Hypnotherapy can help you STOP SMOKING
How do I know hypnosis will work for me? You already know intellectually that smoking is dangerous to your health. You have all the frightening facts and negative information, but still you continue. Why don't you stop?
Myth No.1 - I'll gain weight. Many people who have used hypnosis actually end up reducing weight after becoming non-smokers! You see, here's the predicament that most smokers often find themselves in who have tried to quit "cold turkey" (i.e., without any help): it is called a psychological "double bind". They hear over and over from others who have tried the cold turkey method that quitting smoking causes weight gain, so when they stop smoking they are scared of weight gain and either continue skipping meals like a smoker does or substitute junk food for cigarettes. The hitch is this: skipping meals or eating fatty junk foods with too many refined carbohydrates in products made from white sugar or white flour causes weight gain! So, without adequate preparation, if you expect to gain weight you probably will. But it is not a cosmic law, you do have a choice. Substituting healthy food and moderate exercise for smoking are the best ways to boost your metabolism and keep your weight in check.
Myth No.2 - I can't stop because I'm addicted. This is simply untrue. I have helped 2 packets a day smokers of 40 years stop. (The word "can't" is the problem here.) In fact, in 1997, secret tobacco industry documents revealed that the amount of nicotine found in most brands was not addictive enough, people were still able to stop smoking. So research was conducted at a lab in Oakland, CA on how to genetically alter the tobacco plant to produce even more nicotine! It's the "Addiction Model" that defeats the will, not the substance itself. You do have a choice in the matter. Often new non-smokers mistake their natural fluctuations in blood sugar and unfamiliar cravings for "withdrawal symptoms", because for quite some time they have substituted nicotine (an appetite suppressant and stimulant) for the normal craving for food! (Especially during coffee breaks.) Low blood sugar causes irritability, nervousness, nausea, headaches, stomach aches, dizziness and cravings. (Ask a diabetic what it's like to have low blood sugar, and believe me, it's no picnic.) So the people who are unaware of the blood sugar issue take the easy way out and relapse because they think they are hopelessly "addicted". Stop demonising the Tobacco Industry and take responsibility for your health!
Myth No.3 - The smoking habit is more difficult to quit than heroin. Don't fool yourself. It's not because nicotine is more addictive than heroin! (What is the addictive substance in gambling?) Cigarettes are relatively cheap, legal, readily available, glamourised in movies, and easy to use. Heroin is illegal, expensive, not very glamorous, and you have to stick a needle in your arm to use it. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand why some junkies find it is easier to stop using heroin than cigarettes. The fact is, when the price of heroin goes down, the rate of heroin addiction goes up.
You already know all you need to know. Getting your subconscious mind involved is the key! It controls your habit centre; your intellect does not. Why do you think cigarette advertising is now so restricted? Advertising works on the subconscious mind! You need to get the message to your subconscious mind in a way that it can help you, not sabotage your efforts.
Hypnosis is the royal road to your powerful subconscious mind! With the help of hypnosis you can successfully become a non-smoker, focus on eating right, start exercising again, improving your overall health, begin managing your blood sugar like every other non-smoker does, and thus actually end up releasing weight as many of my clients do!
