    You should start by reading my comment on a similar question, found here. Our acupuncture to stop smoking section has auricular and body acupuncture points that are often used to help people quit. The most commonly used body point is the extra point, Tim Mee.

    Due to the complex nature of smoking addiction, however, many practitioners shy away from fixed protocols to some degree and take the people in as they come. This approach is similar to western medical doctors prescribing anti-depressent medications for people who want to stop instead of nicotine replacement pills. Addiction is a complex subject and the flexibility of acupuncture treatment protocols can be used well to meet the needs of people struggling with various addictions. A proper intake and TCM diagnosis is important in these cases.
