Hypnotism & Hypnotherapy, Hampshire - Mr David Reid
Stopping smoking is one of the things Hypnotherapist are most often asked to help people with. It’s actually become a little less so in recent years as more people have stopped, leaving less people who still need to.
Why d’you think all those people have stopped then? (I was one of those people, by the way, I used to smoke about 60 a day – Senior Service plain)
Are they all broke and can’t afford the fags? No – those who’ve stopped have more money than before. Not only that, but they can spend it on whatever they really like, and not on something that’s controlling them.
Are they all stupid? Well, approximately 79% (men) or 80% (women) of adults don’t smoke. That means that around 20 or 21% still do – it varies a bit across the age groups. Logic and mathematics would indicate that there are more people right than wrong in the 79 or 80%, don’t you think?
The latest figures (2010) I have available tell me that 64% of people who still smoke would like to stop. Why d’you think Nicorette products and the like are so heavily advertised? They’re making a fortune out of you. (Admittedly a lot less than the cigarette companies do though!)
Those same figures also tell me that the average smoker smokes 12 or 13 cigarettes a day. At that level you can do yourself significant damage. I could put pictures and videos on this site that would scare the living daylights out of you, of damage caused to smokers lips, gums, teeth, neck, cheeks and heart, all attributable to smoking.
You thought it was just lungs, did you? Oh, no.
However, I don’t put those pictures up as I want you to keep reading, not terrify you into switching off. And I’m not going to bang on about the health benefits of stopping either – you already know them, right?
Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways of treatment for stopping smoking. Cigarette smoking involves both a physical addiction to nicotine and a psychosocial habit, so effective help typically includes components that address BOTH of these factors. You don’t get that with just, for example, nicotine patches.
A good Hypnotherapist can build features in to the treatment that address both sides of the problem, and tailor the treatment specifically to YOU, which is another thing patches, inhalers and the like can’t do. They have their place (and their price), of course, and I wouldn’t say they don’t help, at least a bit.
Some people can stop smoking after just one Hypnotherapy session. With others, it can be more.
Now, just how many Hypnotherapy sessions do you think it’ll take YOU to stop?
