Vaping to Quit Smoking?

At Vape Merchant we invite smokers to try an alternative, one that requires very little change to what they currently do, but that will help to improve their health, wellbeing and finances. 

When first trying vape products as a smoking alternative, it can be confusing as to which device, flavour and strength is right for you. We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you on your journey.

Vaping to quit smoking?

Vaping can be a way to quit smoking by getting nicotine without the harmful carcinogens and toxins that come from burning tobacco. 

Although vaping’s much less harmful than smoking, it’s not harmless. So you should plan to eventually quit vaping too, but only when you know you won’t go back to smoking.

What device should I use as a smoking alternative?

For smokers intending to quit, we recommend the PHIX Pod Kit. It's simple to use – one device and a variety of disposable PHIX Pods to choose from.

PHIX pods contain nicotine salt based e-liquid to satisfy nicotine cravings. These are best suited for those looking for an experience that mimics traditional cigarettes. 

Are Vape Merchant products safe?

All Vape Merchant eLiquid products have been tested for compliance with New Zealand product safety standards. If you have any questions or would like more information, email us at


Is Vaping safe?

Studies show it to be significantly less harmful than smoking, however, there are currently no studies available that identify any long-term risks associated with vaping.

At the end of the day the best choice is not to inhale any substance into your lungs. If you don’t already smoke then don’t start vaping. If you do smoke then vaping may have the potential to help you quit.
