Sure, vaping may not be tobacco, but that doesn't mean you can vape wherever and whenever you please.
While the first patent for an electronic cigarette was filed in 1930, it has only been recently that vaping has become mainstream. This has lead to a number of gray areas in both legislation and etiquette.
In order to keep non-vapors inside, a little politeness goes a long way. Here are a few things to keep in mind:Where can you Vape?
In the privacy of your own home, you can vape whenever you like. However, if you're in public you should remember that even if you're not exhaling smoke, not everyone will want to inhale your second-hand vapor.
Restaurants can also be tricky, since people may not want to smell your vapor while they're trying to eat.
When you're standing outside, keeping a few steps in between you and the general public will go a long way towards keeping vaping socially acceptable.
Vaping is usually unwelcome at private businesses like shops or the cinema. Clubs and bars will vary depending on each country and state, but it's a good idea to ask a staff member if it's ok before vaping.What Social Situations are Ok?
Just like you wouldn't smoke a cigarette near children, avoid vaping as well. You should also never leave any equipment unattended around pets or kids, as it can be a fire hazard.
Most non-smokers are unlikely to object to people vaping in their vicinity, but keep in mind that many people are unaware that second-hand vapor is safe. If you have a friend or coworker who is open to discussion, check out the article Top 10 E-Cigarette Myths Debunked.What About Cloud Chasing?
Cloud chasing is when vapers blow large clouds of vapor. While many vapers find this enjoyable, it can be intimidating for the public, particularly when you do it indoors.
Letting out a thin stream of vapor is much more unobtrusive compared to an obnoxious cloud which often looks like smoke. If you love cloud chasing, do it in the privacy of your own home or in a quiet corner of your local park and practice subtlety in public.What if I keep it Hidden?
Some vapers practice 'stealth vaping' which is when they hide their equipment, hold their vapor in for longer than they usually would and slowly exhale.
This sounds good in theory- after all, you're probably not bothering anyone right? The trouble is, if you're doing it where you know vaping is banned, you're likely to get caught.
This gives vaping a bad name. And since it often looks similar to smoking, people who haven't seen vaping before may get annoyed. This kind of behavior damages the reputation of vaping, so always be sure to ask if you can vape and respect the rules.It's About Respect
Ultimately, vaping etiquette is about having respect for the people around you. Since most people haven't consented to having vapor blown near them, exposing them to your vapor is likely to make them feel uncomfortable.
It doesn't matter how many facts and figures you have up your sleeve about the safety of vaping. While it's great to educate people about how great vaping is, keep in mind that practicing vaping etiquette will make it less likely that it's legislated in the future.
