The 9 Etiquette Rules of Vaping
It’s great that vaping is catching on and more and more smokers are turning to vapes and ecigs instead of analogs. There aren’t many laws that restrict vape usage, but don’t be a jerk about it.
9. Don’t vape in the movie theaters. The light from your vape is distracting enough and a huge ploom of vapor can be annoying.
8. Don’t vape at the dinner table. Contrary to popular belief that vaping is allowed anywhere, vaping while eating is kinda rude. Vaping at the dining table is similar to talking on your cell phone while dining. Others may not appreciate your vapor hovering over their table.
7. Don’t vape in an open office. Unless you want your coworkers to think that you’re an inconsiderate jerk, keep the vaping out of an open office and take it outside. Fresh air never hurt anyone.
6. Don’t vape in a public restroom. Don’t be that guy. You know, the one that sneaks off to the bathroom to sneak a toke. You’re not in high school anymore. Take your vape outside and be courteous to those that don’t vape.
5. Vaping isn’t for quitters. Vaping isn’t the healthiest activity in the world, but it sure beats lighting up an analog. Stick with it and don’t give in to the dark side.
4. Don’t vape on public transit. Vaping in tight quarters is just rude. People that don’t vape can’t get away from you in an airplane, bus, or subway. When in doubt, err on the side of courtesy.
3. Don’t look down on analog smokers. Everyone is fighting their own battles. If you’re vaping, you were most likely an analog smoker in the past. Don’t look down on those that are struggling with their addictions. Tell them about vaping, but don’t be a jerk about it!
2. Don’t vape around children. This should go without being said, but vaping around children is just irresponsible. Nicotine is addictive and vapes with nicotine are addictive. Although vaping is a much healthier alternative to smoking, you wouldn’t want to promote a nicotine habit to any child.
1. Don’t leave ecigs, refils and wrappers lying around. They can be swallowed by babies and pets. It is all about common sense here.
