Is it Addiction or Just a Habit?
When you can’t stop without experiencing signs of withdrawal. Signs of withdrawal are irritability, anxiety, jumpiness, physical discomfort similar to getting sick, headaches, achiness, actual pain, obsessing on behavior or substance, constant and intense desire to return to the behavior or substance when withdrawn.
Are your addictions preventing you from living your life to its fullest and possibly costing you your life?
Take heart: there IS a light at the end of the tunnel and it is neither the train nor the law, but, instead, the light of freedom from bondage.

Many Addicts or People with Persistent Habits Have Been Helped with Hypnosis. You Could Be One of Them.
There are three aspects of addiction :
- the physical addiction
- the breaking of the habit
- the emotional aspects
The physical withdrawal is basically gone after some days, depending on the drug. There is wide discrepancy in the medical and addiction community as to how long it takes to change a habit. This discrepancy goes from twenty-one days to three months or even more.
However, it is the emotional components or stress-relieving aspects which are usually the most significant and the most under- treated. It is these components that are in the most in need of recovery support.
This is where hypnosis is the most helpful, providing general stress level relief, specific stress relieving techniques and different modalities to counter-act the smoking cravings that are usually the most troubling to those trying to quit.
Why standard treatment alone often doesn’t work:
Most addicts need intensive support in the first several months. The recovery rate using twelve-step programs alone is discouragingly low: 22%. And to date, twelve-step programs have the best recovery rate available. 22% recovery is a very sobering statistic. However, when hypnotherapy is combined with Twelve-Step, the success rate recovery is very high (about 87%).
How many sessions will it take?
Most issues require four to eight sessions for complete success. With drug and other substance addiction, the number of reinforcement sessions cannot be predetermined. It is recommended that the client in recovery find additional support outside the hypnosis sessions. 12-Step is a good choice but there are also other support resources. What you CAN expect is noticeable positive change after the first session.
Whatever your drug of choice, hypnotherapy makes freedom from drug addiction a reality.
- Significantly More Methadone Addicts Quit with Hypnosis. 94% Remained Narcotic Free Significant differences were found on all measures. The experimental group had significantly less discomfort and illicit drug use, and a significantly greater amount of cessation. At six month follow up, 94% of the subjects in the experimental group who had achieved cessation remained narcotic free.A comparative study of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy in the treatment of methadone addicts.Manganiello AJ.American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis 1984; 26(4): 273-9.
- Raised Self-esteem & Serenity. Lowered Impulsivity and Anger In a research study on Self-hypnosis for relapse prevention training with chronic drug/alcohol users. Participants were 261 veterans admitted to Substance Abuse Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Programs (SARRTPs). individuals who used repeated self-hypnosis “at least 3 to 5 times a week,” at 7-week follow-up, reported the highest levels of self-esteem and serenity, and the least anger/impulsivity, in comparison to the minimal-practice and control groups.

- Hypnosis For Cocaine Addiction Documented Case Study Hypnosis was successfully used to overcome a $500 (five grams) per day cocaine addiction. The subject was a female in her twenties. After approximately 8 months of addiction, she decided to use hypnosis in an attempt to overcome the addiction itself. Over the next 4 months, she used hypnosis three times a day and at the end of this period, her addiction was broken, and she has been drug free for the past 9 years. Hypnosis was the only intervention, and no support network of any kind was available. The use of hypnosis in cocaine addiction.Page RA, Handley GW.Ohio State University, Lima 45804. American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis1993 Oct;36(2):120-3
- Celebrities and other professonal use hypnosis. Many well-known celebrities, business and other professionals, as well as just plain folk have used hypnosis successfully to stop addictive behavior. Ricky Martin is one who openly shares his experience. He was homeless – sleeping in abandoned buildings and eating out of trashcans. His account of how hypnosis along with 12-Step Program and his faith saved him is inspiring. Since the foundation of all Twelve Step programs is anonymity, and many people (rightly so) do not want to make their struggles public, we respect their right to privacy.
