More people in the United States are addicted to nicotine than to any other drug
Most smokers become addicted to nicotine, a drug that is found naturally in tobacco. Research suggests that nicotine may be as addictive as heroin, cocaine, or alcohol. Addiction is a brain disorder characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences. Quitting smoking can be hard. Since acupuncture works with your brain this may help you achieve your goal to successful smoking cessation.
How does it work?
Acupuncture performed on certain parts of your body will help stimulate the brain. Then your brain releases endorphins in to the body as a natural pain reliever. The endorphin release reduces physical cravings and anxiety associated with nicotine withdrawal. Adding Chinese herbs may help speed up curbing your craving for nicotine.
