Can acupuncture help you stop smoking?

Yes. Acupuncture has been used in drug detoxification and rehabilitation programs in the US since the late 1970s. Acupuncture can help you quit smoking because it can reset the brain's pleasure & reward centers, to help you avoid feeling the urge to reach for the next cigarette. It will stop the physiological need to smoke. If you have a psychological trigger (ie. you smoke because you're stressed, or bored, or whatever), then you'll still need to conquer that feeling.
