pleasurable feeling, leaving the smoker addicted. The usage of this narcotic creates a roller coaster effect in your system that is very hard to break free from.

Once you are a habitual smoker, your mind and body develop a physical dependence for nicotine. Smoking excites your body's pleasure chemicals, endorphins, and puts them into high gear. This makes you feel very good - until your body summons you to replenish the depletion of nicotine in your system. So you smoke again, and again, and again. It is a vicious cycle that never stops until you quit smoking for good.

Laser therapy treatment works to stimulate the release of endorphins in a healthy way mimicking similar endorphin rush caused by nicotine. The laser helps to balance the body without harmful effects.

Dying for a smoke?

An estimated 46.5 million adults in the United States smoke cigarettes, regardless of its dangers. Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death. Nearly 70% of the more than 46.5 million American adults who smoke cigarettes want to quit, but few are able to quit permanently. According to the American Lung Association, an estimated 442,398 Americans die each year from diseases directly related to smoking. Smoking is responsible for heart disease and strokes that can leave you dead within seconds. If those facts do not scare you, there is always the possibility of emphysema or lung cancer, which will both ultimately accomplish death - only these diseases are extremely slow and quite painful.

Obvious Reasons to Quit

We are often judged by our physical appearance. Beyond the health battles smoking presents, there are several social challenges you will have to contend with:

Bad smelling breath, hair, and clothes

Yellow stains on teeth and fingers

Problem skin

Chronic cough/phlegm

Ashes scattered in car, home and office

Premature aging

Smoking limits where you dine and hinders your ability to taste and smell your food. It raises your medical insurance premiums. It will rob you of vitality, pleasure, and wastes your precious time.

Pregnancy and Smoking is Risky Business

The American Lung Association has warned that smoking during pregnancy can cause low birth weight, birth defects, and even Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. It also increases the risk of damage to your baby's immune system. Low-level laser therapy is not an option once you are pregnant so plan to quit prior to trying to conceive a child.

Avoiding Weight Gain

When you quit smoking, your metabolism slows down, because it is no longer fighting to force toxins out of your body. Do not compound your problem by replacing cigarettes with overeating. The laser therapy treatment will help increase your metabolism, so you're less likely to gain weight after treatment.


Though, you must watch your intake of food and only eat small portions at each mealtime. Frequent meals with smaller portions will work best to avoid weight gain upon quitting. At first not smoking may feel strange to your mind and body, so give your body a chance in become healthy again. In the meantime, there are things you should do to help avoid weight gain when you stop smoking:


Exercise

Follow a specific diet or nutritional plan. There are an abundance of education tools at your local library or bookstore to deal with weight issues. A regular exercise program is necessary to create a healthy body. Consult your physician or employ a licensed trainer to learn what program is best for you.


Alternative Smoking Cessation Treatments

Several studies have been conducted and are devoted to the success of smoking replacement therapies. These studies have concluded that low-level laser therapy has a higher success rate than all other smoking cessation methods on the market. Most methods used today address only one aspect of the addiction to nicotine. Here is a list of some of the methods and information about them.

The Patch: Can cause negative side effects such as, skin disease, vascular disease, insomnia, dizziness, nausea and at best only a rash.

The Gum: Similar to the patch however you must chew the gum up to 15 times daily for 6 months. Again you are still addicted to nicotine as well as the possibility of negative side effects such as, nicotine, nausea, constipation, severe angina pectoris and vasopastie disease.

Prescription Pills: Zyban is the most common pill used today. It must be taken for 12 weeks straight. However you risk serious possible side effects such as, seizure, insomnia, high blood pressure, dizziness, dry mouth and hallucination.

Hypnosis: This method has no scientific proof of working and its success rate is no different than the placebo effect.

Acupuncture: Stimulates energy meridians throughout body, which helps to relieve cravings. However, acupuncture is invasive to the body and can be painful. The treatment concept is quite similar to the principles of low-level laser therapy. Laser therapy is more effective, because light energy is absorbed by the body and takes much longer for the endorphin sensation to dissipate.

Counseling: Therapy helps, when done in small groups individually, but must be done often especially the first two weeks. It is recommended you attend at least twice a week. This works best when combined with other alternative methods.

After time, more and more nicotine is needed to achieve the same
