General Etiquette is definitely important and the cornerstones of modern society and can only be positively driven through the thought for others:
Consideration for others requires self-control.
Considerate Vapers know how to behave in social settings and will always make proper decisions while in public.
Consideration includes being polite and especially how we behave on social media.
One of the rudest things a smoker can do is to blow smoke into another person’s face. The same rule definitely applies when vaping. Even though vapors are perceived to be less toxic, the act of blowing vapor is rude in itself.
“VAPE” – Vaping Associated Preffered Etiquette:
Each vaper is expected to be aware of these facts regarding their preffered daily past time….
“Vaping is perceived to be potentially less harmful than smoking?”
“With vaping we tend to take in fewer or less toxins than our stinky smoking counterparts?”
“Vapor” or “clouds” should be less of a nuisance than smoke from a cigarette?”
This being said, as Vapers we all feel that we should be able to vape anywhere. By focusing on being considerate of others you positively drive and promote the basic and expected Vaping etiquette.
It makes a lot of sense that Confined spaces are not a good place for vaping.
There maybe people occupying the same space that will have to breathe in the vapors.
This may not be so pleasant for others around you.
A closed space means that the vapors will hang around longer and the concentration will rise with each cloud.
So where can you Vape?
DO IT AT HOME
You have the privacy to do what you like in your place.
Good Etiquette is to always be considerate and courteous and air out your space before having guests over.
TAKE IT OUTSIDE
Good etiquette is to go and vape outside and or find a suitable place downwind.
People around you perceive vaping to be just like smoking and vaping in or around them can be both offensive and inconsiderate.
Always be courteous and minful of not getting your vapor into the faces of others persons.
OUT AND ABOUT
It is always recommended not to vape while out in any public places or spaces, in restaurants, while shopping, etcetera.
Just don’t vape where you wouldn’t smoke.
Most of the time adhere to the same warnings and restriction adainst smoking in all public places, it is considerate and best practice to follow the same rules for vaping.
WHILE IN A VEHICLE
If you are in your own vehicle you will tend to vape in you own vehicles confined space, that’s your choice.
We recommend rolling down the windows to avoid impairing your vision while driving.
Be considerate to others and air out the vehicle before transporting children, friends or guests.
Vaping Etiquette: Be an Example and make a Good Impression……
Making a good impression is key to improving the perception of what vapers and vaping is all about and always be mindful of how it compares to smoking.
Answering a few quick questions about vaping makes a great impression and helps out everyone.
The Majority of people do not understand the difference between vaping and smoking If you see that someone is curious be cordial and enlighten them as to what they are witnessing and how vaping works and try to educate them.
THE SOCIAL ASPECTS:
Vaping socially is becoming more common and when it comes to vaping with or near other people a few pointers should be taken into consideration.
ALWAYS ASK FOR PERMISSION
When you go into someone elses car or home, you always need to ask for permission for a number of reasons especially if you are in close proximity to them and are occupying their space.
Always ask the house owner or driver before you start thinking of heating up those coils….
If you are in the company of people that do not smoke take a few moments and ask if it is okay to vape.
If they end up having any questions be polite and try to inform them about just what vaping is all about.
Most times, they will try be gracious and say yes. Even so be considerate and always offer to take it outside.
PETS AND CHILDREN
Vaping around children and pets is considered similar to smoking.
Recommended good practice to avoid doing it at all.
The risk of your pet or child getting into your nicotine e-juices could be fatal.
VAPING AROUND SMOKERS
The majority of us vapers have previously been inconsiderate smokers before.
For the most part, we know exactly what goes into the production of the liquid used in the majority of electronic cigarettes. E-liquid typically consists of four main ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine and flavoring. What isn’t exactly clear is what constituents make up the vapor e-cigs produce.
Most e-liquids are made with propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, USP grade nicotine, GRAS flavoring and, in some cases, distilled water.
A 2012 study published in the scientific journal Indoor Air found e-cigs vapor contains only 6 out of 20 chemicals found in cigarette smoke.
VOC levels in vapor were far below safety limits and up to 40 times lower than those of tobacco smoke.
2nd hand nicotine inhalation is not a concern as only trace amounts were detected from vapor directly exhaled into a 10L glass chamber.
Chemical reactions produced by heat as well as components of the atomizer will often produce unexpected results in electronic cigarette vapor. That’s not to say the vapor is bad, it just simply has more than the four ingredients, on average, that make up the liquid that produces it.
Electronic Cigarette Ingredients
Fortunately, an increasing amount of evidence has shown the vapor produced by e-cigs to be far safer than cigarette smoke. Before we dive into what actually makes up the contents of electronic cigarette vapor, let’s break down each of the main ingredients used in the manufacturing of e-cig liquid.
Propylene glycol is an organic compound generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. It is used as an humectant, solvent, and preservative in food and tobacco products, and is one of the main ingredients in the liquid used in electronic cigarettes.
It is also used in pharmaceutical and personal care products. Propylene glycol is a solvent in many pharmaceuticals that are insoluble in water. While it won’t produce the amount of vapor that vegetable glycerin will, PG provides much of the throat hit in e-cig vapor that many smokers are accustomed to feeling in that of a cigarette.
Like propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin is another base ingredient of e-liquids that produces the vapor of an e-cigarette. Also known as vegetable glycerol, VG is a considerably thicker liquid solution than PG and thus produces more vapor, albeit with a weaker throat hit.
Because of this, it will cause gunk to build up in atomizers, reducing their life span. However, it isn’t as allergenic and doesn’t cause irritation as often as propylene glycol does in sensitive users. Most e-cigarette liquids incorporate a combination of both PG and VG to give vapers a good throat hit as well as vapor production.
Contrary to popular misconception, nicotine is NOT the cancer causing agent found in most tobacco products. It is an addictive stimulant similar to caffeine that is produced from tobacco leaves.
Nicotine can then be used in the manufacturing of various pharmaceutical products like gums, patches and lozenges to help smokers wean off cigarettes. In the case of e-cigs, it is extracted into a liquid form, often combined with different mixes of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin to dilute its strength.
Sometimes distilled water is used in place of propylene glycol to thin out mixes that only use vegetable glycerin as a diluent. This is done to decrease the viscosity of the mix to ensure it wicks better in some atomizers and doesn’t gunk up as quick as 100% vegetable glycerin would.
Malic Acid: Malic acid is an organic compound made from living organisms that is used in fruit flavored e-liquids. It’s what gives green apples and grapes their sour, tarty taste and has been approved as a food additive in the USA, EU, Australia and New Zealand. Malic acid is also added to some cola drinks to lower their pH levels.
Acetylpyrazine: Acetylpyrazine occurs naturally in peanuts, corn and sesame oil. It is another commonly used food flavoring that is often used in tobacco, chocolate and coffee flavored eliquid.
Vanillin: As one might expect, vanillin is used in most vanilla and other desert flavored e-liquids. It is the primary component of vanilla bean extract. Vanillin may be extracted from vanilla pods or artificially made from lignin.
So What’s In the E-Cig Vapor?
The nitrosamine argument has been hotly contested for a while now. The electronic cigarette industry doesn’t claim e-cigs to be 100 percent healthy, as nothing we eat, drink or breathe is perfectly safe. We do know that the quantities of impurities found in e-juice are far lower and thus exponentially safer than those in tobacco cigarettes. But what is actually in the vapor and how safe is it?
A 2012 study published in the scientific journal Indoor Air compared the vapor of electronic cigarettes to that of conventional cigarette smoke. The German researchers analyzed volatile organic compounds after test subjects either smoked or vaped in an 8 cubic meter steel chamber. One 0mg and two 18mg nicotine liquids in apple and tobacco flavor were used during the experiment, along with a regular cigarette.
Out of 20 of the chemicals found in the tobacco, only six of which were present in the electronic cigarette vapor and at much lower concentration levels. Those chemicals included butanone, acetic acid, acetone, isoprene, formaldehyde and acetaldehyde.

As the table above shows, the concentrations of the six VOCs found in the e-cig vapor were at levels far below the occupational safety limit. For comparison, levels found in cigarette smoke were anywhere from 2.5 to 40 times higher.
However, the researchers also examined the vapor contents of a direct exhale into a 10 liter glass chamber to get a clearer picture of what vapers actually inhale. Of the nine chemicals found in the chamber, five are not considered toxic for inhalation at any level. The other four were found to have at least a 90 percent safety margin.

Another not of importance was the amount of nicotine found in the e-cigarette vapor. While it wasn’t detected in the 8 meter steel room, nicotine was found in the much smaller glass chamber but only at very low levels. According to Allvoices, bystanders would have to directly inhale the same amount of vapor that the user inhales for 300 puffs in order to receive as much nicotine as that of a piece of Nicorette gum contains.
In addition to knowing what the majority of manufacturers use to create their e-liquids, we also have scientific evidence of what typical electronic cigarette vapor contains. Some of the chemicals found are indeed toxic, but only at levels far lower than those detected in cigarette smoke. Next time your local politician goes on a misinformed tirade about the lack of knowledge for electronic cigarettes, just refer them to this evidence. The Indoor Air study further backs the fact that not only do we know what’s in e-cigarettes, but vapor they produce is far safer than cigarette smoke and is not a threat to bystanders.
