When the laser center called me after 3 months to ask me how I was doing, the first words out of my mouth were - "I am a non-smoker and I will never smoke a cigarette again"  This has worked for me!!!  I am a non-smoker, and I am so proud of myself.  I was a 2-3 pack a day smoker for 35 years.  For me, the great part about the laser treatment was it made quitting easy for me.  I have had no cravings only "thoughts" and they are less and  less.  I have now been a non-smoker for 4 months and I am so thankful that I did the treatment because I believe that without the treatment and help I received from the center I would never have quit and I was killing myself.  Thank you and my doctor thanks you!!!!!!!!!!   




I started smoking as a teenager in the late 1960’s.  My whole family smoked and it was logical that I would join the family “activity.”  By the time I was in my 20’s and 30’s, I no longer wanted to smoke, but I was highly addicted.  I had repeated bouts of bronchitis and was repeatedly warned to stop smoking by my doctor.  I saw both my parents become sick and finally die, from smoking-related ailments.  It still didn't stop me.  When I finally decided to quit, it was so difficult . . . I had heart palpitations from the patch, and the gum did nothing for me. I decided to try Cold Laser Therapy, as recommended by my doctor.  I had made up my mind to quit, and the cold laser helped me relax enough to do it. I don’t know how it really works, but I came out of the treatment not NEEDING to smoke.  I still wanted to smoke for the first few weeks, but found that if I kept my hands busy (I used a squishy ball) I was ok. I took it day by day and now I just passed the 6-month mark. I am happy I went for the treatment.
