Quit Smoking with Chinese Medicine

First of all, don’t give yourself too hard a time.

Most people find quitting smoking to be a difficult endeavour.

Smoking is a physical and psychological habit that is hard to eliminate. You will
face difficult physical symptoms that are often coupled with psychological states.
Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, fatigue, headache or flu-like aches.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) aims to facilitate your journey of becoming
healthier through different treatment methods. We can help you fight the urge
and resist the triggers together.

Smoking can be a multifaceted and personalised habit often interwoven into
various aspects of life such as socialisation, solitude, work breaks and
stress/anxiety management.

Although people can differ in regards to the reasons why they smoke, there are
several principles and actions that usually provide for an easier quitting process.

Most people find that quitting is easier if they make a plan. Ideally it is best to
choose a time that is not too stressful and that allows you to get away from your
usual routines that involve smoking.

If you don’t have this luxury then simply thinking of the typical times when you
smoke and coming up with some strategies or alternative activities can go a long
way.

An important thing to appreciate is that cigarettes and nicotine have key
functions in people’s lives and these often need to be accounted for via some
technique or replacement method.

For example an increase in exercise, periods of deep breathing or meditation can
alter brain chemistry in a way that is similar to that when smoking.

Stress or anxiety management are also key factors that will need to be
addressed, any brief activity that you find relaxing can be done routinely on your
breaks during work or any other key times.

Acupuncture assists people to quit by helping to regulate the actions of
endorphin and other neurotransmitters that are thrown into disarray when one
stops smoking

In this way it can assist with lessening the frequency and duration of physical
cravings.

Generally acupuncture is given twice weekly for the first month, depending on
the level of addiction. What Happens When I Quit?
