If you have decided you want to stop smoking, you might have heard of various methods including nicotine patches, nicotine chewing gum, acupuncture, prescription drugs and will-power. So, why use hypnosis?
1. It works immediately.
2. Hypnosis reprograms your mind at the powerful subconscious level to make the changes permanent.
3. A hypnosis session is pleasant and deeply relaxing with no side effects.
Have you considered what your life would be like if you never smoked again?
Imagine feeling healthy every day if you were no longer inhaling tobacco smoke with all its poisons into your body. Imagine starting the day without a coughing fit. Imagine feeling younger, fitter and more attractive if your body was optimising your health and energy, rather than suffering additional damage every day.
Imagine how happy and confident you would feel knowing that you had lengthened your life by years, possibly decades, and knowing you had greatly improved your chances of avoiding health problems.
Your family will thank you for taking responsibility to give you the best chance of a long and healthy life. A friend's husband died of lung cancer after 20 years of smoking, leaving behind an adoring wife and two girls who were not even ten years old. His girls still resent him for continuing to smoke when they begged him to stop and now leaving them so early in their lives.
Think about the thousands you will save over the years and all the fun things you can do to improve the quality of your life and of your loved ones. Wouldn't you rather put your children through university than smoke your way to an early grave?
Just imagine ...
The Fastest Way to Transform Your Life
There are several ways to stop smoking but many take a lot of time, many have a low success rate and some even have damaging side effects. Nicotine based products might stop you smoking but keep you addicted to nicotine with the possible risk of oral cancer from nicotine chewing gum.
Hypnotherapy, by contrast, offers a method which enables the smoker to give up smoking immediately, permanently in a deep, relaxing way without any side effects. New Scientist magazine (October 1992) investigated the various stop smoking methods available in a huge study involving 72,000 people and found hypnotherapy to be the most successful.
Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy
The hypnotherapist induces hypnosis which is a simple and relaxing process which everyone can experience and then makes a number of suggestions to you which will allow you to leave smoking behind in the past.
How It Works
Every smoker started smoking for a reason, often during their teenage years to "appear big and grown up". Everyone thinks they can stop anytime they want to but often find it is not as easy as they think. So they look at various ways of stopping, usually waste lots of time and money before trying hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy works by accessing the subconscious mind direct because that is where every experience we have ever been through is stored and creates habits, good and bad ones. The subconscious mind does not know any difference between imagination and reality so if you reprogram it with positive outcomes, albeit imagined ones, it will do what is necessary to make them a reality. That is why hypnotherapy works for so many issues, not just stopping smoking.
Your hypnosis session will reinforce the positive outcomes of becoming and remaining a non-smoker.
Some people even have unnecessary fears about stopping smoking such as overeating as a substitute and putting on weight. Hypnosis will give positive suggestions to stop that happening. You will not be fighting cravings but rather enjoying the benefits of clean air, unclogged lungs, fresh-smelling clothes.
Remember that international scientific research by New Scientist reported that hypnotherapy is a much more powerful help than willpower alone, gum, patches and the other methods.
The average smoker spends around £2000 per year on smoking so stopping smoking will save a fortune over the years. Maybe even enough to buy your home outright. It therefore makes sense to invest a relatively small sum now to stop smoking quickly, either by visiting a qualified and experienced hypnotherapist for personal therapy or download a hypnosis Mp3 to overcome the habit in the comfort of your own home.
