Vape Stereotypes: The 7 Kind of Vapers We All Know
Vaping has been soaring in popularity, with more stores popping up around the world to meet the growing demand.
Now, there are more than 40 million people vaping worldwide.
Among those people, there are a few distinct vape stereotypes. In this post, we'll give you the main ones, ranging from casual vapers to hardcore ones and everything in between. You might even find yourself on our list!
Types of Vapers You'll Meet
You're bound to find a few of these stereotypical vapers in your circle. These include:
1. The Vape Magician
If you haven't met a vape magician, you will have at least seen them on the Internet.
These people are constantly performing impressive tricks, blowing clouds, rings, and waterfalls whenever they get a chance.
Vape magicians congregate at "cloud chasing" events where tricksters compete to see who can blow the biggest clouds and perform the most difficult tricks. To prepare, they spend hours studying vape videos on Youtube and practicing their tricks.
The ones who win these competitions usually have great sponsorships, which see them decked out with all the latest vape pens, mods, and juices. You can trust them to keep you up to date on the newest and best gear on the market.
2. The Stealth Vaper
The stealth vaper is the complete opposite of the magician.
Instead of showing off their skills, they like to vape discreetly, keeping their habit to themselves when they can.
This doesn't mean they don't have any tricks up their sleeves. Quite the opposite, in fact.
They're masters of vaping anywhere and everywhere without other people noticing. Look closely, and you might catch them blowing vape into their shirt or bag or under their desk from time to time. If you need some tips on how to vape without getting caught, ask a stealth vaper.
To fit their stealthy habit, they usually buy the smallest vape pens on the market. They're also attracted to devices that don't resemble the generic vape pen design. Products like JUUL, which looks like a USB pen, are ideal for the stealth vaper.
3. The Vape Snob
The vape snob has a superiority complex.
They refuse to use anything other than top-of-the-range devices, and look down on those who use ones they deem to be inferior. They despise anyone who uses cheap mods, especially if they're made in China.
These vapers usually feel right at home in hardcore vape communities, but in other spaces, they can be a drag to be around. Casual and experimental vapers aren't likely to take kindly to their judgemental nature.
4. The Juice Connoisseur
The juice connoisseur is in it for the flavors.
They're constantly seeking out new and exciting e-liquids to find out which ones taste the best. If you're thinking of buying a new flavor but aren't sure, they're the ones to ask. They've tried everything!
This includes the obscure e-juice flavors like nacho cheese, pumpkin pie, bacon, and birthday cake.
They're not particularly interested in cloud chasing or swanky new devices. All they care about it the taste sensation that comes with vaping.
They usually have a cabinet full of different e-liquids, with one for every occasion. If you ask nicely, they might even let you try them out yourself.
5. The Casual Vaper
The casual vaper doesn't fall into any of the extreme categories on this list.
They vape now and then, but they're not super into it. For this reason, they usually don't invest in any high-quality mods. You're more likely to find them with an inexpensive, low-range vape pen in their hands.
You might even find that they ask to have a drag from your vape pen because they don't have theirs.
These people usually don't have a history of smoking, so they can easily quit vaping. They'll vape at parties and other social occasions, or just now and then when they get the urge. However, they aren't committed to it in the same way lots of other vapers are.
6. The Quitter Vaper
Since vaping has been hailed as a safer and healthier alternative to smoking, it's produced legions of quitter vapers.
These people got into vaping solely as a way to get off cigarettes. They have no concern for tricks, mods, or any of the technical stuff. All they're interested in is reducing their nicotine intake.
This makes them a little clueless when they start out. They seek the help of other types of vapers to educate them on which products to buy and how to use them.
As their goal is to stop being dependent on cigarettes, they aren't into vaping for the long-haul. However, that doesn't mean that they don't keep vaping long-term.
As time goes on, they either quit completely, transitioning from vaping to becoming nicotine-free, or turn into one of the other vape stereotypes.
7. The Hardcore Vaper
You can see a hardcore vaper coming at you from a mile away, usually followed by a cloud of vape smoke.
They vape everywhere they go, and they aren't afraid to tell everyone about it. Be prepared for them to talk your ear off about all things vape-related.
This isn't limited to just their friends. They'll even do it to people passing by. If they see people smoking, they'll often start talking to them about how vaping is a much better option, attempting to convince them to try it.
Unsurprisingly, they carry their vape pen with them at all times. Some of them even go as far as wearing it on a chain!
Tips for Newbie Vapers
All of these types of vapers have one thing in common, and that's the fact that they started out as newbies.
When you first enter the world of vaping, everything is new and exciting. It can also be a little confusing.
You have to spend time figuring out which products to buy, where to get them from and how to use them. Then, you can start experimenting and find out what you like.
