As mentioned before one of the reasons many people go back to cigarettes is stress, as well as anxiety and depression, and quitting often amplifies those symptoms. Acupuncture treatments calm and relax the mind, helping to reduce anxiety and depressive feelings and alleviating the craving for nicotine. As an added bonus, acupuncture treatments will also begin to get your body back to a healthy state, stimulating the repair and healing of organs and body systems affected by smoking. Using acupuncture to aid in quitting smoking not only will make the transition easier on your mind and body, but it also reduces the chances of starting the habit up again.
Here are some tips to help get the most out of your acupuncture treatments:
-Drink plenty of water
-Eat healthy, balanced meals
-Avoid spending time around other smokers so you are less tempted
-Take walks daily
-Get a full night's sleep
