I’ve tried the patch, Chantix, the gum, Zyban, nicotine vaporizers… you name it, I’ve tried it. I believe I was ready to give up what I considered to be a nuisance. With this treatment, I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical — but open to it. I went into it with the mindset that I was prepared to go cold turkey whether it worked or not– it was definitely time. I was pleasantly surprised that there was little physical withdrawal, as promised. It was, however, my responsibility to stay busy and recognize the little mind tricks that come about — they do happen. I believe the laser treatment provided me with the physical support I needed to make this big change happen. I will recommend this to people who know, in their heart, they are ready to do what is necessary to quit.
