Acupuncture has been used to help combat addiction and curb cigarette cravings for a long time.  Many people have had success and now research is supporting these claims.

"As soon as we notice that certain types of events 'like' to cluster together at certain times, we begin to understand the Chinese, whose theories of medicine, philosophy, and even building are based on a 'science' of meaningful coincidences."

Marie-Louise von Franz

Smoking is a strong, complicated addiction.  Quitting smoking is no small task and you will need lots of support to be successful.  You need the best tools to help with the physical and emotional symptoms, and acupuncture is a great resource to help you succeed.

Acupuncture is effective to help stop smoking

Acupuncture helps with smoking addiction in many ways.  It stops jitters, curbs cravings, lessens irritability and restlessness, increases relaxation and helps detoxify the body.  It can also restore balance in your constitution and jumpstart the healing process.

Smoking cigarette

There is a "stop smoking" acupuncture point

There is a point is called "Tim Mee," which is used specifically to stop smoking.  It's located one finger's width above your wrist crease, on the inside of your arm.  It is used solely to help people stop smoking and it does this by altering the way cigarettes taste.

Fighting with smoking cravings

Acupuncture can reduce cravings

Physical cravings are only one aspect of cigarette addiction.  Many times, the habit of smoking is harder to stop than the physical addiction. I recommend that people use all the support systems they have available.  Quit smoking requires support-physically, emotionally and socially.
