Hypnotherapy To Quit Smoking
Updated: Jun 26, 2019
Despite a large population of smokers wanting to quit (around 80%), very few of them manage to do so successfully due to the addictive nature of cigarettes.
It’s no surprise so many individuals are looking to kick the bad habit, with the huge list of negatives that come as a result of smoking tobacco. Firstly, and most importantly, the chemicals inside each “ciggie” are extremely harmful to your health. On average, smokers die 10 years earlier than non smokers! That’s 10 years you could have enjoyed spending time with your loved ones, but instead lost it to an expensive stick.
That brings us to the next point. Cigarettes are very expensive: around £10.40 per pack in the United Kingdom. Let’s say you have only 3 packs a week. For some this figure may be closer to around 14, but let’s say 3. Purchasing 3 times a week at the price of £10.40 per pack generate a nice £31.20 for retailer. Below we have inserted a table showing that, instead of wasting this £31.20 per week on cigarettes and placing it into a savings account instead, after 10 years you will be nicely rewarded for your efforts.
That’s right, with the power of compound interest you have saved up almost £6,525.53 in just 3 years!
So the question is this: would you rather smoke your life away or save the money as future financial security? The answer seems clear to us.
We have talked about the issues that come with a tobacco addiction, but we do understand that addictions are very difficult to overcome. For many the withdrawal symptoms are too extreme and despite trying their hardest to knock the habit, they fall short when the withdrawals kick in.
So how can we make it easier for ourselves to eliminate cigarettes from our lives for good?
Let’s talk about hypnotherapy…
Experts in the field of hypnosis often help people with targets to improve their health or to alter the way they think. People attend hypnotherapy sessions to, for example, eliminate addictions from their lives, assist in the weight loss process, to get rid of any fears or worries, to relieve stress and much more.
If you are considering hypnosis we assure you it is not how it looks in the media. Often times hypnosis is represented by an individual looking to entertain an audience. Putting someone in a trance and suggesting they dance like a chicken is one of many examples you may have come across. In a professional hypnotherapy setting, you will not be asked to perform silly actions, nor will you have to watch into a swinging pendulum. Stage hypnosis is far different from hypnotherapy, and, if you are hesitant, we suggest you give hypnosis a try before making your mind up about its efficiency.
What actually does happen in a hypnotherapy session?
Hypnotic inductions start the session by moving your mind into a trance like state. This is where you are put in to a state of half consciousness, and can be undisturbed by external stimuli. If you have ever daydreamed, you have already been in a form of trance. Research suggests that, whilst under this altered state of awareness, you will experience higher levels of brain activity. Hypnotic induction can be achieved within a guided session or with bespoke recordings, also known as self-hypnosis (more on that later).
Once in the trance state, you will be introduced to ‘hypnotic suggestions. What is a hypnotic suggestion? It is simply a statement to help amplify an earlier message, or to encourage you to achieve your goals. In this case (How to stop smoking), the hypnotherapist will amplify the negative connotations associated with smoking, and the health and financial benefits you will receive as a result of eliminating the habit.
All the information we collect from everyday life is sent to our brains. Our brain then creates an impression of the data it has received. It takes your feelings and emotions from each event and creates a response. If for example you are feeling stress or anxiety, your brain’s immediate reaction may be to light up a cigarette. This is what makes quitting smoking so difficult. Your brain has identified smoking as a stress reliever, so it will jump to the conclusion that you want to smoke whenever you feel this emotion.
Hypnotherapy helps your brain to change this automatic response, and better your chances of adopting a smoke-free lifestyle.
But can hypnotherapy help you?
Hypnotherapy can be an excellent tool to help assist the process of giving up your addictive habits. This is backed up by plenty of evidence that shows the success rate of such practices.
However, you will receive the best results if you are already wanting to quit but are just struggling to take action. If you smoke every day and don’t want to change that anytime soon, then hypnotherapy may not be for you. However, for those who are seeking help to quit smoking, we recommend hypnotherapy as a possible solution.
