NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet admits to vaping and reveals his favorite flavor
- Mr Perrottet said he had the ‘occasional steam’
- Premier said vapes got him away from cigarettes
The New South Wales Premier has admitted he occasionally puffs things out.
Dominic Perrottet revealed he sometimes uses e-cigarettes while speaking to 2Day FM’s morning radio crew Hughesy, Ed & Erin on Friday.
Mr Perrottet said he had the “occasional vape”, with “mixed fruit” being his preferred flavour.
Host Erin Molan said because the premier is an adult he can make the decision to vape, but said when it comes to children, vaping is a “big problem”.
Dave Hughes contradicted his co-host, claiming that vaping is an issue for every age group.

“It’s a big issue for everyone. I was so addicted to it Premier. It’s so hard to let go of it because you’re craving it all day.’
Mr Perrottet replied: “That’s why you need a prescription”.
The Premier explained that many people, including himself, use a vape to quit smoking cigarettes.
“I think for a lot of kids that’s the challenge, we want to make sure we’re not encouraging younger people to start vaping or smoking,” Mr Perrottet said.
“It’s a balance and we have to get it right.”
In NSW, e-cigarettes containing nicotine are only available by prescription, but vapes are regularly sold on the black market.
