Many people stop smoking cigarettes and then start again. They may only give up for a short time or a long time and then they start smoking again. Why is this?Replace

Your habit of smoking cigarettes resides in the subconscious. When you quit smoking using willpower, patches, pills or needles you leave a gap in the subconscious mind. It is like ripping out a piece of the subconscious. The brain not like having a gap in the subconscious and so will look for a way to fill the gap.
The gap is usually filled by you going back to smoking. You can have a gap for a long time but in the end the gap will be filled. That’s why you may have someone who gives up for years and then starts smoking cigarettes again. Some people fill the gap with exercise or eating, often to excess. The point is that if the gap is not filled then you will start smoking again.
Hypnosis enables you to replace one habit with another, usually the habit of smoking is replaced with the habit of breathing fresh air. One habit is replaced with another.
Is this infallible? No because you have to want to quit smoking for it to work. People often think that if hypnosis is involved then you can be made to quit smoking. The truth is that even with hypnosis you have to want to stop smoking cigarettes for success.
