What’s your reason to Quit Smoking?

I had somebody the other day come to see me to stop smoking cigarettes. He told me that the reason he wanted to quit smoking cigarettes is that he had, had a health check and they told him if he continued to smoke cigarettes he would not be able to do his job which he loved.

Sounds like a really good reason to quit smoking, right? This is when I then asked him a really crucial question. If cigarettes were free would you still smoke them? His answer was, well if they were free I probably would because I like smoking.

Quit Smoking and Cigarettes on the Net

I had a client recently who came to me to quit smoking using hypnosis, he said he had been waiting ages to do it. When I asked him why he said that he lived in the country and this was the first time he had been able to get into the city to see me. I told him that we could have done the session to quit smoking over the internet and there was no need to see me face to face.

Believe it or not but hypnosis over the internet is very effective. This is because when doing this the […]

Imagine to Quit Smoking

Often people who come to quit smoking using hypnosis think that it is up to the hypnotherapist to make them stop smoking. The only person who can make change in your life is you.

You can help to make the process of quit smoking more powerful by imagining the ‘result you want!’ Notice I have not said visualising. Visualising is all about bringing a picture up into your mind. If you are like me, and most are, it’s really hard to bring up a clear picture in my mind.

Imagining is all about feeling and being in the event. You can imagine […]

Blame and Shame of Smoking Cigarettes

Just recently I visited Sri Lanka. I was quite surprised to see that hardly any of the local people smoked cigarettes. The group that smoked the most were overseas visitors.

I asked my guide “why” so few Sri Lankan’s smoked. He told me that several years ago the government had launched a campaign to shame and blame smokers and that it had been very effective. Whilst I don’t advocate such a program I wondered why their quit smoking campaign had been so effective.

The only thing that seemed logical was the culture of the people and the country. The government is listened […]

To Succeed you need to Engage

I had a client come to see me for quit smoking. Before we started I was careful to explain that you have to engage for the process to succeed. In other words, you have to accept all suggestions and act on them.

Not long into the hypnosis session I noticed that she was just closing her eyes but not accepting the suggestions that I was giving her. I stopped the session and then asked her what was going on for her. She told me that she was consumed about the recent death of a friend and was finding it very hard […]

I’m a failure

Recently I received a message from someone that had come to me to quit smoking. The message read, I’ve failed I’ve started smoking again can I come and see you again. I feel like such a failure.

So let’s look at this and in particular the word, fail.

It’s not fail or failure it’s simply the body giving you feedback. In this case as is often the case with smoking the subconscious was saying that it was still getting a benefit from smoking. Since the subconscious is the most powerful part of the body you will do what the subconscious wants.

The biggest […]

What’s holding you back?

Are you happy with your life? Have you achieved what you would like to? Are you doing what you love? Do you have purpose?

If not, why not?

Are you doing habits such as smoking cigarettes that are harmful to you?

If so why?

Is it because you had a bad childhood? Is it because your boss doesn’t like you? Is it life in general? It doesn’t really matter what you think it is because if you really dig deep down the only thing that is holding you back is you and the decisions you make.

That’s OK for you I hear you say but […]

Do I, or Don’t I?

I was talking to a friend of mine who was trying to decide if he should move from a small town he lives in to a big city. He was saying to me do I move, or don’t I move.

When he was talking about moving all he was talking about was the positives of moving to the big city. I interrupted him and said to him have you considered both the negatives and the positives of moving to the big city?

There was a silence and he said, you know I haven’t done that. He then went on to say that […]

And the winner, the subconscious mind!!

How often do you find yourself consciously wanting to lose weight or to quit smoking but somehow whatever you do you can’t achieve it? No matter how much you want to you can’t succeed.

You find yourself eating healthy or stop smoking for a few days and then you go back to the old habits. You lose weight for a while and then you put it back on.

The reason for this is that you are battling the subconscious mind. If you look at your mind you have a conscious and a subconscious mind. If we were to compare these minds to […]
