Are you ready to quit smoking? Hypnosis can help.
Do you feel like smoking has taken control of your life?
Do you hate the smell, the wasted money, the sneaking around, the health problems and the inconvenience that smoking causes you?
Hypnosis can help you learn how to take control of your mind so that you can quit smoking and take back control of your life.
When you started smoking you probably had a good reason for doing so. Maybe your family members smoked or you needed to fit in with friends or you wanted to rebel. Perhaps your smoking habit has evolved to fill other needs. But now you realize that smoking is a harmful and expensive habit that takes up your valuable time and mental energy. You hate that feeling of being chained to this habit. And you’re finally ready to be done with it.
How good will it feel to be free of the worry of health problems? To have extra money? To be free of the smell and the ashes? And perhaps most importantly you’ll finally be free to do whatever you like whenever you like without having to worry about sneaking away for a cigarette or hiding your habit from friends, family members or co-workers. You can be free to go to a restaurant, travel, spend time with kids or grandkids, do whatever you like and enjoy yourself right there in the moment without the worry about where you’re going to have your next cigarette. You’re finally ready to quit smoking for the rest of your life.
So how can hypnosis help you quit smoking?
Your conscious mind which is the rational, logical, thinking part of your mind is the part that knows smoking is harmful and desperately wants to quit. However your subconscious mind controls your emotions, habits and desires and it is not always rational. It wants what it wants in the moment and doesn’t think or care about consequences. It gets many benefits from smoking, some that you might not even be aware of consciously, and sees no reason to quit. In fact it may even feel a bit panicky at the thought of giving something up that’s provided it with so much pleasure. So the part of you that wants to quit ends up battling it out with the part of you that doesn’t.
This is where hypnosis steps in. When you’re in a hypnotic state your subconscious mind is much more open to suggestions for change. It’s easier to convince it that smoking is harmful and causes you so many problems. We can show it all the benefits of life as a non-smoker and reassure it that it will still get the benefits that smoking provided it but now in positive, healthy ways. Hypnosis doesn’t ‘make’ you quit smoking but rather it allows your mind to accept the benefits of quitting and realize the dangers of not quitting on a subconscious level.
Everybody has their personal issues with smoking so sessions are tailored to the individual. It’s possible to quit in one session but it’s important that you’re really truly motivated and ready to quit.
