Stop smoking using hypnosis may seem like your last choice. You may have tried to stop on your own many times in the past – you may have even been successful for a while. But then something happens. Your job, the kids, money, health – they all create STRESS at one time or another. When the stress comes, you look for something that you thought was relaxing, comforting, soothing. You reach for – A CIGARETTE! And then you have another, and another, and another and you’re back into that vicious cycle.
So you try it again on your own; or you try the patch, or gum, or even the E-Cigarettes. All the flavor, the chemicals, but no smoke. Wow! But you still haven’t stopped.
Then somebody suggests hypnosis to stop smoking. You might even know someone who stopped smoking with hypnosis. You’re skeptical. You’ve never been hypnotized and you certainly don’t want to have someone else in control of you and your mind! You do some research on the internet to learn more about hypnosis and discover that in hypnosis you are always in control! Nobody can make you do anything you don’t want to do! And they won’t try and make you quack like a duck! So you make the phone (or in some cases, you have your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend or family member make the call for you). Sounds easy enough. You make the appointment.
During the appointment you are able to talk about all the stresses in your life that may be a barrier to your success in stop smoking with hypnosis. You talk about your triggers – when you smoke, where you smoke, why your smoke. You talk about the reasons you want to stop smoking with hypnosis now. And you find out all about hypnosis and how it works and why it works. Wow! So far it’s really easy and you learn a lot. And you feel comfortable now with the processes.
After the hypnosis session you find that you don’t want a cigarette – just yet. You’ll wait until you get home. But the desire isn’t there yet. So you decide you’ll wait a little longer before having a cigarette. But later on, you still don’t want one. And you may even say to yourself, “This is so weird!” You wait, and wait. You may have a little discomfort as your body begins to detox and let go of all the poisons and chemicals that you’ve been inhaling. You drink plenty of water and water seems to have a calming and satisfying feeling for you.
When you return for your follow-up appointment, preferably one – three days after your initial appointment, you’re feeling hopeful, more peaceful and calm than you’ve felt in a long time. And you’re ready to continue to make sure that you remain a non-smoker forever!
Let go of the fear and give yourself the gift of health and freedom from cigarettes! You won’t regret it.
As one client wrote: “I have now been 4 weeks totally smoke & soda free, with absolutely no chance of going back. I have put myself to the test by visiting people that smoke. It didn’t tempt me at all. I feel so energetic and have an overwhelming desire to continue doing great things for myself.”
