Quit Smoking with Hypnotherapy

Quitting smoking is the single most important thing you can do for your health, and for the health of those around you, yet most people find it difficult to quit smoking through will power alone.

Nicotine addiction is both physical (cravings and withdrawal symptoms) and psychological – (the habit of smoking, the behaviours surrounding smoking, and the unconscious beliefs that support nicotine addiction).

Hypnotherapy is a safe, powerful and effective tool to support you in quitting.

Hypnotherapy addresses the psychological triggers and unconscious motivations that drive the smoking habit, such as smoking when having a coffee, when taking a break, after a meal, when having a drink or in response to stress.

Hypnotherapy also asks you to imagine, visualise and make real the known dangers of smoking, including illness, coughing, difficulty breathing, smelling offensive and more, having a negative impact on the health of those around you, experiencing social discrimination etc.

Hypnotherapy can help you develop a new mindset in relation to smoking, so that it no longer appeals to you, and can be highly effective in supporting you to break your addiction, once and for all.

Even if you have smoked for many years, quitting TODAY can bring immediate and long term health benefits, including:

*Reduced likelihood of disease and premature death. We all know the risks associated with smoking. Quitting today will improve your overall health and add years to your life.

*Higher energy levels – smoking increases the levels of carbon monoxide – we all know poison- in your blood, which impairs your lung function and reduces the energy available to your muscles, leading to fatigue, loss of energy and decline in brain function. Quitting today will allow your heart, lungs and muscles to function more effectively, giving you more energy and a renewed lease on life.

*Younger looking appearance – smoking accelerates skin aging and promotes wrinkles. quitting today can reverse these effects and allow your skin to repair itself over time.

*Better breathing – your lung capacity can increase by as much as 10% within one year of quitting. This will allow you to perform everyday tasks without becoming short of breath. Your cough will disappear, your risk of asthma, bronchitis and emphysema will reduce, and your will be able to exercise without experiencing shortness of breath.

*Reduced stress – whilst many associate smoking with alleviating stress, the research is clear – smoking increases stress levels, and drives chronic disease. Quitting today is the single most important step you will take for your overall health and wellbeing.

*Financial benefits – all the money that you currently spend on smoking could be used to finance a holiday, peruse a hobby, upgrade your car or whatever else you desire.
