4 Ways You Can Show Proper Vaping Etiquette Behaviors
Although vaping is becoming more and more common, there are still many people in this world who dislike the ideas underlying the hobby. To prove these anti-vapers wrong, it’s best to put on your best behavior. Here, we’ve 4 different ways you can show proper vaping etiquette around vapers and non-vapers alike.
Vaping Etiquette Tip #1: Be Aware of Your Surroundings
This tip is also probably the most crucial. The most annoying action a vaper could take would be to blow vapor near or in another person’s face and smothering their taste and smell senses with your e-juice flavor of choice, regardless if that person vapes or not. Therefore, if there are other people around, the easiest thing to do would be to act mindful. For instances, on a crowded street or in a music venue, those aren’t the best places to pull out your vape (unless you know everyone is vape-friendly), but if you’re alone then vaping is perfectly fine.
Vaping Etiquette Tip #2: Stealth Vaping
This tip is somewhat related to tip #1, in that the idea behind this type of etiquette is to be subtle about your vaping. Stealth vaping is a form of vaping where your vape and liquids are kept in as hidden a place as possible when you are not vaping, and sometimes even holding vapor longer than required to make the clouds smaller and more discreet. This can be done to not make your vaping a counterpoint of distraction in the workplace, and is a great way to impress your coworkers with restraint about your hobby. It must be said that stealth vaping in situations where it is otherwise not suitable for vaping is not something you should do. It’ll be detrimental to both your image and the vaping community’s image as a whole.
Vaping Etiquette Tip #3: Education
The main problems that non-vapers have with vaping are usually related to rumors they’ve heard over the years. This can be eternally frustrating, since you probably know how false these rumors actually are. The best thing you can do in this case is to see if whomever is perpetuating these rumors is willing to discuss vaping with you. If the person is willing, then take the time to have an in-depth conversation regarding what they know about vaping. By knowing your facts and presenting them in a clear and calm manner, it can actually be possible to win over non-believers to your side.
Vaping Etiquette Tip #4: Don’t Be Snobby
We all know vaping can become a pretty elite hobby. From the cloud chasers to the extreme Modders, different types of vapers flaunt their devices with pride. However, don’t forget to be a normal human being. Don’t look down on vapers for using a different device, and definitely don’t judge their character from just the device used. Be accepting and make sure to be friendly before you make any character judgements.
The most important thing you can do as a vaper is make you and the community as a whole look presentable and respectable. Keep these tips in mind when it comes time to vaping, and you can be part of this awesome movement.
