Minister for Health and Aged Care - press conference - 28 February 2024

Vaping or e-cigarettes were sold to our community and communities right around the world as a therapeutic good that would be a really useful tool for hardened smokers, usually middle aged and older Australians who have been smoking for decades, but were finding it really difficult to kick that habit. We now know, after a few years of this health experiment though, that vaping is something very different. This is a deliberate and cynical exercise by the Big Tobacco industry to recruit a new generation to nicotine addiction.

13.00% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 2.6 million current smokers in Australia 15.20% of men are current smokers but only 10.90% of women.
