There’s plenty of help out there to quit smoking. There are nicotine patches and vape sticks, but actually kicking that craving can be really, really tough.

You can try a CES device.

Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is a noninvasive treatment modality, which was cleared by FDA for treatment of a variety of symptoms including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and pain.

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) has been around for 30-odd years. Studies are out there showing that CES can be useful in helping people deal with everything from anxiety to depression to insomnia. More recently, it has been suggested that it can help deal with the cravings of an addiction. With regards to smoking, it is thought that they help take the anxiety regarding a craving away, thus making the craving more manageable.

CES has an excellent safety record. Published literature in the U.S. and abroad, reports virtually no negative side effects or major contraindications from its use. The National Research Council has deemed CES to be “a non-significant risk modality.” Because the only source of current for CES Ultra is a common nine-volt battery, its intensity is limited to 1.5 milliamps – what you would use to operate a small toy or penlight. Even the unit’s maximum intensity has been shown to be safe.
