Quit Smoking/Tobacco Testimonials 

Mr. Patel of Los Angeles tried with two acupuncture clinics in L.A. to quit smoking with no result. 

He quit at our clinic with just one treatment. In our 30 some years of practice, we never have so many coming to us to quit smoking from the recommendation of just one person, Mr. Hash Patel.

His recommendation has spread like wildfire.  In just a few years, the mouth to mouth spread has led to a few hundreds coming from all over the U.S.A. , with most of them, motel owners.      

 

My name is Hash Patel.  I am an actor/comedian in Los Angeles, California.  I have been a smoker for 15 years.  I had tried to quit successfully many times with the pills and patches.  It worked for a few days but nothing permanent.  I also went to a couple of  acupuncture places in Los Angeles that boasted I could quit with only a handful of treatments.   I quickly found out that was not true.  A friend of mine suggested going to Peking Acupuncture in Houston. . . . . I went, and after that ONE session, I had no urge to smoke,  I felt calm, never cranky with mood changes even in stressful situations.   The best part about the whole thing that smokers use as an excuse to not quit was, I didn't gain weight while quitting.  Dr. Ling does a special treatment in the quitting smoking part that keep you from wanting to replace the smoking with eating.  This has to be the easiest and best way to quit smoking without going through mood and weight changes.  I could never do cold turkey.  I have tried almost everything reasonable to quit none of them work.  Since then,  I have recommended a few of my friends to Dr. Ling's treatment and they said it was the easiest life style choice they have made.   

 

AUTO REPAIR SHOP SUCCESS STORY

Here is a story about someone coming to a auto repair shop jokingly said, that he could not stand the second-hand smoke in the office and would go somewhere for auto repair. This offensive second-hand cigarette smoke though jokingly expressed (to the auto shop owner) nevertheless carries with it that certain human behavior can be undesirable and can become offensive to certain people, creating a bad store image. The store manager was very sensitive and decided to take action right away. The result: The office of that auto repair shop as well as the home of the manager are all smoke free.

 

2 PACK A DAY LONGTIME SMOKER QUITS


Dr. Ling:

I would like to thank you for your help in changing my family's life. In November 2007, my husband of 35 years, a 2 pack a day smoker decided to quit smoking. He was managing an auto repair shop and one of his customers (a patient of yours) came to his shop for auto repair work. He told my husband how he had quit smoking through Acupuncture. He also told my husband jokingly that he was going to try and do business with only people that do not smoke because he just could no longer stand to be around the smell of cigarette smoke. My husband decided that day, for himself and the health of his employees and customers to try this treatment. He came to you on a cool November evening had one treatment and has not smoked a cigarette since. Our neighbor was so amazed by the results that she decided to give it a try and had the same amazing result. Four years ago at the advice of his wife and 3 year old son, our son went to you as well- same results. His wife and son are so happy to have him smoke free. With a new baby on the way - they are both happy to have a smoke free home.

Once again I just want to say thank you for changing our family's lives.

We have seldom if ever in our 30 years of practicing acupuncture met a smoker, who after quitting, treasure the benefit of quitting so much and with so keen interest to share the quitting benefit with so many of his close friends and relatives. 

 

I smoked for 35 years with 3 packs a day.  The heavy smoking I guess, may be the reason that eventually led to severe coughing.  The coughing was very frequent and sometimes, so severe that I almost pass out.  Because of the coughing, I felt the urgent need to quit but when the urge came, I could not do anything but to smoking and smoke, which I hated but what could I do.   I tried almost everything I knew, including the method offered by American Cancer society which gave me high hope, but that method could not even slow down my smoking habit.  Then a friend, a fire fighter, who quit through Dr.Ling's treatment for good told me about it.  I went to Dr. Ling for the treatment to quit smoking and to my surprise, I could walk out of his office and never since have the craving to smoke.  I strongly feel if I did not quit, I may not be living today, and for this, I have to say thank you Dr. Ling for my life.  I am bringing my grand daughter to quit smoking which led to my gratitude to write this testimonial letter.

PATIENT FROM INDIA SUCCESSFULLY QUIT SMOKING.

    
Hi..... My name is Robert and I foolishly started smoking at age 18 due to peer pressure.  I was not a "heavy" smoker by some  people's standard, but was hooked nonetheless.   I usually consumed between ten to fifteen cigarettes a day.  If I attended a party I exceeded a pack, but that was a rare occasion. 
When I came to the USA from India in 1983, I began to realize that I needed to quit this nasty habit.  I tried several times, once I even quit for a period of 2 years - but always went back.  I was disgusted at myself for being a slave to these little  pieces of rolled up paper, but at my wits end as to how to get out of the habit.   
One day at work, a co-worker was talking about how her husband, who smoked 3 pack a day, quit by doing acupuncture.  She was a 2 pack a day smoker herself and was thinking of following in her husband's footsteps.  I went over and told her that we could both do it together.  She got the information form her husband, and we made an appointment with Dr. Ling.
After the procedure, we both went to Luby's for a meal.  We ate and then looked at each other. She asked,  "Do you feel like smoking a cigarette?' I said "No." 
We were cured.  That was 1991 - We have been smoke-free ever since.  After many unsuccessful attempts at giving up cigarettes cold turkey, and suffering  withdrawal symptoms for weeks. Dr. Ling's acupuncture treatment made it easy to give it up.  I did not need any follow up treatment, and neither did my co-worker. 
I highly recommend Dr. Ling's acupuncture treatment, it's the best road to freedom from cigarettes. 
Forever grateful to Dr. Ling, 
Robert Nunes    


The previous testimonial letter along with this one indicate that many smokers quit smoking and later on, pick it up again, and with some, making the same mistake numerous times.  We at Peking Acupuncture render two services in quit smoking treatments.  One is the acupuncture treatment which smoker know of and come for. The other is the 20 minutes to half an hour counseling during the treatment.  To pick up smoking again after prolong quitting is at the very least a stupid mistake to make.  With the counseling service in addition,  smokers will not only quit, they quit forever.  That is the important reason why smokers from every state in the USA plus over ten some foreign countries do not mind to take the trouble to make long distance traveling  to come to us. From out of state and out of the country, the traveling distance to get to us is far, but the the long distance of traveling is being paid off by quitting forever.        

 

This is another smoker who quit for seven long years but went back smoking again.  Indeed, it is very easy for any smoker to quit and later on goes back smoking again, but not with those who quit through our treatment services. 
 

Dr. Ling:
I have been smoking for 15 years. At one time, I quit for 7yers but I was stupid enough to pick it up again. When I get hooked again, I find it harder to quit again. Lately, I heard from my friend who lives in Los Angeles, California about his going to Houston to quit smoking through Peking Acupuncture Clinic a few years ago.   I make a special trip to Houston from San Antonio, Texas, and I also find it easy to quit through your treatment.

This testimonial letter from Mr. McHam reveals that   mental readiness to quit, along with the desire for better health all contribute to higher success rate.    

I started smoking when I was in kindergartner, at which time, I had to steal cigarette from my mother's purse.  When I was 13 year old, I was already smoking a cartoon a week; already hooked so bad that my parents could no longer force me to quit.  When my father felt pretty bad about my being hooked with cigarette smoking, like father like son, he felt compelled to find something with which  he could help the son to quit smoking before the situation become impossible to control. Because he smoked, the son smoked too was often in his mind.  So, he was also thinking if he could quit, the son would also quit.   So he talked to me to make a joint commitment to quit together, and I agreed.    For a while, I thought we both were doing good, not until when I found out that he was hiding his cigarette smoking at work: He could not do it, and neither could I.  We all flunk the commitment.   At age 17, I had tried everything to quit but nothing worked, nothing had helped.  I was both a heavy smoker and a heavily addicted one, both of which I was fully aware of early on in my smoking history. I was also aware of the fact that there is little hope that I could quit, and there is neither any use to try, until when I was working in Cleveland, Texas when I met a friend, a pipe worker, who made it successfully to quit from Dr. Ling's quit smoking service. I also tried, and sure enough, my attempt to quit was also the same as did the one who told me,  not only did I quit successfully,  also easily.   But as I  had to work among so many smokers, the second-hand smoke got me back smoking again later on. I found out that each time I went back smoking, I smoked more and found myself harder to quit again, until I was coughing so badly from smoking that I  found myself hard to breathe at times.   The difficulty to breathe was also compounded with lower energy levels. I was in a situation that the more I felt I needed to quit the more my physical need to smoke. It made me pretty sick when I had to smoke one cigarette right after another: until in 1989,  I was smoking  5 packs a day. I felt then that my health was really going down hill.  I experienced even more of the difficulty to breathe.  With my health condition at the bottom, I finally woke up, deciding to quit forever.  As I was mentally more ready this time,  Dr. Ling's treatment helped me to get rid of the habit without any problem.   
After I quit, I also brought my wife, and later on, my father, and then my sister, all from Louisiana  to Dr. Ling to quit smoking.  The last one to date that I encouraged to try Dr. Ling to quit  smoking was a good friend who had to fly from  Shreveport, Louisiana to Houston to see Dr. Ling.  
Twenty years have passed since we all have quit smoking from  Dr. Ling's quit smoking service and we are still free from smoking.  Lately, I have another health issue for which I come to see Dr. Ling again.  When I told Dr. Ling who  I am and the benefits we all have got from his quit smoking treatment, I feel it may be a nice thing that I write this testimonial to express my thanks to him and to testify to all smokers how nice it can be to be free from smoking.      Signed: Bill McHam   
   
 

THIS ONE QUIT SMOKING  30 YEARS AGO:

Dear Dr. Ling:

To refresh your memory, I came to you to stop smoking in 1982, when you were in the International Trade Center, second floor, across the street from the AstroDome.  I had smoked since about age 18 and had gotten to a least 3 packs a day 29 year later.  A customer of mine told me about your service, so I thought I'd "give it a whirl".  It only took about 45 minutes of my time and $20.00 of my money to stop.  I've never ever wanted to smoke anything again.  I was so addicted that I even smoked small cigars inhaling every puff.

​I can never thank you enough because my physician says my lungs are as clear as they would be had I never smoked that first cigarette.

​Dixie L.

P.S. And, just think of all the MONEY I've saved!

 SURPRISED TO READ THIS ARTICLE IN A MAGAZINE



"The most exciting of all the good things that took place over the Houston weekend for Marcia and me personally had, however, nothing to do with dogs themselves.  Rather it was Marcia's visit to the Peking Acupuncture Clinic, which is located next to Astrodome (now at a new location) where the annual August  weekend of dog shows takes place.  All her life, until now, Marcia has been a heavy cigarette smoker, and during the last few months has been seriously wanting to give up the habit.  Marcia remembered how many of our friends and acquaintances have been successfully treated for their smoking habits by Dr. Tiong H. Ling and his wife Dr. Nancy T. Ling, Ph.D.  So, appointment was arranged to coincide with our stay in Houston, and on the morning of March 18, Marcia visited their office.  The results have been fantastic.  Marcia has neither craved or smoked a single cigarette since the treatment session.  We feel that something quite miraculous has happened.  Only disposable needled are used. Consultations are free, and the telephone number is (713) 661-0346.  This information is offered as a public service, especially for those who wish they could stop smoking but have not been successful on their own."

 FOUND OUR QUIT SMOKING SERVICES IN COLORADO.

Clients of mine (husband and wife) who live in Denver, Colorado used Dr. Ling's method of acupuncture to quit smoking.  I learned about Dr. Ling's technique through my son-in-law who works with this couple in Colorado.  I went to Dr. Ling from Round Top, Texas and I quit smoking.  Thereafter, my son who lives in Los Angeles, California also went to Dr. Ling to quit smoking in Christmas.  To Date, all of us are smoke-free!  Dr. Ling's acupuncture is highly recommended by me for cessation of smoking. 

​Barbaro, January, 2008



 A Smoker referred by a medical doctor to our clinic to quit smoking.  Dr. Handley, M.D.  started to refer smokers to us  over ten years ago.  Among medical doctors who refer patients to our clnic to  quit smoking, Dr. Handley has sent the most.  He always keeps our business cards at his office and he encourages all his patients to quit smoking .  We can say that he is running out of smoking patients as most of his patients have already quit.    


Dr. Ling, I just want to say thank you for your stop smoking treatment.  I was in there the 21st of November and was really skeptical of the treatment since I have had acupuncture before and it didn't work.  But so far so good.  I am impressed with your treatment.  I am sending a few of my friends to you after Christmas.  Thanks to Dr. Handley for recommending your treatment to me. May God Bless you and keep up the good work.

FROM SOMEONE WHO DROVE HOURS TO COME TO US

I am writing to express my thanks to you for all you've done for me and for my friends.  I visited you back in October, 1984 in order to quit smoking.  I had smoked 2-3 packs a day for 30 years, had tried to stop, but couldn't on my own.  I haven't touched another cigarette since my visit.  Your clinic was referred to me by friends and I have since sent 8 people to see you for smoking or weight-loss, all of whom have had great success.

I traveled from Louisiana to come to your clinic and am glad I made the trip.  It paid for itself the first month with the money I saved on cigarettes.

I wish you much success in the future.  Thank you again.
