ALTERNATIVE SMOKING CESSATION THERAPIES AND WHY THEY DON’T WORK VERY WELL

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
Is Nicotine replacement therapy a successful form of smoking cessation therapy? In short, No. NRT does not deal with the psychological side of quitting smoking, only the physiological side. Doctors are not trained to give you any counselling or guidance, they simply prescribe medication for you and you’re on your own to deal with the psychological side of quitting.

The other problem is that smokers prefer smoking cigarettes to other forms of nicotine administration, such as nicotine patches, gums, lozenges, e-cigarettes, inhalers and nasal sprays. Why? Smokers enjoy the sensory and tactile components of smoking, including the taste, smell, hand-mouth activity, and sensations in the respiratory tract.

Therapy that just replaces nicotine in a cigarette to another form of nicotine administration is ineffective.

The truth about nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is that it has a very low success rate, but the big drug manufacturers don’t want to tell you that. Even quitting cold turkey has a higher success rate than NRT.

What about drug therapy, such as Zyban and Champix?

There are certain real dangers and adverse side effects associated with the smoking cessation drugs Zyban and Champix. Zyban is the prescription drug Bupropion, also marketed as Wellbutrin. Champix is the drug Varenicline which is marketed in the U.S. as Chantix. Champix is the newest drug approved for smoking cessation and it seems to be more effective than Zyban.

The dangers of using drug therapy

The official Chantix website states that “Some patients have reported changes in behaviour, agitation, depressed mood, suicidal thoughts or actions when attempting to quit smoking while taking Chantix or after stopping Chantix.”

In 2008, the FDA issued a warning concerning “reports of suicidal thoughts and aggressive and erratic behaviour in patients who have taken Champix.” The number of severe negative reactions associated with Champix use was greater than all the 10-top selling brand name drugs together.

Zyban and Champix can have serious adverse side-effects on your health. If you’d like to avoid the risks associated with these drugs, we believe our 3-part drug-free smoking cessation therapy is the best alternative.

Do you want to quit smoking? Are you ready to stop smoking for good? If you answered yes to both questions, give us a call today 416-886-1000 to book your one hour treatment.

OUR 3-PART ONE HOUR LASER THERAPY FOR SMOKING CESSATION

PART 1: LASER THERAPY

How does laser therapy help with the physical addiction of quitting smoking?

Our laser is a cold laser, called low level light therapy (LLLT), its non-invasive, painless, has no side effects. It is completely safe. We target laser acupuncture points around your ears, nose, mouth, wrists, and hands. The laser helps to release endorphins, the feel-good chemical that you normally get when you puff on a cigarette. The laser helps balance these endorphins during the critical week that you are trying to quit, lessening the effects of cravings and other nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

What are some of the physical addiction symptoms of Quitting Smoking?

Craving for a cigarette
Sweating
Cramps and Nausea
Headache
Palpitation
Tingling in hands and feet
Cold like symptoms – sore throat, coughing
Dizziness
Insomnia
Fatigue

Nicotine is a very addictive drug, more so than alcohol or heroin. Withdrawal symptoms occur as soon as a few hours after the last cigarette, and peaking around day 3 to 5. Most physical cravings disappear after two weeks.

PART 2: GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING

How does our smoking cessation therapy deal with the mental side of quitting?

We believe this part of our program is critical in your success to become a non-smoker. Once a smoking habit is formed, people continue to smoke in response to triggers and in situations that become associated with smoking. Awareness, understanding, and preparation is the key to your success. Smokers don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan. We will prepare an in-depth Plan-of-Action that includes defining your goals, identifying your smoking patterns and triggers, and the steps to diffuse them will help you get past the critical first few weeks you are trying to quit. Reports have shown that if you can get by the first critical week without a single puff, you have a 9 times better chance of quitting for good.

“Dear Stop Smoking Clinic,
I was a closet smoker, smoking 1 to 3 packs a day. I was not able to function on a daily basis, smoking was affecting every area of my life. I felt that I was in a prison. After 3 days I was desperate and needed immediate help. I called the clinic and they were able to fit me in the same day. They saved my life. The therapist was the most pleasant, compassionate, and understanding. He was very professional, kind and attentive. I was able to phone him or text him any time of the day. He was always there to respond and listen to me. Many times he was there to calm me and reassure me, and encourage me. For me I don’t know where I would be without him and the Stop Smoking Clinic. I highly recommend anyone that is trying to quit smoking to call the Stop Smoking Clinic immediately. It really works. I am so grateful to the Stop Smoking Clinic. Thank you for giving me my freedom and my life back. P.S. I stopped smoking after the first treatment. I am now proud to say that I am a non-smoker and have regained my life back.”

Carolyn L. – Toronto

What are some of the emotional symptoms of Quitting Smoking?

Smokers experience a wide range of emotional issues when trying to quit smoking, some of these include:

Anger and mood swings
Irritability
Anxiety
Depression and Despair
Mental Confusion
Feeling of Paralysis
What are the psychological habits of quitting smoking?

Smoking habits are formed when neural receptors in your brain start associating and linking your daily activities to a cigarette.

The association of coffee and a cigarette in the morning is one good example of a neural association. Over time, these associations become very strong, making the quitting process difficult.

The physical withdrawal symptoms of nicotine are extremely difficult to overcome, but the psychological cravings can be even worse. Smoking triggers causes smokers to experience the cravings to want to light up again, even when the physical symptoms are gone. These include:

Pattern Triggers – eg. coffee and alcohol with cigarette, driving with cigarette.
Emotional Triggers – eg. stress, lonely, anxious, boredom.
Social Triggers – eg. Work breaks, seeing others smoke at get togethers, parties.
Withdrawal Triggers – eg. craving the smell of smoke.
PART 3: 24-HR SUPPORT

How does our 24-hour support help you quit smoking

We believe you have a much greater chance of success by quitting with us as compared to quitting alone. From our experience, the ability for you to easily contact us during the critical time of quitting greatly lessens the chance of relapsing. Smokers tell us that just knowing they have someone to rely on for support can help them overcome this addiction. For example, when smokers contact us, usually because of psychological cravings, we help by reminding them of the things to do to diffuse them, also reminding them the reasons why they are quitting in the first place, thus lessening the chance of relapsing.
