About 16% of people in NSW (14% of women and 19% of men) are daily or occasional smokers according to the Centre for Epidemiology and Research. About one quarter of NSW school students say they have smoked tobacco at least once, 17% said that they had smoked in the past 12 months and 7% in the last 7 days, concluded the New South Wales School Students Health Behaviours Survey from 2008.
Northern Sydney had a 14% smoking rate, Eastern Sydney had an 11% smoking rate, Inner-West Sydney had a 10% smoking rate and 6% of people from Sydney North Shore smoked cigarettes. MT Druitt has the highest smoking rate in NSW and the third highest in the country, with a shocking 31.2 per cent of people addicted to cigarettes.

The treatment has been designed to reduce the physical symptoms of nicotine addiction and withdrawal (such as cravings) to enable people to quit smoking. The overall treatment time is approximately 30 minutes.
Our treatment is drug free and we do not use any quit smoking hypnosis or quit smoking hypnotherapy techniques.
There are many research articles available examining Acupuncture’s role in addiction and the potential for treatment to reduce and eliminate dependency.
Early research showed that Laser Acupuncture had a 71% success rate in a preliminary report conducted on heavy smoking patients. 
Laser acupoint stimulation does indeed modify the physical symptoms of withdrawal and makes it possible for motivated persons to succeed in overcoming habitual smoking of tobacco, concluded a double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized study. 
The most recent Cochrane Systematic Review (White 2014) states that for laser stimulation that the above study (Kerr 2008) is strongly positive at both short and long-term outcomes. 
This external research suggests that Laser Acupuncture treatments and protocols may provide beneficial outcomes however other papers did not have the same findings so the evidence is regarded as mixed. The AcuQuit treatment is unique and so treatment methods and results will vary from available research. We encourage patients to make an informed decision knowing that success cannot be guaranteed with our treatment.
