Quit Smoking

Over the last few years the stigma attached to smoking has increased. You only have to go into any bar or restaurant, or see the “No Smoking” signs all over public transport, to know that society wants you to stop smoking. It’s big and there is huge pressure.

You know the health risks and your doctor may advise you to stop smoking due to a current or potential illness. Even if he or she doesn’t directly advise you to stop smoking, the waiting rooms of every practice will be littered with literature about the latest methods to stop smoking and the dangers if you don’t. It is understood that smokers cost the National Health Service millions each year. So the medical profession wants you to stop smoking.  Your doctor may even be suggesting that you contact a Hypnotherapist to stop smoking.  The medical profession has now recognized that Hypnotherapy to quit smoking is one of the most successful methods.

And people are stopping smoking in the thousands, people throughout the UK are stopping and people are stopping smoking in Cheshire today.  People are giving up smoking in the UK today although the expression “giving up smoking” is somewhat misleading as you only “give up” something important and possibly pleasurable. Why is this distinction so significant?

There are now adverts on TV designed specifically to make parents feel guilty about their habit. They show young vulnerable children talking to camera about their fears of losing a parent due to smoking. So if would seem that our children want us to stop smoking.

You may tell yourself “Why should I let big brother tell me how to live my life?” Or that “you have paid taxes and national insurance contributions for years and anyway you know people who smoke that lived to be 100.” Or you may be just waiting for the right time to stop smoking. After the holidays, after the interview, when you have less stress in your life.

But these are all excuses for not stopping smoking now. The real reason you are delaying is fear.

  • Will you be able to keep in control?
  • How will you handle stress?
  • How will you cope with the trauma of giving up your addiction?
  • How will you break the habit?
  • And most importantly, will you succeed?

One important thing to remember that being a smoker has made you very strong willed! This is where psychotherapy combined with hypnosis steps in and leads you on the road to success of being free of your addiction. Hypnosis for stopping smoking is hugely pleasurable and can be very successful. You will be in very capable and compassionate hands.

Over a period of two to four sessions working with you as an individual you will be transformed into a happy and positive non-smoker.  It will be obvious from the onset of your first consultation that you are working with a professional qualified stop smoking hypnotherapist.  In this respect you will feel confident and optimistic about your success having taken the journey and made the commitment to choose hypnotherapy to stop smoking.
