Are nicotine replacement aids unsuccessful for you? relapsing intermittently? are you looking for a fresh start from a stale habit? experience VAPING as an alternative measure less harmful on your health & wealth than cigarette smoking now!
We provide advocacy through the Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy (AVCA), a NZ charitable trust board whom provide insight and advocacy towards THR via safer alternative methods, global updates, emerging science/rationale, as well as advocating for clarity and transparency around the regulatory process in Aotearoa. - Our mission is to 'educate & inform' the misinformed.
AVCAs positional mantra is to empower the vaping community to design and deliver solutions to smokers when transitioning from deadly combustibles to significantly lesser harmful products.


  • I have been educating and advocating vaping as an alternative option for smokers from combustible cigarettes since 2010 and intrinsically know vaping is an integral part of the transitioning process, so in 2014 established Wellyvapez Advocacy (currently Aotearoa Vapers Hub) to best inform and incentivise smokers in minimising exposure to tobacco related afflictions by switching to less harmful delivery methods. We are a community site for novice vapers to veteran vapers & hobbyists all over who share an enthused interest in tobacco harm reduction, vaping topics, vape pics, reviews/tips, vaping news/blogs & resource information with a strong focus on advocacy, check out the links on top of our page such as: Vape Vids & Events to gain a perspective of the lifestyle changing sub-culture of vaping and what's emerging on the vape scene.

  • visit Vape Tutorials & Vape Files for vapers to develop an understanding of the basic variables and safety principles associated with vaping as well as smokers contemplating switching and just needing information on transitioning to vaping to best achieve effective cessation from analogs altogether!

  • Aotearoa Vapers in collaboration with AVCA endeavour to stay in touch with ever changing regulatory laws and health policies with emerging evidence based research on vaping and it's effects, accessed here in Vape Advocacy & Vape Files as new studies arise, as well as keeping updated via the Vape Advocacy Education Project in VAEP Video's that was set up by a registered nurse to keep people informed of the truth about vaping, plus keep up to date with the Vape News & Resources section for all your commentary on vaping around the globe.
