Why should I use the nuumi nicotine cessation system?
With nicotine weaning with nuumi, you ingest nicotine via the smart vaporizer and can therefore give up smoking. The nicotine intake is reduced step by step, which greatly reduces the physical withdrawal symptoms and the craving to smoke. The vaporizer poses a much lower burden on your physical health than conventional cigarettes because it does not contain harmful substances such as tar, lead and arsenic. In order to optimally supplement nicotine weaning, nuumi provides scientifically based behavioral training with which the mechanisms of one's own smoking behavior are analyzed, counter-strategies are learned and relapses are prevented.
In which countries is the program offered?
At the moment we only offer the program in Germany. However, we are working on expanding our offer to other countries.
How does the program work?
The nuumi program is divided into three phases: Switch, Reduce, and Quit.
The first phase involves switching from cigarettes to the nuumi vaporizer. The aim is to completely cover your nicotine needs with the vaporizer. At the same time, your smoking behavior is analyzed in order to establish a personalized nicotine cessation program. Live tracking and coaching will help you during the switch.
This is followed by the reduction of your nicotine intake. With gradual cessation, your physical dependence will weaken and your craving for cigarettes will decrease. Additionally, habits are broken with the help of behavioral training, which consists of informative audios and interactive tasks, to combat your psychological addiction.
The last phase of the program is quitting. When your nicotine consumption has been reduced to a minimum and your addiction controls no longer controls you due to the behavioral training, you set a "quit date" - this is the day after which you do not use cigarettes or the vaporizer.
How does nuumi help me quit smoking?
Smoking is doubly addictive: physical and psychological. Nuumi therefore offers a holistic solution and combines gentle nicotine withdrawal with behavioral training. The product in turn consists of an intelligent vaporizer and the nuumi app. Like a fitness tracker, the vaporizer records your smoking behavior in real time, gradually reducing your nicotine intake. At the same time, with behavioral training and coaching via the app, you develop new skills in order to consciously control your actions, impulses and emotions in accordance with your goals. Thus, step by step, you gain control over the cravings generated by triggers in order to discard your smoking habits in the long term.
What does the program cost?
The program consists of a vaporizer and a subscription. It is important to know that the vaporizer can only be purchased in connection with the associated subscription. You make a one-off payment of €59 for the intelligent vaporizer to quit nicotine. The costs for the subscription are based on your individual nicotine needs and start at €49 per month. This includes: access to behavioral training and 24/7 coaching in the nuumi app + pods for your individual nicotine needs, which will be sent to you automatically.
How long is the program?
The duration of the program depends on two factors: First, the length of therapy is based on individual smoking behavior – a person who smokes five cigarettes a day will generally quit faster than a person who smokes cigarettes 20 times a day . On the other hand, the duration of the smoking cessation program depends on how much time is invested in behavioral training (we recommend at least 5-10 minutes a day). Our research shows that the average program length is three to five months.
Do I have to stop smoking immediately?
No, you don't have to stop smoking straight away. Within the first two weeks you should get used to switching from cigarettes to the vaporizer. The tobacco is ultimately replaced by the vaporizer liquids. Even if you still reach for a cigarette from time to time, you can continue the program without any problems. Our AI coach will always be by your side along the way and will make quitting smoking as easy as possible for you.
Are there withdrawal symptoms with the nuumi program?
Due to the gentle, personalized nicotine weaning, many of the otherwise typical withdrawal symptoms either do not occur at all or only occur to a lesser extent. We cannot guarantee that you will stop smoking completely without withdrawal symptoms, but you will learn how to deal with them better in our behavioral training. Emotional states such as stress, inner restlessness and insomnia are often regulated in everyday life with the usual reach for a cigarette. With the help of scientifically based behavioral training, you will learn in no time at all how to eliminate negative thoughts and feelings through self-regulation and mental strength - i.e. without cigarettes.
Why am I coughing more?
At the beginning of the switch to the vaporizer, you may have to cough more often. There are several reasons for this: Conventional cigarettes contain anesthetics that suppress the urge to cough so that you can inhale the smoke undisturbed. The vaporizer does not contain any narcotic substances, which means that coughing is not suppressed. In addition, your lungs recover very quickly after giving up cigarettes and the cilia in your lungs destroyed by smoking grow back. This can also lead to coughing. So basically, the initial cough is a good sign - you're giving up the toxins from cigarettes and your body is recovering. After a few days, the cough goes away in most people. Make sure you're drinking enough water.
