eCigarettes and vaping

eCigarettes allow the user to inhale nicotine and other chemicals in a vapour rather than smoke, hence 'vaping'. Does vaping help people quit smoking and is it safe?


Standard drinks

An Australian standard drink contains 10 grams of alcohol. By counting standard drinks you can keep track of your drinking.


GHB (Fantasy)

Using GHB carries a high risk of overdose due to the small difference between the amount required to produce a high and that which causes overdose.


Cocaine: use with other drugs

Snorting and injecting cocaine can result in long-term effects on your health. Using other stimulants such as ecstasy with cocaine can increase the risk of overdose.


Smoking: what are the effects?

There is no safe level of tobacco use. Some long-term effects of smoking include yellow teeth, bad breath, a risk of mouth cancer and increased stroke risk.
