I’m doing a walk on the top of the highest building on the Gold Coast in Australia. I’m attached to the building by a strap and harness that can lift 2.5 tonnes; I know this because I read the label on the harness. My guide now says go to the edge hold onto the strap and lean back outward from the building. I am immediately assaulted by fear, s..t what happens if I fall? Logically this is impossible but I have fallen into the trap of fear. Playing out what could happen if I fall. I reassess and think that […]
At Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba I have been researching some of the benefits of smoking. Most people will say that there are no benefits to smoking cigarettes, however you do nothing if you do not get a benefit, hence you do get benefits.
From the age of 12 to about 25 the urge to fit in and be accepted can and will override the consequences of our actions. It is my experience that the urge to fit in will override consequences until we die. The urge to fit in and be accepted is translated by the brain as […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
