and I totally hit my Juul and blew the smoke out without thinking. I apologized, he didn’t care, but I quit Juul soon after

I will never understand why people who are clearly clever enough to make it to the 'big boy lawyer world' still turn out stupid enough to have a smoking addiction.

Addiction is just a symptom of bad mental health. Sure you can use willpower to prevent yourself from taking the next shot, but there is something else inside you that is making you desire the shot, and that something is going to bubble up one way or another. They way you get rid of it is seeking professional help or otherwise becoming mentally healthier. The fact that we are in a profession where people can choose to bill 2400 hours per year but cannot kick nicotine, alcohol and coke goes to show that no, it's not intelligence or willpower or any other personal characteristic, it's mental health.

Solid no but also no in common spaces. Treat it like cigarettes and take it outside.

Juuls were a thing at my firm a few months ago. Then all the news about it being just as bad as a cigarette and worse if you consider you’re ingesting 10x more nicotine came around. I haven’t seen one in months

Well, if nobody can see it if your door is closed, I’m not opposed. What, I’m going to take the elevator 20+ floors down and walk outside just to take a rip of my Juul? My partner would be furious about the lost time (and I’m 99% sure he’s doing the same in his cavernous office).

I thought my firm was chill, but Partner 4 is making me recalibrate my standards entirely. if I saw a partner vaping in his office my first instinct would be to fire him, then when I remembered how hierarchies work I'd just laugh my ass off.

I Juul at my desk all day

Honestly if my lawyer was juuling in the office, I’d think “Well I guess I’m going to jail”

funnylike

Really though? How would you know if the lawyer was doing that? Given you can’t know unless you saw it, how does that change anything about the lawyers performance?... the context implies a minimal amount of discretion (i.e., juuling behind closed doors but still in the office - not in front of clients, superiors, or even co-workers)
