Charter - Principals

The New Nicotine Alliance Australia is a not-for-profit organisation, funded by donations from private individuals and organisations. We receive no funding from tobacco, e-cigarette or pharmaceutical companies or their affiliates. 


Our board and associate members advocate for responsible, pragmatic regulatory change, that would contribute greatly to public health Australia. We wish to see a mature public and organisational understanding as to the potential of less harmful nicotine products, including their safety and efficacy, and hence contribute to the reduction in cigarette smoking

Smoking Prevalence

Approximately 3 million Australians still smoke. Although we have witnessed a steady decline in recent decades, smoking rates virtually stalled during 2013 to 2016.

Tobacco Harm Reduction

A term used to to describe ways of reducing harm from cigarette smoking without necessarily giving up the use of nicotine – This includes Vaping, Snus and Heat not burn.

Support For Smokers

We plan on providing a database of vapers who offer transitional support to current smokers. Meanwhile, please visit The Vapers Table for assistance with transitioning from smoking.

Current Government policy is detrimental to Public health – 
Vapers deserve access to nicotine too

Vaping at a glance

Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos, from the Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center of Greece, has found that nicotine has little effect on cardiovascular disease. 

While nicotine with may be addictive, at least a dependency,  non-combustible products that use nicotine are preferable to cigarettes as a way of delivering nicotine

Experts take a look at the evidence on some of the issues that surround the use of e-cigarettes – it turns out there is not as much debate as we thought.
