Stop Smoking, Quit Smoking, Smoking Cessation
It’s called a variety of things but the idea is the same. For your health and for the health of those around you stopping smoking can be the critical factor.
We’ve found that people smoke because, in their mind, smoking has become tied to something important. Smoking represents freedom to some and rebellion to others. Perhaps it helps you relax or take a break. Others smoke when out with friends and socializing.
Together, we find the reasons you smoke and find better ways to accomplish those things. We’ve found that when these needs are addressed ahead of time, and more healthy and conscious means are found to satisfy them, the desire to smoke drops dramatically.
Exploring “smoking triggers” is another facet of our approach. Do you smoke after you eat, when you’re on the phone, before bed, while you’re driving? Together we will find all the examples of the time you know “it’s time to smoke.” Blowing out those triggers takes smoking out of the “I just found myself with a cigarette in my hand” category and into the category of conscious choice.
Hypnosis can help you to stop smoking. It works best under the condition that you truly want to quit – not because someone is nagging you into it, but for yourself. Hypnosis has been shown to be one of the most effective tools to help someone quit smoking. But remember that Hypnosis is not a magical cure-all. The hypnotherapist doesn’t quit smoking FOR you, you are still the one that has to quit. Knowing that, hypnosis can be a powerful tool to strengthen your motivation and dissolve the hold that your current “smoking triggers” have over you, in addition to decreasing or even eradicating cravings, and making the whole process easier and much more likely to succeed.
