    I'm so sorry to hear all this BS you guys are having to deal with down under. I've never been to Australia yet, but I plan on visiting some friends in the future. This news is horrible. I think this news is just going to make things worse because it's going to open up and illegal underground black market for getting nicotine into the country. That can't be better.

    Just by reading the above excerpt in post 61 and other documents in that gov. link. Even many in US think some sort of legislation is inevitable there..........from what I've read.

    They are so Orwellian and will either tax highly or ban and turn us into criminals. It is sad when long addicted smokers have finally found a way to kick the habit.............don't mean to be pessimistic, but it's hard to imagine a good outcome.

    So much great information on ECF.

    Hmmm, so basically, my 902 and five bottles of liquid will make it into QLD okay? Im honestly confused by all this legislative jargon lol... I just want to try using these ecigs to see if i can cut down, and possibly quit smoking...

    And if they do ban the import of liquid up here, is there anyone thatd send it up to me, all payed for of course?

    Feel free to pm me those who would be willing help a wannabe non-smoker:laugh:

    All the time cigarette sales are legal here, and all the time it's legal to bring in x amount of tobacco products, I will vape wherever the hell I like. THIS is the only attitude to have.

    I agree with you, if tasting or getting the juice on your skin could make you ill, we would hear about it here! Afterall isn't there Nicotine in the nicotine patch?

    It can make you ill actually... I take it you've never seen someone ODing on nic patches? Drip a drop of 100mg/ml nic juice on yourself and you would feel pretty similiar (ie ill or dead)...

    Anything with a decent level of nic concentration should be handled with care...

    I used a nicotine patch & ended up at the Doctor with overdose - and I'd worked it all out with the pharmacy first, what strength I'd need etc. Not nice. Nic juice is dangerous.

    I ordered nic juice for the first time, wondered whether it'd get through (to TAS) . Well it came yesterday and it had been opened, by Quarantine. I think it's cause the supplier put 'food flavouring' on the declaration. :laugh: Nothing removed, thank heavens.

    Probably not a lot . 18mg/ml of nicotine is a pretty weak concentration , at worst , some localised skin irritation.

    OTOH , 100mg/ml would definately cause problems. Nicotine is a Poison . Treat it as you would Arsenic or Cyanide. Perfectly safe when handled properly , deadly if not .

    I get 18mg/ml nic on my skin all the time... it's no problem, just take a break for a bit or you'll start to feel light headed and nautious from all the nicotine. (Same feeling you get from chain smoking high mg cigarettes)

    You must be a tough kid! :D
    But Rysup does get symptoms of sickness, even with just 18mg.

    I was vaping at the time (it's hard to stop when you're just getting started lol) so that might have something to do with it :)

    Yup.. treat it the same you would treat insecticides and industrial cleaning products when it is in strengths like 100mg/ml. I wear latex gloves when I am mixing up a batch of 50mg/ml from my 100mg/ml bottle. I'd also be wearing gloves if I was mixing and/or using insecticides and industrial strength cleaners as well. I've noticed, with strengths around the 18 to 24 mg/ml range that there is a tiny bit of necrosis (skin hardening/flaking) if you "continually" get it on your fingers without washing it off but no more than what I was getting when I was holding a cigarette in my hands smoking.
