Hypnotherapy for Smoking

Have you considered hypnotherapy for smoking as a solution?

It’s a well-known fact that smoking damages your health, but have you considered the toll that smoking takes upon other aspects of your life? Hypnotherapy for smoking can be a very effective and safe solution for people who want to quit smoking and improve their health and well-being, whilst at the same time take control of their finances.

Hypnotherapy for smoking achieves something that NRTs cannot

Nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) are often the first thing people try when attempting to quit smoking. But there is so much more to quitting smoking than simply breaking your body’s physical addiction with nicotine; there is a strong psychological (mental) connection with the actual action of smoking that is deeply set in the subconscious mind. This is where hypnotherapy for smoking can work. It can help you to break the habit of smoking every time you find yourself in a particular situation. Some examples of situations that trigger psychological connections with smoking include:

  • feeling stressed or anxious
  • feeling bored
  • driving
  • drinking alcohol
  • sharing a meal with friends.

Years of these repeated behaviour patterns become strongly ingrained in the subconscious mind, so that smoking a cigarette becomes an automatic response every time that situation arises. Hypnotherapy for smoking helps you to shift these behavioural patterns. So while other stop-smoking aids such as nicotine patches and sprays may help you to wean off the physical addiction to smoking, unless you get the psychological side of things under control, there is a large likelihood of picking up the deck of smokes again.

How does hypnotherapy for smoking help you change your behaviour?

When you undergo hypnotherapy for smoking, with your permission, your therapist guides you into a state of deep relaxation. This is done by using breath control, relaxing speech and imagery. In this deeply relaxed, hypnotic, almost-trance-like state, you are able to focus incredibly clearly. Your mind is free of other distractions and so you are therefore able to access those deep subconscious thoughts. Those connections are the ones that control the behavioural patterns- the urges and triggers- to smoke that you experience. The goal is to reframe the subconscious thought processes and change your perspective on smoking.

What happens to my body during hypnotherapy for smoking?

Your body reaches a very relaxed state during hypnotherapy for smoking. When speaking to people who have undergone hypnosis, they will often describe feeling very relaxed and focused. In medical terms, professional describe an altered state of consciousness known as ‘hyperfocus’. And unlike what magicians and Hollywood would have you believe, when you undergo hypnotherapy for smoking or for any other purpose, you do not become unconscious. You might look as though you have fallen asleep, but you are still fully awake and aware of your surroundings. If you wanted to for whatever reason, you could stop the session at any time. You cannot be made to do anything against your will.

Does hypnotherapy for smoking work?

“Will hypnotherapy for smoking actually work for me?” It is a common and valid question. For many people, it will not be their first attempt to quit smoking and so there is a fair degree of apprehension around it. Why has smoking been so difficult to give up (until now)? As we talked about earlier, it is because smoking is not under your conscious control. Most of the cigarettes you smoke in a day will be habit, controlled by your individual triggers- not to get your nicotine fix.

So, will hypnotherapy for smoking work for you? Yes. Works for the large majority of people, because it addresses the psychological triggers that NRTs do not. It is a completely safe long-term solution for quitting smoking cigarettes for good. There are numerous published studies that back hypnotherapy for smoking up as being more effective than other methods of quitting smoking. What’s the catch? You, personally, have to want the results. Hypnotherapy for smoking might not be a good option for you if you:

  • aren’t ready to quit
  • you’re trying to quit because somebody told you to, or for their sake
  • or you feel that you should quit but you really rather would not.

What does hypnotherapy for smoking cost?

Smoking cigarettes is not something that you need to continue to live with. A small investment in hypnotherapy for smoking will cost you substantially less than the outrageous financial and non-financial costs of continuing to smoke. If you consider it with an open mind (no pun intended!), smoking has probably not only cost you thousands upon thousands of dollars in physical money, but also experiences, friends, and possibly even your dignity at one point or another. Whilst you obviously couldn’t put a price on the non-tangible things, if you’ve been a smoker for 10 years that smokes a pack of 25 cigarettes a day, you have probably spent more than $100,000 on smoking over the years! Your hypnotherapy will not cost you anywhere near this much. Probably the cost of a few packets of smokes.
