Smoking is a strong habit. Quitting smoking is not an easy thing and you need help to succeed. Acupuncture is one way that can help your success.
Here are 5 things you need to know about acupuncture to stop smoking.
Acupuncture is effective in helping to stop smoking
Acupuncture has been used to fight addiction and limit the desire to smoke for a long time. Many people succeed and research proves it.
In a recent study, experts collected data from 14 different studies to see which alternative techniques helped patients quit smoking. The acupuncture study examined 823 patients. The results of the research show that acupuncture and hypnotherapy can help patients stop smoking. The scientific world does not definitely recommend acupuncture to stop smoking, but more and more research shows that acupuncture helps many people.
Acupuncture helps overcome dependence on smoking by stopping anxiety, limiting desire, reducing irritability and fatigue, increasing relaxation, and helping detoxify the body. Acupuncture can also restore balance in the body and speed up the recovery process.
There is an acupuncture point to stop smoking
There is a point "Tim Mee" that is used specifically to stop smoking. The point is on one finger above the fold of the wrist, on the inside of the arm. This point is used to help people stop smoking and change the taste of cigarettes.
This acupuncture point alone is not enough. Smoking is a complicated habit. Tim Mee is a powerful acupuncture point, but must be used with other points to fight the urge to smoke, balance the body and the recovery process.
Acupuncture can reduce the desire to smoke, but not can change habits
Physical desire is only one aspect of dependence on cigarettes. Often, smoking is more difficult to stop compared to physical dependence.
If smoking helps you deal with difficult situations, quitting smoking can make you miserable. If smoking is part of your daily ritual, not smoking can make your day awkward. This condition is normal.
You are recommended to use all possible support systems.
- Ask for help from family and friends.
- Join the support community.
- Look for other non-smoking activities.
Stopping smoking requires support, physically, emotionally and from the environment.
