Q: How many times have you tried to stop smoking?
A: Oh, loads of times.
Q: How many methods have you used?
A: Well, I’ve tried patches, spray, e-cigarettes, gum, acupuncture; I’ve even had tablets off the doctor!
If you’re looking at this website, it’s likely that you’re considering hypnotherapy to help you quit. Maybe you know someone who used hypnotherapy and it worked for them or maybe you just think you’ll have ‘one last try’ and you’ve got nothing to lose. Either way, if you’re serious about quitting, read on.
Have you ever wondered why the conventional methods designed to help you stop smoking actually fail to do so? This is because these products are actually NICOTINE REPLACEMENTS. They are therefore not at all helpful in assisting you to get rid of that craving for nicotine. In fact your dependency is not likely to decrease at all and in some cases can create an additional dependency. An example of this is the NICOTINE REPLACEMENT GUM. How many people do you know who stopped smoking using this method only to become addicted to the GUM itself? Also, how many people do you know who use the GUM but then continue to smoke on top of this?
An alternative method some people have used to help stop smoking is Acupuncture. Whilst this can be successful, it is less so than Hypnotherapy simply because it does not address the psychological effects of smoking.
Now, we all know that smoking is very bad for your physical health and by smoking, the risk of serious illness and death is increased. We also know that smoking is very expensive and that despite this, smokers will prioritise buying cigarettes over other things, sometimes priority items such as food. Both of these issues can have a serious impact on you, your friends and family. There is something therefore in your mind that drives you to continue to smoke despite you logically understanding that you shouldn’t.
This is the reason why Hypnotherapy is so successful and is becoming the most recognised and popular method to help smokers quit for good. The first time you started smoking, I can guarantee that you did not like the taste and probably started coughing. You started coughing because your mind was trying to tell you that this was not a good thing to do for your body. Yet you continued to force yourself to smoke for whatever reason. Hypnotherapy works by reprogramming your subconscious mind to understand that smoking is bad for you and that it is an addiction and habit you no longer need. It’s as simple as that!
Now there’s lots of Hypnotherapists out there so why choose me?
Well, I know what it feels like to try to stop and then fail miserably. I smoked for 26 years and I was a heavy smoker. I tried patches, gum and Champix tablets. I became addicted to the gum, the patches made me burn and the tablets made me feel depressed. I also know what it feels like to have people criticise you as if you have no will power. And also in social situations, things could become awkward – always looking for the smoking area! In work, having a cigarette before any lengthy meeting and then again afterwards! I have also been known to avoid certain social events or people because of the fact that I smoked, and I hated people getting in my car!
Now, I am a NON SMOKER, and I achieved this through the power of Hypnotherapy. I have a 100% success rate with my clients. However, Hypnotherapy is not a miracle cure and a real desire to stop smoking is required. It is not magic, you over-ruled your subconscious before when you started smoking and you can do so again. I would rather not work with you if you are not committed.
