Want to stop smoking?

Acupuncture can help you stop smoking. The success rate varies depending on what you read, but on average it will be between 50 and 70 percent. This is a much better success rate than if you try to stop on your own.

Acupuncture targets both the physical and the mental nicotine addiction. When you stop smoking the physical nicotine addiction causes withdrawal symptoms, such as anxiety, nervousness, irritability, concentration problems, headaches, sweating, sleep disorders, constipation, increased appetite and the mental addiction.

Acupuncture affects most smokers in various ways:
– it increases the willpower to stop smoking
– they start to find that tobacco tastes disgusting
– withdrawal symptoms decrease.

Frequently, classic body acupuncture is combined with ear acupuncture, including the use of painless staying needles which remain in the ear for a couple of days. This will diminish the “desire for cigarettes”, the need for nicotine.

The acupuncture treatment will be started within 24 hours of the “stop day”. You need to plan this “stop day” carefully during a calm period in your life, and live consciously for this day. And this day does not necessarily need to be the 1st of January!

Usually, 3 to 4 treatments over a period of 3 weeks are enough. You will get your own treatment plan, depending on your “smoker profile”. It is very important that you yourself also want to stop smoking permanently. And of course acupuncture does not replace your own motivation and your perseverance.
