The Cost of Smoking

At Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes I ask my clients when they come in for quit smoking what it costs them. This is not just from the health view but how much money it actually costs to smoke cigarettes. Most people cannot tell me. Why is this? I think it is for two reasons;
1. The cost to smoke is not seen in a lump sum. Payment is packet by packet and so the total cost is not seen.
2. People don’t want to acknowledge the cost.
The actual cost of cigarettes makes more impact in first world countries as taxation has made […]

Filters Destroy The Environment

In this blog I thought that I would give you some information about your cigarettes. I find that with my clients at Quit Smoking Expert in Capalaba if I give them a better understanding of their habit there success rate in quitting smoking cigarettes increases. As the main success factor for quitting smoking with hypnosis is you have to want to I also find that by having a better idea of smoking helps with this motivation.

In 1925, inventor Boris Aivaz patented the process of making a cigarette filter from crepe paper, with some variants including cellulose wadding. Aivaz produced the […]

It can’t be done

The other day I was speaking to another clinical hypnotherapist who said that you could not quit smoking in 60 minutes with hypnotherapy. As the Quit Smoking Expert i of course disagree. I base this on the fact that at my clinic in Capalaba I have a real success rate of about 95%. I base this statement on the follow up and research I have done with my clients.

The habit of smoking resides in the unconscious mind and by changing the programming in the unconscious mind we can help a person to quit smoking. The unconscious mind wants you to […]

Electronic cigarettes Yes or No

Electronic cigarettes are becoming more and more acceptable these days as a way to reduce or quit smoking but I have some serious concerns about the use of them.
If you look at all the cases there have been no proper studies on whether e-cigarettes are harmful or if they are beneficial. The most common factor that I can see with e-cigarettes is that they use nicotine in solution. Sure there are other mixes without nicotine but most people are using nicotine mixes.
Before working as a hypnotherapist and becoming a quit smoking expert I worked as a crop scientist worked in […]

Who Do You Trust?

Trust is an interesting concept, it can be defined as: Reliance on another person or entity. Trust starts to establish itself the moment you meet a person. You sum this up very quickly from how the person looks, speaks, how they stand and the tone of the voice. Trust then continues to build as you go along.

Hypnotherapy has a huge element of trust as quite often people think that they are doing something that is new or unknown. You are trusting the hypnotherapist to do the right thing by you.

Trust is also a two way street and not only does […]

Darn!! Started Again!

Around about 5% of the clients that come to see us at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes for quitting smoking cigarettes with hypnosis start smoking again. Why is this so? I have been doing some analysis of our clients and have come up with two main reasons why people who quit smoking with us using hypnosis start smoking again.

The first reason is that the client did not really want to quit smoking. You would think that if somebody came to see us they really did want to quit. Everybody that smokes needs to quit smoking but not everybody wants to. […]

Quit Smoking Now and Live 10 Years Longer

The effect of smoking on the skin and aging is obvious when I see clients at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba. Smokers do look older than they are.
A new study says that if women quit smoking before the age of 30 they could almost completely reverse the impact of smoking, while those aged forty could stand to add at least ten years to their life.
It may surprise you to learn that, in both the US and the UK, smoking ranks higher than obesity as the leading cause of preventable deaths.
This fact has spurred UK researchers, funded by Cancer […]

What’s Trust Got To Do With It?

If you want to go into a hypnotic trance to quit smoking you need to trust your hypnotherapist. One of the most important things to establishing trance is to trust and accept all the suggestions that your hypnotherapist gives you 100%. If you question or do not accept the suggestion then you will not go into trance. It’s fundamental in going into trance.

The other day at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba had a client and as we were talking I could see that this person saw the world as black and white and that he judged people solely […]

Why Can’t I Quit?

The other day at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba I had a client who said that he had been doing drugs such as speed and ice for 10 years and had given it up but he couldn’t quit smoking! Why is this so?

The answer lies in the fact that the habit of smoking is linked to survival where drugs aren’t. As I have said previously 99.9% of my clients start smoking to fit in. the urge to fit in is very strong because our brains think that we are in the caveman times. If you are being chased […]

E Cigarettes: Good or Bad?

Electronic cigarettes are gaining ground as people search for what they perceive is a healthier way to beat the habit of smoking. I get more and more clients at quit smoking in 60 minutes who have tried e-cigarettes in the hope of quitting smoking. The problem is that they do not quit, they just change the habit from smoking cigarettes to smoking e-cigarettes. I for one do not believe they are healthier if nicotine is involved. When are people going to wake up to the fact that nicotine is extremely poisonous and stresses your circulatory system.

 

While most researchers say e-cigarettes […]
