Quit Smoking

  • Cold Turkey: An honorable approach, but very difficult for most people without some aid to relax cravings and withdrawal discomfort. –  Less than 5%
  • Cutting Down: The worst way to quit smoking. It trains the brain to believe smoking is more desirable and prolongs the painful process of quitting. – Less than 2%
  • The Patch: This is simply another way to ingest nicotine. The intention is to gradually reduce the dosage over time, but many people end up becoming addicted to the patch. The patch can cause several negative side effects such as, rashes, skin disease, vascular disease, insomnia, dizziness, and nausea. – Between 19% to 26%
  • The Gum: Similar-to the patch, however you must chew the gum up to 15 times daily for up to 6 months. But again, you will still be addicted to nicotine as well as the possibility of negative side effects such as nausea, constipation, severe angina pectoris and vasospastic disease. – Approximately 5%
  • Prescription Pills: Chantix, Zyban and Wellbutrin are the most common prescription medications currently used for smoking cessation. They are expensive and must be taken for several weeks. They come with the risk of serious possible side effects such as insomnia or sleep disturbance (trouble sleeping or vivid, unusual, or increased dreaming), seizures, hallucinations, dizziness, high blood pressure, dry mouth, constipation, gas, and vomiting, among others. Some patients have even reported depressed mood, agitation, changes in behavior, suicidal tendencies when attempting to quit smoking while taking prescription pills. – Approximately 27%
  • Hypnosis: An intriguing approach that unfortunately has yet to garner significant acceptance in the medical community. – Approximately 20%
  • Acupuncture: Attempts to rejuvenate the body’s flow of energy by stimulating meridian points along energy channels. This can help relieve cravings, among other affects. The concept is quite similar-to the principles of low-level laser therapy, but acupuncture is invasive to the body and can be painful for some people. Quitting using acupuncture usually requires many treatments over several months. – Approximately 50%
  • Counseling: Therapy helps, when done in small groups or individually, but must be done often, especially during the first two weeks. It is recommended you attend at least twice a week. This works best when combined with other methods, which is exactly what we offer at Safe Laser Therapy, LLC
  • Laser Therapy: Low-Level Laser Therapy is a high tech, non-invasive way to help eliminate the physical cravings of nicotine related addictions. This drug-free therapy can produce longer lasting results with fewer treatments and has no known side effects.
    • Most methods used today address only one aspect – i.e. addiction to nicotine.
    • Safe Laser Therapy‘s Stop Smoking Program is a multi-dimensional approach combining several techniques that help you quit smoking, relieve stress and prevent weight-gain and other negative affects due to quitting. – Between 85% to 90%
