Smoking cessation options, with a nicotine script provided by an Australian general practitioner.
If you are new to vaping, it is recommended you choose a device before booking with me.
Consults are $82 for a 12 month script (unfortunately no Medicare rebate or further concession is currently available).
With the script, your product can be ordered from your usual preferred overseas supplier (as long as they fulfill Australian TGA safety regulations). Alternatively, you may be able to source it via an Australian online or local pharmacy.
Book and pay for your online consultation.
Once payment is approved, you will receive a password to access the medical and smoking questionnaire
Complete the online medical and smoking questionnaire and press ‘submit’.
All responses are confidential.
I may need to contact you to clarify responses.
Allow up to 5 business days, and as appropriate your script will be emailed direct to you.

There is no long-term data on the safety of vaping (with or without nicotine). A substantial and growing body of evidence regarding smoking cessation options can be accessed here, which gives a balanced view of the role of vaping for smoking cessation:
Anyone under 18 is not eligible for this service, regardless of circumstances. The Australian legislative position is absolutely clear on this – Vaping (with or without nicotine) is UNSAFE for young people to experiment with. There are valid concerns that vaping when young may lead to smoking. However, I am happy to discuss other smoking cessation strategies with anyone under 18. And please, make sure to explore what QUIT.org.au can offer you.
