Many smokers who try to stop smoking commonly experience anxiety, restlessness, hand tremor, poor concentration, mood swings and insomnia. These symptoms are known as “addiction”.

In oriental medicine perspective, smoking addiction is caused by constant ‘hunger’ to smoke. When this ‘hunger’ is not fulfilled, nicotine constantly bothers the brain. Acupuncture helps stop smoking by first reducing the ‘hunger’ to smoke, detoxifying by getting rid of nicotine and relieving other symptoms like anxiety and mood swings.
