The Nicotine Addiction
Depending on which stats you use, you will find nicotine/tobacco either 1st, 2nd or 3rd on the list of the most addictive substances or drugs to kick. The message here is that nicotine in the form of tobacco is one of the (if not the) most addictive substances on the planet, right along with heroin and crack cocaine.
How Nicotine Works on the Brain
Nicotine has the ability to mimic the actions of ordinary neurotransmitters and interfere with the operation of certain receptors in the brain, thereby inhibiting the production of vitally needed neurochemicals. If nicotine consumption is continued over time, the brain will become dependent on it to replace what it no longer can produce on its own. Regular smokers need to continually ingest nicotine just to maintain normal brain function.
Each inhale activates an endorphin rush which allows the smoker to relax, but this sensation wears off within the hour. It is at this time that the ill affects of the THOUSANDS of chemicals (HUNDREDS of which are toxic) go to work. That euphoric feeling is gone and the smoker is left only with the withdrawal symptoms. The easiest solution is to light up again and repeat the vicious cycle. As a smoker you are stuck in the nicotine trap.. by design. This keeps you dependent on the nicotine and locks you in as a lifetime client for the tobacco producers. It's an extremely tough habit to kick.
70% of smokers want to stop smoking. 18% try to quit yearly. Many try up to 5 times.
Laser Therapy Can Help You End The Addiction
At laserhealthservices.ca a certified laser technician will apply Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), otherwise known as a soft or cold laser, to release endorphins naturally, using your own body chemistry. Endorphins are released in our bodies during exercise, excitement, pain and sexual activity. They are our body's natural pain killers. They reduce the sensation of pain and help us to feel better emotionally.
Unlike smoking, this endorphin rush, rather than dissipating within the hour, will increase over the first 12 to 24 hours and dissipate very slowly over a period of weeks. As you are constantly receiving this rush of endorphins it minimizes (if not completely eliminates) the physical cravings and the need to smoke. This takes care of the physical addiction. In addition, we also coach you to help you with the psychological aspect of smoking and we include a program of natural supplements to deal with detoxification.
