Stop Smoking with hypnosis
Stopping smoking at this stage has probably been at the forefront of your mind for a while but you just haven’t found the right time to stop. However, the fact that you’re taking the time to look up this website means you are thinking about getting assistance to give you that ultimate push to stop smoking. To help you decide if this is the route for you, here are some of the frequently asked questions and answers about using hypnotherapy to stop smoking:
Q. What is your success rate?
A. I have an excellent success rate. I ask everyone to contact me after the session to let me know how they are getting on, and keep a record, so far it is in the high nineties.
Q. I’ve tried patches and nicotine chewing gum and they didn’t work – do you think hypnotherapy can help?
A. With patches etc. the nicotine is still getting into your system. Smoking, is a psychological addiction which is why hypnotherapy is so successful with this problem. In experiments, hypnotherapy has proven more successful than drugs, nicotine chewing gum or patches, plus there are no harmful side effects. In my opinion, the thought of stopping smoking is much harder than actually doing it, which is why people talk themselves out of it.
Q. Will I still get cravings afterwards?
A. There should be no cravings or at the very least they will be greatly dimished as the aim of hypnotherapy is to make you feel really good about being a non-smoker. Remember, the thought of a cigarette is not the same as a craving – during hypnosis I will give you suggestions that will enable you to make that distinction and replace any negative thoughts with positive and resourceful ones.
Q. I went to someone once before and it didn’t work.
A. Did you go back to them? There could be a number of reasons why it didn’t work for you – perhaps you were nervous or didn’t know what to expect? Or maybe you really weren’t ready to stop at that time. This is why I always ask my clients to contact me afterwards.
Q. Will I be able to drive afterwards?
A. You will feel perfectly normal. The only difference that hypnosis will make is: (a) you will feel more relaxed than usual and (b) you will feel really good about being a non-smoker.
