Smoking Cessation with Hypnotherapy

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 yourself.

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 recovered.

4) My family, friends, coworkers wish I would quit.

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 sessions. 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.
