Electronic Cigarette Etiquette: Some Tips For E-Cigs Smokers
Here Are The Dont:
- Don’t vape in front of small children: E-cigarettes are a product for adults, so never vape in front of children. If you do, then you will no doubt get an earful from their mothers or fathers near you trying to protect their children.
- Don’t exhale a large: Obtrusive cloud of vapor in public locations, alsocalled “cloud chasing” and it’s just objectionable. If you’re a cloud chaser, then do it at home or at organized events.
- Don’t vape inside a restaurant: Take your e-cid outside unless you know the place is vapor friendly.
- Don’t EVER exhale vapor in the face of someone.
- Don’t Vape in any theatre: Exhaling clouds of vapor in a dark room with a projector will annoy the crap out of everyone else. Also, most e-cigs have tips that light up, possibly causing distractions for both users and the rest of the audience. So, go to the back of the theatre or wait for intermission for a quick puff.
Here Are Some Do’s
