Hypnosis is highly effective for quitting smoking quickly, easily and safely. In my twenty years of practicing clinical hypnotherapy I have found that most clients are able to stop smoking by hypnosis in a single session.
There are several pre-requisites for stopping smoking successfully with hypnosis.
First, you must really want to stop. Not because your partner, loved ones or children want you to stop but because you want to stop. Next, you must have a good solid reason for wanting to stop. Usually this revolves mostly around health for most people. The financial cost of smoking and the increasing unacceptability of smoking in many societies are other common factors for deciding to stop smoking.
The first step in giving up smoking is to become very clear about your current situation. Ask yourself the following set of questions.
How many cigarettes do you smoke a day? Do you smoke more on weekdays or on weekends? Are there days when you don’t smoke at all?
When did you start smoking? Why did you start? Are those original reasons for deciding to smoke still valid? Probably mot otherwise you wouldn’t have decided to stop. It is important to become conscious of the changes in your environment and the changes that have taken place within you as a person since you first started smoking.
Your unconscious mind is always paying attention to everything you think, say and do. As you become aware that your original reasons for smoking are no longer valid your unconscious mind gets the message too.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how determined are you to stop?
Do you have family and friends that will support you in your choice?
