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:
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.
