Stop Smoking Start Vaping


If you smoke or vape nicotine, this book is for you. Vaping is the most popular and most effective aid for quitting smoking in Australia and other western countries. However, it is poorly understood. This book dispels the myths about vaping and outlines the evidence in an easy-to-read and authoritative manner with over 400 scientific references. It also provides step-by-step advice on how to make the switch from smoking tobacco, and why vaping is controversial.

Part 1) explains what vaping is and the scientific evidence that underpins it. Is it safer than smoking? What is popcorn lung? How harmful is nicotine? Is vaping an effective quitting aid? Is it legal in Australia?

Part 2) is a practical guide to getting started with vaping. What device should you buy, how much nicotine do you need, what are mouth-to-lung vaping and ‘nicotine salts’ and how do you vape safely.

Part 3) explores the controversies about vaping. Why is it opposed by most Australian health and medical authorities? What are the hidden reasons underpinning their objections? How should vaping be regulated in Australia and what can we do to accelerate the uptake of vaping?

Be inspired by the fifteen case studies of former smokers. These are real stories by real people just like you and show how vaping could change your life for the better.
