Frequently Asked Questions
How is VAPIX® so effective?
Unlike patches or gum, VAPIX® targets the two elements of smoking addiction, not just one. Smoking is addictive because of the combination of the physiological addictiveness of nicotine (and many other chemicals in combination) and the habits established through regular cigarette use. VAPIX® is a successful smoking substitution system because it contains nicotine and simulates the action of smoking - satisfying the habitual element of smoking addiction.
Is VAPIX cheaper than smoking?
Yes. The starter kit alone, which includes 1x VAPIX Capsule, is often better value for money than purchasing a pack of cigarettes as each Capsule is approximately equivalent to 1.5 packs of cigarettes worth of puffs. Capsule packs are only $24.99 for two Capsules - the equivalent of 3 packs of cigarettes.
