Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking
Quit Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Edinburgh
You may have started smoking because you thought it was cool; everyone around you was doing it or perhaps you had a rebellious streak, so if someone said, ‘Don’t!’ you just had to do the opposite.
Whatever the reason back then, you weren’t going to think about the effects on your health, your well-being or your pocket, you just grew to like the taste and now think you need buzz it gives.
You know it’s bad for you; smoking harms nearly every organ in your body: is responsible for numerous diseases: reduces life expectancy and harms your quality of life. Only some time later you find yourself addicted to this expensive and dangerous habit and although you’d love to quit you can hardly imagine a day without a cigarette.
Understanding Why We Smoke
Many smokers are convinced that smoking helps relieve stress but in fact once you stop you’re more likely to be both calmer and happier. Many would love to stop but carry on because they believe it will be just too difficult to stop.
They tell themselves they may put on weight, have withdrawal symptoms, get stressed and no longer enjoy life. Hypnotherapy and NLP can help deal with all of these issues. They make it much easier to quit smoking; all it calls for is your willingness and desire to stop.
Hypnotherapists regularly help smokers to fulfil their ambition to be non-smokers and hypnosis is known to be the most effective method to achieve it. By using hypnotherapy, NLP and behavioural therapy I can help you to be a happy, healthy, confident and relaxed non-smoker.
You will be able to break the connections with smoking; the emotional ones [e.g. stress or boredom] and the physical ones [e.g. at the end of a meal, or during a work break] and be able to confidently say, ‘No!’ to cigarettes and tobacco.
This method is successful because it considers both the conscious and unconscious areas of the mind. During our sessions I can help you to alter your habits and the reasons why you validate them. The hypnotherapy and NLP are used to refocus your mind, allowing it to substitute your unwanted beliefs about smoking with a new positive outlook.
You will find that we can tackle the reasons why people fail to remain non-smokers [mood swings, cravings, irritability, withdrawal symptoms etc.] and replace them with a feeling of calmness, relaxation, greater self-confidence, increased vitality and improved happiness.
How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Stop Smoking
Hypnosis is an effective treatment for people who wish to stop smoking and it instils a new set of belief patterns for the client. Smoking is by and large a psychological addiction. Someone who smokes 80 cigarettes a day will often sleep happily throughout the night, yet when they wake up, all the self-programmed associations begin to kick in; Cigarette with first drink, cigarette in car on way to work etc.
Hypnotherapy has been clinically proven to be an effective method for helping people to stop smoking – regardless of how long you’ve smoked, how many you smoke, or how often. Stop smoking hypnotherapy is not a temporary fix – as long as you’re totally committed, it can be permanent.
Hypnotherapy works as it retrains both the conscious and subconscious parts of your mind. Stopping smoking through hypnotherapy also helps minimise those all-too-familiar withdrawal pangs of irritability, mood swings and cravings, the primary reasons why people fail to permanently stop smoking. Instead, a session of hypnotherapy could leave you with feelings of mental calmness, physical relaxation, improved self-confidence, increased energy and vitality and an overall sense of wellbeing.
You can be successful at stopping smoking, and be confident about leading the life you want for yourself by harnessing your inner power.
