Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to stop smoking before I start using Vice-Breaker?
First prize would be to stop smoking from day one on Vice-Breaker however this is not a condition of Vice-Breaker working effectively. We all know smoking is both an addiction and a habit. Vice-Breaker takes away the cravings, with the intent to break the habit. If you continue to smoke, you are not helping to break that habit, even though your cravings will be less and less and your desire to smoke is substantially diminished. Although the odd cigarette while on Vice-BreakerTM will not cause any adverse side-effects, it is not encouraged. However if you should decide to continue smoking you will more than likely find, as most users do, that after 4 to 5 days on Vice-Breaker you will wonder why you lit up that cigarette.
Will one month’s supply be sufficient to stop smoking?
For most of our clients one month on Vice-Breaker has been sufficient to quit smoking for good. It all depends on the strength of your desire to quit.
What side-effects can I expect when taking Vice-Breaker?
The best side-effect ever – you lose your desire to smoke. To date no negative side-effects have been reported. It is important though to recognise the difference between side-effects and detox symptoms. Some smokers do experience mild detox symptoms in the first two or three days. They should rejoice because this is a sign that your body is also working towards trying to heal itself by pushing out the toxic residues of previous smoking every which way. Detox symptoms you may experience are: headaches, flu-like symptoms, nausea, dizziness, increased coughing, sore throat, blocked or runny nose, constipation or diarrhea. Try to ride through these symptoms and drink lots of water to help flush the toxins out quicker. You won’t regret it. If, however, you should experience any of these detox symptoms for longer than the first week please call us to discuss.
I have been a heavy smoker for over 40 years. Can Vice-Breaker really work for me?
Strange as it may seem the hard-core, “smoked since I was a teenager”, seniors are the ones for whom Vice-Breaker really works well, much to their amazement. After 40 years of smoking you will most likely by now be experiencing the negative health effects of smoking and that together with the knowledge that henceforth your medical costs can only rise, should be incentive enough to kick the habit. Yes, Vice-Breaker will work for you and make quitting much easier as long as you want to quit and are committed to giving up. It takes two to tango!
Can I take Vice-Breaker more than twice a day?
No, increasing the dose is not recommended and is unlikely to be more effective. If you are struggling with cravings in the late afternoons, try taking the evening capsule earlier. I cannot stress enough how important it is to stay hydrated. So drink more water.
Will Vice-Breaker clash with my medications?
To date we have not had a single report of Vice-Breaker clashing with any pharmaceutical drugs. However, we do recommend that you take the list of ingredients (available on the website) to your doctor and get his/her approval first.
Can I use Vice-Breaker when pregnant?
Firstly, smoking is an absolute no-no when pregnant. Please read my article How smoking can harm your baby.
If you are pregnant and still smoking then Vice-Breaker, as a quit smoking aid, would be one of the safest options for your baby. We have already had many moms-to-be use Vice-Breaker successfully and without harm, however we always recommend the client takes the list of ingredients to her doctor and gets his approval first. If Dad is also a smoker it is imperative that he quits too in order to give your baby the healthiest start in life.
If I stop smoking in the first week or two can I stop taking Vice-Breaker and keep the rest for in case I relapse?
This is not recommended. Sometimes people quit very soon into the course then think because they’re not craving nicotine anymore they don’t need to carry on taking the capsules. Firstly, the herbs in Vice-Breaker work together to clear your lungs of previous smoking residues as well as heal your lungs. You need to give them more time. When your lungs are properly cleansed you will experience an increase in your energy levels and vitality and improvement in your health. Secondly the blend of herbs is dealing with symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. You may have ditched the nicotine but withdrawal symptoms can hang around for a while. We strongly recommend you finish the one month course.
