2018 Vaping Etiquette Guide

2018 Vaping Etiquette Guide

While many objections to vaping are based on misinformation, there are some people whose negative opinions about e-cigarettes are based on an encounter with a vaper who is being inconsiderate.

This can hurt all vapers, whether they are being considerate or not. The last thing any of us wants is more vaping restrictions.

With that in mind, we’ve created this list of guidelines for practicing good vaping manners out there in the world.

Know the Rules
Knowing where you can vape is essential. There are many states and localities that now forbid vaping in the same places where cigarette smoking is banned. So, especially when you travel anywhere new, look up the vaping laws for that area. You don’t want to get in trouble for something that you can easily avoid.

Keep Away From Children
Vaping is never acceptable near schools, at playgrounds, or in any other public places that children frequent. If you’re visiting the home of a friend or family member who has children, be sure to ask before vaping and make sure you don’t vape around their children.

Select a Safe Space
In a crowded or packed area? It might not be the best place to pull out your Reactor Mega Mod. That said, if the scene seems right, just ask the people closest to you if they mind. They’ll likely appreciate your consideration and say that vaping is fine, but nothing will give the impression of being rude like busting out an e-cig and blowing vapor at the people around you in a crowded room.

Dining Out?
Though vaping is banned in many businesses that serve food, there are still some locations where it’s permitted. When spending money to eat out, everyone wants to enjoy their meal, no matter how simple it may be. Heavy clouds or scented vapes, even dessert flavored ones, have the potential to interfere with the dining experience of even the most tolerant individuals. So, whether sitting at the bar next to a group with a plate of wings, or at a table behind a couple with steaks, consider foregoing vaping until they’ve finished their meals.

Don’t Get Caught in a Fog!
While the vapor produced by some e-cigs is fairly minimal, like with nic salt devices, there are others that can create massive clouds in just one breath. If you’re dining or drinking outside, or in an expansive spot, this may not be an issue. But if you’re in a cozy bar, or at a house party, remember to take notice of how much vapor is in the air if the crowd doesn’t consist entirely of vapers. Even though it isn’t cigar or cigarette smoke, the aesthetics of excessive vapor hanging in the air can be, understandably, off-putting to non-vapers.

Odor Oversight
Sure, you may really dig on your tobacco-flavored e-liquids, but is the scent as easily detected to others as the taste is to you? If so, consider the consequences. Think: the finest brand name cologne or perfume might be alluring in small doses, but no one likes to sit next to “that guy” (or girl) who seems to have bathed in it. Vaping is the same. If you want to vape in public places, especially enclosed or in close contact with others, consider saving heavily scented vapes for more personal times — like at home or outside. Choose the lighter scents when going out.
