Vaping etiquette: How to vape without annoying people around

Is it ok to vape indoors? Around 2.2 million people smoke e-cigarettes in the UK but many are still confused over the etiquette of it all. Here's a guide on what is and what isn't OK to do.

It’s fair to say vaping has taken off nationally with around 2.2m adults now using an electronic cigarette. However, according to The Mirror , the social etiquette around where and when to smoke e-cigs or vape, remains a bit of a grey area.

Social etiquette experts Debrett's have issued a guide to polite VAPING - including never vaping in bed or blowing vapour into someone's face. Although it’s doubtful experts are needed to know that blowing cherry vapour clouds in someone’s face could be construed as rude.

Over a third of vapers also admit that they are often unclear of areas where vaping is or is not allowed. While eight in ten vapers claim to be considerate of others, a third of non-vapers say there is a lack of 'vaping decency'.

So, to clear the air on vaping decency, e-cig brand Vype has partnered with etiquette experts Debrett's to help ease the confusion and add a little decorum to vaping.

In a restaurant, a queue and in bed are among the no-go areas for vaping, according to an accompanying poll of 2,000 adults by Vype. Blowing vapour in someone's face, during a job interview and in a confined space such as a lift are also a no-no - just common sense for the most part.

And the Debrett's Guide to Vaping Etiquette advises that the main rule of thumb is "not to assume it's acceptable - and always check first". When vaping at work, "exercise moderation - you wouldn't want your boss to think you're more interested in your e-cigarette than your email".

And they discourage the creeping trend of 'stealth vaping' - where users conceal their device and craftily grab a puff.

They caution: "It is of course possible to vape discreetly, with minimal exhalation of vapour. But nobody wants to be 'outed' in a non-vaping zone, and stealth vaping was considered to be a faux pas by our survey respondents.It's best to wait until you're somewhere where it's acceptable to vape so that you can do so openly."

And the guide also offers advice to non-vapers who might feel moved to confront a vaper about his or her habit. "Decisions about where or where not to vape, and where to allow vaping, are largely discretionary, and civilised vaping is dependent on good manners, from vapers and non-vapers alike."

Katherine Lewis from Debrett's said:

Vaping is a relatively modern phenomenon and, as such, etiquette is still being established. It's not difficult to be a respectful vaper though - you just need to be courteous and ask permission before engaging in behaviour that may affect others.
