You’re not alone if you’ve ever been confused about when and where to vape, or about vaping etiquette in general. Not only are some of the rules around vaping ambiguous, but as you will find, many sources of information are written by non-vapers who feel they are entitled to lecture vapers about how to vape. Vapers disagree even among themselves about the proper way to vape politely when, where, and when not to vape. Let’s set things straight once and for all with a few rules (or suggestions, if you prefer) about vaping around others without raising complaints.
1. Act with common sense in public
The advice often given is not to vape in places where smoking is prohibited. However, what about pubs and other places that allow vaping? Even though there are places where you can vape freely, use common sense to avoid annoying the non-vapers in the area. Whenever you vape, always ask if it is okay with the person. Even if they don’t agree, be cool about it. It’s important to remember that by being a responsible, respectful person, you will help change how people view vaping.
2. Do not blow clouds of vapour into people’s faces
People who do not vape (and especially non-vapers) will become annoyed with vapour being blown directly at them. Despite the fact that it smells better and is less harmful than smoke, it can still irritate. In general, you can find somewhere other than your mate’s face to blow your cloud. You can also blow it anywhere else – towards an open area or even at the floor. Avoid people’s faces at all costs when exhaling, unless you know your friend doesn’t mind.
3. Don’t be a snob about vaping
Some vapers feel inferior to other vapers because they use different devices. It may be difficult to understand why someone who uses a steam-punk mechanical vape mod prefers an e-cigarette or a vape pen to someone who uses a custom-made steam-punk mechanical vape mod. It is important to remember that the right vape for you depends on a variety of factors, including your preferences, your technical ability, your experience, and your needs. Vaping communities encourage advice (when requested) and conversation, but snobbishness is not welcome. Try out some of the best vaping devices from SMOK UK, or Vuse!
4. Educate and inform – don’t preach or lose your temper
You shouldn’t be afraid to share what you know about vaping with others. Remember, however, that there is a fine line between informing and lecturing. Don’t preach to smokers – they will ask if they want to know. Keep your temper under control. You lose arguments when you lose your temper. Especially when faced with ignorance, staying calm may not always be easy. However, staying calm is fundamental to winning a debate.
These are a few suggestions and unwritten rules that you should follow so that you can enjoy vaping to the fullest without causing people to be offended or complain about your activities. The peace makes vaping enjoyable and hassle-free for everyone.
