Stop Smoking With Hypnotherapy
With the smoking ban firmly in place and plans for the government to remove cigarettes from display, now could be the time to think about giving up smoking. Trying to quit a smoking addiction is no easy task and there are plenty of nicotine patches, gums and inhalers available to ease the process. And during the last few years, lots of smoking cessation programs have been set up to give you advice on how to stop smoking. However, many of these programs ignore the most important factor to giving up cigarettes and that’s the desire to quit.
Hypnotherapy has become one of the most popular and effective ways to stop smoking because it targets the one area where our desire to do something resides – the subconscious. Hypnosis has the techniques to help you quit smoking and overcome your addiction to nicotine. Once you’ve given up, you’ll start to lead a healthier and stress-free life.
Visiting a hypnotherapist can help you stop smoking
There is a big difference between stopping smoking and becoming a non-smoker. Giving up nicotine, and resisting the temptation to smoke again, takes a courageous effort, but saying you’re a non-smoker means there’s nothing worse than the thought of a cigarette or cigar. People who have stop smoking will often continue to complain about missing a cigarette with a drink or after a meal. They have stopped smoking only at a conscious level and potentially still have the desire to smoke again.
Hypnosis can help you identify and understand the desire to smoke and overcome it. To do so, you will first have to want to give up smoking. By reading this article or researching ways to stop smoking you have already started to think about giving up. A hypnotherapist can’t help someone who continues to want to smoke as hypnosis can’t make you do anything unless you want to. First consider your reasons for wanting to give up smoking as the wrong reasons can result in failure. If it’s just convenient for you to quit smoking i.e. your partner is giving up and they want you to do it with them, then you have not examined your own reasons properly and probably still desire to smoke. You can also potentially harm their progress by tempting them to have a cigarette again.
Perhaps you want to improve your health or remove the health risks associated with smoking. Maybe you want to save the money you spend on cigarettes for more positive things. You may be one of many who are now fed up with the feeling of social rejection from smoking, particularly with the public smoking ban in place. Whatever your reasons, they must be your own. If you have a partner and both have good reasons for quitting smoking then seeing a hypnotherapist for hypnotherapy sessions can take place in pairs.
