Vaping is a relatively new activity, with its widespread use only coming about in the past several years. Yet despite its adolescence, anyone who vapes frequently will be able to tell you that vaping carries with it a certain set of rules of etiquette by which all serious vapers swear. Everybody knows the all famous "puff puff pass" rule, but here's a list of some more rules for vaping, so that you’ll never meet with the icy glare of more experienced vapers:
Folks, vaping is a personal thing. People who love their vape are protective of it, and do not take kindly to someone crowding their turf. Kind of like how you would never rifle through a woman’s purse, or take a cigarette from someone’s pack without asking: If you do it, you’re probably asking for trouble.
People guard their social media presences very carefully nowadays; in fact, a person’s social media presence can often times be instrumental in whether they land a job they wanted. It’s a social media best practice to always seek someone’s permission before posting a pic of them vaping. And really, why do you have your phone out at all? Put it away and get to vaping!
Vaping is a great experience, especially when everyone brings something to the table. Be the person that’s always contributing, not the person that’s never contributing.
Some people have a problem with certain kinds of product. It is only right to give people a heads-up regarding what you’re about to vape.
On the one hand, there are some places where this wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing -- in several countries, blowing smoke in someone’s face is a sign that you like them romantically-- often times it can be considered rude and even offensive. Case in point: in many Western societies, blowing smoke in someone’s face signals to them that you want to fight them. Vaping is supposed to be a fun and relaxing activity, so don’t be the person that makes it something else.
There are several reasons behind this one. On the one hand, the old person next to you should be able to enjoy their pea soup without having to take in a huge lungful from your Titan 2. Also, many restaurants take their no-smoking policy very seriously, and we’d hate for you to be escorted from the place after only just diving into your meatloaf.
Places like concerts are fine for vaping, just make sure not to draw too much attention to yourself. Much like a restaurant, you would hate for the people working there to mistake it for something else.
