How To Ghost Inhale a Vape
Many vapers enjoy learning new skills and tricks. Some like the challenge, while others relish the look of all the different tricks available. However, if you’re new to vaping and want to try developing a new skill as a beginner, ghosting is one of the more straightforward tricks to master.
Although it does require some knowledge of the different inhaling techniques, this step-by-step guide will help you master the art. So let’s dive in!
Why Should I Try Ghosting?
Not to be confused with ignoring a person you no longer want to talk to, ghosting is a fun vaping trick. Ghosting is a nice trick for beginners because it’s relatively easy to perform. It won’t demand too much skill but can still impress friends and family, especially because you can make this nifty trick look effortless.
Ghosting is also a great trick because it doesn’t require any other materials to work effectively, so it’s a trick you can take anywhere (that permits vaping). This nifty skill will also work with various vapes and juice flavours.
Ghosting is a must-have skill when thinking about first tricks, especially when other tricks require more elaborate setups or materials. For example, the Vapour Bubble trick needs a soap mixture to execute it, and sometimes the tricks that require extra prep don’t seem as smooth or “natural” in real life.
As with all vaping tricks, ghosting should be an enjoyable trick that only those of legal age should be doing. Avoid doing tricks in front of teenagers, as the appeal of tricks is prompting underage usage of vapes.
How to Ghost Vape in 5 Steps
1. Use the Right Inhaling Technique
The key to executing the ghosting technique is ensuring you know how to inhale the vapour properly. As smoking adults use vaping to quit smoking, you might have come to vaping from cigarettes. If so, you’ll notice that vaping feels different from smoking.
With vaping, the direct-to-lung method means inhaling the vapour straight into your lungs, like a normal breath. Imagine the direct-to-lung process as having a drink with a straw. When you use a straw, the liquid gulps down straight away without circling your mouth first.
When ghosting, you’ll need to take a mouth hit first and hold the vapour in your mouth rather than using the direct lung method. In doing so, you should be able to make a ball shape in your mouth, and when you exhale the vapour, it’ll be easier to pull the cloud back in.
2. Hold the Vapour in Your Mouth
You must take a mouth hit, holding the vapour in your mouth; you don't inhale it into your lungs. Doing this will help achieve a ball-like shape when you breathe it out, making it easier to pull directly back in. You should only keep the cloud in your mouth for two to three seconds to allow it to form into a dense ball.
You shouldn’t have it in your mouth for longer than five seconds.
Once you exhale when vaping, the vapour comes out of your mouth in a cloud. However, for this trick to work, you must watch how you exhale to create a more immense, substantial cloud of vapour.
The key to the exhale is holding your mouth open as you release the cloud. Before exhaling, shape your mouth into a tight O shape. The tighter this shape, the better the cloud will be once you exhale.
After shaping your mouth, exhale very slowly to release the vapour, and use your tongue to help push it out of your mouth. Remember, using your tongue is paramount to helping the fog keep its shape. If you don’t, the vapour will likely emerge as a random white cloud, not the round O shape you want.
4. Use the Right Force
The execution of ghosting depends on the force you use to push the shape out. For example, if you use a lot of force, the cloud will travel further away. If it’s too far away, the next step will prove difficult.
Instead, make sure you use a gentle push with your tongue to keep the cloud closer to your mouth.
Did you know you can also use your tongue to change the cloud’s density? If you softly flick your tongue, you’ll gain a dense, solidly formed cloud. However, if you’d prefer a more vast cloud, a more forceful tongue flick will help you.
For the ghosting trick to be performed well, it’s better to have a dense cloud as it’s easier to capture on the inhale. It also makes the trick look more polished and refined.
5. Inhale Again
Once you’ve exhaled the ball of vapour, you must inhale it to capture it. Much like before, the shape of your lips will determine the trick's effectiveness. It’s vital that instead of the O shape, you purse your lips so that they’re away from each other, outwards.
To change the speed of the recapture, you need to alter the opening of your lips. If you want it to be a swift recapture, open your mouth wide to inhale it faster. However, a smaller space will suffice if you want a slower inhale so your friends can marvel at the control.
Ghost Inhaling Tips for Beginners
- Don’t move too much when inhaling to avoid destroying the shape.
- Don’t try to capture the “ghost” straight away.
- Keep your airflow movements slow and controlled.
- Practice makes perfect, so keep practising until you get the hang of it, particularly the inhalation technique.
- Once improving, reduce your mouth opening when inhaling the “ghost” - many believe it looks more impressive.

Ohms relate to the resistance and power you get from your vaping experience, and lower or higher ohms can drastically impact the vapour, flavour, and temperature. Learn more about ohms and what you can expect from low-ohm and high-ohm vaping below.
Some people choose to vape just to vape, while others prefer to enjoy learning new tricks, such as manipulating the shaping of the vapour as they exhale it. Blowing smoke rings is one of several “tricks” some vapers want to perfect - but it’s not always as easy as it seems.
