Hypnosis to quit smoking

The very thought of quitting smoking is nerve-racking, isn’t it…

Read on… find out how you can stop smoking – stress free – with hypnotherapy.

Why hypnotherapy?

Because quitting by yourself is stressful and frustrating.

Yes, you’ve found yourself caught in a vicious cycle…

Part of you wants to quit.

but… another part of you makes you panic…

You know you are not alone…

…I used to be a smoker too, and I know exactly what you are going through.

Similarly, I’m sure you’ll readily agree when I say:  “it’s really hard to stop smoking”.

Or is it?

”Maybe it’s easier than you think. Hypnosis to stop smoking or vaping puts you back in control.

Prepare to break free from the bad habits, beliefs and thoughts that “run amok” in your mind about smoking?

If you are looking for a stress-free and natural way to stop smoking – then just like me, you will find quit smoking hypnosis is the easiest and quickest way to help you succeed.

Do you want to butt out that cigarette for good?

How many times have you stressed over stopping?

More times than you care to remember?

  • Have you made New Year resolutions? Were you wholeheartedly determined you’d stop smoking “this year”?
  • At some point you actually set a “quit date” on your calendar for “next month”.
  • Every time you coughed you made a promise to yourself; you are going to quit “tomorrow”.

Regretfully,  you’ve gone back on your word; again and again. 

Hypnosis to stop smoking in SydneyWell, you might as well ask yourself; if making all those resolutions and commitments wasn’t enough, what’s it going to take to butt out that cigarette for good?

Recently you turned to vaping, hoping it will help you stop. It didn’t, you are now addicted to vaping instead.

You’ve heard about hypnosis from a friend. It’s got you thinking; quit smoking or vaping with hypnosis… does it really work?

Because I used to be a smoker I know how frustrating it was to have cigarettes controlling me. And I also know hypnosis helped me to stop smoking permanently…

What’s the real difference between stop smoking failure and success?

Hypnosis is different from other attempts at quitting – like Nicotine Patches, Gum, eCigarettes, Vaping or cold turkey.

Why is it different?

Frequently its because hypnotherapy addresses both the physical, as well as emotional and psychological reasons of nicotine addiction.

And why do some people fail to stop smoking, while others succeed? 

The difference between failure and success comes down to this: “with hypnosis your desire and commitment for stop smoking becomes far greater than your fear of failure” ~

Does your failure to quit smoking affect you emotionally?

Repeated attempts and failures to quit smoking lead to problems such as; lack of self-control, 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.

Client comments and feedback:

Below are a few clients comments, about their success to stop smoking. They told me with help of hypnosis ‘it was so much easier’ to overcome their addiction to smoking. Easier than they thought it would be.

    • 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…”
    • Over the years I’ve tried to quit on my own, I tried patches and gum to no avail. As a last resort I made an appointment to see you for hypnosis. I wanted to let you know that I am a non-smoker now.
    • As I am now I’m in my late sixties I was more than keen to stop smoking. Hypnotherapy helped me forget about smoking.
    • I first heard about this therapy from a good friend who was struggling with a gambling addiction. He tried everything and this was his last option. Well it’s been 4 years and he still can’t go near any pokies. Then I recommended many friend for various problems to go and try hypnotherapy and all are happy. Finally today my wife completed her second session treatment and she’s stopped smoking. Not to mention all the health reasons for not smoking. The money spent on this treatment is worth it hundred times over. ~ Google review
    • Just wanted to let you know that your quit smoking session has worked wonders…  
    • I had hypnosis to help me quit smoking and drinking. Today is 2 years since I’ve had a cigarette. It’s been 16 months since I’ve had a drink and now I go to the gym 3 times a week. I’m the healthiest I’ve been since I was a teenager and I’ve lost 10kg. Since having hypnotherapy I’ve changed my life in ways I hadn’t even considered. ~ Google review

    Hypnotherapy for stop smoking is not just a theory, it produces lasting results for many people.

    Pregnant women have found that hypnosis is a safe and fast way to stop smoking for good, in early pregnancy.

    Quit smoking research

    Research into quit smoking by the American College of Chest Physicians indicates:

    1. “Hospitalised patients who smoke are more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnosis than patients using other smoking cessation methods.”
    2. “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.”

    Health issues associated with smoking

    Dirty ashtrayYou already know there are many health risks associated with smoking.

    Would you still smoke if you had a health scare?

    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.

    What will it take for you to decide to become a non-smoker?

    Are e-cigarettes and Vaping a health risk?

    E-cigarettes or Vaping is becoming widely popular as a replacement for cigarette smoking. With no unpleasant smell, users find e-cigarettes reduce the traditional stigma of smoking.

    Young people and adults mistakenly believe the vape cartridges, mixed with appealing fruit flavourings, are harmless. A Professor of Medicine at John Hopkins Hospital says that although vaping may not be as dangerous as smoking, it’s not a safe practice. Variety of e-cigarettes and vape “juices” contain nicotine, unidentified chemicals and addictive substances.

    Existing evidence indicates that e-cigarettes are not harmless products. Major concerns are being raised about safety of vaping and use of e-cigarettes.

    On 3 April 2017 National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) issued an updated statement on e-cigarettes.

    Researchers concluded that there’s insufficient evidence to support claims that e-cigarettes are safe.

    stop smoking

    It begs a question; are people given sufficient enough information about alternative ways to stop smoking?

    Alternative ways such as hypnosis, which does not involve nicotine replacement substances, vaping, e-cigarettes, nicotine patches and gum?

    Is it ever too late to stop smoking?

    It’s never too late to stop smoking. Especially if you already have a serious health condition.

    Are you afraid that because you’ve smoked all those years, you’ve already developed wheezing, coughing and other related symptoms?

    Do you say to yourself; “it’s probably too late to quit now”.

    Or “even if you quit now it won’t make much difference”.

    Don’t make excuses… as soon as you quit, your body starts to repair itself. You’ll notice improvements in your breathing and your sense of taste and smell will improve just a few days after stopping.

    Australian Hypnotherapists Association publish studies and research on smoking cessation. The results indicate hypnosis to be the most reliable method to quit smoking.

    What will it take to become a non-smoker?

    Well, you’re not just trying to see how long you can go without a cigarette? Of course not… you want to quit. And you want to quit for good this time!

    Then let me show you how. Individually structured hypnotherapy sessions can help you quit.

    During our sessions of hypnotherapy we will look at the reasons why you smoke in the first place. We will find ways to help you quit easily and permanently.

    • Firstly, it’s not only important to help you let go of the addiction to smoking, but to look at the many reasons why you’ve continued to smoke.
    • Secondly, we will assess if smoking/vaping has created misconceptions. Are you falsely convinced it’s a good way to relax or deal 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 for us to consider such as;

    • you say you love smoking or vaping
    • it’s the only thing you enjoy in life
    • worry about getting stressed and short tempered
    • fear that if you stop smoking you’ll 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.

    Wondering ‘what happens’ during a session of hypnosis for stop smoking?

    An excerpt from a typical case history of a stop-smoking hypnosis session with a client.

    Stop Smoking Case History…

    … Alice is a past client who stopped smoking for good.

    Her goal: to be healthy and smoke free.

    Suggestions were given, in hypnosis, to help her stop smoking. Mental rehearsal helped to reinforce: no matter where she is or what she is doing, she remains 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.

    Further suggestions were made to overcome her concerns about ‘putting on weight”. After quitting smoking she is reminded to eat healthy meals and to exercise to maintain a healthy shape and size.  

    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.

    In conclusion, when you stop smoking with hypnosis you are much more likely to be successful in quitting for good.

    There is no better time than today to start on the path to becoming a non-smoker.

    What is the cost of a packet of cigarettes?

    Cigarette prices in Australia are said to be the most expensive in the world. Currently, a packet of cigarettes costs between $35 and $40 (these prices hike-up every year). So, a pack a day smoker spends $245 to $280 or more per week on smokes.

    How much is a quit smoking program?

    The cost is $350 per single stop smoking session
    Alternatively the stop smoking “program” is $590 and includes 2 x sessions of hypnotherapy
    (less than a cost of a week or two worth of cigarettes)

    Here is the full list of fees for hypnotherapy sessions.

    How many sessions will I need?

    Usually 2 sessions are recommended. Hypnotherapy is a brief form of therapy, although sometimes few more sessions are needed to deal with other underlying emotions. 

    Go ahead, get in touch and commit to a session or two of hypnosis to help you quit. Its cheaper than the cost of all those packets of cigarettes. You know you are going to spend the money on smoking anyway! So why not spend the money on investing in your future health and wellbeing.

    Frequently asked questions:

    Do I swing a watch to put someone in a trance?

    Funnily enough, no. I don’t swing a watch to put you in a trance or make you do weird things. Forget about what you’ve seen on stage shows or Hollywood movies.

    Is Hypnosis Mind Control?

    Being in hypnosis is not mind control. Rest assured, being hypnotised is not being put under. That’s because hypnosis is a natural mind phenomena which connects you to your inner intelligence.

    Experience of a hypnotic trance is a calm, safe, state of mind. One that you naturally go in and out of daily. Trance is a deeper kind of inner absorption, mindfulness and concentration.

    How will you know if you were hypnotised?

    Simply put, when you are hypnotised you are not in some sort of a weird or foreign state. Even when you are hypnotised you are still aware of what’s being said to you. You are not asleep.

    When you are hypnotised you are relaxed and aware, yet more responsive to suggestions.

    What does hypnosis feel like?

    Majority of people say hypnosis and trance feel very familiar. That’s because you experience different states of hypnosis daily,  but you just don’t realise it.

    While you are in hypnosis your attention is so focused (think of driving a car) that distractions are temporarily blocked out or ignored.

    Does hypnotherapy really work?

    Hypnotherapy only works when you have a strong desire to make changes.

    For example; if you are keen to stop smoking or you are keen to stop gambling, than hypnotherapy can work for you. But it will not force you into becoming a non-smoker or non-gambler against your will.

    In other words, hypnotherapy really works, when you are committed to quitting those limiting beliefs, bad habits and compulsive behaviours.

    Situations when hypnotherapy does NOT work?

    If you are not ready or willing – hypnotherapy is not going to work. It doesn’t go against your will. You can’t be forced into hypnosis. Similarly you can’t be forced into doing anything you don’t want to do.

    This is why hypnosis is not an ideal choice for people who are “not committed” to it.

    For example; half hearted New Year Resolutions to quit smoking rarely work.

    Same as being talked into quitting by friends or family. Referral’s from a GP won’t produce desired results, if the patient is not ready to quit.

    When is hypnotherapy NOT recommended?

    Hypnotherapy is not recommended for patients who are suffering with hallucinations or psychotic symptoms and delusions. Similarly, hypnotherapy sessions are not suitable for people who are under the influence of narcotics, drugs or alcohol.

    Are hypnosis results quick and permanent?

    Its important to emphasise that hypnotherapy is the start and not the finish of an inner process. Keep in mind that hypnosis is not a magic wand. Positive results can happen quickly, although they don’t always happen overnight.

    Give yourself a chance!

    Recognise that positive behavioural changes and mental health improvements continue, for quite some time. Even long after the sessions are done.

    Stop the nicotine addiction fast!

    That’s right, NO more money down the drain.
    And NO more feeding the nicotine addiction.

    Forget about cigarettes, smoking or vaping.

    Compulsive smoking affects you financially and physicaly.

    You’ve been there, done that. Now you’re over it.

    You are not stuck. Your are just committed to certain habits and patterns of behaviour. Because it helped you in the past. Now the behaviour is more harmful than helpful. The reason you can’t move forward is because you keep applying the same old formula to a new level of your life. Change the formula to get a different result. ~ Emily Maroutian
