Why Do Smokers Smoke?

Smokers are interesting folk. They like their tobacco.  They enjoy the smoke rolling over their tongue and 
sucking it deeply into their lungs. They enjoy a brief moment of the rush they get as the tobacco enters
their bloodstream and reaches the brain quickly.   They like to huff and puff and blow the smoke out
of their mouth, off their lips and into the air. Some creative smokers are very good at smoke rings; one
inside the other. They like to flick their cigarettes as far as they can. It's a flicking contest to see if they
can flick their little tobacco butt to a certain pre-determined location; like playing darts going for the target.

Smokers like to smoke however there are a few who really do want to stop. They are tired of waking up and
spitting out phlegm every morning from the smokers hack.  They are tired of people, especially their children tell them it's bad and that they stink. They see the signs all around them that let them know that cigarettes can and do kill or maim people everyday. Hundreds of thousands of people.

Hypnosis is one of the most powerful methods to help a person stop smoking naturally and permanently. BUT, there is a problem. Smokers like to smoke regardless. Even though they can chew gum, get patches, acupuncture, laser and of course use hypnosis; many go back and will still smoke.

So, what's going on? Why are people so freakin' into this self-destructive habit that they are willing to risk their lives to continue on with it? It is irrational behavior (but so is politics).

Smoking is not rational folks, it is an emotional issue. People are emotionally anchored to the smoking habit. HABIT. Yes I said habit. Not addiction because in 72 hours from stopping all the tobacco is out of the system and then all you have left is "monkey talk". In case you don't know what monkey talk is it is that garbage in the mind that swirls around reinforcing all the dumb reasons to smoke.

You look kool.
You feel better.
You are more relaxed.
You reduce stress.
You relieve anxiety.

So for all you smokers out there now pay attention because I will share with you the easiest way to stop smoking. It ain't will power, it ain't pills, it ain't drugs or patches either. You just stop.

Yeah right you say! Been there, done that, failed. Yes you have but if you use a strategy based on emotions you will be successful.

You can use positive or negative reinforcement. It does not matter.  The only thing that matters is that you use a powerful emotional experience in your life, YOUR LIFE that you can anchor to stop smoking~ ~

I had a client who stopped easily when they put the face of their cheating smoking spouse on a cigarette. Sure made them not want to suck face with tobacco anymore.

Another client had beautiful grand kids and wanted, really wanted to be around for their graduation.

Then there was a client who lost their very friend to cancer and saw and felt the pain it caused him and the family. They stopped cold turkey.

And of course the client who stopped when she discovered her husband had developed cancer and ended up in the hospital and the edge of death and gave it up immediately. Fortunately he lived and she never went back to smoking again.

The one thing they have in common is an emotional experience and in the 25+ years I have been working with smokers I have found this to be true.

Why not take a moment now to look at a Stop Smoking program for yourself or someone you love. You can stop smoking with hypnosis and feel good about life all over again!

Do You Lack Confidence in Business Networking Situations?

Business networking is key, especially for the self-employed sole trader.  However, being good or earnest in your field of work does not necessarily mean you are good in sharing your interest to others or inquiring about what they do.  While a certain social skill is necessary when listening to something in which you have no interest and trying to politely escape, being confident enough to go along in the first place and open up to strangers is a challenge for many of us.

Perhaps you even dread the idea?

There is plenty of advice on the "how" of networking ie working the room, collecting business cards rather than just handing them out to people who smile politely but file them in the waste bin the next day and becoming a connector who introduces people, rather than just touting for their own business.

I found this online course which contains four elements for £79.95.  

But before you reach the "how", you need the confidence to walk in and feel comfortable.  "Feel good in your own skin" as they say.  Then there is fear of rejection, fear of failure and fear of the unknown to overcome.  All perfectly normal and understandable but annoying as they will hold you back from this wonderful medium of promoting your business.  

I can help you boost your confidence generally or more specifically in an area such as business networking confidence.  I do this with the powerful tool of hypnosis.

Hypnosis?  Don't worry.  It's perfectly safe and natural.  You allow yourself to enter a deeply relaxed state both mentally and physically and remain in control at all times.  

Using hypnosis for improved business networking confidence is not about positive thinking but about making change at the deep subconscious or unconscious level where all permanent change must take place.  That is the part of your mind, the 90-95% part of your mind, where your fears and niggling voices live, telling you that "you can't...."  Of course you can when you retrain this part of you.  It's easy, quick and very effective.

The very best way to do this is for me to help you one-to-one at my practice in Portsmouth, Hampshire on the southern coast of England.  I do sometimes see clients in London or Brussels, Belgium and clients fly in from other countries for my help.

Another way to help is to listen to a download hypnosis mp3 on business networking confidence.  It only costs a few US Dollars which you can pay in your currency via credit card.  You can listen to it when the time suits you.

On the same page of the website, you will find a list of other business-related subjects which hypnosis can also help.  Selecting two or more titles entitles you to a discount.

You don't have to dread business networking meetings.  With my help, or listening to this download hypnosis mp3 on business networking confidence, you will actually enjoy the meetings and find them productive in the growth of your business.  

By the way, I love helping people overcome their fear of public speaking, whether in small groups or to large audiences.  You might dread being asked to give a short presentation on yourself at a business networking meeting.  I used to be very shy and blush but improving my self-confidence through self-hypnosis has helped me enormously.  Now I welcome the opportunity to speak to groups, large or small, on hypnosis and personal development subjects.  If you have an issue with speaking in meetings or presentations, I can certainly help you.

No Smoking Day 50

I have just received an email from a 62 year old man who came to see me to stop smoking in one session:
“I thought I would let you know I am now on day 50, smoke free!  I am amazed how easy it was/is to give up after over 40 years.  Even in the presence of smokers (who sometimes maliciously offer me a cigarette) it doesn’t bother me, but makes me even more determined.”
My STOP SMOKING IN ONE SESSION technique works time and time again because I include several elements which I consider necessary for immediate results and long-term success.

I want to ensure that new non-smokers are not troubled by other people's smoke, are not tempted by their "still smoking friends", do not replace the smoking habit with over-eating and have lost the addiction to nicotine completely.

Trying to give up smoking by using nicotine replacement patches, gum or tablets still keeps you addicted to nicotine.  In fact nicotine chewing gum has now been linked to mouth & throat cancer.

"Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower, it turns out, counts for very little". (New Scientist, Volume 136 issue 1845 31 Oct 1992, page 6)
There are so many reasons why stopping smoking is the right decision to take whether for your health, your appearance, setting the right example to your children, giving you a substantial pay rise - the list goes on.  Maybe you are feeling the effects of damaging your lungs when doing exercise, your skin is ageing a bit too fast, you notice your white ceilings aren't quite so white any more or see people flinch to move away from you because you reek of stale smoke.   Sorry to be blunt but smokers have no idea how bad they smell to non-smokers and we don't want the stench on our clothes and hair if we visit you.

For whatever reason you first started to smoke, there are plenty of better reasons to stop.

If you really want to stop and are now ready, call me because I give results.  I'm not the cheapest but I'm also not the most expensive.  I do guarantee you this - the relatively small investment of my fee compared to years of smoking costs will be the best investment in yourself you can possibly buy.

I am based near Portsmouth in Hampshire on the south coast of England.  I can also arrange to see clients for stop smoking in London or Brussels.  My international clients find me convenient to reach with Southampton Airport just 13 miles away or a train ride from London Gatwick Airport.  Visit my site

Simon Cowell Uses Hypnosis to Kick Smoking Addiction

Simon Cowell has been lighting up for 44 years and is doing all he can to quit smoking.

The X Factor boss's loved ones have begged him to cut down his 15-cigarettes-a-day habit because of his family's health history.

'His grandfather Robert was a heavy smoker who died of lung cancer,' a source tells People.

'His father suffered a heart attack.

'It made Simon think long and hard about his own health now.'

The 52-year-old has admitted that he started smoking at the age of 8 and just last year raved about how much he enjoys it.

But Simon has made a New Year resolution for 2012 and is now receiving treatment - including hypnosis - from a top London medical centre.
