Now it is time to let it go. Here's how...

According to the American Lung Association, there is a "three-link chain" of physical, social and mental components to smoking addiction. Smokers have a better chance of quitting and staying smokefree if they address all three parts of the chain:

  1. Physical: Cigarettes contain an addictive chemical called nicotine, that when inhaled causes the release of a chemical called dopamine in the brain and makes you feel good. Unfortunately, after the dopamine release depletes, these symptoms return which causes the smoker to crave another cigarette. Smokers also build up a tolerance and physical dependence on nicotine, meaning they have to smoke more to feel the same effect. USA Quit Smoking Auricular therapy may help with these symptoms. By stimulating some ear points with Low Level Laser Therapy it may stop or reduce the cycle of craving and withdrawal symptom as, irritability, anxiety, depression, obsession or lack of focus by resetting normal function of the body. 

  1. Mental: The act of smoking is often a part of one's daily routines. Smokers tend to light up at specific times of day—when drinking coffee or driving—or when they're feeling a certain way, like stressed or tired. Cigarettes can become a crutch, almost like a steady friend a smoker can rely on. Our professional Tobacco Treatment Specialist, at USA Quit Smoking will provide you with proven methods to quit smoking includes identifying these triggers, and relearning and adjusting behaviors through a quit plan.

  1. Social: Many smokers develop social groups around smoking—people will head out for a smoke break with friends or coworkers. Smoking can also be used as a social icebreaker by asking, "Got a light?" In that same vein, relying on social groups that support a quit smoking attempt can be helpful. In a recent survey, 80 percent of smokers reported that support from others, including friends, family, significant others and coworkers is very beneficial to successfully quitting. At USA Quit Smoking, you are welcome to bring another quitter with you and stop smoking together.
