Hypnosis is one of the most effective ways of giving up smoking
Hypnosis is one of the most effective ways of giving up smoking according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower it turns out counts for very little”.

As most smokers are well aware and appreciate the dangers of smoking to their health, smoking can be seen as an emotional reaction or as maladaptive behaviour, which many will see as a comfort.However the recovery of the body from the ill effects of smoking begins and continues almost immediately after that last cigarette.For those who wish to become permanent non smokers, they may like to ask themselves the following
“WHO AM I THAT LETS SMOKING BULLY ME?” or “WHO AM I THAT ACCEPTS THE ACTIONS OF THE FALSE FRIEND THAT SMOKING IS?” or “WHO AM I THAT CONTINUES TO SMOKE WHEN I’VE SAID I AM GOING TO QUIT”
The degree of willpower necessary to stop smoking is the same degree of willpower necessary to stop us walking in motorway traffic. Freedom from smoking is achievable through hypnosis. However, the client must have the desire to quit and be ready to do so. The therapist will discuss with you and help identify the real reasons why you smoke and ways in which hypnosis can help you lose your desire for the taste, feel and smell of smoking and help you to disassociate from and stop identifying with that part of you which is the smoker which will enable you not only become a non smoker, but to stay a non-smoker.
