Many people who are smokers say that they want to stop smoking, but underneath it all they quite like the social aspect of smoking and the habitual nature of having a cigarette so never actually end up giving up. No matter which way you look at it, smoking is a really bad habit that costs a lot of money, takes a lot of time and can lead to all sorts of health issues, not to mention cancer so it’s probably time you looked past the fact that you enjoy the odd cigarette and start focusing on giving up for good before it’s too late. This may sound harsh, but the realities of long-term smoking are often much harsher in the long run!
When you decide to stop smoking, you need to weigh up all the pros and cons and concentrate on how much you genuinely want to give up, and to save you the trouble of nicotine patches, vapes and gum, hypnotherapy may be the answer to all of your prayers for a quick and painless transition off cigarettes.
After you have decided that stopping smoking is the right choice for you, you need to find a trained hypnotherapist that you trust, and most hypnotherapists provide a consultation session where you will both get to know each other before jumping right into the therapy for this exact reason. This way you can see if you gel with the therapist and if they understand you as a person and what you want from your hypnotherapy sessions before getting in too deep or investing too much time and money.
Giving up smoking is often a solitary experience that throws you out of your comfort zone entirely; you can no longer go for cigarettes with your friends, your daily routine is completely changed and you are often presented with opportunities to falter on your resolve and break your willpower on a daily basis; hypnotherapy can help you feel stronger because you have someone to turn to in times of stress, and the process of hypnotherapy is actually a very calming, relaxing and pleasant experience which will help you beat the cravings.
A lot of people are scared to stop smoking as they are afraid that they might become grumpy, won’t be able to go through with it long term, or that they may even start to gain weight, and hypnotherapy goes hand in hand with these fears as it can be used to treat the underlying issues that you associate with smoking to make you an all-round happier and more content person. Whether your issues are on the surface, or more deep rooted, hypnotherapy is versatile and can be used to treat multiple habits and negative thoughts at once.
