Aversion Therapy

This is a form of Behavioural cigs-300x225Therapy which involves pairing unwanted behaviour with discomfort.  A person who wishes to stop smoking would be programmed to feel sick or a bad taste or foul smell or receive a mild electric, when ever they put a cigarette to their mouth. Once this unpleasant feeling is associated with their addiction the hope is that the unwanted behaviour or actions will begin to decrease or stop entirely.  In minor cases the person  may wear an elastic band around their wrist and whenever the unwanted behaviour presents itself they will snap the elastic band to create a slightly painful deterrent.
