There are currently 10 million smokers in the U.K. roughly 6% of the population. On average 100,000 smokers will die each year from smoking related causes. With cigarettes retailing at nearly £8.00 a packet, and a widespread ban on smoking in public places, there has never been a better reason to give up smoking for good.
In one study conducted at the University of Oslo, Norway, acupuncture was found to significantly reduce the desire to smoke for up to five years after the initial treatment. Acupuncture treatment can help with the cravings and feelings of irritability, as well as aiding relaxation and detoxification. Ear Acupuncture points are commonly used as part of this treatment, and the patient will initially need to attend twice a week.
