As vaping continues to climb in popularity as a prominent past-time, it becomes increasingly important to understand basic vaping etiquette within public spaces. After all, while the sweet sent of your lush e-juice sample pack isn’t a bother to you, it may spark the sensitivities of those who are around you. So, whether you’re out on-the-go, on your break at work or in a shared, common space, remember to be mindful of how your e-cig can affect others. That being said, here are a few helpful guidelines you can use as a vaper moving forward.
Understand the importance of asking
Whether you ask the joiner at your bus stop if they mind your clouds or you’re courteous enough to check with the waiter to see if patio vaping is okay, asking those that may be affected by the proximity of your vaping is a very diligent way to show respect. After all, you wouldn’t want to give off the impression that vapers are bad-mannered and you will quickly notice how appreciative people are when their feelings are considered. However, keep in mind that in most cases vaping usually falls under the same rules and public regulations as smoking a combustible cigarette.
Keep your clouds to yourself
Just because your e-juice produce vapor that’s comprised of safe, regulated ingredients, it doesn’t mean that passersby enjoy thick clouds floating in their direction. While this tip seems as if it should be common sense, it’s important for you to take note of where you’re are exhaling your vapor. Blowing it upwards or downwards towards your feet may prove to be the best way to prevent spreading it around and most people will appreciate your courtesy. Also, do your best to not vape in the closeness of children, remember to take a few steps away from the entrances of public buildings and try to be observant of the which direction the wind may be blowing that day.
