Vaping Treatment

Delivered to your door

If you feel a need to vape within 30 minutes of waking up, you have likely developed nicotine dependence.

For someone who fits into this behavioural pattern, nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is often recommended for vaping treatment.

Although further research is needed into the effects of vaping, research into smoking shows that NRT is the most effective treatment, doubling quit rates in many patients.

As smoking and vaping both contain the same addictive substance, the treatment guidelines share similarities.

Nearly 2 in 3 current smokers reported having tried vaping

Understanding the link between the treatment for vaping and smoking.

Many people who currently use vaping products were former smokers. With this in mind, it’s essential to understand the correlation between the most effective treatments for both smoking and vaping.

Vaping vs. Smoking

Although cigarettes and vaping products may differ in many ways, they share the same addictive ingredient – nicotine.

When someone accesses treatment to quit smoking, they are being treated primarily for nicotine withdrawal, as is the same with someone who vapes.

While studies continue into the long term effects of vaping products, one certain fact remains that nicotine is a highly addictive chemical.

Understanding nicotine dependence

Research surrounding the harmful effects of tobacco are undeniable, highlighting it as a carcinogenic, cancer causing agent. People are now aware of the potentially fatal results of smoking, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer, but what about vaping?

Although vaping products do not contain tobacco, they still contain nicotine and a number of other unknown chemicals, due to synthetic flavouring and compounds. Due to the mass amount of flavour profiles and types of e-liquid available for vaping products, the list of potential ingredients is virtually endless. It is this unknown factor that plays a primary role in the question of whether or not vaping products are better, worse or equally as harmful as cigarettes.

With many effective treatments available for nicotine withdrawal, there’s never been a better time to prioritise your health and quit vaping. Although quitting vape products can be a challenging endeavour, combination treatments and NRT have shown promising results in this field.

Vaping treatments

At hub.health, our medical team specialise in vaping cessation and will prescribe a treatment based on the needs of each patient.

When creating a treatment plan, your assigned clinician will consider your current state of health, family history and what dose of nicotine you are currently using in your vaping products. After reviewing your patient profile, a member of the hub.health medical team may prescribe you one of the following treatment options, as recommended by Therapeutic Guidelines Australia.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)

NRT involves providing your body with low, therapeutic doses of nicotine, to reduce symptoms associated with withdrawal. This controlled release of nicotine allows you to slowly eliminate the chemical from your body, while simultaneously reducing cravings to smoke.

Combination therapy

The right course of quit smoking treatment will be determined by your medical team. In many cases, combination therapy is initially recommended. This type of therapy involves utilising both a long-lasting NRT treatment and a faster-acting dispersal method to achieve successful results. As an example, NRT patches may be used as a long-lasting treatment in combination with products such as lozenges or gum, as required.


After considering your medical history and previous attempts to quit nicotine use in the past, your medical team may recommend pharmacotherapy as an aid to cease vaping. Pharmacotherapy is generally recommended only to those who are being treated for nicotine dependence.

The type of treatment you will be prescribed will be determined by a discussion between yourself and your assigned clinician. As with all available treatment options, there is a minimal chance of side effects, so it’s important to discuss any concerns with your medical team. Products administered for pharmacotherapy act on neurotransmitters to alleviate cravings and symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal.

This form of treatment is considered to be safe in most cases and highly effective when combined with behavioural modification techniques.
