Stop smoking - non-smoker

Stop smoking

Let your subconscious mind help you to quit

Giving up smoking can increase and enhance the quality of your life and many smokers now accept the very real threat of an early death or significant reduction in the likelihood of enjoying good health unless they quit.

According to the British Heart Foundation (BHF) “smokers die, on average, about ten years younger than non-smokers and smokers have nearly twice the risk of having a heart attack compared with people who have never smoked.” They go on to say that “stopping smoking after a heart attack reduces your risk of having another heart attack and improves your chances of surviving a heart attack, and stopping smoking before surgery, especially before heart surgery, reduces the risk of serious complications.”

We all know there are health, financial and social benefits to quitting, but to become a non-smoker for life you must have a reason to quit, and it must be a reason that is hugely important and significant to you. You are unlikely to be successful if you are told you must stop by someone else, unless of course, you really do want to commit to becoming a non-smoker.  

How I help

I offer an intense one-off hypnotherapy session covering: 

  • why and when you started smoking
  • what smoking has meant to you and your reasons for quitting now
  • how the chemicals in cigarette smoke actually assist the body to go into fight or flight mode rather than encourage relaxation
  • how your body initially reacts to the nicotine, tar and other poisons inhaled whilst smoking
  • how your subconscious mind initially gives signals alerting you to the danger of these chemicals 
  • how cravings develop 
  • resetting your habits and behaviours to their default setting of being a non-smoker

You will be asked to complete a questionnaire and provide as much information as possible ahead of time so the session can be tailored to meet your specific needs.  

Are you motivated and ready to quit?

Picture a scale running from 1 to 10, with 1 meaning not motivated at all and 10 meaning fully motivated. Where are you on this scale? If it’s less than 8, think through the reasons why as the timing or reasons may not yet be quite right or sufficient for you commit to quitting.

Non-smokers tend to:

  • have better sleeping patterns and more restful sleep
  • experience an improved sense of smell and taste
  • have increased ability to exercise without feeling as breathless
  • feel accepted and in control
  • look younger and feel fitter
