Vaping is a topic that's been debated at length, and it can be confusing to figure out if it's legal or not. In this article, we'll go over all the questions you might have about vaping in Australia and how to get started with your own e-cigarette. We'll also talk about how vaping differs from smoking—and why doctors and researchers think it's safer for you!
Is it legal?
Vaping is legal in Australia. The law allows you to vape anywhere that smoking tobacco is permitted, except in all indoor public places, such as schools and hospitals.
How does vaping differ from smoking?
Vaping is not smoking. When you vape, you're not creating smoke. There's no tar or carbon monoxide in the vapour, either. You're also not inhaling any tobacco.
So what exactly is vaping? Simply put, it's heating up and inhaling a mixture of flavourings and liquid with nicotine or without it—vape juice—to get an enjoyable hit. But there's more to it than that! Vaping can be a relaxing hobby for many people around the world; some enjoy using their favourite flavours as a way to unwind after a long day at work or school/uni/whatever else they might be doing during that time of day/night! Others prefer to pair their vape setup with other activities such as gaming or reading comics online but only when there are no obligations looming over them for several hours straight after which point they'll return home feeling rejuvenated enough again through breathing so deeply into their lungs--that would mean coughing up phlegm maybe? Well maybe not depending on how often do
Is vaping safe?
The answer is yes, vaping is safe. The primary reason people vape is to stop smoking cigarettes, and vaping e-liquids can help you do that. Studies show that cigarette smoke contains many ingredients that are harmful to your health when inhaled as well as many chemicals like formaldehyde and acetone which aren’t found in e-liquids. Vaping doesn’t have these risks because it doesn’t contain any tobacco products or combustion; instead, it heats up the e-liquid to create vapour similar to steam produced when boiling water on the stovetop.
The second reason people use vapes is because they want an alternative way of consuming nicotine without being exposed to harmful side effects from smoking such as carbon monoxide or tar from tobacco cigarettes; this makes them healthier than conventional cigarettes too!
Can I import my own e-liquid?
Yes, you can import e-liquid for personal use. However, you must be over 18 years old and only import up to three months’ supply of e-liquid. The e-liquid must also be in childproof packaging. If the importation is for commercial purposes rather than personal use, it will not be allowed under the Customs Act 1901 due to Australia's strict laws on illegal substances such as nicotine and tobacco products.
If you are an international traveler who wants to bring back some high quality e-liquids with you home from your trip down under, then make sure that they're in childproof containers.
What is the cut-off age for buying e-cigarettes and e-liquid?
You must be at least 18 years old to buy and use e-cigarettes in Australia. The national age of sale is 18 years old, but some states have different laws, so check your local government website before purchasing.
Vaping is a safer alternative to smoking, that could change your life.
If you’re a smoker and want to quit, vaping can be a great way to do that. Vaping does not contain carcinogenic tobacco products like cigarettes, it contains only vapour and nicotine.
The main reason people use vaping as an alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes is because smoking kills up to half of its users – if you smoke an average of one pack per day for 35 years, your risk of death from any cause will increase by about 25%. By switching over to vaping instead, you’re making yourself 50% safer!
If you’re thinking about starting on vaping, it’s important to know that there are many options to choose from. Do your research first so that you can find the right device for you and be sure to read up on the laws around vaping. Don’t be afraid of asking questions either!
