Hypnotherapy is a positive way to stop smoking.
Why does everyone talk about hypnosis as the main tool to stop smoking and how does that affect you?
Stopping smoking could be much easier than you think.
What to Expect
Many therapists offer a private session for smoking cessation with follow-up sessions if necessary. A stop smoking consultation with a hypnotherapist will generally involve gathering information into your personal reasons for wanting to quit smoking and some issues regarding the past failures a smoker might have experienced when stopping smoking.
The stopping smoking session or sessions will include hypnotherapy techniques, positive affirmations and hypnotic suggestions. At the end you will often be given a stop smoking CD to take away so that you can continue to reinforce the suggestions in your own time and environment of choice.
The cost of a hypnotherapy session for stopping smoking will be minimal compared to the financial and health costs incurred during a lifetime of smoking.
Granted, nicotine is a difficult substance to go without when giving up smoking, but after a few days it is out of your system and most smokers agree that stopping smoking for a few days is difficult but very achievable.
So that’s it! A tricky few days and then a lifetime of freedom. So why hasn’t it been that easy previously? Simple – you didn’t deal with the psychological addiction of smoking. In fact, you probably put cigarettes up on some kind of a pedestal. Most smoking cessation approaches fail to recognize that smoking is also a psychological addiction Hypnosis addresses both the physical and psychological dependency.
If you think that stopping smoking is depriving you of something, then it is just a matter of time until you start again. Hypnotherapy is ideal for this. Using hypnosis, you can deal with all of the emotional and psychological aspects of giving up smoking.
Hypnotherapy has enjoyed a high success rate with smoking cessation and stopping smoking is one of the most common reasons why people chose to consult hypnotherapists. When stopping smoking, it best not to dwell on negative aspects such as ill-health, but instead to aim for positive outcomes such as good health, fitness, freedom and energy.
“I can hardly believe that I have been smoke free for 6 weeks. I smoked for 40+ years and wasn’t sure if this would work since I had tried other methods with no success. Joy told me that I would be surprised how easy it would be to quit – and she was right.
The first two days were not all that easy, but not terrible either. I would be blowing smoke if I told you that I didn’t want to light up a cigarette when I left her office that afternoon, because I still did want to smoke. But I was determined to give this method a fair chance. So, as instructed – I listened faithfully every night to the CD that Joy sent me home with. By the third day I couldn’t believe how easy it was getting. I even had several stressful events happen in the weeks right after I quit – and still I did not smoke.
Now – 6 weeks later, I am amazed how simple it was. I only wish I had done it sooner. Thank you so much Joy! Keep up the good work! I’ll be sending others your way.”
