QUIT SMOKING HYPNOSIS

We all know by now that smoking kills you, but addiction is hard to kick even though we know that we are poisoning our bodies with a chemical combo of Ammonia, Carbon Monoxide, Formaldehyde, Pesticide and Arsenic. Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health ailments and diseases – but the habit does not only harm the smoker’s health, it can also have a negative impact on the people around them. Children and babies living with people who smoke are vulnerable to many health problems via passive smoking. A great number of people find Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking. The thoughts and behaviours the smoker holds is often what prevents them from successfully giving up.

Can hypnosis help you quit smoking?
Some studies have found that hypnosis is over 3 times more effective to help people stop smoking than nicotine patches or gum, and 15 times more effective than trying to quit smoking cigarettes with willpower alone.
Nicotine is addictive, but it’s the mental habit that makes it challenging for most people to stop smoking. That’s why hypnosis is such an effective way to stop.

Below is a conversion about what to expect on habit and nicotine and more:

The Habit Pattern

Much of smoking addiction is a mental attachment to the regular routine of smoking. We at Harmony HEALING Center discuss your daily routine and the associations you make with smoking.

Previous Attempts

I will learn what has helped or not helped you quit smoking in the past to devise an approach specific to you. If you quit previously then picked up smoking again, we will discuss that experience. 

Nicotine Addiction

We will discuss key points concerning the effects of nicotine. While I believe the habit pattern is a much greater obstacle to quitting smoking than nicotine addiction, I find that understanding how nicotine really works helps most people to let go of it more easily. 

During Hypnosis

Relaxation of general stress and anxiety

Hypnosis is deeply relaxing. We at Harmony HEALING Center help you to enter and maintain a highly relaxed state of trance for a duration sufficient to trigger the parasympathetic relaxation response, which clears away stress, giving you the best possible starting point for success.

Imagery and Suggestive Therapeutics

In hypnosis the critical faculty of the conscious mind relaxes, allowing the unconscious to be influenced by imagery and suggestions. I use a variety of methods to free your thoughts and feelings from the smoking habit.

Avoiding Substitute Behaviors

Many people are concerned that they will replace smoking with another habit, especially eating. My goal is to help you quit smoking by feeling relaxed and in control without the restlessness that causes people to substitute other behaviors.

Tools

In hypnosis, and sometimes after emerging from hypnosis, we prepare you with quick tools to manage the acute stress of life’s difficult situations, thoughts, and emotions without cigarettes. For many people these responses are immediately or soon become unconscious and automatic.

After our session

We at Harmony Healing center provide written and recorded resources for relaxation and stress management. and follow up with you at intervals to assure your long-term success. With personal guidance and support, you really can stop the smoking habit.

Will I quit smoking gradually or all at once?

Very few people ask me to help them reduce their habit gradually. I find that people who are really ready to quit smoking almost always want to stop completely.
When stopping smoking, it is best to get nicotine out of your body as soon as possible. Reducing smoking gradually is not easier than stopping at once. It only drags it out and causes you to focus on the habit even more. It is best to stop completely when you are feeling motivated to do it. Get it over with, and let hypnosis help you adjust quickly to feeling like a nonsmoker.

Does it matter how long I have smoked or how much I smoke?

I have not observed any correlations between duration or quantity of smoking and responsiveness to hypnosis. I see people who have smoked for thirty or more years succeed just as easily as those who have smoked for a decade.
Heavy smokers who smoke between half a pack and two packs per day can succeed just as easily as those who smoke only a few. In fact, some heavy smokers sometimes quit more easily than occasional smokers. In either case, I tailor the process to your specific behaviors.

Do you want to be the best version of yourself ?

We take a modern approach to helping you be the best version of yourself and specialized in mental care and support for adults, couples, children, and groups.
