Find Out How to Give Yourself 10 Times the Chance to Stop Smoking for Good…Risk Free by using the power of Hypnosis.
Smoking is a habit. And like all habits, it’s hard to break. Maybe you smoke in the car, or during breaks at work. Maybe you light up with a cup of coffee, or after a stressful situation. The bottom line is that smoking has become a ritual, a part of your daily life. As human beings, we love rituals, and we hate rebelling against our habits. Not only is smoking a psychological habit, it’s also a physical addiction. In fact, about 90% of smokers are clinically addicted to smoking.
Smoking provides a temporary high in the form of nicotine. Depriving your body of that nicotine fix causes physical withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. When you’re faced with both psychological and physical discomfort, no wonder it’s so hard to Stop.
The most important way to begin to stop smoking is to find out your why? Why do you want to stop smoking and why do you smoke in the first place. From the stand point of my hypnosis therapy, I can help anyone addicted to cigarettes stop smoking but only if the why is aligned properly. Notice I do not say “Quit” this is because no one wants to be a quitter so the inner mind rejects that idea but to stop is a good possibility. So what is your reason to want to stop smoking “Because I am tired of the cigarettes having control over my life” now you are truly ready to stop.
There are various steps you must take in order to stop smoking for life:
1. Have the correct reason why
2. Pass a pre screening interview for which any approved Hypnotist will conduct
3. Engage in the Pre talk or set up to be ready
4. Listen to the self help Hypnosis CD for 30 days. (Download it by clicking here)
5. Arrange a one hour hypnosis session
Many medical professionals are impressed with the results of hypnosis. In the words of Dr. Robert T. London from 2003, “Smoking cessation is an area in which hypnosis has been particularly effective. A study by Dr. Joseph Barber of the University of Washington, Seattle, for example, found that hypnotic intervention can be integrated into a treatment protocol for smoking cessation. Of 43 patients who were undergoing the protocol, 39 reported staying abstinent at follow-up, which was 6 months to 3 years after the treatment ended.”

Learning to become a non-smoker
Did you know that smoking is nothing more than a learned behavior? Today, many people actually see themselves as a ‘smoker’. However none of us were born with a cigarette in our mouths, so smoking is something that is learned. Through hypnosis a new learned behavior (i.e. the behavior of a non smoker) can be introduced to the person.
Many smokers I meet tell me they have ‘tried’ to ‘give up’ but just found it too ‘hard’. Now just by saying this, it tells me a lot.firstly, the word ‘try’ is a word that leaves room for failure and the person that uses that word already has a vision in their mind of themselves ‘failing’. How about using the words ‘will’ and ‘can’ instead? Also by the smoker telling themselves that they want to ‘give up’, it already insinuates some kind of sacrifice. The truth is there is nothing to ‘give up’ as there are no advantages to smoking. Lastly smokers that find it ‘hard’ to stop smoking usually find it ‘hard’ because they have taken on one huge ‘suggestion’ from media, family and friends, that it will be ‘hard’. What would happen if you started out with the premise that it will be ‘easy’? By thinking it’s hard you are creating your own reality a ‘self fulfilling prophecy’ if you like. The truth is that it only takes a few days for the ‘nicotine’ to leave a smokers body. After that it’s just about forming a new ‘habit’ the habit of living as a non smoker.
If I were to ask you ‘try not think of a pink elephant, really don’t think of a pink elephant’are you now thinking of a pink elephant? This is why studies have shown that ‘will’ power has only a 5% success rate (Hypnosis is 90% according to the ‘New Scientist’ magazine 1994). The person using will power is likely saying to themselves every morning ‘I don’t want to smoke today’ and ends up thinking about smoking all day. It’s much better to think about what you do want improved health, greater energy, to be fresher smelling, have more money and a longer life
Oscar winner Charlize Theron, who plays the evil queen in the upcoming film “Snow White and the Huntsman” recently kicked an evil habit of her own… smoking.
“I was highly addicted,” Theron, 36, says in the Dec. 2011 issue of Vogue. “I thought, I don’t smoke like normal people. I smoke to die.”
The South African stunner reportedly smoked up to three packs of cigarettes a day, and is rumored to have used hypnotherapy to help her kick the habit.
Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Damon have also reportedly used the therapy to give up their habits.
Amazingly, Theron looks leaner and fitter than ever, apparently having managed to avoid the weight gain typically associated with smoking cessation.
Along with kicking the habit, Charlize, a former dancer, also adopted a healthier lifestyle that includes Pilates and yoga.
