Smokers having trouble kicking the habit may want to try acupuncture.

A new study in the American Journal of Medicine indicates acupuncture and hypnosis could help smokers quit.

Researchers say acupuncture tripled the success rate for people trying to stop smoking.

Scientists also say smokers who utilized hypnosis had a higher success rate at quitting than those who did not undergo hypnosis.

The information was gathered from more than a dozen international studies on the topic.
