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 both physically and psychologically addictive. Nuumi therefore offers a holistic solution and combines a gentle nicotine cessation with behavioral training. The product, in turn, is composed of a smart vaporizer and the nuumi app. Like a fitness tracker, the vaporizer records your smoking behavior in real time and gradually reduces your nicotine intake. In parallel, you build new skills with behavioral training and coaching via the app to manage 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 give up your smoking habits long-term.
How long does it take to complete 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.
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 €70 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.
Will I experience any withdrawal symptoms?
Due to the gentle, personalized nicotine cessation, many of the otherwise typical withdrawal symptoms either do not appear at all or only occur to a lesser extent. We cannot guarantee that you will stop smoking completely without experiencing withdrawal symptoms, but with our behavioral training you will learn to deal with them better. Emotions such as stress, inner restlessness and insomnia are often regulated in everyday life by grabbing a cigarette. With the help of scientifically based behavioral training, you will quickly learn how to eliminate negative thoughts and feelings through self-regulation and mental strength, i.e. without cigarettes.
Do I have to stop smoking immediately?
No, you don't have to stop smoking straight away. Within the first two weeks you will 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 and guide you through the process.
