Does vaping etiquette exist? What rules do you follow when v

Postby Nick9 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 4:55 pm

Even though we feel like we’ve been talking about vaping forever, it’s still relatively new — especially when it comes to the dos and don’ts. Even countries seem to be on very different pages when it comes to vaping regulations — and things get even less clear with individual vapers.

So, are there any established rules of vaping in public? Does vaping etiquette even exist?

Some people say that you shouldn’t vape where you wouldn’t smoke. But that does not always make sense. Vaping is not the same as smoking and even certain establishments like clubs or pops may have different rules when it comes to smoking and vaping. A lot of bars and cafés would allow vaping on their premises while featuring a no smoking sign. In fact, fewer restrictions may be one of the reasons why smokers switch to vaping in the first place.

Some of the long-time vapers we’ve asked confirm that the best policy here is to ask permission before you start vaping in any establishment and it’s best no not walk into a cafe or bar already puffing on your vape.

Blowing large clouds with lots of other people around is also not a good idea. While it has been proven to not be as harmful as cigarette smoke and, unlike smoke, vapor does not have a strong odor that will settle in someone’s hair or clothing, it can still be irritating. Thus, it is strongly advised to try to direct your vapor away from where there are people because even vapers may find someone else’s vape clouds irritating.

Stealth vaping is another thing to consider. As our vape gadgets get smaller and more discreet, vaping without attracting attention has become really easy. As stealth vaping is slowly turning into an art form, there are still some guidelines vapers are advised to stick to. Thus, vaping in any place where it is officially forbidden is generally not advised — especially in places where this can lead to serious consequences. For instance, stealth vaping on a plane has already resulted in a number of arrests of vapers on landing.

If you are a guest in someone’s house, it’s always a good idea to ask the host if vaping in their house is okay. If you feel that your hosts are not particularly open to the idea, it’s better not to get into a debate and simply vape outside. With that, if you feel that people are genuinely interested in what vaping is, make sure you have some facts or references up your sleeve to make your case.

Finally, paying attention to vaping rules is especially important when visiting other countries. Some have very strict vaping regulations and you may get into quite a bit of trouble if you are not aware of them. Thus, make sure to do some research on local vaping regulations before traveling or even consult some local vapers for advice.

Have you ever had any issues when vaping in public? What rules do you generally keep to?

Don't assume that hotels allow vaping - better to check when you book.

Don't attempt to discreetly "stealth vape" in vape-free zones - it's best to wait until you can vape openly.

Don't be shy of romance with non-smokers - according to Debrett's research one in five of them would happily date a vaper. That's five times the number who would consider a date with a smoker.

The only rule I try to follow is not to irritate other people. I know some flavors and even salt stick are rather specific, and many people just can't stand vapers exactly for that reason. Anyways, thanks for the info.
