Quit Smoking Hypnosis Clinic
Has your latest attempt to quit smoking failed? Do you believe all the rumors about nicotine addiction? Has yet another resolution gone up in smoke?
Considering that the average packet of cigarettes costs $22, with a 20-a-day habit you could be wasting $154 a week or $660 in one month. Over a year the cost is $8,030 and in a decade it’s ten times that! This means that in a lifetime of smoking, or 20 years, you could be wasting as much as $160,600.
This is just the financial cost and it doesn’t even take into account the damage smoking does to overall health, or the damage inflicted onto those around you by harmful second-hand smoke. Smoking can also impact your reputation in the eyes of others, especially those who look up to you as a role model.
Surely this is no way to spend your time or your money? Wouldn’t you rather spend those thousands on better things rather than watching them go up in smoke?
Imagine a life with more energy, waking up each day feeling healthier and breathing fresh, clean air. Picture what you could do with all that money – you could improve your home, see the world, buy that special item you’ve always wanted, even put a deposit on a house.
Did you know you can recoup your expenses in just over a fortnight, if you currently spend $22 a day on cigarettes?
Just how many times you attempted to quit?
You have probably tried gum, tablets, patches, or even going cold turkey, all without true success! This could be because many treatments that aim to stop smoking simply deal with the physical cravings.Attempting to quit with sheer willpower can be especially challenging and whether you returned to smoking after a few days or months, it’s clear that relying solely on the conscious mind is not the path to a smoke-free life for the majority of people.
Why does it seem so hard to quit smoking and stay that way?
You have probably heard the horror stories – that you become “addicted” to smoking which is what makes it so hard and the cravings so intense. However nicotine leaves the system within 36 hours of smoking and so this “addiction” is not physical after this initial period.
In fact, the craving for nicotine is a psychological habit which stems from your subconscious mind, the part of your mind that controls habits and automatic behaviors. You may think you truly want to quit smoking but there could be a part of your subconscious that is not willing to let go.
Smoking may have had some purpose for you in the past. Perhaps it helped you to fit in with friends, or gave you something to with your hands while you were nervous? Some people liken a cigarette to a comforting friend who is always there, and then there are those who tend to smoke while drinking at social occasions.
Whatever the reason for smoking, Hypnosis can make it easier to quit. This is known as The Mind Factor: In order for there to be a permanent change in how you act, first something must change in your subconscious.
The subconscious mind is exactly where Hypnosis specializes. Hypnotherapy – the practice of hypnosis and therapy combined – which involves entering a pleasant natural stage of hypnosis known as the Alpha level, can help by combining the conscious and subconscious minds so that they may work together.
Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking.
Hypnotherapy can also aid other issues tied to your smoking. Cravings and weight gain are two common symptoms that deter many people, as can fear of being isolated from your fellow smokers. Everybody has a fear of being the odd one out. Hypnotherapy can assist with resolving all of these problems and many more.
This is what makes Hypnotherapy the easiest and most effective way to quit smoking.
