Most smokers have experienced it more than once - several weeks down the road to quitting for good, then...One slip, perhaps telling yourself that one cigarette won’t really do any harm, or perhaps accepting that cigarette without even thinking about it.. …. and all that effort is wasted, all those good intentions and resisted cravings spiral down the drain and for what? A few weeks off the cigarettes? And then comes the inevitable question “Why did I do it?”
Well the answer to this question is because addiction is very clever and it works at a subconscious level. So however strong your conviction is to start with, addiction waits until you are at a 'low' point, and then strikes and suddenly you find yourself making up the most incredibly creative reasons for why it's OK to have 'just one'.
There is a profound difference between a smoker that has stopped smoking and a non-smoker. The smoker courageously resists having a cigarette, while the non-smoker couldn't think of anything worse than smoking. You've probably heard of those people who quit smoking 10 years ago and still say "Every time I have a beer I still want a cigarette" - if you are trying to stop smoking that is a terrifying prospect!
But it simply means that they only quit smoking at a conscious level - that is they decided to stop, and stopped. Subconsciously, smoking is still an attractive prospect for them. But they all miss one vital component - the subconscious mind.
There has never been a better time to quit and there has never been a more successful way to quit by addressing both the physiological aspects and the psychological aspects of smoking! You can stop smoking in just one or two sessions, regardless of how long you have smoked or how many cigarettes you smoke. Hypnotherapy has been scientifically proven to be the most efficient and cost effective way to stop smoking. Unlike patches, inhalers, gum or medication, hypnotherapy works directly with the subconscious mind to help break the ‘habit of smoking’, permanently. As smoking encompasses both a chemical addiction and a psychological dependency, I use a combination of therapies to thoroughly tackle both aspects of the habit, enabling you to live the healthy life you deserve, free from addiction.
