What can I do?
Federal and state measures to tackle vaping and tobacco smoking must be implemented as soon as practically possible to address this growing issue. Add your voice, calling for the NSW Government to act quickly and decisively for the health of our children and young people by writing a letter to your local MP. Every day we delay action, is another day more children, young people and non-smokers become addicted to vapes. NSW legislation and enforcement efforts must be aligned with the national reforms announced to ensure children and young people in NSW are protected from illegal vapes.
Do you have a story on how e-cigarettes or vaping has affected you, your teenager or even impacted your community?
Whether you are a young person, parent or teacher there is a fantastic online vaping facts hub of information from the NSW Government with everything from factsheets to school newsletter content.
E-cigarettes containing nicotine cannot be sold in Australia unless the user has a prescription from a medical doctor. If you know someone is selling e-cigarettes that contain nicotine in your community, you can report it to NSW Health online or call the Tobacco information line on 1800 357 412.
