Acupuncture Helped Me Quit Smoking Without Gaining Weight
I started smoking as a teenager, and had been a smoker for 17 years when I went to see Dr. Robert of Acupuncture Associates. I had tried all of the usual methods to stop smoking—quitting ‘cold turkey’, weaning myself off of smoking with the nicotine patch, nicotine replacement gum—you name it. Nothing ever worked.
But as I planned a wedding with my fiancé, and as we dreamed of our new life and starting a family together, I knew that I didn’t want that life to include smoking. I still don’t know how he did it, but Dr. Robert helped me quit the smoking habit once and for all! You often hear about people gaining weight when they quit smoking (essentially replacing one habit with another), but that didn’t happen with Dr. Robert’s treatment. I didn’t gain any weight, and my wedding dress fit perfectly!
It’s been almost a full year since I’ve lit up a cigarette, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve got a wonderful new husband and a fantastic new smoke-free life thanks to acupuncture for smoking cessation. Now, to get started on that family….—T.M.
