Acupuncture is very helpful in the quitting process but you must really want to quit. I have found that if my patient isn't dedicated to quitting, it will not be effective. There are 2 ways to work with addictions: one is the NADA protocol which utilizes auricular acupuncture, and the other is with pure acupuncture treatments that address the reasons for your addiction. I work with the later (and some meditation) and have found that that approach is far more effective in helping someone quit for good.

How effective are acupressure slippers?

Honestly, I think they're a nice foot massage. There is only one acupuncture point on the bottom of the foot so these slippers likely activate foot reflexology points which is a different medicine. Additionally, they are not massaging specific points that will help you heal in any way. Every point we use is selected for a reason. To activate all of them simultaneously only confuses the body and can do more harm than good. Think of it like taking every over the counter medication at once to treat a headache. The aspirin may help, but the tums, NyQuil, and laxative certainly won't.
