Experts reveal the dos and don’ts of vaping

LABEL experts have laid out the dos and don’ts of vaping, including never doing it during meals or on Zoom calls, and ask when in doubt.

Vaping is on the rise, but 59 percent of adults who use vaping as an alternative to smoking admit they are not clear on what is and isn’t good vaping etiquette.

While 61 percent believe vaping in public is a “social minefield.”

But help is at hand – five years since their last guide, the leading authority on etiquette and behavior, Debrett’s have teamed up Vuse update his advice.

The tips were developed after a survey of 2,000 adult nicotine users found that 67 percent think vaping etiquette is “important.”

A spokesman for Debrett’s said: “The number of people vaping in the UK has increased significantly in recent years, but the rules surrounding vaping are not always clear.

“Five years after our first guide to vaping etiquette, we’re excited to partner with Vuse to share our top tips for being a polite and considerate vaper.”

If it’s not clear if the public area you’re in allows vaping, just ask a member of staff, according to the etiquette guide.

And if the answer is no, “take this news with kindness,” because that way, “people will appreciate your good manners and consideration.”

The guide also advises against vaping in “small spaces like elevators or public restrooms” and “hospitals or other healthcare facilities.”

And many of those surveyed agree — 38 percent think you shouldn’t do it in a hospital, while 36 percent think doing it in an elevator is a no-no, and 24 percent feel the same way about vaping in public toilets.

The tips also state that “enveloping others — or those around them — in a vape cloud is not socially acceptable.”

And 45 percent of respondents seem to agree – when vaping in public, they think users should lower the wattage setting on their device to minimize vapor clouds where possible.

When it comes to food, there is no ambiguity: “Vapers should not vape while consuming food or drink.”


  • If in doubt, just ask
  • Respect personal space
  • Know your listeners
  • Rely on your hosts
  • Remember, food and vaping don’t mix
  • Vaping at work looks bland
  • Respect the views of others

More than a third of respondents seem to have a similar opinion – arguing in restaurants should be off-limits for vapers.

Likewise, 31 percent think it’s best to avoid vaping where food is being prepared.

Vaping in the workplace is not recommended — “unless your employer has given permission,” while during meetings, Zoom calls, and job interviews, it can indicate someone is “not focused.”

With this in mind, 33 percent of those surveyed via OnePoll agree that one should not vape in an office workplace.

A spokesman for Vuse, who commissioned the research, said: “We hope this newly updated guide will put vape users out of some awkward situations.

“As the study shows, there is a lot of confusion about what is good social etiquette when it comes to vaping.

“But of course it’s important to respect the people around you and be as accommodating as possible.”
