Smoking Cessation

The Acushot Injection

Putting off smoking cessation is the worst thing that a smoker can do. The longer one is a smoker, the more difficult it becomes to quit using generic means. This is what most smokers have experienced in the past and some continue to experience to this day. A stop smoking injection is an effective way to help you stop the nicotine craving . While the recipient needs to endure only one shot in order to stop smoking, follow-up treatment consists of two weeks with a patch and oral medications to ease  symptoms.

In the simplest terms, a stop smoking injection would make the brain inhibit the sensory memories that it had stored regarding the "good" effects of nicotine. Once the brain stops recognizing nicotine as a good thing then one would have little to no urge to smoke again.

Latest Stop Smoking Aids

There has been a lot of press coverage on the latest "pill form" of stop smoking aids such as : Wellbutrin and Chantix. These  are available by prescription, do not contain nicotine, and help people to stop smoking.

Using  provides you with mild effects reminiscent of nicotine and eases symptoms of nicotine withdrawl. Chantix also neutralizes the effects of nicotine if a person smokes while using this drug - which means that the nicotine "high" or "rush" becomes less pleasurable and inviting.

Using Zyban or wellbutrin is much different. These latest stop smoking aids are anti-depressant drugs, which sometimes help smokers become less interested in smoking cigarettes by alleviating the discomfort that is associated with nicotine addiction.

Natural Stop Smoking Aids

Natural stop smoking aids use a combination of herbs to create a similar effect on the brain as nicotine but they are non-addictive and safe for your body. Natural stop smoking aids also ease the withdrawal symptoms from nicotine addiction. Most natural stop smoking aids use lobelia, which mimics the effects of nicotine on your body but is not addictive.

Stop Smoking Aids for Optimal Breathing

Inhalers and sprays are examples of natural stop smoking aids that are being made available to those who do not want to use the generic means. These sprays and inhalers enable users to clear nasal and throat passages that seem to be clogged when they are trying to stop smoking.

Chewable and Attachable Stop Smoking Aids

Those whose smoking addiction is linked to an oral fixation can opt to use gums as a stop smoking aid. The more natural ones would be most helpful since they won't have nicotine. This helps the quitter to avoid becoming addicted to the gum instead of a nicotine stick.

Acupuncture Can Help Break the Cigarette Habit

Acupuncture has turned a growing number of cigarette cravers into  ex-smokers. As said before, acupuncture is not a panacea or a magic cure in the treatment of smoking. It can, however, also reduce the cravings and lessen the withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting. A successful acupuncture program will include patient preparation, patient commitment, and education about what acupuncture will and will not do.

Oriental Medicine aims to treat the specific symptoms that are unique to each individual using a variety of techniques such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs, bodywork, lifestyle/dietary recommendations and energetic exercises to restore imbalances found in the body.
