Acupuncture for quitting smoking


I have a relative who really wants to quit smoking. He has tried pretty much every option out there to help him quit. He is thinking about trying acupuncture, but he hates to spend the money on it if it doesn't really work. Does anyone have a success story?


I don't, then again I've never smoked. I know a couple of people who were going to try it. They never tried it though. How expensive is it? If he has tried everything else, sounds like he should just give it a try.


I have heard about using acupuncture for losing weight, curbing appetite, and increasing energy levels, but I can honestly say that I have never heard about acupuncture helping someone quite smoking. You could ask around at local Chinese medicine practitioners if it has been done before.
