Nowadays, everyone knows that smoking is bad for your health. Even so, making the decision to quit after you’ve been smoking for a while can be challenging once addiction has begun to set in. Some people can quit easily, while others go back and forth for many years, trying but failing to break the habit.
Fortunately, hypnosis is a very effective tool for motivation and changing habits. When it comes to smoking, hypnosis is powerfully able to calm anxiety & the nicotine cravings that so often occur. Treatment gives you the motivation and confidence you need to put those cravings aside. You can allow your body time to go through withdrawal and to feel better after the need for nicotine has passed.
And then there’s also the weight gain. This is another common problem for smokers since nicotine speeds up your metabolism, and most smokers who try to quit (especially women smokers) are very worried about gaining weight. But not to worry – hypnosis can help with weight loss too, and hypnosis sessions can include work on this if weight gain has been a regular problem in your life.
Perhaps the biggest reason that people continue smoking is that the cigarette has become a comfortable friend. Quitting seems like a death has come to the family, or that someone has to completely reinvent themselves to quit successfully. Hypnosis is able to help with these problems too. Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind, which is highly involved in imagination. By engaging the subconscious in hypnosis, a person can learn to see cigarettes in a different light, and to see themselves differently too. This helps not only with the willpower to quit, to but can help you understand how you want to see yourself now that an old habit has been broken.
Hypnosis for stopping smoking can also be combined with acupuncture or Chinese herbs for the same problem. By using hypnosis to tackle dips in motivation and acupuncture to help with the withdrawal process, quitting can become very easy.
