New Zealand government advises smokers to drop cigarettes and pick up vapes

Although the use of electronic cigarettes is banned in more and more public places, the use of electronic cigarettes will soon be promoted by the Ministry of Health as a safer alternative to cigarettes.

An official New Zealand website that provides information and advice on electronic cigarettes will be launched this month and a quit-smoking campaign will be launched in August.

The campaign replaces cigarettes with electronic cigarettes to help smokers quit smoking.

Especially for young Maori women, New Zealand’s total smoking rate is 13.8%, while Maori women’s smoking rate is as high as 32.5%.

The campaign marked a change in the position of the Ministry of Health, which has been cautious about the position of e-cigarettes.

A spokesman said that for smokers who want to quit smoking, “Vaping is a safe way”.

The scientific community agreed that the harm of electronic cigarettes is significantly lower than that of cigarettes, and it is likely to replace cigarettes to quit smoking, but more research is needed to prove it.

It is reported that a man named Danfoster started using electronic cigarettes ten years ago.

It also says that switching from cigarettes to electronic cigarettes is not only cheaper, but also seems to solve some health problems.

“I used to get a very serious sinus infection every three months, and now it’s completely gone,” Danfoster said.

He spends about $17 a pack of cigarettes a day, but he now spends up to $35 a week on e-liquids.

Ashburton spokesman Ben Youden said there was still a lot of misunderstanding about e-cigarettes, many people still thought it was as bad as smoking, and research showed that e-cigarettes were 95% less harmful than cigarettes.

Although the initial cost of e-cigarette equipment ranged from $50 to $100, financial gains quickly compensated for that cost.

In more than a year, the cost of using electronic cigarettes is only about 10% of that of cigarettes.

The New Zealand Vape Advisory Board is Expected to Become the Largest Vape Alliance

The CECMOL team traveled to New Zealand to conduct strategic cooperation with various regions and established the New Zealand Vape Advisory Committee. At present, the areas that have been cooperating, including Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton, have signed agreements with them. Members of the committee include well-known local distributors, wholesalers, distributors, brands and world organizations.

The New Zealand Vape Advisory Board is expected to become the largest e-cigarette alliance in New Zealand. On the one hand, it will help raise the acceptance of vapes by New Zealanders and get rid of the dangers of traditional cigarettes. On the other hand, it will add a new force to the e-cigarette market and provide e-cigarette companies with market information and consumption habits of the e-cigarette industry in New Zealand, so that the channels for publicity and promotion will be more abundant and it will promote the development of the e-cigarette industry.

New Zealand is a highly developed capitalist country. The World Bank ranks New Zealand as one of the most convenient countries in the world, and its economy has successfully transformed from an agricultural-based to an internationally competitive industrialized free market economy.

As is known to all, in 1990, the New Zealand government implemented a “smoke-free bill” in order to achieve a “smoke-free” environment in 2025. E-cigarettes are included, which could not be legally promoted and sold in the market, and could only be placed in opaque counters.


On December 1-2, 2018, the Oceania International E-cigarette Exhibition will be held at the ASB Exhibition Square in Auckland, New Zealand. Not long ago, in June of this year, the New Zealand Government Ministry of Health officially announced on its official website that e-cigarettes are fully legal (including nicotine vape juice and heated non-combustible products) E-cigarettes can be sold legally in the New Zealand market, hoping to save many lives lost in smoking-related diseases and meet the government’s goal of a total ban on smoking by 2025. Driven by factors such as policy support and market positives, the future of New Zealand’s e-cigarettes market is inestimable.
