Stop Smoking Hypnosis : How and Why It Works


Stop smoking Hypnotherapy is the most effective way to quit smoking. There are so many options available; patches, gum, inhalers, and of course willpower. There is a lot to be said for these methods but hypnotherapy is the best option. When we start smoking we make a conscious choice to do it. Overtime it becomes subconscious, no longer about how we look or whether everyone else is doing it, it’s just something we do, like eating and drinking, it’s feels natural.

That’s why quitting feels unnatural; we cannot comprehend not doing it.

But What, Exactly, Are These Hypnotherapists Doing?

Quitting is hard because we try to quit consciously but the habit still exists in our subconscious mind. Even when using patches or gum, we are still using willpower. Stop smoking hypnosis is effective because it bypasses the conscious mind and allows positive suggestions full access to the subconscious. You have the option to start in a professional setting or by yourself, either way the principal is the same.

In the professional setting you sit opposite the Hypnotherapy. They might start by asking why you want to stop, how long you’ve been smoking for and if you’re really ready to stop. Stop smoking hypnosis only works if you feel 100% ready to quit. If there is the slightest hint that you want to keep smoking it will not work.

So Why Is Quitting Smoking So Difficult?

The Hypnotherapy will guide you into a hypnotic state, it is like being between sleep and awake. Once in this state you are completely receptive to the hypnotist’s voice. They will give you suggestions like ‘you are happy as a nonsmoker’ or ‘you are free and more active as a nonsmoker’. Once you are back in a state of alertness you will feel calm and relaxed like you’ve just woken from a nap.

You can continue having sessions in stop smoking hypnosis with a therapist or go on with self-hypnosis. You should be able to get a CD recording of the session. The best times to listen to it are first thing in the morning and last thing at night, because you’re at your most relaxed. Don’t worry if you fall asleep while listening, you’ve dozed off with the suggestions going into your subconscious; it’s taking care of itself.

So Why Is Quitting Smoking So Difficult?

You might choose to start stop smoking hypnosis with self-hypnosis. This is the cheaper option as you only pay a one-off fee if purchasing a CD or download. It also means you don’t have to rely on anyone to guide you and you won’t have to answer anyone’s questions.

You can also use your own suggestions. Remember to focus on what you want not on what you don’t want; for example; ‘I am happy and breathing better’ not ‘I want to stop smoking’, one is positive and the other is negative. To keep yourself relaxed and focused visualize a place that makes you feel good.

With self-hypnosis you are doing exactly what you would in a Hypnotherapy professional session, but you are starting by yourself. Don’t worry if this sounds daunting, you have the assurance of knowing you understand the process. Visit this page:
