Stop Smoking Case History

Stop Smoking Case History: Hypnotherapy Quit Smoking Session

Have you been thinking about quitting smoking? But you’re a bit skeptical about the benefits of hypnosis?

I am not sure if you’ve ever wondered about what happens in sessions of hypnosis. So, let me tell you about a client and her experience during a session of hypnotherapy for stop smoking?

Here is a typical stop smoking case history – hypnotherapy session, a clients quit-smoking hypnosis experience.

Alice (not her real name) came to see me to stop smoking. She also had some concerns about putting on weight after quitting and wanted to use hypnosis to help retain her healthy shape and size.

Stop Smoking Case History - How Alice Quit Smoking with Hypnosis therapy

Alice is a slim 50 year old woman, with no children, living with her parents. She started smoking when she was 18 years old.

She told me how much trouble she got into when she first started smoking; “my parents were furious” she said. But that did not stop her from smoking. She also said: “at the age of 18 smoking made me feel more grown up and a bit of a rebel”.

But those rebellious feelings from back when she was a teenager, were no longer relevant.

Smoking now as an adult, seemed like a very bad idea. She now wanted to be healthy and smoke free.

Before I guided her into hypnosis, we worked out what was most important for her to reach her individual needs.

We started the hypnotic part of the session with her eyes open, until she was comfortable enough. So that when she closed her eyes she’d relax deeper.

Therapeutic language was used to help her remain a non-smoker who is calm and in control. After all, who better than her to be in control over the way she feels, thinks and responds in all situations.

I want to also mention here, that at the same time she was learning how to reproduce the hypnotic experience at home, as self-hypnosis.

Suggestions I gave her in hypnosis, were intended to help her maintain lasting changes. So that no matter where she was, who she was with or what she was doing, she would do so as a happy non-smoker.

Just as importantly, I want to clearly mention some further benefits. During this Stop Smoking Case History: Hypnotherapy and hypnosis session, suggestions were made to reduce her fear of putting on weight.

Again, therapeutic language was used to help her maintain her healthy shape and size. The goal was to eat healthy smaller meals. Also to be motivated to exercise regularly, to stay in shape.

During the session people often find time distortion is a big part of their experience. What seemed to have been a short time turns out to be a substantial amount of time. While the body was relaxing the mind was focused on using inner resources to make valuable changes.

At the end of the session Alice opened her eyes and said she felt very calm. As she was getting ready to leave my office she paused in the doorway. She then reached into her handbag, took out the remainder of her cigarettes and squashed them. With a big grin on her face she handed them to me to put in the bin.

Alice also booked another follow-up session to reinforce everything she accomplished today. She wanted to make sure she stayed healthy and cigarette free long term.

Happily, Alice has stayed in touch since her second session. She informs me that she is feeling absolutely great and smoke free. Also that she is enjoying saving money and regaining control of her health. She found an online cost calculator to estimate just how much money will save after quitting smoking.

Are you ready to join Alice in becoming a non smoker?

Stop Smoking Case History: Hypnotherapy and Cancer Council Advice on How quickly your body recovers after you quit smoking

Cancer Council health advice and my views align about Stop Smoking Case History: Hypnotherapy. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I totally agree as Cancer Council suggests, that you will feel much better and enjoy many health benefits after you quit smoking:

Twelve hours after stopping, almost all nicotine is out of your system. Together with most toxins and by-products being gone within five days.

  • After 24 hours, the level of carbon monoxide in your blood has dropped dramatically, meaning your body can take and use oxygen more efficiently.
  • After two days, your senses of taste and smell start to return.
  • After two months, blood flow to your hands and feet improves.
  • After one year, your risk of heart disease rapidly drops.
  • After 10 years, your risk of lung cancer is halved.
