Accupuncture for Nicotine Addiction

Is it a good idea? What do you think?

I don’t personally think acupuncture would have any affect on nicotine addiction other than mental. No different from going to a hypnotherapist, IMO.

That’s not to say that it cant work…I just don’t think it’s something that truly reduces your cravings. I think it is all in state of mind

Champix/chantix worked so well for me. Yeah it can make you sick for some but it’s chemical and it’s clinical and it’s better science but because it’s a medication it’s often frowned upon.

It’s science and after trying many different things it worked so easily for me.

Back in the days that I smoked I went to an acupuncturist for dizziness. I would smoke a cigarette before and after. I do think it’s kinda relaxing.

It is one of those things that if you believe it will work, it could have some benefit. There’s no harm in it anyhow.

Here is my two cents. I think it depends on the quality of the acupuncturist/traditional Chinese medicine practitioner. I am not sure if it does or does not work. However, I think it may work for some and may not work for some.

Wellbutrin made me stop vaping. I couldn’t feel pleasure from nicotine anymore. It blocks nicotine receptors in the brain.

I’ve tried Wellbutrin. Thank you for the advice, though.

I think acupuncture is great but it’s so bloody expensive.

Then again so are cigarettes.

I want to get acupuncture for my constapation and to help me lose weight in a healthy way but I just can’t afford it.

It’s $100 first visit then $80 a visit and you are supposed to go atleast every two weeks.

So no acupuncture for me at this point.

If I was rich as such I would get acupuncture once a fortnight.

I might get it, because my parents are well-off and they help me out sometimes.
