Is it Rude to Vape in Someone Else’s House?

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

… so naturally, I’ve dealt with this question quite a bit.

A lot of my friend’s vape and whenever I make a new friend who also happens to use E-cigs, I find myself answering it again.

Do I mind if my friends vape in my house? Do I prefer them to do it outside? To me, is it the same as smoking?

These are all good questions, and I did a lot of thinking about them before giving an official answer. One thing that does impact my decision is the fact that I’m a family man. I have two kids, a wife, and a nice home. My wife and I work very hard to keep it nice, and we spend a lot of money keeping it smelling clean and new. We buy air fresheners, we vacuum the carpets with fancy sprinkle-on deodorizer, we light candles on occasion, etc.

In fact, having a clean home is so important to us that we refuse to own indoor pets, specifically for this reason.

But will we let our friend’s vape inside?

This is definitely a query that deserves consideration—and here are my thoughts on it. It’s not a question that can be answered, however, with a simple yes or no. There are a lot of variables to it that go through my mind.

First of all, I’m thankful that I was asked.  The fact that my friends ask first is very nice—and I’m glad that they do. I would definitely feel that I had been treated rudely if they simply walked in and started vaping. Therefore, I would say that you should always, always ask before using your E-cig in someone else’s home.

I DO NOT think that E-cigs are like cigarettes.  I definitely don’t put E-cigs into the same category as tobacco cigarettes. E-cigs don’t smell bad, in my opinion—while on the flipside, cigarettes do. I’ve also found that E-cig vapor doesn’t ‘stick’ to things like cigarette smoke does. I’m not sure if this is very ‘scientific’ in basis, but it is an observation that I’ve made on more than one occasion. When a friend vapes in my home, I don’t smell it later. When a friend smokes in my home, I do—and it definitely bothers me.

I don’t allow smoking in my home.  Smoking is definitely off limits. If someone were to try to smoke in my home, I would ask them to take it outside. Under no circumstances would I allow tobacco to be burned and turned into smoke within the confines of my living space. My health and the health of my family are simply too important to me.

I DO NOT mind if my friend’s vape inside of my home—in fact, I even encourage it.  Vaping isn’t smoking. I’ve done a lot of research on it, and have made it a point to be educated to the best of my ability. I’ve also used vaping products, and continue to do so on occasion. And with what I’ve learned, I have no problem with my friend’s vaping in my home—especially if they’re polite about it and respectful of others. I just don’t see vaping as dangerous. I know that it hasn’t been studied long-term as of yet—but with what I know about it, I’ve made a decision to allow it. Not only that, but I also truly feel that it is a much safer alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. So for that reason, I also encourage my vaping friends and commend them for using E-cigs instead of cigarettes.

If you don’t want to allow vaping in your home, then that’s definitely your choice—and I would never try to say that you were wrong in making such a decision. I would also say that every vaper has a responsibility to find out if vaping is alright with the host before using an E-cig indoors. This is just common courtesy and will go a long way toward giving E-cigs and their users a better name in the community.
