    So far so good!!! December 30, 2014 was the day I met Kelly @ Alpha Lifestyle, it was also the last time I had a cigarette. I am making the choice everyday to not have a cigarette & laser therapy has helped tremendously. Literally I have had no irritability & no real cravings. I do think about it occasionally but I’m sure, since I liked to smoke, that I will think about it for a long time. I just choose not to act on those thoughts & focus my mind elsewhere.

    I think I have successfully quit smoking 6 times now, and I’ve tried all the methods. Alpha’s laser treatment was by far the easiest for me. Alpha helped me quit 3 years ago. The treatment made me feel like I didn’t need to smoke anymore. I actually remember being almost freaked out, like “why don’t I want to smoke right now?” I was very happy with the results.
    As things sometimes go with compulsive smokers, when my life got stressful a couple years later I started smoking again. When my stress died down and I knew it was time to quit, there was no question in my mind how I would go about it this time. I’m happy to tell you that the second time was easier than the first. I suppose it’s because I already had so much confidence that it would work.
    I’ve recommended Alpha’s laser treatment to quite a few people, even though I always feel a bit silly when I do because most people have never heard of it before. When you try to explain to people that “All she has to do is touch you with the laser a few times on your head and arms.”, and “No, it doesn’t hurt.”, and that the treatment part only takes about 20 min; people can tend to be skeptical because it seems too easy. All I can say is that it really works for me. I would never try any other method.

    On July 01, 2014, it was my ONE YEAR NON-SMOKING ANNIVERSARY!! Thanks to Alpha Lifestyle Center. I could not believe how absolutely easy it was but I made sure I followed everything they told me to do….AND NOT DO!
    I am 52 years old, quit several times during my 30+ years of smoking and always returned. NEVER AGAIN!
    When I walked out on July 01, 2013, I felt as if I had never smoked in my life and I still don’t want anything to do with it. I never even had to go in for my Booster treatment!
    Thank You for giving me a new, healthy chance in my life!

    Just an Update… 1 year, 2 months and 15 days ago, I quit smoking and never looked back! Thanks Kelly!!!

  6. Rachel Pisarski says:

    After years of trying, this is absolutely the best treatment to quit smoking. Kelly is so committed to the success of her clients, that she goes above and beyond. My mother who smoked 3 packs of cigarettes a day for 25 years has been smoke free for 15 yrs with this treatment. I myself have tried all other options and laser therapy is the only one I have been successful with. With the therapy and guidance support provided at Alpha anyone can be successful as long as they actually want to quit.

  7. Kim Lewis-Hengy says:

    I would like to say that I had tried everything to quit smoking and none of it worked…until I tried Alpha Life 4 years ago. On October 19th, 2009, I quit smoking with the help of Alphalife. I have been a non-smoker for 4 years because of them. I have had cravings and thoughts of smoking, but it would come into my mind one minute and then leave my mind the next. But the best part of this is that I felt much better health wise and self-esteem wise. I am able to exercise without difficulty in breathing, my skin looks better, I have much more energy, and I just feel better about life itself. It took very little time for this procedure and there were no after effects either. I would recommend this to anyone that wanted to quit smoking…it really works.!!

  8. Mick Fetter says:

    March 2009 I came in and have not had 1 cigarette since! Thanks Kelly. I tried the patch, the gum and cold turkey to no avail, This treatment works! I have recommended countless people to Kelly over the years. This treatment makes quitting easy! If you have a desire to successfully quit smoking, call Kelly. I walked out of her office and the cravings were gone. I went back for a booster after 6 months (highly recommended) and I’ve been breathing easier ever since. Good luck and I hope this treatment works as well for you as it did for me.

    Had the laser for smoking on Dec 31, 2013
    It will be a month on the 28th not 1 cig,
    Thanks Kelly I already refererred 2 people 2 U

  10. Marcy Singer says:

    Wow, I’m feeling great. I really don’t have any desire to pick up a cigg and smoke it. I smoked for 30 years and tryed to give it up over seven times. But after 3 months I would be going nuts wanting to smoke. Well, It’s been over 3 months and there is no way I’m going back, I have come to far now. I don’t even crave it. But it is nice to know if I do need a booster, It is there.
    Thanks Alpha LIfe

  11. Sherry Osborne says:

    Yesterday was 3 months and 1 day since I became a Non-Smoker. Best thing I ever did for myself! I started smoking when I was 14 yrs old, I have smoked for 40+ yrs. I heard about this treatment from another “heavy smoker” friend who quit with Kellys help. One of my friends went with me so we could offer each other encouragement. On the way to see Kelly for this treatment, we each probably smoked almost a whole pack. Of course we were nervous! Scared! Giving up something we both loved to do! But, its the best decision we both have ever made. Yes, there are times every single day, I want a cigarette. But, not enough to have one. I have been around my friends that smoke, and have not even once wanted to “hit their cigarette” Every time before when I tried to quit smoking, I had awful headaches, and boy was I ever mean! One time, I was so mean, my husband (who has never ever smoked) went and bought a pack for me. This time, with Kellys help, I had no such withdrawals. I have felt great! Kelly offers a “refresher” if you feel the need to smoke, but I have not needed to do that at all. Neither has my friend that went with me. She was also a heavy smoker like I was. This week, 3 more of our friends went for the treatment. So far, so good! If you are on the fence about doing this, I whole-heartedly say Go For It!! You will be so happy you did. The treatment itself is non-invasive. You don’t feel anything. Kelly talks you thru the whole thing, gives you pointers and ideas to stay on track. I am SO happy I heard about this! SO happy to have done this! Now I am proud of myself: a Non Smoker! Thank You Kelly !!!!! Could not have done it without you! Huge Hug! Sherry

    I received the laser therapy 6 weeks ago. I was a pack a day smoker for 25 years and really enjoyed my cigarettes but knowing the bad effects to my health and the cost I had to stop this horrible habit. I have no terrible withdraws and I can actually breath better and the energy I have is like when I was in my 20’s. I am so glad Kelly was hear for me. I would definately recommend laser therapy. You have nothing to loose and a lifetime of healthy living to gain!!! Thanks a million Kelly you changed my life!

  13. Lisa says:

    Dear Kelly, I can’t thank you enough for offering this amazing Laser treatment. I have been a smoker for 35+ years and when I first heard about your treatment, I was skeptical. After only two months, I know I am now a permanent ex-smoker! It is unbelievable the freedom I feel having my life back. I will recommend you to all my family and friends so they too can break the hold cigarettes have over them.

  14. Judy VanOverbeke says:

    I just wanted to drop you a line to say THANK YOU! I came in your office on 1/11/12 and was very skeptical on how your program would make me quit smoking. I came with my friend who received a gift certificate for Christmas and decided I would give it a try too. I am a 52 year old woman who smoked for 35 years [never quit before] and was in fear of health issues if I didn’t give up cigarettes.

    I spent the $300 and thought that it was cheaper than continuing to smoke.

    The good news is “I MADE IT ONE FULL YEAR”! My family took me out to dinner on my 1 year anniversary and told me how proud they are of me. Talk about proud! I was strong and stayed away from the Igor’s and here I am to tell you my great story. I have told many people that it was ALPHA that helped me because I would never had made it without your help. I hope Alpha continues to help people and they overcome the terrible habit of smoking so they can live a long and healthy lifestyle. I am loving being a non-smoker! No more standing outside in the cold and rain.

    Hello and Greetings Kelly,
    Yes, your message does find me smoke free. I have to tell you that I was very amazed at that lack of withdraw symtoms that I had as a result of the laser theropy. I have not smoked since before my appointment. I must tell you though, that because I have studied my substance abuse in depth, that I had a head start on how the brain/mind would tell me that I wanted to continue the Habbits. Although there was no physical symptoms, my mind quickly told me I wanted a smoke as I exited the car. The rubber band to the wrist was very helpful. Also, the suppliments and recommendations were also very helpful. I am extremely grateful and am telling everyone about my experience. As I get more and more time, I will continue to let people know that there is an answer to smoking as enthusiastically as I tell addicts about the AA and NA program. In the respective programs, IGOR is also known as the Ego. In order to get over our addictions we too must get over our ego and become less of a mind and more of a heart. Thank you for the treatment and I hope to report back soon my progress.

    Best Regards,

    This February it will be my 11yr anniversary of the 2nd best decision I ever made. Thank you for helping me quit smoking, my wife also went and for 4.5 years it worked for her and then she fell back into it, but she will be trying again soon, and hopefully it will do the same for her as it did for me!

  17. Tony Coury says:

    I was a pack a day smoker for more than 20 years when I first visited Alpha Life Style in Windsor, Ontario back in 2001 (The treatment was not available in the States back then). They called me in early because of a cancellation, and I had just bought a carton of cigarettes which were sitting on my car seat when I went in. Well, after the treatment, I thought that I had just wasted a bunch of money, but I have never felt the urge to smoke again, and subsequently threw out that carton. It is now going on 12 years since I quit, and I would recommend this to anyone who actually wants to quit smoking!

  18. Doris Hamilton says:

    I am proud to say, it has been 1 year + 3 months of SMOKE FREE living! I smoked a pack a day for over 20 years and to be free of that addition without withdrawals is amazing. It was truely the best decision and investment in myself that I have ever made.
    My best friend and I both had the treatment, and she remains smoke free as well.

    If you want to change your life and live longer get the treament, you will not be sorry.

  19. Rhonda Wicks says:

    I am proud to say I am a NON-SMOKER! After 30 years of smoking 1 1/2 packs a day, I finally quit with the help of Kelly and Alpha Life Styles.

    After Smoking a cigarette on Friday, March 30th, 2012 at 12:50pm, I walked into Alpha Life Styles located in Birmingham, Michigan for treatment and have never touched one since.

    So much of my life has revolved around a cigarette and now my life revolves around me. This truly works and could be the best investment you will ever make towards your health and your bank account. It has been 11 weeks and I feel GREAT. I am so GREATFUL that I met Kelly and Alpha Life Styles as they have changed my life forever!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Sara says:

    After 20+ years of smoking, trying lots of different ways to quit, this one worked! After my 1/2 hour treatment I got into my car and saw my pack of cigarettes on the passenger seat…but just wasn’t ‘connected’ to them. I felt like I was not a person that quit smoking… I was a non-smoker. After 2 weeks little by little the urges poked it’s nasty head back into my life, but I waited it out (a couple of minutes) and it was gone. Never returned for booster – been ‘non-smoker’ since 1997. Best money I ever spent (which my employer paid for) – thank you so much!!

  21. Sarah says:

    1 month and 7 days ! I’m really done this time. I cannot believe after all the years of smoking and all the failed attempts at quitting I am finally rid of it. It’s amazing how much easier it gets each day. I’m not going to pretend it was easy at the beginning tho! Had I not gone to Alpha I would have never made it thru the first 10 days or so. It does get better tho. I never made it this far without a cigarette to know that until now. I still have my rubber band on, not because I need it, but just as a reminder of my success!
    It’s so nice not to have to stop for smokes on my way everywhere!
    Thanks Kelly!!!!

  22. Carolyn Donoghue says:

    It will be a 2 year anniversary for my significant other and I on March 18th. We both started smoking in our teens and continued for 50 some years. We still can’t believe it was so easy to be smoke free after the laser treatment. We still miss the act of smoking but have no desire to do it. It is truly amazing. We can sit by others who are smoking and have no desire to take a drag. Thank you. It really works.

  23. Tom H says:

    I was going through 1 can per day of smokeless tobacco for 8+ years and quit cold turkey after doing the laser treatment. It has been almost 4 months and I hardly ever think about it anymore. It was WAAYY easier than I ever thought it would be. Thanks!

  24. Debbie Rundquist says:

    I quit smoking with the help of Alpha in mid-March. I really wasn’t ready to quit this time, but went with a friend because she really wanted to quit. I smoked at least 2 packs a day, sometimes for for close to 40 years, I was coughing and wheezing when laying down and found it hard to get a good nights sleep. I also was afraid of developing cancer as I already had permanent damage to my lungs. I am happy to say I am smoke free almost 6 mths now and have never felt better. This therapy works…I never even reached for a cigarette and I don’t get it, but it worked none the less with very little cravings. The only discomfort was the first 3-4 days of physical withdrawal.
    Thanks to Kelly and Alpha Laser Center for changing my life. I have never felt better and hope I live a long and healthy life. THANKS AGAIN!!!!!

  25. Brian Batdorff says:

    I am about a week away from 4 months with no smokes!! I was a true smoker and loved each and every one, now my life is smoke free! I used Chantix paired up with Alpha Life, and I haven’t even thought about burning again. Thanks Kelly you ROCK~!!

  26. Dennis Biro says:

    I came to Alpha Life Style in Windsor, Canada on Oct 30,1998 for your Cigarette Cessation (laser therapy). As of that time, laser therapy was not approved in the U.S. I remember having a cigarette and put it out in the ashtay outside the door before into your building. It was just after 9:00 am. I still have the parking stub stamped “FRI Oct 98 9:07 am”. After smoking 30 years and smoking more packs per day as the years went by I was smoking over 4 packs of cigarettes a day!

    Thanks to your Smoking Cessation, I have not smoked in over 11 years. I worked for a major auto company and have recommended Alpha Life Style to hundreds of people. I know several that have also went to Alpha Life Style after seeing how well it worked for me and others and are now also smoke-free.

    For me, after 2-3 weeks I stopped coughing while trying to complete a sentence while having a conversation. I stopped wheezing while breathing at night time when going to sleep. Food started to taste better and I could actually smell how bad smokers really smelt from smoking. Over all it was good for my health. It was good on my wallet also… after saving for 5 years what I would have spent on cigarettes, I was able to pay cash for a new car. And have since been able to purchase another.

    Thanks for helping me stop smoking and being healthier.
    This was one of the best choices I have made in my life.

    Now, I’m living the Alpha Life Style!

  27. Kathleen O'Connell says:

    I smoked my last cigarette while walking from the parking lot into the treatment center…and have not had one since. That was in 1998. I had tried to quit many times before that, but the longest it would stick is about a year, then something would set me off. Even going through chemo for breast cancer, I couldn’t set those cigarettes down. This treatment is painless and makes the withdrawal period a LOT less stressful. I have and would recommend it to anybody who truly wants to quit.

  28. John W. Sharp says:

    I never thought it would work! Two years AFTER my heart attack I threw away my cigarettes and lighter in Windsor as there were no treatment centers in Michigan at that time. That was TWELVE years ago this past June. I have not had one cigarette in that time. I saved the money I would have spent on them and have enjoyed the health and money rewards ever since.

    Thank you for being there for me when I needed it.
    IT WORKED!!!

  29. Cathy says:

    I had tried everything to quit smoking (gum, patch, chantix etc.) but this was the easiest and best way to quit. It has been several weeks since I quit and I love it!!! I didn’t realize how bad I smelt! I have been recommending Laser to everyone, Thank you!!!

  30. Gale Parylak says:

    It’s been 6 weeks now (since 3/29/09) since my laser treatment and I have been absolutely, 100% nicotine-free! I previously tried the patch, the pill, gum and even cold turkey and was unsuccessful, always feeling like a failure. This time, there were no withdrawl symptoms or nicotine cravings, making it easier to concentrate on the behavioral changes necessary to be successful. After 35 years of smoking, I can finally say I am smoke-free and finally have the freedom from addiction. The last time I coughed, was the last time I smoked!! Thanks to Alpha for assisting me in achieving my new life style and my new life – period!!!
