According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the has ever faced, killing more than 7 million people a year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to secondhand smoke.”

We all know that smoking kills you, and secondhand smoke can kill our loved ones. We also know that even if smoking doesn’t kill us, it’s extremely harmful to our health and the health of our loved ones. Smoking and secondhand smoke is the leading cause for cancer, and heart disease, as well as a long laundry list of other harmful diseases and health ailments.

Yet, try as you might – you just cannot stop smoking.

You are not alone. Smoking is a bad habit and addictive. And like any other bad habit or addiction, it’s hard to just stop. Hypnotherapy can help you quit smoking and lead a healthier life.

 

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and heightened awareness. In 1955, hypnotherapy was officially recognized as a legitimate therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association. Since that time, hypnotherapy has become an accepted and celebrated component of traditional health treatment.

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy concentrates on understanding and changing the patterns of behaviour that make you crave cigarettes and nicotine. More and more frustrated smokers are turning to hypnotherapy to help them stop smoking once and for all.

Generally, smoking hypnotherapy will focus on three main ideas:

  • Smoking is harmful and poisons the body
  • You need your body to live
  • You should respect your body and protect it

 

Hypnosis Changes Neural Patterns

The only way to defeat a habit, fear or addiction is to rewire the brain and change the neural pathways which drive you to carry out addictive behaviours. Hypnosis directly affects the subconscious mind and changes your habitual patterns. Most smokers smoke out of habit rather than necessity (i.e. after a meal, on a break at work, or before bed).

Working with the unconscious part of the mind is the most effective method to do this, because the behaviour itself is unconscious. That is to say, you find yourself smoking before you’ve had a chance to stop it, and even when you know you are doing it – you still cannot stop yourself. Hypnotherapy will change the way you look at cigarettes and help you change your thinking patterns, which will help you quit smoking.

 

Hypnotherapy Reduces and Eliminates Cravings for Cigarettes

Unlike nicotine patches and other smoking secession medications, hypnotherapy successfully fights and eliminates patient’s tobacco cravings. No two people smoke for the same reasons. As such, hypnotherapy sessions are tailored according to the individual patient and their specific needs.

During a Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy session, your practitioner will identify the reasons why you want to smoke and use positive suggestions to reduce your cravings. You will also learn techniques to help you eliminate your cravings when you are at home, work, or any other place you would usually be tempted to smoke.
