My thanks to Acupuncture Services of Central New York. I smoked cigarettes for 50 years before seeing Joyce Marley for her treatment. Over the years I have tried to quit smoking by using the nicotine patch, gum, rx nicotine inhaler, hypnotism, a timing device, and magnets for the ear. Eighteen years ago my mother, also a lifetime smoker, died of throat cancer. Although I was her primary care-giver, even that did not help me to quit smoking.
Then someone suggested acupuncture.
I called Joyce, got the details, and – No More Smoke! You must want to quit, and throw away any cigarettes you have left … I certainly was tempted at first, so it’s best not to have any cigarettes easily available. I used a lot of the scent, and drank a lot of the special tea that Joyce has available for you. And, by golly, it worked!!
After 50 years as a smoker, I have not smoked since my first acupuncture session in January 2010. I have no desire to “light up”. No more coughing. No more shortness of breath. No more smell of smoke in my house or on me and my clothes. Life is good. Acupuncture = new life for me. Thanks Joyce.
