The conscious mind of a smoker generally knows that smoking is a dangerous and expensive habit. It has also become quite an antisocial habit compared to what it was 20 to 30 years ago, yet a smoker’s subconscious mind just won’t let it go. It’s as if two parts within the mind are in constant conflict. Many smokers have attempted to use “willpower” and “cold turkey” methods for quitting but, in most instances, without lasting success. Hypnotherapy to quit smoking on the Gold Coast is proven to be very successful.

Often a person’s own ‘Self-talk’ can sabotage their efforts to change. For example, a smoker says to himself/herself, “I will give up smoking” or “I must give up smoking.” The word ‘will’ and the word “must” is always in the future. The words ‘give up’ denote a sense of ‘loss or sacrifice.’ To move towards your desired outcome rather than moving away from what you don’t want to happen.

The smoker will often derive a sense of comfort from having a cigarette, or smoking can operate as a kind of release valve when a person is experiencing a ‘build-up’ of stress. It can also provide an excuse to take a break or serve to keep the hands and mouth busy when under perceived social pressures.

But what if all that could stop, the relapse and that choking urge to quit smoking could fade away and you wouldn’t feel like your life depended on a stick or a pack? Hypnotherapy helps people with their goals to quit smoking. There is a lot of benefits that come with being a non-smoker. You get to enjoy healthier skin, longer life expectancy, significantly reduced the risk of having heart or lung cancer. 

Using hypnosis involves amplifying your subconscious already existing desires. Like the way, you wish you could stop smoking. There are several ways to induce hypnosis, but it isn’t like in the movies where a watch swings in your front and time flies. Instead, hypnosis causes you to focus on it. By focusing on your therapist, you can work together to bring the desire of a smoke-free day, week, month, or life to the surface. Gradually, this begins to destroy the urge to smoke.

 

Why stop smoking?

 

Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health problems and illnesses. But unfortunately, this habit not only harms the health of the smoker, but it can also hurt those around them. If you smoke around children and babies, for example, they become vulnerable to many smoking-related health problems, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and the risk of sudden death will increase.

Common diseases related to smoking include:

  • Infertility – Smoking affects fertility in both men and women, making it difficult to reproduce.

  • Lung cancer – More than eight in 10 cases of lung cancer are directly related to smoking.
  • Other cancers – This includes cancer of the mouth, throat, nose, blood, cervix and pancreas.

What Makes Hypnosis Effective For Smoking

So far we have seen that hypnosis is used as an aid for those who want to quit smoking. But what is it that makes hypnosis so effective for smokers?

  • Hypnosis helps the patient develop a new mindset 

With the help of Hypnotherapy, smokers begin to develop a different mindset regarding cigarettes. With the help of Hypnotherapy, patients can begin to see cigarettes and smoking differently. One common phrase you hear relapsed smokers use is “I like smoking; I feel I can’t just do without it.” Well, Hypnotherapy helps the patient distinguish between their needs and mere cravings. With hypnosis, a patient’s mentality is changed, and they will no longer see smoking as something they like. Thanks to hypnosis, patients wouldn’t only quit smoking, but they can learn to overcome their cravings. 

  • It helps you help yourself.

Most people believe that only a hypnotherapist can induce hypnosis. Well, this assumption is farfetched. With the help of guided meditation sessions, patients can learn to help themselves beat their addictions. By repeating certain words or phrases, patients can beat their addiction on their own. 

  • It can serve as a complementary method

One great feature of hypnosis is that it can be easily combined with other methods to increase your chances and the speed at which you become smoke free. Hypnotherapy also improves the effect of other smoking cessation methods.
