Quit smoking using Hypnotherapy
Thanks to media and technology, there is now so much awareness in people about the ill effects of smoking. A few days back I was doing some research for a client on the chemicals a cigarette has and this is what I found:
“Cigarette smoke contains over 7000 chemicals, including 69 known cancer causing compounds and many other toxins. There are about 600 poisonous ingredients in a single stick of cigarette, like acetone (found in nail polish remover), carbon monoxide (released in car exhaust fumes), naphthalene (an ingredient in mothballs), nicotine (used as insecticide), arsenic (used in rat poison), and a lot more. Out of these, nicotine is highly addictive.”
There are so many people who are trying so hard to quit smoking with the help of nicotine patches, gums, e-cigarettes and other medications, all of which have their own serious side effects on one’s health. Do a little research, the world wide web is full of information on the subject. But there are those who know what is at stake if they don’t leave smoking, and with strong determination, changes in eating pattern, focus on physical workout, will power and strength they successfully become non-smokers for life. Then there are those who go as far as 4 months, 6 months, sometimes even a year without smoking, but when something negative happens in their lives that they feel they won’t be able to handle or deal with, they pick up the habit again.
So let us see what really happens when you are smoking. Usually, it is a secondary gain, also referred to as negative payoff, which means “a positive benefit received indirectly through an otherwise negative behavior” (Tim Simmerman Sierra). When you are smoking, you are either trying to distract your mind FROM something, or you are trying to focus your thoughts and attention ON something, or you are filling up some sort of a void. Although what you are hoping to get or wanting to achieve is something positive, but you are using cigarette as a tool for it, which is negative. A woman once said, “In this pack of cigarettes I have 20 friends. I will be lonely if I don’t have these friends anymore. So if you’re taking them away from me, give me something else to fill that space up so I can be happy, because these friends give me happiness”.
But what if you can find that happiness within you? What if, instead of distracting your mind from something, you become strong enough to face that thing like it means nothing to you? What if your mind becomes so sharp and alert that you are easily able to focus on whatever it is you want to focus on? With such control over yourself and your mind, you won’t need a cigarette at all! And how can you have that control? Try Hypnosis. Hypnotherapy uses several powerful techniques to help you become the master of you mind. And when you are the master of your mind, quitting smoking and becoming a non-smoker for life gets really easy.
There are so many people who have used Hypnosis to beat their smoking habit, including famous people like Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears, Matt Damon and Samuel Jackson. There’s proof and stories of that all over the internet. At the age of 34 Courteney Cox used Hypnotherapy to quit smoking. If they can, you can too!
Free yourself, become a non-smoker for life with Hypnotherapy.
