Quit Smoking Worldwide

Quit Smoking Worldwide

One thing that I love about helping people to quit smoking worldwide is that I get to meet people from all sorts of places and backgrounds.

Just recently I had someone come from Mongolia to stop smoking cigarettes. He was based in Australia but was working on a mine in Mongolia. Another lady came to quit smoking cigarettes, she was born in Harbin when it was administered by Russia. She had come to Australia at the age of 12 with only one word of English. Yet another gentleman who came to see me to quit smoking cigars was an artist in […]

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 […]

Hypnosis, an excellent way to stop smoking

Hypnosis, an excellent way to stop smoking

I recently received this from someone who I helped to stop smoking cigarettes.

Before I came to you I was smoking 30 cigarettes plus a day. I had been smoking for 30 years and I was sceptical about hypnosis. It’s now three years later and I’m still a non-smoker and I have not had any cravings from the moment you used hypnosis to help me to quit smoking. Thank you.

Wow what a great pick me up for the day!

The problem with smoking cigarettes is that the habit tricks the unconscious mind into thinking that smoking is associated with safety and survival. […]

Look to the future and stop smoking

Let’s face it we all now know that smoking is not good for us from a health point of view. One of the things that doesn’t help is that the effect of smoking cigarettes on your health only starts to become apparent from your mid 30’s onward.

This often means that you can smoke for 10 to 15 years without thinking that smoking is destroying your health. Most people that come to me to quit smoking are 35 and over. They can feel the effect that smoking is having on their health and they worry about what it will do to […]

I really want to

I had someone come to me recently to quit smoking. He said that he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and that he wanted to stop smoking cigarettes.
I said to him, if you have terminal cancer why do you want to quit smoking? He replied that he just wanted to quit the habit. It had nothing to do with health, he just wanted to quit smoking.
From this point, I knew that when I helped him quit with hypnosis it would be very, very successful. Why’s that I hear you ask. The answer is that as with all things in life […]

Quit Smoking, Lose a Friend

Quiet often when someone comes to me to quit smoking they tell me that it is the only thing that is always there, it’s like a friend.

The problem is that this friend is slowly but surely killing them! It sounds dramatic but we know that smoking destroys your health and exposes you to a horrible way to die. You would not make friend with someone that would slowly but surely kill you, but that’s your friendship with smoking.
Let’s look a bit further at this relationship that people have with smoking. I think that you will agree that most people want […]

Quit Smoking – Address the cause

A lot of treatments to quit smoking address the symptoms, smoking, rather than the cause of why you smoke. To successfully stop smoking cigarettes, you need to break the cause of why you smoke.
Our brains can be quiet primitive, especially when it comes to survival. In the days when we were cavemen and women the chances of survival were improved if you stuck together in a group. People start smoking to fit in. it might be because friends are smoking, family is smoking or workmates.
When you have your first cigarette the conscious mind goes: hey this is cool I’m fitting […]

Why Did You Start Smoking?

I have been using hypnosis for many years to help people quit smoking. In all that time, everyone has started smoking to fit in.
The subconscious mind wants to keep you safe and healthy, unfortunately the habit of smoking tricks the subconscious mind into thinking that smoking cigarettes is associated with safety and survival.
When you are in danger your chances of survival increase if you are in a group. This is why animals, fish and even insects hang around in groups. If the people or people that you look up to smoke cigarettes, then subconsciously you feel left out and thus […]

Can I trust You To Quit Smoking?

The other day at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes I had an email from a lady who said that if she came to me to quit smoking cigarettes, could she trust me?
That is a really important question because if there is no trust then the process of stopping smoking will not work. In fact, when you think about it, it doesn’t matter what it is because without trust the process will not work. In a lot of cases people who come to see me have never experienced hypnosis before and therefore need to trust that I will do the right […]

Quit Smoking – accept suggestions

For any hypnosis to succeed in helping a person to quit smoking the client must be prepared to accept suggestions 100% no questions asked.

You have two minds; the conscious and the unconscious. The conscious mind is the questioning part of the mind and analyses things. The unconscious mind is where all the patterns are and it is like a 5-year-old, it will accept things with no question.
In hypnosis, the conscious mind is put to one side so that the hypnotist can give suggestions to the unconscious mind. If you question the suggestions being given to you then the conscious mind […]
