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 […]

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 […]

Smoking makes you feel safe

I had someone call me about quitting smoking cigarettes. During the course of the conversation he mentioned that he had successfully quit smoking for several years but with the death of his daughter he started to smoke again.

I could just use hypnosis to help him stop smoking cigarettes but if there is another underlying cause for smoking the chances of him going back to smoking are high. In this person’s case the deep underlying cause was grief and guilt of the death of his daughter.

 

Smoking enabled to help him stop thinking about it and it also gave him a sense […]

Tips to help you successfully quit smoking

Here are some great tips to increase the chances of you succeeding to quit smoking cigarettes.

Firstly, ensure that you are in the right mindset, you are going to stop smoking, before using hypnosis to quit smoking.

Secondly, make sure that you are fully alert and fresh before undertaking a quit smoking process with hypnosis. I recently had a truck driver who came to me after driving all night. He assured me that he was awake and alert, he wasn’t as he fell asleep during the hypnosis.

Now some may argue that it does not matter if he falls asleep as the subconscious […]

Replace smoking cigarettes with a healthy habit

I was recently visiting a friend of mine when he declared to me whilst clutching his electronic cigarette, that he had stopped smoking.

At first, I did not know what to say but I then said but aren’t you still smoking? He replied no, he wasn’t smoking cigarettes any more. When I asked him if the liquid in his electronic cigarette contained nicotine he said, yes it does and it is pure nicotine.

I was stunned and amazed to think that he felt that he had stopped smoking because he had stopped smoking cigarettes.

All he had done was replace one bad habit […]

I love what I do

The other day I pulled into the parking lot of my local shops. As I got out of my car a guy came running up to me. At first, I was a little alarmed, not sure what it was all about. The guy said, I’m really glad to see you again. I’ve been meaning to get in contact with you. It’s been six years since I saw you to stop smoking and I’m still a non-smoker, thank you.

I was blown away by this and I thought that I have the best occupation in the world.

Life must have been feeling kind […]
