Conventional quit-smoking treatments, including counseling and medication, can double or triple the chances that a smoker will quit successfully. Some people also try complementary health approaches to help them kick the smoking habit. Recently, there has been emerging interest in the use of complementary therapies such as hypnotherapy, yoga, or acupuncture to aid in smoking cessation
