Acupuncture Can Help You Quit Smoking

At one point I would have told anyone who had asked that acupuncture could not help people who wanted to quit smoking.  But recent research shows that acupuncture can help reduce the cravings for nicotine in people who want to quit smoking.  There are Acupuncture Points that help with smoking cessation.

This study from the American Journal of Medicine shows that acupuncture and hypnosis can help people quit smoking.  You can read more about it here:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22502956

Another paper shows that at 8 months and at 5 years those people who had acupuncture and wanted to quit smoking had kept their smoking habit reduced during the follow up reports.  The abstract of the paper is here:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11676576

So, you can see that acupuncture can help those who are interested in quitting smoking.  The Smoking Cessation Points are found on the ear and on the wrist.  The treatment is quite painless and produces results rather quickly.  Herbs can be given to help with the process.  While not a magic bullet, acupuncture and herbal medicine might be able to help you quit smoking when other methods have fallen short.
