Hypnosis Quit Smoking Detox Program
What is a Detox Program?
A Detox is the process by which all traces of drugs & chemicals
are removed from the body.
What Am I Detoxing From?
During this process your body will go through a detox to remove the harmful chemicals such as tar, carbon monoxide and nicotine, a highly stimulating substance which speeds up the messages sent to and from your brain. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the chemicals found in cigarettes cause ‘cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Smoking also increases risk for tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis.
Second-hand smoke exposure contributes to approximately 41,000 deaths among non smoking adults and 400 deaths in infants each year. Second-hand smoke causes stroke, lung cancer, and coronary heart disease in adults. Children who are exposed to second-hand smoke are at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome, acute respiratory infections, middle ear disease, more severe asthma, respiratory symptoms, and slowed lung growth.
What happens when I detox?
Health benefits are seen almost instantly when quitting smoking, when reprogramming your mind with new habits. Below is the timeline of the positive health changes as soon as a person stops smoking their body begins to recover in the following ways.
Here is a timeline as the body starts to detox and get rid of the dangerous chemicals as soon as a person stops smoking their body begins to recover in the following ways:
In as little as 20 minutes after the last cigarette is smoked, the heart rate drops and returns to normal. Blood pressure begins to drop, and circulation may start to improve.
AFTER 12 HOURS
Cigarettes contain a lot of known toxins including carbon monoxide, a gas present in cigarette smoke.
This gas can be harmful or fatal in high doses and prevents oxygen from entering the lungs and blood. When inhaled in large doses in a short time, suffocation can occur from lack of oxygen.
After just 12 hours without a cigarette, the body cleanses itself of the excess carbon monoxide from the cigarettes. The carbon monoxide level returns to normal, increasing the body’s oxygen levels.
AFTER 1 DAY
Just 1 day after quitting smoking, the risk of heart attack begins to decrease.
Smoking raises the risk of developing coronary heart disease by lowering good cholesterol, which makes heart-healthy exercise harder to do. Smoking also raises blood pressure and increases blood clots, increasing the risk of stroke.
In as little as 1 day after quitting smoking, a person’s blood pressure begins to drop, decreasing the risk of heart disease from smoking-induced high blood pressure. In this short time, a person’s oxygen levels will have risen, making physical activity and exercise easier to do, promoting heart-healthy habits.
AFTER 2 DAYS
Smoking damages the nerve endings responsible for the senses of smell and taste. In as little as 2 days after quitting, a person may notice a heightened sense of smell and more vivid tastes as these nerves heal.
AFTER 3 DAYS
3 days after quitting smoking, the nicotine levels in a person’s body are depleted. While it is healthier to have no nicotine in the body, this initial depletion can cause nicotine withdrawal. Around 3 days after quitting, most people will experience moodiness and irritability, severe headaches, and cravings as the body readjusts.
AFTER 1 MONTH
In as little as 1 month, a person’s lung function begins to improve. As the lungs heal and lung capacity improves, former smokers may notice less coughing and shortness of breath. Athletic endurance increases and former smokers may notice a renewed ability for cardiovascular activities, such as running and jumping.
AFTER 1-3 MONTHS
For the next several months after quitting, circulation continues to improve.
AFTER 9 MONTHS
Nine months after quitting, the lungs have significantly healed themselves. The delicate, hair-like structures inside the lungs known as cilia have recovered from the toll cigarette smoke took on them. These structures help push mucus out of the lungs and help fight infections.
Around this time, many former smokers notice a decrease in the frequency of lung infections because the healed cilia can do their job more easily.
AFTER 1 YEAR
One year after quitting smoking, a person’s risk for coronary heart disease decreases by half. This risk will continue to drop past the 1-year mark.
AFTER 5 YEARS
Cigarettes contain many known toxins that cause the arteries and blood vessels to narrow. These same toxins also increase the likelihood of developing blood clots.
After 5 years without smoking, the body has healed itself enough for the arteries and blood vessels to begin to widen again. This widening means the blood is less likely to clot, lowering the risk of stroke.
The risk of stroke will continue to reduce over the next 10 years as the body heals more and more.
AFTER 10 YEARS
After 10 years, a person’s chances of developing lung cancer and dying from it are roughly cut in half compared with someone who continues to smoke. The likelihood of developing mouth, throat, or pancreatic cancer has significantly reduced.
AFTER 15 YEARS
After 15 years of having quit smoking, the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease is the equivalent of a non-smoker. Similarly, the risk of developing pancreatic cancer has reduced to the same level as a non-smoker.
AFTER 20 YEARS
After 20 years, the risk of death from smoking-related causes, including both lung disease and cancer, drops to the level of a person who has never smoked in their life. Also, the risk of developing pancreatic cancer has reduced to that of someone who has never smoked.
Tried Quitting Before?
Why do people relapse after 1 to 3 days then?
Triggers are the things that remind you want to smoke, such as having coffee in the morning or when stressed. Triggers slightly vary from person to person depending on your routine and daily habits.
Common triggers include:
- feeling stressed
- finishing a meal or drinking alcohol
- with coffee
These are the common types of situations to trigger smoking. In a detox and hypnosis program the brain is retrained to create a ‘new habit, that is designed to replace old habits and stop the association with certain triggers.
How’s This Different?
Hypnosis detox program, the focus is on the mental & psychological aspect, removing the triggers and habits connected to smoking such as feeling stressed or bored. Removing the triggers & negative habits combined with creating new beneficial healthy perspective, means the person becomes an non-smoker looking back at cigarettes as an old habit rather an ex-smoker someone who’s likely to relapse.
