Gerry Stimson Knowledge-Action-Change Congratulations on the formation of NNA Australia. The voice of consumers and the scientific evidence will help change Australia's harmful legislation on nicotine. Lots of work to do - but you will get there!
Sharon Harvey I am 50 years old and have been vaping since August 2014, have not touched a cigarette since the day I started vaping. It helped me give away a 35 year habit, I no longer suffer from asthma and feel the healthiest and most active I have felt in 20 years. I started vaping with 24mg nicotine and am now on 9mg nicotine. I am from Victoria.

Ewen McPherson I had been a smoker for 25+ years. I had tried everything to stop smoking. I actually gave up once using champix (not without the crazy side effects. Headaches, horrible nightmares & depression) but started again due to stresses. I smoked 1 - 1 1/2 packs a day then moved to rollies. I went looking for an alternative. After a long search I found vaping. I investigated vaping & made an informed decision that it looked like it was a lot safer than smoking. Once I started (with the assistance of a group of like minded vapers), the transition from cigarettes to vaping was really easy. I have not had a cigarette since I started vaping. Within weeks my lung capacity has increased, my skin looks 100% better, I have not craved food like I did when I quit last time, I have lowered my salt consumption due to being able to taste my food & in fact I have basically stopped eating so much chocolate & sweets as I get my fix while I vape. At the moment I have to import my nicotine from overseas due to draconian Aust
Christine May Well done guys :) I believe, we can overcome.
Jenny Stone I work with homeless and disadvantaged people and I'm passionate about tobacco harm reduction. I smoked for 30 years before I tried vaping out of curiosity. No one was more surprised than I was when I completely lost interest in smoking because I preferred the experience of vaping.

Alyson Impson vape user Its a wonderful invention vaping it has finally rid me of the 43 year (pk a day) hold on cigarettes, and it was so easy and enjoyable, not like the constant failure and the feeling of being defeated with other NRT methods... The NNA is the voice for all vapers and I thank you and wish you success in all endeavors. Vaping may not be for everyone but they should at least get a chance to try.
David Watson
Robert Mrowczynski I support NNA Australia because I quit (40years of) smoking cigarettes by switching to cleaner, 98% less toxic VAPING. And because humans DESERVE to have a choice. No Big business (neither Pharma nor Tobacco) can deprive us of this right.

Shane Kerrigan iVape Australia It's great to see the NNAliance gathering speen and support. iVape is a QLD based vendor trading for 3yrs and the only vendor to step up and attempt to veto the governments amendments to the tobacco act earlier this year that saw electronic cigarettes/personal vaporises classed as a tobacco related product and ultimately regulated by the same rules that regulate tobacco. These changes to our industry here in QLD have no doubt restricted the availability of our life saving products from smokers who have tried all the NRT products currently available and are still searching for a realistic alternative to smoking. We fully support this movement and the power it has to ghange people's minds about nicotine and ultimately save lives. 20,000 Australians die each yearr from smoking related illness. ITS TIME FOR CHANGE! "I Don't Smoke.....iVape!"

Colin Macdonald As a husband and father of three, I want to see people free to choose a lower risk alternative. Where the impacts of the alternative are not well described, I should be able to access services that can monitor and assess the outcomes of my decision and allow my personal medical history to guide future health policy decisions. As an adult, I make millions of decisions every day that could have potentially damaging ramifications for myself, my colleagues and my family. I should not be unreasonably penalised for lifestyle choices that have little to no measurable negative impact on those around me.

Brett Heron I was a smoker for many years. I have not had a cigarette in 18 months. I am now a vaping enthusiast. I am tobacco and nicotine free and support this movement. I as a child, watched my grandfather suffer the effects of emphysema which led to his death. I feel healthier, fitter, I taste and can smell my food and have since gained weight since switching over to Vaping. I have spoken to my General Practitioner about this and he supports my beliefs and doing just this i.e: Vaping. If Australia wants to ban Vaping from Australian shores, surely they need to take independent testing from scientifically based and medically based facts proven, shown and showing this to be worse then smoking a cigarette. What is more important, financial gain from cigarette smoking or peoples lives.

I smoked for 23 years, and tried everything the government had to offer. 2 failed attempts at Zyban, 5 failed attempts at Champix, numerous failures with nicotine gum and patches. But the first vape I ever had cured me permanently of the need to smoke cigarettes. The Govt just want to keep it's excise income flowing by forcing us back to cigs. But hey Govt! Maybe you won't need so much excise if people stop dying slowly of smoking related illnesses!

David Owen Instant 100% convert 2 years ago. Blocking habitual smokers from this lifesaving alternative on the grounds of spurious or willfully ignorant argument is actually a serious social offence and should be legally culpable.

Stephen Kessell retired assoc prof (Curtin Univ) Five years ago, at age 61, my GP and two specialists (for Crohn's and Spondylitis) all told me: "quit smoking if you want to ever meet your grandchildren". Had smoked for 48 years, failed using patches, gum, and 12-month private Champix scripts. Took only 4 days to switch to e-cigs (initially cigalikes, then moved on to liquid) A lifesaver and SO much more enjoyable!

David Worsencroft I support vaping, I'm so glad I found this excellent way of stopping my 48 year tobacco addiction. Without the ability to vape, I would still be smoking tobacco. Others with tobacco addiction need to be introduced to vaping, it makes quiting tobacco very easy. I will never go back to smoking tobacco, thanks to vaping I'm no longer a smoker.

Grant Woollard N/A Hard to believe that in West Aust the sale of hardware and e-juice is banned. Harder to believe is the push behind the ban was the W.A Health Dept, who appealed a decision in a lower court that found an accused had no case to answer. I left school and commenced work at an early age. So I had been pretty much a full time smoker from the age of fourteen. For forty three years the only times I had not had a cigarette for any length of time was on two occassions when I was confined to a hospital bed, both times of which my main objective was to be able to get in a wheelchair so I could go to the garden for a smoke. I had tried numerous times to give up, using gum, patches, Champix, yet none of them even slowed me up, let alone stopped me. On the 25 February this year I decided to start vaping. Now I have been seven months smoke free, a fact my family and myself find extremely hard to believe. To coin a phrase used in by in the TV series House of Cards - "Vaping - addiction without the consequences" Best rega

It does work. If it were more available here so many ore people could be helped. Call me jaded, but I feel the only reason the governement tries to ban it is because they havent figured out a way to control and tax it. So their cries of "health issues" sound hollow to me.

Yoshi Levitch Harm Reduction Victoria I'm a volunteer worker in the alcohol and other drugs sector. I work to in harm reduction and part of that is providing credible information so that people we meet can make informed decisions and potentially reduce the harms they might encounter or not be aware of. From the scientific information I've read and personal experiences I believe that vaping (electronic cigarettes including those containing nicotine) can save people from disease, death and misery caused from tobacco cigarettes. I firmly believe we should have the right to sell and therefore make widely available to the public, the latest and safest vaping products including nicotine containing electronic cigarettes and liquids in retail shops in Australia considering the weight of credible scientific information pointing at this being a much healthier and usable alternative to tobacco cigarettes. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK!!
Jepu Deibi Individual
Robert Hogg Yes i am a vaper. If the Australian Government want's to seriously cut down on the health effects from smoking they would ban smoking all together. The fact that vaping is getting people off the smokes can only be a good thing. I had been a smoker for 20 years, in the past 18 months i have only had 3 or four smokes and that has been due to breaking my e cig at work. I have noticed since vaping and being off the smokes that my lung capacity has improved around 40%. I work on an orchard and used to not be able to walk to the top of the hills without stopping to catch my breath. Now i can walk up the hills in one go, i still have to catch my breath at the top but it is a massive improvement on where i was when i was a smoker.
Jamie Houston
Pete Petrass I myself took up vaping a couple of months ago with the aim of giving up cigarettes I use e-juice with nicotine that I have to get from America because for some reason it is illegal here. I am just starting off slow replacing cigarettes with vaping and am already feeling the difference. I have to laugh at the excuses put forward by our legislators, particularly regarding children. Personally I think they should be more concerned with the drug problems we have. Kids these days want to do drugs and get high, not smoke e-cigarettes. Don't get me started on heroin users (a 100% illegal activity). The same legislators choose to give these people FREE syringes and FREE methadone which simply replaces one serious addiction with another. If smoking is still a LEGAL activity then why is vaping ILLEGAL???

peers Gifford I was smoking over 80, yes 80 cigarettes a day, till one day I was in hospital ,a hospital which had a smoking area........ There was a guy in the corner sucking on a tube like thing, which reminded me of a shisha ,I like everybody there asked him what he was doing ? he answered vaping then started to explain to me that he had a heart attack due to smoking and stress from his work ,and was actually told by his heart surgeon to try this as it was better for him, he still wasn't in good health ,grey coloured and he showed me the scar on his leg where a vein had to be removed to fix his ticker but he was getting better, so I had a look into this new machine and was suprised that what he was telling me was true I ordered one within the next few days after many late night conversations with him,since that day nearly 3 years ago I have had proberbly 20 cigarettes, not bad eh?

Joshua Thiessen NNA, I have been looking for an organisation which brings to attention the liquid nicotine laws in Australia. I am studying communications and graphic design, and I think it is absolutely essential for the forward progression of a new, more tolerable Australia that ejuice should be sold and manufactured within Australia. After visiting Europe and their vape shops (I was vaping before visiting) I was saddened that I would never be able to work in such a shop and my knowledge will always be ignored here. The freedom that vaping provides, especially with the new laws in NSW is definitely worth aspiring to, and the culture of my current location in Melbourne could also be enlightened and freed by the increased access to ejuice or eliquids. The NNA has my full support in any endeavour and policy amendments, it's time Australia moved away from fear tactics and prohibition to prove that we are no longer a prison colony!

Grant van Dongen Vaping is a game changer is the way in which we combat cigarette smoking morality rates.
Anne Ransley As a person who had unsuccessfully tried every available method to stop smoking, I have gone from 2 pouches of rolling tobacco plus 2-3 packets of tailor-made cigarettes per week to vaping only, and have not been even tempted to have a 'real' cigarette after the first couple of days. It disgusts me that I have to import my own personal supply of fluid containing nicotine rather than being able to buy it in Australia.

Not only has it turned around my health but also that of my friends, as the people i have introduced to vaping are on their quitting journey. The only barrier to more people using vaping as a harm minimisation and quit strategy is the failure of legislators to consider making this option more easily available and for it be part of a best practice quit strategy of health professionals

Andrew Hetherington Started vaping 3 weeks ago after 30 years of tobacco. Have no desire to go back to cigarettes and I enjoy vaping so much more. I want nicotine in Australian eLiquid!! Vaping saves lives and the Australian Government needs to legislate to make nicotine in our eLiquid legal so that we don't have to import it.

Stephen Cordeschi Vaping has SAVED MY LIFE If there were no other alternative to the sensation of still inhaling smoke - or in my case virtually harmless Vapour, I would be dead or close to death right now. Vaping is a healthier alternative to Smoking cigatettes and to classify vaping under tobacco laws is absolutely absurd, Vaping is Life.
william Webber vaper Need to fight for my right to a healthier lifestyle.
Anna Posmyk n/a At last !!! why is Australia always the last to accept anything new ? in this case something that can potentially SAVE lives. Why in this DEMOCRATIC country we don't have a choice in anything ? Heavy smoker for 30+ I have been vaping since sept. 2014 and feeling much better than on tobacco cigs. Planning to slowly go off ecigs as well by reducing nicotine level. Champix is not an option.

Damian Vick 15 years a smoker and it all changed in a single day. The day I took up vaping was the day day I smoked. That was 18 months ago. I passionately feel that the archaic legal barriers that restrict access to nicotine for use in vaping devices, must be re-examined for the sake of the thousands of people who wish to escape the burden of cigarettes

Megan Parker None - Personal interest I began vaping on the 20th September 2014. I have not had a cigarette since that day. I am 41 years old and I had been smoking since I was 13 years old. I import nic and I have chosen a small and dedicated shop in the Adelaide Hills as my preferred ejuice supplier. I find that they are very ethical and they keep abreast of the limited research available. I fully support your vision and I appreciate what you are doing. Thank you.

Sarah Jane Nilsen I have lived outside Australia for the last seven years and now have to return to Western Australia. I gave up smoking three years ago thanks to the availability of e-cigs in Europe. I would never have been able to do this without them and I was an extremely heavy smoker. The lack of e-cigs in Australia concerns me greatly as I still use them. I believe statistically 80% of all smokers go back to smoking - therefore the focus should be on harm minimization to smokers. I would love to become involved in your organization to help remove the hypocrisy that exists and see e-cigs become freely available in Australia. I am very passionate about this topic.

harley jinnette I've been vaping for a little over two years. Over that time I've been able to lower my nicotine levels to 0 yet I still vape as I really enjoy the flavours. I've personally helped over 50 people quit with valine so there's no doubt in my mind of its effectiveness as a NRT.

Jason Richards I was a 30+ a day smoker for 16 years and i had tried quitting many times and i can tell you from experience NRT like Patches, Ziaban, Champix and Gum does not work! They have a 95% fail rate. E-Cigarettes have saved me from the Cancer sticks and they are the only thing that has worked. We need to be able to Purchase Nicotine in Australia its a joke that we need to order it from overseas. Wake up its saving Lives.
Barbara Taylor Private citizen One of my family members has Schizophrenia. Most schizophrenic people develop an addiction. Hers is to cigarettes. I am fairly sure that they will kill her before her mental illness does. She won't change over because it is illegal to buy or sell ecigarettes where we live. She is not competent enough to order ecigarettes from overseas. I hope raw tobacco becomes illegal soon.
David Henry An ex tobacco smoker about to move to qld...
Chris Robinson I am a vaper and ex-smoker for three years. I feel that my individual rights are being violated by the law and regulations that restrict my access to vaping and nicotine. After my father died of smoking related disease, I spent 28 years trying to give up cigarettes. Vaping has probably saved my life, but it's too late for other family members, one of whom has just been given 9 months to live with lung cancer. If vaping had been available to him sooner, he might not be in this situation now.
Matt Walker Hi guys well done on this. We need fair and open mindedness system and unfortunately we dont have that here in aus. Particularly here in wa.

Adrian Johnston I've quit smoking for the 3rd time. this time with vaping. From the moment i picked up my device i haven't wanted a single one, the mere smell of one is horrible. I can breathe better, sleep better and generally feel healthier. We need to get proper recognition for this as a viable and safe option for smokers who want to quit for good.

I am self sufficient in juice and coil making and have and do assist a number of friends in stopping smoking through vaping. I hope one day to be able to walk down the street to my local vape bar for a drink a chat and to try a new flavour or two. Better make sure I act now so I don't regret later.

John Hooper I'm 47 years old and had been smoking tobacco cigarettes since I was 18 years old (28 years). I had tried many methods over the years to stop smoking tobacco cigarettes which all failed. Since I started vaping in April 2015 I have not had a single Tobacco cigarette. I started vaping at 18 mg/ml of nicotine in my e liquid, I am now down to 6 mg/ml and plan to reduce down to 3 mg/ml next batch of e liquids. I live in Victoria.

Wing kit Wong Vaping has been the only way i have been able to successfully quit cigarettes. regulating it to extinction will cause more people to go back to cigarettes and prevent people looking into as an alternative not being able to. very bad idea and it will cost lives as well as money in healthcare funding.

Michael O'Donnell My vape story is I smoked for 25 years. Almost a year ago a friend gave me an Innoken itaste clk. I have not touched a cigarette since. It's that simple (for me).
Sacha Tabbah Tried literally everything from patches to lozenges to inhalers and champix (twice). All have their faults from itching and not sticking to sore throats and severe stomach pains. They are all so aweful that they make you want a smoke. After 25 years on the stinkies, one morning I was a smoker and by the afternoon I am a vaper, and have not touched a stinky since.
Karina Steenari I started smoking at 13. After numerous failed quitting attempts throughout my mid and late 20's I can confidently say that vaping saved my life. Since my first vape 5 months ago I have not had a puff of a cigarette since. My quality of life is so much better - I no longer have depressive thoughts, I exercise 5 times a week and I am more motivated and happier in general. I'm a better mother and human being now that I have kicked the smokes. The fact that I'm breaking the every time I vape, but can legally by cigarettes is an atrocity. Wake up QLD health authorities - your ignorance regarding vaping is potentially killing thousands of Queenslanders!!!
Shaun Rawling
Adrian Grace Citizen Early stages of vaping now, but given I have only had 2 cigarettes in the last week (and that last one tasted terrible!) compared to the 30 a day I had been doing (a smoker for 30 years) I'm thinking that this is fantastic after numerous attempts with common NRT products (never did take up the Doctors offer for Champix - way too many scarey stories). The wife was also a seasoned smoker, and she hasn't had a single cigarette in the last 2 weeks. Time for the pollies to realise all the good and start backing vaping as a positive.

Terry Harold
Greg Miller Firstly thank you to you all for your great work. My vaping story is quite different from most that I've heard. I have been a daily marijuana user for 24 years. Tobacco became more and more of my mix, and I was consuming 5 cigarettes worth of tobacco a day through a bong.(smoking 30-50 cones a day). I would also smoke cigarettes at work(up to 6 a day) I have since converted to a dry herb vaporizer, removed the tobacco element and now consume 2-3 cones a day. (only at night now) I also use a personal vaporizer to "fill the gap" and give me a nicotine hit during the day and at work. I've gone from being mildly asthmatic plus hacking up brown gunk all day, to having a clear chest and completely ceased all asthma medications. The difference is undeniable. I am angered by the governments' knee-jerk response to vaping. It's almost as if a bunch of tobacco/ pharmaceutical lobbyists got in their ear and advised them what to do. Can this be checked through freedom of information laws? Because I fear this is wh

Thomas Russell Sales Assist Australia As a member of society, its important for people and science to come together to do the correct, unbiased research, on e-cig. If there is a chance that E-cigs can provide a safer alternative to analogue cigarettes then it is our duty to investigate that because, although the future damage to ecig's are "unknown" the damage to smoking analogue cigarettes is and the projection is far worse.
Nancy Sutthoff AVCA Hello neighbours (waves across the Tasman). Thank you for your support and guidance as we get our own vapers advocacy running here in New Zealand.
Matthew Murray vaping helped me quit smoking, have not touched a cigarette for well over a year now and i'd never go back, i can run, smell, breathe and taste food properly now. its like banning health food and keeping the fast food industry alive.. makes no sense..
Sarah pearce The problem is people are uneducated and because of that they chose to deem these as UN safe. You should be going after cigarettes! To say they come under tobacco, I'm sorry but no there's not one bit of tobacco in these items or more likely nicotine! The other ingredients contain products that are used daily for human consumption! How about you focus more on important things in life! Vaping is far better then smoking cigarettes!

Jason Santa Vaping has helped people who have been addicted to cigarettes, switch to vaping, which had lowered health dangers/signs and kept them on the right track. Many have found that they feel a lot healthier and can breathe better. My cousin who has been addicted to smoking has tried to quit many times but, could not. I recommend vaping and it had become a BIG solution to his addiction that had lead the life he lives now. He use to be a big smoker so, he would always be buying pack after pack when vaping was a better solution that doesn't require us spending cash, thrown at useless toxic chemicals. I want to support vaping as it can help a lot of people and even change lives. Smoking Cigarettes is WORSE than vaping and that is a fact.
