Are you struggling to stop smoking?


Break the habit, stp smoking

Stop struggling with stopping smoking. If you want to stop smoking, you can do it with the right help.

But before you seek that help, consider the benefits of stopping smoking and why you want to stop smoking.

Do it for yourself.

Is this you?

You are a hard-working person. You are probably quite intelligent and have lots of knowledge and skills, but you don’t think you have.

You have been smoking for several years, and you want to stop smoking now. Maybe you have been contemplating stopping smoking for quite a while now.

You may have tried already. Perhaps you have used nicotine patches, chewed gum or even been to see your doctor about stopping smoking, but you don’t seem to achieve your biggest desire; that’s to stop smoking for good.

Now you are looking for help.

Do you think and feel like this?

  • Stuck.

So you tried the other help but have struggled with sticking to it. You keep thinking about stopping but don’t do anything.

  • Scared.

Frightened that stopping smoking will be too difficult and you won’t achieve it

You still want to stop smoking but feel that it’s difficult.

  • Confused.

You want to stop smoking, but you might have been told to expect cravings, so you keep thinking about them. The more you think about cigarettes and the cravings, the more you want a cigarette, so you give in and have a cigarette. That makes you feel terrible.

  • Annoyed.

You might get frustrated or angry with yourself. You wonder why you haven’t done it before as it’s a high-cost activity.

So you tell yourself that you will do it next week. However, you are getting good at procrastinating now. There is always something more important to do.

  • Worried.

You worry that you might fail.

You might feel hopeless, so smoke twice as much.

You want to quit but don’t, so you feel like a failure. You might even pretend to enjoy a cigarette and tell people you like smoking. But do you? Have you noticed that you smell of cigarette smoke?

  • Too busy

You want to stop smoking, but your busy lifestyle gets in the way. You are just too busy with work, friends and family issues.

You might have friends or family who smoke around you, and they don’t help.

Alternatively, you may have people around you who don’t smoke, and they tell you all the horror stories of dying of cancer etc. But you continue to smoke.

  • Can’t relax

You struggle to relax and feel that cigarettes help you to relax, but do they? If this were true, the more you smoke, the more you should relax.

Maybe you are struggling to sleep.

But today is the day you can become determined to quit because today, you can take action.

Stop smoking with the help of hypnosis.

You are not alone. Many people have these thoughts and feelings related to stopping smoking. They feel the tension. They want to quit but somehow can’t, like you.

This often results in people turning to hypnotherapy to stop smoking, as hypnosis has helped many people over the years to stop smoking.

The benefits of learning to stop smoking this way are:

  • It is a natural way of learning to rid yourself of the habit.
  • It’s fast. One or two sessions may be all you need.
  • It’s relaxing.
  • There are no drugs, other aids or nicotine replacement products needed.
  • It can be easily accessible through online hypnotherapy.

Furthermore, many hypnotherapists can provide you with more facts and tips about stopping smoking. Some hypnotherapists use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy with hypnotherapy as this may give a better result.

But for the best success when deciding to stop smoking with hypnotherapy, you need:

  • To be fully committed to change and stop smoking.
  • Are prepared to make some lifestyle changes.
  • Appreciate the money that you will save by investing in hypnotherapy.

Does hypnosis help people to stop smoking?

There has been lots of research carried out looking at success rates with hypnosis. Some studies say there is insufficient evidence to show that hypnosis is better than other methods. However, this may be because some of the studies are small. Nevertheless, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy combined will help more.

However, a  recent systematic review of previous studies on smoking cessation with hypnosis concluded that hypnosis is superior to nicotine replacement therapy.

Although both males and females can quit, one study in 2005 by Green, Lynn and Montgomery found a slightly higher chance of males being able to stop smoking with hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy online to stop smoking.

Hypnotherapy delivered online is much easier to access the right service now through online hypnotherapy.

You probably only need one or two sessions.

You can choose the right time for you and find the right hypnotherapist because you have a choice.

Some people might think that online hypnosis isn’t as effective, but there is no evidence that some people prefer to be in their own homes where they can relax deeply with hypnosis.
