There’s no doubt that vaping is as popular as it ever was, particularly with new technology being developed to constantly improve on the core vaping experience. Plus, with so many people embracing vaping over such a long period of time, there are a lot of shared views surrounding vaping. Although it might not seem like it on the surface, the vaping community is very much a thing that has its own rules and regulations, and it’s also certainly something that newbies wouldn’t know about. So, how can you possibly become familiar with the ins and outs of vaping culture if you don’t know about them? We’ll give you a head start – in this article, we take a look at what vaping culture is all boat.
You and the vaporising community
If you’ve started becoming interested in buying an e-cigarette in Australia, you might have thought about where and how you can vape. For newbies, it should be obvious that vaping in the privacy of your own home is fine – there’s (hopefully) no one there to get annoyed by your vaping, unless you’re doing it inside when you’re not supposed to. As soon as you start practicing vaping outside of the house, however, there are a few key things to consider, particularly considering the unfortunate stigma that has developed around vaping in some areas. In outside areas, vaping should be completely fine as long as you’re not too close to other people. If you are in a crowded area, such as a busy street in the city, it’s good to make sure that you aren’t blowing massive clouds into the faces of people walking by – even if some people have told you it’s ok, that won’t mean that everyone is ok with it. There are a few other public places that you should be considerate about smoking in, particularly if you’re inside. Although the vapour you’re smoking is much less noxious than tobacco smoke, adhering to basic laws related to cigarette smoking (such as smoking in certain areas of bars and restaurants) will guarantee that no one will get in your face about etiquette.
Other factors that you should be keeping in mind
When it comes to public transportation, many laws have been introduced to restrict the ability for people to vape. Again, in these situations its best to adhere to laws related to smoking. Although you might think that your pets will be alright around vaping due to the vapour being less noxious than cigarette smoke, studies have actually shown that the propylene glycol material that is released in the vapour when exhaled has been found to cause some health issues in cats, so make sure that you don’t vape in front of your feline friend. This is also the case in dogs as well, although instances are much rarer than in cats. Vaping shouldn’t occur around children, ether, as it the sweet scent may very easily have the power to interest them in trying it themselves, which is the last thing you might want.
Understanding when and how to vape
Although it can be a bit confusing sometimes learning when and how you are allowed to vape, it’s probably for the best that acknowledge and follow any rules you spot related to smoking, despite it being a very different thing. If you think that there’s a possibility that you might bother someone with your vapour, it’s best not to do it, but if you’ve politely asked around and everyone is ok with it, go crazy! At the end of the day, being conscientious is the key to vaping freedom.
