Hypnosis for quitting smoking
“I’d been smoking for the best part of 30 years. I knew I wanted to give up but after trying pretty much every aid available I was still a 20 a day smoker. My biggest problem was lack of motivation and I soon realised that none of the traditional aids was going to help me with that. So I decided to try hypnotherapy. It worked a treat. Been a non smoker now for over a year”
There can be no doubt in anyone’s mind that smoking does you harm. Numerous studies show the inherent dangers that smokers put themselves in by smoking. Recent figures show that the majority of people would actually like to give up but seem to struggle, even when using traditional aids such as gums, patches etc. The fact is that giving up smoking requires one major element that cannot be purchased over a shop counter or prescribed by a doctor and that is will power.
Will power is literally the internal dialogue that keeps you continuing on a certain path. It’s the desire and internal strength to keep going even though other factors may well be against you. Will power is required in everyday life as a rule, but when trying to kick a long established habit such as smoking ,it becomes essential. It is literally the difference between success and failure. The problem for many people is that their desire to smoke, or to avoid suffering the potential side effects of giving up smoking , simply outweigh their desire to give up.
So how do you increase your will power to the point that you feel capable of stopping smoking? Quite simply, Hypnotherapy. Of all the methods available to help you quit smoking, hypnotherapy has the highest success rates over the long term. The reason is that hypnotherapy literally goes to the core of the problem rather than masking the problem. It finds the reasons why you’re having trouble stopping smoking and deals with that issue. Once this change is achieved, your desire to smoke diminishes, and you become a non smoker. The other good news is that it can achieved in as little as one session. So what are you waiting for?
