The most important question is why do you want to stop smoking? Is it for your health? Too expensive? “my doctor told me to”, “my wife doesn’t like the smell”. The answer you want to get to is “for my health” above all else. This is sufficient enough motivation to stop! Are you aware of the dangers lurking in your bloodstream? 4000 chemical compounds are lurking in amongst a burning cigarette, 69 known to create cancer!! I ask my clients why do you smoke? “because it relaxes me!” and I say there is not one chemical in that cigarette that would ever relax your body. It’s the long slow deep inhalation on the cigarette that causes the body to relax….. yes that’s right, the deep breath which we can do anytime and anywhere without jeopardising your body.
Establish that becoming a non-smoker is an opportunity not a problem, and with the help of Hypnotherapy you can make it possible! Hypnotherapists help many smokers achieve their goal of quitting on a regular basis. It is a well known area of our work, and the results we produce are quite astounding, that’s why so many ex-smokers send their friends and family members to us!
Many people considering stopping smoking feel that their true choice is being taken away from them. The secret of hypnotherapy is that it gets people to use their imagination to create a non-smoking future. This often feels very positive and empowering. Stopping smoking becomes a positive and definite choice.
