HYPNOTHERAPY SOUTH WEST STOP SMOKING The Addiction of Smoking

Have you tried: Patches, gums, inhalers, cutting down, cold turkey?


If you have, they probably haven’t worked.



The physical addiction of nicotine is a very minor part of the problem - so patches,  are  ineffective. About 6% give up with Nicotine Replacement Therapy


The mental addiction of smoking is a very major part - that’s where hypnosis comes in. Over 95% give up with my Smoking Cessation programme.


This is why, for most people,  gums, patches and inhalers  are not able to stop the habit, because the problem is a mental one and lies within the inner closed part of our mind , known as the subconscious. Mental programming. And we construct these programs in the mind through habitual repetition. If we do the same thing often enough, that thought pattern then gets imprinted in the mind. Then it goes onto ‘automatic’ and starts to control us!


The subconscious responds to circumstances around us. Example: Perhaps you find that whenever the kettle goes on, you ‘automatically’ reach for your packet of cigarettes, and without hardly realising it, you find yourself sat down with a cuppa in one hand and a cigarette in the other.


So, what happened? The act of putting the kettle on activated a ‘light up trigger’. These triggers are unique to each smoker. Another common one might be - after a meal or when you jump into the car. A ‘light up trigger’ reminds you, with the feeling of a craving, that when you do this, you have a cigarette.


Final thought: How long can you go without a cigarette? A hour? A couple?


                       OK. So, how many hours do you sleep?


So, it is fairly easy to go that long without a smoke . Why? Because you don’t have any ’light up triggers’ until the morning.
