Personal vaporizer are battery-powered devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution (‘e-liquid’) into an aerosol inhaled and exhaled as a visible mist.
Vaping is mainly used as a short-term aid to quitting smoking or as a long-term substitute for smoking by smokers who are otherwise unable or unwilling to quit smoking or nicotine on their own or with the available treatments. Switching to a less harmful alternative such as vaping (known as ‘tobacco harm reduction) reduces the health risks without quitting.
Vaping is not harmless, but there is overwhelming scientific agreement that it is far less harmful than smoking. The UK Royal College of Physicians and Public Health England concluded that the long-term health risk from vaping is unlikely to exceed 5% of the harm from smoking tobacco. This is not surprising as most of the damage from smoking is due to the tar, carbon monoxide and 7,000 other toxic chemicals produced by burning tobacco leaves. Vaporisers do not contain tobacco, and there is no combustion or smoke.

Some potentially harmful toxins are present in vapour but at much lower levels than in cigarette smoke and, in most cases, below the level known to cause harm. Furthermore, there is a substantial reduction in toxins measured in the blood and saliva of vapers compared to tobacco smokers. A recent study calculated that the overall cancer risk from long-term vaping is <1% of the threat from smoking.

After switching from smoking to vaping, significant health improvements include improved asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, blood pressure, cardiovascular health, lung function, and reduced pneumonia risk. The small health risks from vaping should be compared to the substantial risks from smoking. Up to two out of three long-term smokers will die prematurely from a smoking-related disease.
Like all new products, the long-term health effects of vaping have yet to be established. Studies of up to four years and ten years of real-world experience have not identified any significant health risks. However, based on current knowledge of vapour ingredients, the bet is sure to be much less than smoking.
Although nicotine is the primary addictive chemical in tobacco, it has relatively minor health effects, except in pregnancy and possibly in adolescence.
There is growing scientific evidence that vaping helps some people quit smoking. Personal vaporisers are now the most popular quitting aid in many countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States.

Modern devices can provide the same nicotine levels as tobacco cigarettes and can relieve urges to smoke and nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and loss of concentration. They also replicate the psychological and hand-to-mouth aspects of smoking. Millions of smokers have reported quitting using a personal vaporiser in the UK, US and EU - over 6 million people reported quitting smoking with a vaporiser in the EU alone in 2014. Older devices are at least as effective as the nicotine patch. Newer devices deliver nicotine more effectively and have higher quit rates.

Vaping is most effective when used daily and after finding a suitable device and e-liquid combination that works best for the user.
Non Nicotine products are 100% legal for over 18’s in Australia. It is legal to vape in Australia to quit smoking if you have a registered Australian medical practitioner prescription. Nicotine can be imported from overseas under the TGA Personal Importation Scheme or accessed legally from an accredited online Australian compounding pharmacy. State laws regulate issues such as the sale of nicotine, use in public places, age limits purchase sale, display and promotion of vaporisers. Regulations are different between jurisdictions and may change from time to time.
Contrary to alarming claims, regular vaping by young people is rare and is almost exclusively confined to current or past smokers. Most teen vaping is experimental and short-lived. Teenagers are curious; vaping is seen as fun, and some kids try it. However, the great majority do not use nicotine, and there is little or no evidence of progression to smoking.

Overseas experience suggests that vaping is replacing—rather than encouraging—smoking tobacco cigarettes among young people. Smoking rates in young people continue to fall in countries where vaporisers are readily available, in some cases such as the US, more rapidly than ever before.
There is no evidence that the increased visibility of vaping makes smoking appear more socially acceptable (renormalising smoking). In fact, in countries where vaporisers are freely available, smoking rates continue to fall, in some countries such as the US, faster than ever. On the other hand, in Australia, where vaping is restricted, smoking rates have stagnated over the three years 2013-2016, for the first time.
