About

Tobacco use is the number one killer of Americans today. Most current smokers have tried and failed to quit at least once. Smokers are addicted to the nicotine in tobacco products, and withdrawal from smoking can lead to physical symptoms such as irritability, anxiety, nervousness, depression and insomnia. This study will examine the effects of tobacco cessation counseling and chiropractic treatments on smokers who desire to quit.
