The Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association
The Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association (ATHRA) is a registered health promotion charity established to reduce the harm from tobacco smoking in Australia.
The best way to reduce the harm from smoking is to quit altogether. However, for smokers who are unable or unwilling to quit, switching to a reduced-risk alternative can be lifesaving. These include e-cigarettes, snus and heat-not-burn products. ATHRA strongly discourages the use of these products by non-smokers or minors.
VapeStix supports ATHRA and helps to provide customers with essential knowledge and information about vaping.
Legalise Vaping Australia
Legalise Vaping Australia was formed in 2017 as a joint initiative of MyChoice Australia and the Australian Taxpayers' Alliance, as a unique grassroots advocacy and activist organisation. Legalise Vaping Australia is dedicated to campaigning for the legalisation and risk proportionate regulation of vaping and e-cigarettes across Australia.
While we all know the best way to eliminate harm caused by smoking is to quit smoking completely, for those who are unable to quit, moving to smoke-free products provides an opportunity for better health and an improved life. E-cigarettes and vapes are endorsed by the National Health Service in the United Kingdom and Public Health England as being a better alternative to smoking and more effective for smoking cessation than nicotine-replacement therapy. Legalise Vaping Australia and its community of supporters are working to legalise vaping in Australia, ensuring Australian smokers have access to these less-harmful devices.
