CAN I STOP SMOKING?
It is important to understand that the nicotine addiction is not the main problem in stopping smoking. Nicotine can be out of your system in as little as three to four days.
With this in mind, one might ask why it is that people can give up smoking for one, two or maybe three months and then drift back to cigarettes.
The reason is simply that they have never overcome the psychological habit of being a smoker. The habit is lodged in the subconscious mind and there it remains even though the conscious mind may not be aware of its presence, although it may show up as increased levels of anger or an increased desire for food.
There is also a strong possibility that the nagging desire that this habit creates may gradually wear the ex-smoker down, until, in a moment of stress or weakness they give in and light that first cigarette.
Hypnotherapy is designed to overcome the psychological addiction. Hypnosis allows the habit of being a smoker to be replaced with the habit of being a non-smoker. Hypnosis will strengthen the desire and motivation of the person to stop smoking in exactly the same way that Hypnosis is used by sportspeople to increase their motivation and performance.
It doesn’t matter:
- How heavily you smoke:
- How long you have smoked;
- How often you have unsuccessfully tried to stop.
It does matter:
- That you have a strong desire to break the habit;
- That it must be your own decision to stop smoking.
