With the most recent tax increase on cigarettes in the budget, we have been getting in more and more people who are trying to give up smoking for the benefit of their wallets whatever their health!
For some, it is easier said than done and they often need a extra aid to achieve their goals. Many people get stressed and anxious on giving them up - partially because all the relaxation and down time (they got on their cigarette breaks) are gone, and before long are back smoking again.
One of the principle aims of using acupuncture when trying to give up smoking is to limit cravings and help keep the individual relaxed during the critical first few weeks. This can be done easily from just a simple needle in ones ear, or a combination of acupuncture sessions during those initial weeks.
