Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking

Hypnotherapy to Stop Smoking the effective way


Finding the willpower to stop smoking can be tough. There’s no doubt that your life would be better without cigarettes. By using hypnotherapy, you can be back in control of your life instead of the cigarettes controlling you.

Smoking is rooted in the subconscious mind, and it doesn’t matter how much the conscious mind wants to quit; the subconscious mind still wants to smoke, this causes conflict between the two, leading to the stop-start-stop-start cycle.

A smoker’s subconscious will have good reasons to smoke, because it’s trying to recapture the comfort, feeling good, sense of belonging, identity and control.

The subconscious only wants the best for you, it genuinely believes things will be better if you smoke and that it really does relieve stress and makes other situations better e.g. smoking with alcohol, a cup of coffee or after dinner. 

Even though, logically, you know this isn’t right, it is unhealthy, costs a lot of money and is life-limiting. Science shows your subconscious (your feelings part of the mind) is far more powerful than your conscious (logical part of the mind). As humans, up to 80% of our decisions are emotional rather than logical. This is why going cold turkey has been the least effective way.

Smoking is responsible for more than five million deaths worldwide every year.

Smoking is one of the biggest causes of death and illness in the UK. Every year around 78,000 people in the UK die from smoking, with many more living with debilitating smoking-related illnesses.

Cigarette smoke contains more than 7000 chemicals. Hundreds are toxic and can damage the human body.

80 of the chemicals are known to cause cancer e.g. lung, mouth and throat, heart disease, gum disease and infertility. 

Hypnotherapy to stop smoking is very successful

Hypnotherapy to stop smoking is considered to be one of the most successful solutions available. However, it is important to understand why you want to stop smoking in the first place. Is it the pressure from others? Because if it is and you are not fully committed, then it will be a struggle. However, if it is something you are doing for yourself, then the chances are that you will kick this habit for good.
