    The stupidity of the 3 month import limit.....

    .....is especially emphasised when you drop your nic level by half.

    Thats all I want to say at the moment actually.

    Well it's never been enforced. Theoretically you need a prescription (to import a non-approved medication) which no doctor will write for you (in most states including Queensland) and that is what would set your three month limit. We don't do that, no one except Queensland Health gives a rats A anyway, and well vaporgeddon ....

    While they can turn a blind eye they will do so. Mostly, we are the "grand experiment" in the eyes of public health, while we know we are saving our lives and improving the quality of life in those around us and anyone who we can influence. Only Queensland Health and possibly WA Health want smokers to kill themselves as fast as possible, while feeling good about it and patting each other on the back in private.

    It's an arbitrary figure, which basically tells you they don't know what it should be and don't especially care. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth too hard.

    Here, it's 120ml per shipment, and that supposed to be only once a month. No problem if you're like me and adds their own nic, but someone who's limited to buying premixed and chews through 5ml per day (not hard to do), you're going to come up a week short if you follow the rules.

    I've never pushed the rules imposed here by importing more than 120ml of nic in a shipment, and they've never refused importation when that 120ml is combined with other liquids in the same box so I'm not going to look my horse in the mouth too hard either.

    They also rarely add VAT when a shipment is over the limit, unless it's actually worth their while to collect it.

    Believe me, I'd rather have what you guys have available especially since the offshore Oz specific sites have sprouted up.

    Stu.

    Saldy i seen that thread title and thought it was a spammer post with another livestream link....

    If your only trying to get normal sized bottles your fine. However if you order 55 gallon drums of 200mg nic then yes they will have a problem.

    Now that I have gone through the process, just read the 3 months when importing as a 'suggestion' like those yellow signed 80km/h corners. Admittedly some really are 80 if you aren't driving a sports car but I digress...
