Can Hypnotherapy Help With Quitting Smoking?
Quitting Smoking: Those who are looking to kick the unhealthy and expensive habit of smoking may have tried every single remedy possible. From gum to electric cigarettes nothing can quite stop the cravings you get after mealtimes or first thing in the morning. More and more people have been turning to hypnotherapy to help them give up, but does it actually work for those who want to quit?
Convincing yourself and your subconscious
Using treatment such as nicotine patches or gum can be extremely ineffective because you are still supplying your body with nicotine. Although you may feel you really want to give up, the constant intake of nicotine into your system will always make you think you may start smoking again at any time.
Using hypnotherapy is the perfect way of convincing yourself and your subconscious mind that you truly want to give up this habit for good, which is why it has such a high success rate.
Those moments when you would normally reach for a cigarette, such as after dinner or when drinking alcohol can be completely eliminated with hypnotherapy as opposed to being made worse by nicotine patches or gum. Your mind is fully aware that you have given up and do not want to smoke, so you will never want to look at a cigarette again!
Cut down and quit
Unless you are smoking less than 6 cigarettes a day, a good hypnotherapist should understand that this is a serious addiction you are trying to kick. Bearing this in mind, treatment should involve you cutting down before fully quitting in one go.
By going through the reasons why you smoke, the times that you smoke the most, and how you started smoking in the first place, hypnotherapy can then aim to cut down those moments when you crave a cigarette the most. Once you have started to cut down to a minimal level, where it is no longer seen as a serious addiction, it will be so easy to give up altogether!
Picking the right hypnotherapist
Not all smoking cessation hypnotherapy is the same, it is important to bear this in mind when looking for someone to help you stop smoking. Various hypnotherapists will have different techniques, methods, and success rates.
Picking the right hypnotherapist can give you the confidence to give up smoking quickly and without any stress whatsoever. Look for those who understand the extremity of your habit as well as those who appreciate relapses may happen. Just one single cigarette after giving up can send you straight back to square one, whereas a good hypnotherapist will be able to eliminate this problem completely.
If you are serious about quitting smoking then don’t try (and fail) with every other treatment in the book. They can be expensive remedies that do not really work, so cut straight to the method that does work and book in a hypnotherapy appointment. You will be so impressed with the results, as well as feeling healthier, happier, and a lot better off financially!
