For years, alternative medicine practitioners have used acupuncture and hypnosis to help smokers kick butts without drugs, and now there’s some new evidence backing up their effectiveness.

Researchers looked at 14 different international studies on quitting smoking.

Some studies showed smokers who used acupuncture were more than three times as likely to be tobacco-free six months to a year after quitting.

Across four trials of hypnosis, smokers had a higher success rate with the therapy compared to people who had minimal help.
