Medication alone does not help smokers quit, according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The study analyzed the efficacy of varenicline, bupropion, and nicotine replacement therapy.


A separate study, published in the British Journal of Pharmacology, points to one medication-free strategy that might help: exercise. The study found that when mice did moderate exercise, they experienced a reduction in nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

My mission is to provide a combination of methods based on the client's individual personality and needs. I strongly believe that in order for a client's situation to improve the therapist should be genuine and understanding. I believe that the answer to your problem is probably already inside you. I can provide insight for you to see it clearly and take steps to achieve your goal. Most people experience negative or irrational thought patterns at times that affect your emotions and behavior. I can help you identify these and replace them with realistic, positive ones.
