Cure smoking with Hypnosis

Got Cigarettes? Hypnosis To The Rescue!

Within 24 hours of your last cigarette your chances of a heart attack decreases.
Within 72 hours your bronchial tubes relax, making breathing easier and your
lung capacity increases. Soon after, in the next two weeks to two months your
circulation improves so that walking and exercising becomes easier. You increase
your lung function up to 30%!

Your body is an amazing healer. Every day you are cigarette free you become
symptom free. Coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue, shortness of breath all
decrease and subside. Cilia re-grows in lungs, increasing ability to handle
mucous, clean the lungs and reduce infection. Your energy level increases

Most smokers hate the habit, hate the smell, and are embarrassed by how others
react to them. They know the cancer statistics. You would think that is enough
to make someone stop. For most smokers it isn't that easy. This insidious habit
actually has many components to it. The approach used to stop smoking with the
help of hypnosis varies depending upon the type of smoker you are.

The first type of smoker is the one that started because all their friends were
doing it. It became a habit as they associated smoking with all aspects of their
daily routine. They smoke purely because it is habit. Quitting is pretty easy
for them. Through hypnosis, they release cigarettes from their daily routine and
create new rituals. They don’t miss the smoking and any withdrawal symptoms are
minor and tolerable.

The second type of smoker is the one who grew up with it. Parents are smokers,
as well as friends and siblings. They may have been exposed to smoke all of
their life. They smoke because it is a part of what they know and it becomes
part of who they are. They have seen family members struggle with smoking and
even die from cancer or emphysema. Quitting can be challenging if the people
they live with smoke or family members smoke. They risk others trying to
sabotage them back into the habit. On the bright side when these smokers are
motivated to quit, nothing will stop them. They have to release the ‘friend’
that the cigarette has become. Luckily smoker relatives and friends tend to be
very respectful of those that choose to quit. If this smoker believes they will
suffer from withdrawal symptoms, they usually will. However, that can be
minimized or eliminated with hypnosis.

The third type of smoker is the one who smokes because they think it relaxes
them. Often times they are high strung and suffer from some anxiety. The reality
is that there is not one chemical in a cigarette that is a relaxant. The
chemicals constrict blood vessels and make the heart work harder. What they
really need to do is to ‘get away from it all’ which is what they do when they
take a smoking break. They also use cigarettes as a reward for completing tasks.
The fix is easy. They continue to take their breaks, but use replacement
relaxation techniques. They get replacement rewards too for a job well done.
Hypnosis reduces stress which helps makes the transition to non smoking smooth.

The fourth type of smoker is the addict who has been involved with drugs as well
as smoking. Typically they have a family history of addiction. Usually they beat
the drug habit and keep the smoking habit because it “isn’t as bad”. It is the
last hold out of their addictive behavior, but eventually they realize they need
to quit. This type of smoker does well with hypnosis but needs replacements for
the habit. They sip on water to replace the oral habit. They use a finger
rub/release for something to do with their hands. They learn how to breathe
deeply, as smokers usually tend to have shallow breathing. They expect to
withdraw, but are usually pleasantly surprised to find that they tolerate it
pretty well. A piece of cake, when they use hypnosis, compared to withdrawal
from drugs and rehab.

When my clients come in for a session I ask if they think they will have
withdrawal symptoms (anxiety, irritability, urges). I did a study with my
clients over a period of a few years. The clients who said yes, did have
symptoms. The ones who answered no, didn’t have any symptoms at all! So to
solve the problem, I have them experience the symptoms they believe they will
suffer from during the hypnosis session. Because the mind does not differentiate
between what is real or imagined, they experience the symptoms and then let them
go. They know then that the symptoms are manageable and in most cases they are
eliminated completely.
