You probably know all the statistics; smoking increases your risk of over 50 serious health conditions and smoking-related illnesses account for around 114,000 UK deaths yearly. Yet despite your best efforts, you struggle to stop smoking and I bet the following common excuses for continuing, sound familiar.
In fact the most common excuse for people to light a cigarette in the first place is that it relaxes them, however, the body is far from relaxed when you smoke, with your heart racing and your nervous system more stimulated that ever. Each cigarette provides a two minute fix of the feel-good brain chemical Dopamine, but your nervous system remains agitated for around 48 hours. Your body then learns to crave this 2 minutes of relief from the agitation caused by your last cigarette and you find yourself in a vicious circle of craving, giving in, temporary relief, agitation and more craving.
And there are so many reasons why your life will improve when you quit...
So you are now currently considering whether Hypnotherapy could work for you? The good news is that a positive attitude and a real desire to stop are strong indications that Hypnotherapy will help you take control of your life and quit once and for all!
And we can achieve this in a one-off extended Smoking Cessation session, during which I will explore your smoking habit in depth and teach you a comprehensive toolkit of Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy techniques. These techniques will de-construct your old habit at a deep subconscious level, profoundly changing your beliefs and giving you the motivation to take full control of your life.
But don't just take my word for it, significant research has demonstrated the power of Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation
"Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking" - New Scientist (vol 136)
"A meta-analytic comparison of the effectiveness of smoking cessation methods" reviewed 633 separate studies (with over 71,000 participants) and clearly demonstrated that Hypnosis is three times more effective that Nicotine Replacement Therapy.
