Have you tried to quit smoking using nicotine patches without success?
Have you wondered how to quit smoking using other methods?
If so, let me show you how hypnotherapy could help you quit smoking.
The reason hypnotherapy is so successful in helping you quit smoking is, like all habits, the smoking habit is controlled by the unconscious mind. Hypnotherapy works with the unconscious mind to change your behaviours. Hypnotherapy deals with the underlying psychological triggers that cause you to smoke.
With the average cost of a packet of cigarettes costing about £10, smoking just one packet a day will cost you nearly £3600 a year. It’s a well-known fact that smoking is dangerous and is linked to cancer, stroke and heart disease. Even with these dangers to health, 17% of the UK population still smoke. The health dangers are not only to your life, but it can have a negative effect on those living around you too.
Common smoking-related illnesses
Smoking increases the risk of developing many smoking-related illnesses, such as:
- cancer e.g. lung, mouth and throat

How can hypnotherapy help me quit smoking?
It is important to understand why you smoke. Do you find yourself smoking when you are anxious? Hypnotherapy is a great therapy for dealing with anxiety. Many people find that they gain weight when they try to stop smoking. Again hypnotherapy is highly effective in helping people lose weight.
It is also important to understand why you want to quit smoking. Do you want to quit smoking for yourself or are you trying to give up because of pressure from others? If you are not fully committed and ready to give up smoking then it will always be an uphill struggle. Unless you are doing it for yourself, then there is a less chance of success and more chance of feeling like a failure.
Hypnotherapy breaks the negative behaviours and thought patterns behind your smoking habit. If you do not deal with these negative thought patterns, then you are not dealing with the underlying causes for your addiction. Breaking an addiction is not easy, especially if you have been a smoker for a long time. But help is at hand. Hypnotherapy helps you establish different routines and changes your perception of cigarettes. It allows you to enter a deep state of relaxation, where your unconscious mind is more receptive to new ways of thinking and open to change. That is why hypnotherapy can be so effective in helping you quit smoking.
