What makes it so hard to quit smoking? Studies have shown that nicotine stimulates the release of your body’s natural “feel good’ chemical called endorphins. When you stop smoking your endorphin levels temporarily decline and the body feels withdrawal. If you have ever tried to quit, you know the withdrawal period is the hardest part of quitting smoking. With cold laser smoking cessation treatment, low level laser is used to stimulate specific trigger points of the body to produce and release endorphins. The endorphins have a calming effect on the central nervous system and help to eliminate nicotine withdrawal and cravings, and can help the body get through the withdrawal period.
