One of the great advantages of vaping, is the fact that it allows people to vape in areas where the smoking ban has for years relegated smokers to going outside for their nicotine fix. As such, it means that e-cigarettes attract not only people who are wanting to give up tobacco, but smokers who want a convenient alternative for when they’re out and about. This month, a host of UK venues have set the trend by changing their policies to allow vaping at music and club events, a momentous milestone in the progress of e-cigarettes in culture and society.

A Grey Area

Although e-cigarettes do get around the smoking ban because they don’t emit the toxic smoke that tobacco emits, there has been a grey area regarding where people can and cannot vape since they hit the UK. Whether vaping is permitted has been very much down to the policy of individual venues, meaning that many people have been uncertain about their rights when using e-cigarettes. However the recent news that 15 major live music venues will from now on be permitted vaping at their events comes as a welcome shift in attitudes towards e-cigs.

From now on, vapers will be able to enjoy their e-cigarettes during concerts and events at all 15 of the O2 Academies around the country. As the leading music venue company in the UK, this decision by the Academy Music Group is a momentous one, and should set the tone for other venues to follow suit when setting their policies for the future.

What it Means for Vapers

Going outside to smoke can be a hassle at the best of times, but especially when you’re in a big music venue at a gig that you’ve been waiting for weeks or months to see. The move by the Academy Music Group should encourage more and more people to make the switch to vaping, as it becomes increasingly accepted in public places and allows vapers to bypass the smoking ban.

So the next time you head to the O2 Academy to see a gig, stand up comedy show or a DJ set, don’t miss a moment of your favourite acts. Whether you’re a regular vaper or you want to give it a try before you go to that next big event, e-cigs are a smart move and a much more convenient option when you’re out and about. Enjoy the enhanced experience of being at the event whilst getting your nicotine from an e-cigarette, and become a part of the new culture that makes it safe, legal and even cheaper to puff away in public.

If you haven’t tried vaping before, there’s never been a better time to give it a go. Buy a disposable e-cigarette for your next gig or invest in a starter pack and see why millions of people throughout the UK are choosing to make the move from tobacco. It is a great way to help you to stop smoking traditional cigarettes.
