Many of us set a goal to quit smoking for the New Year. At first we go along fine with us telling ourselves that” we are not going to smoke”. As time goes by it gets harder and harder to not smoke a cigarette and eventually that little voice that tells us to smoke wins and we cave in.Change

Why does this happen? There are several reasons and one of them is that our unconscious mind cannot take in negatives. When we say we “are not going to smoke” the unconscious mind translates it to we” are going to smoke”.

You will also find that you started smoking to fit in and this has now been translated by the unconscious mind to be: by smoking it is connected with safety and survival. Your unconscious mind has been programmed to; smoking cigarettes helps with safety and survival.

The best way to quit smoking is to reprogram the unconscious mind. The habit of smoking is programmed in the unconscious mind and if you want to quit smoking you need to change this programming, preferably to a healthy habit such as breathing fresh air.

Hypnosis is probably one of the best ways to quit smoking yet it is the least recognised. Hypnosis allows you to access the programs in your mind and change them. You literally reprogram the habits of smoking to a healthy habit such as breathing fresh air.

The unconscious mind can learn extremely quickly and that is why you can quit smoking in 60 minutes.

If you really want to quit smoking I suggest that you look at hypnosis and save yourself the angst and disappointment of not being able to quit smoking cigarettes.
