Chris was a smoker for thirty-five years.  After many dozens of conventional quit attempts spanning decades he was amazed to find that he gave up instantly with vaping: what was only meant to be a proof of concept suddenly became a life changing innovation.  Chris believes that vapour technology and other tobacco harm reduction stragies such as smokeless tobacco should be freely availble to all Australia smokers.

"Fifteen thousand smokers die of related diseases every year in Australia.  It's inconceivable to me that the technology exists that can save almost all of them, but politicians, public health, and abstinence only prohibitionists can not see past their idealogy long enough to embrace tobacco harm reduction and let them save themselves.  I call on all vapers and those interested in public health to set aside their differences and come together to create the greatest public health revolution of this century."

Chris is passionate about the consumer led revolution that is tobacco harm reduction because of the potential to save Australian lives while costing tax payers nothing whatsovever.  He has agreed to serve on the board of NNA Australia, but believes it is up to all Australians to do what is right, which is to embrace tobacco harm reduction.
