The consumer element of tobacco harm reduction advocacy in Australia
Endorsing, Promoting, Educating, Supporting
Focus - Endeavours
We advocate for responsible, pragmatic regulatory change, that would contribute greatly to public health in Australia. We wish to see a greater understanding and acceptance of less harmful nicotine delivery products, including their safety and efficacy, and hence, see a drastic reduction in overall smoking prevalence.
October 2, 2019 Update: We will be closed during the month of October to attend my mother’s memorial in the USA. In addition we will be updating the site to cater for advocacy related news and events.

Society benefits by embracing tobacco harm reduction
What's more effective than NRT's?
Contrary to what we are told, numerous studies shown that traditional nicotine replacement therapies such as patches or sprays, offer little to no relief. Smokers are 70% more likely to quit using e-cigarettes, Heat not Burn products or smokeless tobacco such as Snus.
Nicotine harm is equal to caffeine
Numerous representatives from the science and medical communities have stipulated that the level of harm from nicotine equates to that of caffeine. It should also be pointed out that nicotine is not carcinogenic.
Why vaping is 95% less harmful
Combustion, or the burning of tobacco, is what causes the vast majority of harm when smoking. In contrast, vaping produces an aerosol so there is no combustion. Furthermore, research has shown there is no lung damage from vaping.
Physical & Psychological benefits
Quitting smoking is the best thing one can do for the mind and body. Smokers who switch to harm reduction methods, attest to the fact that they feel far more positive about life, and often engage in more outdoor activities.
