21 May stop smoking
At our Clinic we use a combination of suggestion therapy, visualisation and psychological techniques to make stopping smoking as easy as possible.
Over 90% of the thousands of smokers who have quit using the methods we apply, gave up easily.
A couple of years ago the largest study ever conducted into stopping smoking was undertaken (in the U.S.A.) It studied everything from; will power, nicotine patches, positive thinking, placebos, chewing gum etc – and the conclusion was that “most techniques turned out to be hopeless, Hypnosis however came out as the most effective anti-smoking technique“
With the powerful Smoking Cessation techniques that I use, 90% of smokers find it easy to quit.
Why is it so hard to quit? In my experience, most people find it hard to give up smoking because; they receive no immediate or tangible BENEFIT for doing so: they get no reward.
Now………part of you wants to smoke. You like it. You need it. You might even love it! You’ve probably done it for years and years. It helps you to relieve stress and tension. It makes you feel confident, when you are feeling insecure. It calms you down when you’ve been feeling anxious. It acts as a reward after a tough day at work. It makes you feel ‘whole’, and ‘complete’. (I could go on and on and on here) Why would you want to give up all those benefits?, and receive no reward for doing so? Why do you want to quit? You might think that by quitting you would; live a little longer, feel a little healthier, get nagged a little less from your partner or kids, save a few quid, or have nicer smelling breath. The trouble is, ……….and here is the problem, ……….. none of those reasons bring immediate rewards i.e. You don’t feel healthier/fitter/richer/nicer smelling/less nagged, the day after quitting smoking. (or the next day, or week, or even month)That doesn’t sound like a good deal to me! – give up something I love, and in five years I may just feel a little healthier!
No wonder people often get stressed, moody, stroppy, angry and depressed when they quit smoking by willpower alone.
People want their rewards and benefits NOW – not in five/ ten or twenty years time.
Hypnotherapy for smoking cessation is so successful, because you do receive immediate rewards for your efforts;• you feel an intense sense of pride and satisfaction • you receive an immediate boost to your willpower • you gain a huge amount of confidence in your ability to remain a non smoker • situations that used to make you feel stressed or anxious, now just relax you
this list could go on and on and on……
Ask yourself this;
if you received a fantastic sense of well-being, calmness, pride and satisfaction everytime you got yourself in a situation where you used to have a cigarette,
why would you want or need to smoke again?
