It amazes me how often people try to resist hypnosis when they came to quit smoking. One would think that resistance would be the last thing you would do when you come to stop smoking cigarettes.Resist
Before doing the quit smoking process I always make it plain that you are to accept all of my suggestions 100% no questions asked. If you question or do not accept the suggestions then the process will not work. You can take the stance that you always question and do not just accept things. It’s your prerogative but it will not help you to stop smoking cigarettes.
The thing is that you are not going to be given suggestions that are harmful or that will make you do silly things. You are not going to be made to cluck like a chicken, that’s for stage hypnosis and quitting smoking does not fall into this.
When you watch a movie you often suspend your belief because if you didn’t you would not enjoy it. If you come to quit smoking cigarettes suspend your scepticism and accept all of the suggestions given to you.
It makes no difference to the therapist if you quit or do not quit smoking but it makes all the difference to you if you quit or don’t quit.
It makes a huge amount of sense not to resist the hypnotherapist and increase your chances of quitting smoking.
