IS VAPING SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE?
One of the reasons you might have, or are thinking of making the switch to Vuse, is because vaping is considered more socially acceptable compared to smoking. Let’s see how true that is.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VAPING AND SMOKING?
Although most eLiquids used for e-cigarettes contain nicotine, they do not contain tobacco, which means that they don't contain tobacco-derived tar*. Vaping devices work by heating an eLiquid, which creates a vapour rather than smoke, and this tobacco-free vapour is thought to be less dangerous as second-hand smoke.
NO STALE CIGARETTE ODOUR
That stale smoke smell that clings to your hair and clothes? That’s a problem exclusive to cigarettes.
Since vaping devices don’t produce ash, you, and those around you don’t have to worry about ash landing on your clothes. Vuse products have no tobacco, no ash, no tar*, and no smoke odour.
Vuse products have 99% fewer toxicants than cigarettes**.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE’S PERCEPTIONS AROUND VAPING?
Vaping has become a very popular route to stopping smoking in recent years , and it tends to be seen as a less harmful alternative.
Since it’s the tobacco in cigarettes that is harmful, not the nicotine, and since vaping doesn’t involve tobacco, second-hand vapour from an e-cigarette isn’t thought to be as dangerous as second-hand smoke . This generally means it’s perceived in a more positive light than smoking.
So are there dangers from second hand vaping? Second hand vape emissions contain compounds that could pose risks to bystanders in high concentrations. However, compared to conventional cigarette second hand smoke, the number and levels of such compounds are far less because vaping does not involve the burning of tobacco or production of emissions between puffs.
OKAY SO, IS VAPNG SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE?
Over time, vaping has become more widely accepted among many people. It’s also easier to vape than smoke in some public places, meaning that people are now more exposed to it than smoking.
Growing misconceptions around e-cigarettes have impacted the public’s view on vaping, but it remains a popular alternative to smoking for many. No tobacco, no ash, no tar and no smoke odour** helps vaping to be seen as more socially acceptable than smoking.

*By 'no tar' we mean no tobacco-derived tar. This product is not risk-free and contains nicotine, which is an addictive substance
** This product is not risk-free and contains nicotine, an addictive substance. Vuse's claims are based on a comparison of smoke from a scientific standard reference cigarette (which contains approximately 9 mg tar) and the emissions from a Vuse ePod. This comparison looked at the average levels of 9 harmful components, as identified by the World Health Organisation (WHO). WHO recommends reducing these 9 components in cigarette smoke to reduce harm.
