Smoking Cessation with
So you made it this far and you want
to see what is in store for you if
you are accepted into the program.
If you are beginning to get the idea
I pull out all the stops when it comes to helping people become smoke free you
would be right. Well let
me throw a few questions out at you and you must be honest with yourself and
fight off the urge nicotine has to make you answer differently. You canít lie to
1) I am ready to quit.
2) My health not as good as it could be
if I did not smoke.
3) The cost of Hypnotherapy to break
the habit is not a issue, I know when I quit the money will quickly be
4) My family, friends, coworkers wish I
5) I can find better things to do with
the money I now spend on smoking.
6) I agree whole heartedly when other suggest that I quit, but it is beyond my means.
7) Because smokers are a minority, It
seems now smoking may be slowing my climb up the ladder of success.
If you have answered "NO" to any of the above, then in your mind you are not ready quit and should come back when you are ready.
The method I prefer to use requires 4
The one session method used by some Hypnotist's can break the mental addiction
but does little or nothing for the physical addiction to nicotine. With each
session you are slowly weaned off nicotine. The other advantage to the 4
sessions is we work together to keep other habit's that may pop up in check. I
am sure you have heard people say "I will get fat if I quit." This only happens
if you let it. Your goal is to quit a habit, not replace it with another.
Typically the success rate for this method is much higher than all the other
methods. I also avoid using a one size fits all therapy. As every person has
different likes and dislikes, so is the same with nicotine addiction. As said
above there are several common triggers with smokers, but the 100% match is
uncommon. Discovering the personal triggers of each person and removing them is
key to success.
