I sometimes get people who just not seem to be able to quit smoking. They try everything and yet they still cannot quit.Past
Often the reason for this is the connection of their smoking with stress and trauma of the past. If your smoking is linked to this then you will not stop smoking cigarettes.
Let’s say in the past a person has had a serious accident and abuse. If the brain does not turn these incidents into a memory then the person is stuck in flight, fright or freeze. Being in a constant state of this manifests itself as stress, anxiety, depression and many other symptoms.
They smoke and the subconscious mind associates their smoking with a feeling of safety. When they smoke their feelings of anxiety reduce and it helps to cope. In other words, a person is smoking because of past unresolved stress and trauma.
If you are in this position and want to quit smoking cigarettes, then you will need to resolve your past stress and trauma.
I have found the use of hypnosis to be very safe, fast and effective in resolving events of the past. For past stress or trauma to be resolved the body has to know that it is safe and that it is over and that you have power over the events that have been controlling you. You are the victor not the victim!
You do this before quitting smoking and your chances of success are improved dramatically, if you don’t then you will not stop smoking, it’s as simple as that.
