We all know smoking is bad for us, but this habit is not only physically addictive, it’s a long-term, learned behaviour that can be extremely hard to change. Every year nearly 100,000 people die in the UK from smoking related illnesses. If willpower alone isn’t working for you, hypnotherapy for smoking might be the answer. It’s an effective, treatment that breaks the destructive behavioural cycle setting your free from smoking for good.
Hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular and effective treatments for smoking. It focuses on changing beliefs, behaviours and perspective. By addressing the real cause of the problem quitting will become easier and you won’t have to constantly struggle at each every turn.
Many people find that it’s not the physical withdrawal from nicotine that they struggle with when they try and stop smoking. Instead, it’s the psychological aspects – a seemingly important part of your life is suddenly absent. Many smokers rely on their habit when coping with stress, depression, anxiety or boredom so they need a new way to cope with these things in order to be successful.
