How it works

Quit Smoking with the Help of Hypnosis and NLP

Smoking is a global habit not limited to age, gender or social status. It costs health care systems billions globally through smoking related illness and disease and although many people are very aware of the disadvantages and health hazards of smoking, they still continue to smoke. One reason that makes it difficult for people to quit is the incorrect belief that they are addicted to nicotine. If not equipped with the right information and assistance such as hypnotherapy an individual may become a bit grumpy when quitting. This is not the same as the physical malfunction and mental suffering that occurs when one withdraws from an addictive substance such as Heroin or Morphine. It is also why patches and gum attempts often fail (the body is receiving higher doses of nicotine but an individual is still driven to smoke).Probably the most significant reason people still smoke is that smoking is a thoroughly practiced, deeply ingrained habit. Think about how many times you put a cigarette to your mouth in one day. Maybe 100, 150 or even 200 times? What else does one do so often? To put it simply- Habits are controlled by the subconscious. Even if the conscious mind knows smoking is bad and wants to quit, the conscious mind doesn’t control habits so change can be difficult.

Hypnotherapy offers a solution for this obstacle and unlike all other quit smoking aids it is free of side effects. During hypnosis a client is induced into a state of deep relaxation.  In this state a client has heightened concentration, focusing only on the hypnotist’s voice. In this state the conscious mind is suppressed and the subconscious mind open. The therapist can then suggest ideas, benefits and lifestyle adaptations of being a non-smoker which become firmly planted. Hypnotherapy assists both the conscious and subconscious mind to work together towards the same outcomes.

 NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study of how to integrally and linguistically affect a person’s neurology in order to achieve desired outcomes.

NLP assists to identify a client’s communication preferences so the most effective language patterns can be used. This ensures a client is more receptive and can identify with the suggestions to quit and remove the habit of smoking for good. NLP also assists with setting aside limiting beliefs associated with smoking and quitting cigarettes. NLP can anchor new positive states associated with being a non-smoker and it is used to generate new healthier behaviors and assist in identifying and removing triggers making it easy to quit smoking. In addition NLP can instill new coping mechanisms/ positive ways to behave if a client links smoking to stress.

When hypnotherapy is used in conjunction with NLP techniques it provides a comprehensive system that can reeducate the mind.
