How hypnosis can help you stop 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 stop 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 of 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 help some people successfully quit smoking.

Please note: Individual results can vary. There is no guarantee that hypnotherapy will be effective in every case. For hypnotherapy to be successful you need to be open to change and fully committed.
