Ways to Quit Smoking -
to stop smoking has become more popular recently because of its reported
success. Usually one half-hour treatment with the laser is sufficient to
enable you to quit smoking. The process, also known as low level, soft,
or cold, laser treatment, is safe and painless. This is perhaps another
reason for its popularity. Like many alternative treatments, laser
therapy is not scientifically proven.
How Does It Work?
The stop smoking laser treatment is
actually based on the principals of Chinese acupuncture. It relieves the
physical craving for nicotine by stimulating energy points in the body
which helps in the production of endorphins. Endorphins are produced
naturally in our brains and white blood cells, and act as painkillers.
Most laser treatment clinics also provide methods to help you get rid of
the psychological habit of smoking.
Is it Successful?
Laser treatment claims a success rate as
high as 85%. The actual success may be lower and certainly depends
on how well the overall treatment program has been designed. As we have
said before all of the ways to quit smoking involve a two step process.
First reduce the nicotine craving in the body and second, get rid of the
(mental) habit of reaching for a cigarette.
Where Do I Go For Laser Treatment?
You need to receive the
treatment from a certified operator. There are more and more
clinics that now offer this service. Try the Yellow pages or
Internet to find a provider in your area.
