Almost 70% of adult smokers say they want to quit; the most common reason given is concern about their health. There is no point in telling people that smoking can cause heart attacks, cancer and death. The smoker can see that every time they buy a packet of cigarettes. Hypnotherapists help many smokers achieve their goal of quitting on a regular basis. It is a well-known area of our work, and the results we produce are quite astounding, that’s why ex-smokers send their friends and family members to us. Deciding to become a smoker is not a decision that most people take logically. It is an emotional decision taken at a subconscious level. Therefore, any decision to stop needs to be taken at that same level. Quite simply, this is why hypnosis is such a successful way to give up smoking cigarettes. Many people considering stopping smoking feel that their true choice is being taken away from them. The secret of hypnotherapy is that it gets people to use their imagination to create a non-smoking future. This often feels very positive and empowering. Stopping smoking becomes the positive and definite choice.
Hypnotherapy is an extraordinarily powerful means of bringing about a shift in thinking, which enables people to stop smoking. This is achieved by aligning the “subconscious” beliefs, habits and associations with the “conscious” choice of the client to stop smoking. Often the client feels in conflict… part of them wants to quit (the conscious mind) and part of them doesn’t (the subconscious mind).
When a client comes for Hypnotherapy they hold a firm belief that they are a smoker, even though they have made a conscious choice to stop smoking. They also have created fixed habits and associations in connection with their smoking i.e. ; they may smoke while driving, after a meal, with a coffee or first thing in the morning. The way the client feels about their beliefs, habits and associations must be changed to allow them to feel and act differently when they go back into those old situations they used to smoke in.
