DO YOU WANT TO STOP SMOKING?
Hypnotherapy is rapidly becoming the most effective and popular method of assisting people to stop smoking. Most smokers know on a conscious level that smoking is harmful and can be linked to many different health issues such as COPD, strokes and Cancer and that by stopping they will be healthier and wealthier.
Many smokers will realize that vaping, nicotine patches and chewing gum is just replacing one addiction with another. Some patients I have helped have told me how they removed the patches so they could smoke!
If you are thinking about Hypnotherapy to stop the first step is to make sure that you are actually doing it for yourself and not because family and friends are nagging you to. The nagging although well natured may trigger a certain rebellion in you…no one likes to be told what to do!
The second step is to come to terms with the fact that you are an addict; nicotine is just as addictive as cocaine (both are drugs). Once you accept this then you are ready to shake off the crazy monkey on your shoulder. This is the voice that encourages you to smoke, the voice that says you need a cigarette, you don’t need one, cigarette’s need you more than you need them!
The third step is to understand that smoking is not a normal thing to do! You weren’t born smoking it’s a habit that you started probably in your early teens because everyone else was doing it to look cool or grown up! Smoking is abnormal ,not to smoke is normal, I will qualify that…do you think it’s normal to inhale poisonous toxins in your body when you know they are poisonous? Would you eat food that was a week past it’s sell by date? No, you wouldn’t so why would you think it’s normal to smoke?
So you may be thinking “what does this person know about smokers?What gives him the right to call me abnormal?”. I used to smoke 40 cigarettes a day I was “abnormal” for years until I stopped with hypnosis!
HOW CAN HYPNOTHERAPY HELP?
Hypnotherapy works by putting you in a relaxed state where your mind is open to positive suggestions where then I look to change your thought process by making these affirmations such as you are now a non smoker and you will have no desire to smoke.
Smoking is also about habits that hypnotherapy will help you change. If you think about the habits attached to your smoking, eg after a meal, with a drink, talking on the phone, as a reward for completing a task or taking a break from your office or work place.
These habits need to stop…if you keep doing the same thing you will get the same results, change your mind to change your life!
HOW DOES HYPNOTHERAPY FOR SMOKING WORK?
As stated people are aware that smoking is bad for them so why aren’t they able to just stop? The root of the addiction is not with the conscious mind but with the subconscious.
The subconscious wants what is best for you and is open to change but will need instructing which can be done through hypnosis.
This is why hypnotherapy can be such an effective way of dealing with the addiction.
Hypnotherapy can help you stop smoking in the same way it can help you overcome any other challenges and obstacles in your life.
Hypnotherapy will bypass your conscious mind and speak directly to your subconscious and help to divert your attention away from the desire to smoke.
Once your subconscious has been made aware you are ready to change it will work around the clock even when you are asleep to carry out your wishes.
One patient of mine described how she felt following our session as being the difference between driving a manual and an automatic car, she felt she no longer had to change gears that something was doing it for her….that something was her subconscious mind!
HOW WILL YOU FEEL DURING HYPNOSIS
Relaxed, aware of your surroundings and in control. It can best be likened to the moment before you drift off to sleep.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL YOU NEED?
Just the one 2 hour session during which I will take a case history of your reasons for smoking and why you want to stop.
Then through hypnosis I will help you stop and make you normal again!
