3 Common Alternatives for Someone Who Smokes Cigarettes, Hobbs, New Mexico

Cigarette smoking is a hard habit to break, even for those who are well aware of its adverse effects on their health. If you or a loved one smokes, you should know there is a physical and mental aspect of cigarette addiction. The former is associated with nicotine, which is a highly addictive substance. The latter, meanwhile, is a combination of the routine, including a stick between your fingers, lighting up, puffing, and blowing smoke. You need to address both to break the habit. To get started, here are some of the common alternatives to smoking.

Top 3 Options for People Who Smoke Cigarettes

1. Nicotine Delivery Systems

Nicotine delivery systems (NDS) smokesare products providing the effects of nicotine without the harm of burning tobacco. These include nicotine patches, gums, and candies that are readily available in drugstores. A popular option for smokers trying to quit is NDS. However, they do not address the mental element of cigarette addiction, which is why a lot of people often revert to smoking.

2. Acupuncture

Acupuncture therapy is an excellent way to completely wean yourself from addiction in general. However, there are specific techniques applied for smoking. Some pressure points around the ear reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, while one called “Tim Mee,” which is located on the inside of your arm above the wrist can alter the way cigarette tastes to make it unappealing.

3. Hypnotherapy

Clinical hypnosis is often used to treat physical and psychological problems, including weight issues, speech disorders, and addiction. For smoking cessation, the patient is guided to unpleasant thoughts about smoking. For instance, the hypnotherapist might suggest that what the patient smokes smells or tastes is something repulsive.
