Alcohol dependency is a complex problem that can sneak up on people. Alcohol consumption is…
Stoptober takes place during the month of October and is a nationwide campaign encouraging people to quit smoking. It’s helpful as it can give people extra support and many people find challenges easier when faced alongside other people.
Why is Smoking so Hard to Quit?
A habit as deeply ingrained as smoking can be is extremely hard to kick. When relying on willpower alone, many people will unfortunately find the challenge too much. However, when you add something else into the mix – a way to address the deep rooted addiction of smoking – then it becomes much easier. Smoking is physically addictive but also emotionally and mentally addictive. Many people don’t realise how much these other aspects of the addiction are influencing their behaviour.
Why Stoptober is a Good Time to Quit
Everyone knows that smoking is inherently bad for you. Never a day goes by without scientific or medical reports featured in the media outlining the various health hazards caused by excessive smoking. The simple fact of the matter is that although many people have the desire to give up smoking, the reality is that when it comes down to finding the willpower and motivation required to actually give up, they find themselves struggling.
This is why the Stoptober campaign offers hope for these individuals. The campaign provides that additional motivation for people, who require extra help in terms of willpower that’s required to be successful in breaking old patterns of behaviour. Another benefit of this kind of campaign is that it has been shown in many clinical studies that if an individual can refrain from smoking for a period of time such as 3 to 4 weeks, there is a significant increase in the chances of giving up smoking completely. The Stoptober campaign works by providing a starting block and because it is a national campaign it provides the opportunity for friends and family to get involved which can also help with motivation.
Why You Might Need More Help
However, the reality is that although this type of campaign does provide an initial burst of enthusiasm, as the days progress and the desires of the individual for a cigarette increases, their self discipline begins to weaken. This is where hypnotherapy for smoking cessation can help. Renowned for being a highly effective method of helping people to give up smoking, it provides a simple solution to keep focused on their goal at that time when the motivation and enthusiasm start to wane.
