Acupuncture also helps smokers quit. Acupuncturists utilize a unique technique where fine needles are inserted into a set of five acupuncture points on the ear to help curb withdrawal symptoms.
Acupuncture also instills a sense of calm when going through withdrawal symptoms and stops jitters, lessens irritability and restlessness. Plus, it helps in the detoxification process.
You may need frequent acupuncture sessions for the first week or two, reducing the number of sessions with time.
10. Ear Massage
Ear massage is another way to cope with cravings. The ears are considered the key area of the body to help with smoking cessation. When you massage the ears, it stimulates acupuncture points, which in turn reduces the urge to smoke. Giving yourself an ear massage for about two minutes daily will help reduce cravings.
These natural remedies will help you quit smoking. But, always remember that a strong mental constitution is the most important thing that will help break your habit.
After you have successfully quit smoking, it is important to repair the damage it caused in your body through proper diet, exercise, meditation and adequate sleep.
