Acupuncture has been used to help fight addiction and decrease cigarette desire for a long time. Many people have had success and clinic research is supporting these claims now. In a recent published study, “Alternative Smoking Cessation Aids: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials,” researchers put data from 14 different studies together to see which alternative techniques helped patients stop smoking.

There is a point is called “Quit Smoking,” which is used specifically to quit 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 quit smoking and it does this by changing the way cigarettes taste, after a few acupuncture for quit smoking treatments, some people may start to feel the taste of smoking becoming nasty, not pleasant and enjoyable as before.

If smoking is part of a daily life, not smoking can make your day feel “crazy.” All of this is normal and challenging. I recommend that people use all the support systems they have available.
