The cause and the benefit of your smoking habit reside in your subconscious mind. The reason why hypnosis is so successful in helping people to stop smoking cigarettes is that it addresses the programing in the subconscious mind.
It has been my experience that everybody starts smoking to fit in. This desire stems from the fact that there is safety in numbers and this leads to the subconscious mind thinking that smoking cigarettes is associated with safety and survival.
Interestingly as more and more people quit smoking there is now a subconscious urge to stop smoking cigarettes because you do not fit in.
The important thing is that subconsciously you have to want to quit smoking. This can come about because you realise that you do not fit in, you realise that your health is being affected etc. All in all you realise that subconsciously you are not getting a benefit from your smoking habit.
There are many ways to quit smoking but unfortunately most of them address the symptoms of the smoking habit and not the cause. Don’t get me wrong, some people do quit from these methods but the success rate is low.
Hypnosis on the whole has a high success rate in quitting smoking and that is because the root causes of the smoking habit are addressed.
