It is not easy to quit smoking. Smoking is one of the most difficult habits to put down and it takes a serious commitment to be successful because even the smallest thing can re-trigger it.
The Smoking Problem
Amazingly, even with all of the bad press that smoking is getting, tobacco use is increasing world-wide and with it the numbers of deaths directly attributable to smoking. Last year there were 11 million such deaths. In this century it is projected that we will likely have 1 Billion deaths attributable to smoking.
For those who want to escape this terrible addiction, more and more programs are being developed that promise an easier and faster way to recover from the smoking addiction. Many people will try these programs and fail. They become frustrated, not believing that they will ever be able to overcome the addiction and they resign themselves to smoking and simply push away their concerns about the health problems associated with smoking.
Bet then sometimes they learn about hypnosis and self-hypnosis as a way to quit smoking. Hypnosis programs have proven to be the most effective means to quit smoking. The reason for this is simple, it deals with the part of you that generates the cravings for and addiction to the nicotine, your subconscious mind. By communicating directly with your subconscious you can by-pass the desires and over eating associated with quitting.
Hypnosis therapy to quit smoking
If you go to a hypnotist for a quit smoking session he will likely also teach you self-hypnosis so that you can treat yourself everyday and keep the full force of the suggestions that you are a non-smoker always with you. You will find that there are no side-effects, no moodiness, restlessness, and no irrational thoughts. Hypnosis is the ideal treatment for quitting smoking.
In hypnosis or self-hypnosis you will enter a relaxed, altered state of consciousness. Thereupon the hypnotist will be able to speak directly to your subconscious mind and give suggestions so that when you awakened you will have like a non-smoker. You may have seen stage hypnotists who get people in front of an audience and get them to bark like dogs, and act like a chicken, and fully embarrass themselves. How much more important it would be to get them to have as non-smokers. This is the true power of hypnosis.
Before you enter into hypnosis as a treatment to stop smoking you need to decide that this is really something that you want to rid yourself of. You see the other thing about hypnosis is you will not do things that you do not want to do. In these cases you may stop for only a brief time before starting again. By committing to yourself that you are ready to stop, with the help of hypnosis you will, and you'll do it easily and quickly. Yes, you really can safely and easily rid yourself of this terrible, killer addiction using hypnosis and self-hypnosis.
