May 31, 2021 is World No Tobacco Day

The perfect time to “commit to quit”, the theme of this year’s World No Tobacco Day.

“World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) is observed around the world every year on 31 May. This yearly celebration informs the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, what the World Health Organization (WHO) is doing to fight against the use of tobacco, and what people around the world can do to claim their right to health and healthy living and to protect future generations.” – Wikipedia

For more resources, and to join the global commitment to break the habit, fill out the “Pledge to Quit” form. It may even inspire you to make your pledge stick!

Don’t doubt yourself – quit in 2020 – you CAN do it!

“Life’s vibrant hues are way too beautiful and precious to be distorted by the smoke of cigarettes.” – Anonymous

You know the health risks of smoking but that hasn’t stopped you. In fact, you’ve been thinking and even talking about quitting for years. Well don’t feel guilty. You’re definitely not alone. Nicotine is powerful stuff. Many people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good.

At Calgary Laserworks we use a low level laser (cold laser) instead of needles to target key energy points on the body. These points are found around the ears, nose, hand and wrist, and when stimulated endorphins – the body’s natural feel-good hormones – are released. This endorphin release has a calming, relaxing effect on the body which helps to reduce or eliminate nicotine cravings and the desire for cigarettes, as well as withdrawal symptoms.

In addition to stimulating an endorphin release, the laser stimulates the body’s natural ability to detoxify the nicotine, helping you through the nicotine withdrawal more quickly.

Low level laser treatments are a safe, non-invasive, pain-free, drug-free and highly effective solution that will help you quit smoking for good.
