You can stop smoking with hypnosis, let me show you how
Are you one of many people who have stopped smoking either cold turkey or with nicotine patches, but then they took it up again – and unfortunately finished back right where they started, feeling deflated and weak-willed. It felt like they lost control of their will power, smoking and cigarettes were controlling them.
How many times have you tried to quit smoking?
Only to take it up again…
You know you are not alone…
…I used to be a smoker too. I know exactly what you are going through.
Trying to quit smoking is a frustrating reality for many people, who get caught up in a vicious cycle – they stop smoking and eventually go back to it, again and again.
Well, you might as well ask; if making resolutions or commitments isn’t enough, what’s it going to take to butt out that cigarette for good?
How do you break free from the bad habits, beliefs and thoughts that run amok in your mind about stop smoking?
I think you’ll readily agree with me when I say: “it’s really hard to stop smoking”.
…Or is it?
Maybe it’s easier than you think.
Hypnosis for stop smoking puts you back in control…
Because I used to be a smoker I know how frustrating if felt to have cigarettes controlling me. And this is how I used hypnosis to stop smoking permanently
Research into quit smoking by American College of Chest Physicians indicates:
- “Hospitalised patients who smoke may be more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnosis than patients using other smoking cessation methods.”
- “Smoking patients who participated in one hypnotherapy session were more likely to be non-smokers at 6 months compared with patients using nicotine replacement therapy alone or patients who quit “cold turkey.”
Do you really want to become a non-smoker? Not just trying to see how long you can go without a cigarette? Then let me show you how individually structured hypnotherapy sessions can help you quit.
It’s got you thinking; Stop Smoking hypnosis… does it really work?
And why do some people fail while others succeed? you ask.
Are you keen to find out the real difference between stop smoking failure and success?
The difference between failure and success comes down to this:
“with hypnosis your desire and commitment for success becomes far greater than your fear of failure” ~ Katherine Ferris
Does failure to stop smoking affect you emotionally?
Those repeated attempts and failures to stop smoking frequently lead to problems such as; low self-esteem and low self-confidence.
There’s a lot more at stake here than just smoking itself. Every time you fail, you reinforce that failure.
Subsequently, you end up feeling even worse than before. Your trust in your own ability and your self worth is eroded.
Recent stop smoking article in Science Daily reported that ‘many people’ Continue to Smoke even after being Diagnosed with Cancer. This causes me a great deal of concern.
It begs a question; are people given sufficient enough information about alternative ways to stop smoking? Alternatives such as hypnosis, which do not involve nicotine patches and gum?
Quit smoking client comments and feedback:
Many times I’ve spoken with my clients after they stopped smoking and they’ve told me that ‘it was so much easier’ to quit than they originally thought.
- One woman recently said: “she felt like she had not even smoked before”.
- Another said: “since my sessions of hypnosis to quit smoking, I have not been tempted to have a cigarette, even though I’ve been around smokers…”
That is very reassuring to me.
It is reassuring to know that Hypnotherapy for stop smoking is not just a theory, but that in reality it produces lasting results for many people.
It is never too late to stop smoking, even for those that have lung cancer. Research supports hypnosis as a beneficial method to help people become non-smokers.
- Firstly, it’s not only important to help you let go of the bad habit of smoking, but to also look at the many reasons why you’ve continued to smoke.
- Secondly, has smoking become a way of relaxing or dealing with boredom or anxiety?
- Thirdly, is it a reward when you accomplish something or an escape when things get stressful?
There may be other factors to consider such as; that you say you love smoking; or the fear that if you stop smoking you’ll start to eat more and gain weight.
If that’s the case then we need to help you find other, more positive ways of meeting those needs, so that you don’t return to smoking or start eating unhealthy.
Do you wonder ‘what happens’ during a session of hypnotherapy for stop smoking?
Here is an excerpt from a typical case history of a stop-smoking hypnosis session with a client, Alice S. (read full story here).
Stop Smoking Case History…
… Alice was a past client who stopped smoking for good.
Her goal: she wanted to be healthy and smoke free.
During the session suggestions were given in hypnosis to help her make lasting changes, so no matter where she was, who she was with or what she was doing, she would remain a happy 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.
Further suggestions were made (to overcome her concerns about putting on weight after quitting smoking) to help her maintain a healthy shape and size, to eat healthy and to be motivated to exercise to stay in shape.
At the end of her session Alice opened her eyes and said she felt very relaxed. When she was ready to leave my office she paused, 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 session to reinforce everything, to make sure she stays a non-smoker long term.
Are you ready to join Alice in becoming a non smoker? When you are ready feel free to call me to discuss your stop smoking goals.
