Acupuncture can help with smoking cessation by helping the person feel calm. Nicotine withdrawal causes anxiety and irritability. The treatments help dispel that and aid you in making better choices from a calmer place. It also can help the body detox. There are some good herbal formulas that help with the withdrawal symptoms. It is not, however, a magic bullet. If you truly want to quit (and not just think you should) its a great help in the process! If you have other questions, feel free to call me and we can chat.
