Isn’t it time for you to quit smoking?
You already know the health effects of smoking. This has been all over the media for years. You probably don’t need convincing that cigarettes are hazardous to your health and the health of your loved ones.
How to stop smoking – hypnosis may help
Struggling sucks. There is enough in life to struggle over, quitting smoking should not be one of them. Hypnosis makes stopping cigarettes much easier.
Hypnosis for Quitting Smoking Works
Aren’t you tired of wasting money on nicotine gum, patches, e-cigs and other smoking cessation products that don’t seem to work?
A recent study found that 70% of American smokers want to quit but only a mere 6% were successful in doing so in the last year. If this sounds like a familiar scenario, you’ll be glad to hear that hypnosis has been proven a safe and effective way to help smokers kick the habit once and for all.
Why Quitting Can Seem So Hard
- Fear of withdrawal symptoms.
- Not having a crutch to deal with daily stress and anxiety.
- Fear of weight gain.
- Cravings might never go away.
- Lack of motivation to stop.
Hypnosis has helped many by reducing the fear and the discomfort.

Three Important Factors When Trying To Quit
- Addiction to nicotine. One of the biggest hurdles faced when trying to quit smoking is the addiction to nicotine. Scientists have found nicotine to be as addictive as heroin, cocaine, and amphetamines. A single tobacco cigarette may contain anywhere from 8 mg to 20 mg of this potentially dangerous chemical — and that’s not even taking into account the other 599 addictive chemicals that Big Tobacco companies add to their cigarettes.
- Habit change and associations. Many people smoke out of habit and/or association with other activities. These associations may be while driving, taking breaks, after sex or eating, or just talking. These associations wire together in the brain. These associations have to be disconnected in the brain.
- Emotional reasons. Do you smoke to distract yourself from daily annoyances, reduce stress, or to distract from boredom? Or to accomplish the illusion of “calming yourself down (we know that after the first hit of the nicotine, it is a stimulant)? Or for the other illusion: to give yourself a boost of energy (we know that smoking is an assault in the form of poison on the whole body)? Or is it the biggest hook of all: to ease feelings of loneliness or anger.
YOUR OLD PAL “CIGGIE”
Your pal “ciggie” is there for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in the rain, snow, dark of night. You’ve long forgotten that cigarettes do not provide you with any real benefits, however. It is only your false beliefs that keep you hooked. Think about it and read the facts.
Why We Don’t Want Children To Pick Up The Habit
While rates of cigarette smoking have declined in recent years, it remains the world’s leading cause of preventable death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. An estimated 443,000 people die from smoking-related disease and illness each year. To put that number into perspective, roughly one in five deaths in the United States are attributed to smoking.
Some people assume that smoking is only bad for your lungs, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Granted, smoking is among the worst activities that you could do in terms of lung health, but this nasty habit affects nearly every organ of the body.
It increases your risk of stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, throat cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, bodily inflammation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), infertility, gum disease, tooth decay and more. The good news is that once you stop, your body may begin to heal itself. The CDC reports that within just 2 to 5 years of kicking the habit, a smoker’s risk of stroke may drop to roughly the same risk level as a nonsmoker.
You KNOW the truth. When you become a non-smoker, food could taste better, your mouth could taste and smell better, clothes and hair could no longer smell like an ashtray, no more burns in clothing, car seats or furniture, and no more dirty looks in public!

Are you finally ready to quit smoking?
- Are you tired of the high cost of cigarettes? According to an article published by Time, smoking could cost you between $1 million and $2 million over the course of your lifetime.
- Are you tired of the addiction, and the constant need to smoke? Cigarettes are highly addictive, with many smokers experiencing physical withdrawal symptoms if they don’t get their fix.
- Do you have a smoker’s cough? Smokers are naturally more susceptible to lung problems, often creating a persistent cough that’s rightfully known as a “smoker’s cough.”
- Are you afraid that you stink of cigarettes? If you smoke, you’ll probably smell like it — and no one wants to smell like cigarettes.
- Is the inconvenience of being a smoker wearing you down? Constantly worrying about whether or not you have cigarettes and a lighter can take its toll on smokers, both physically and emotionally.
- Have you tried and failed to quit using other methods? If you answered “yes” to this question, then perhaps you should try hypnosis.
Hypnosis May Help
Hypnosis may reduce thoughts and desires to smoke. You’ll be amazed at how easy it may be to breathe away all thoughts of cigarettes and have them melt away into comfortableness. Or to see how easily your mind could turn to other things and you just “forget” to smoke.
While other methods like nicotine patches and gum only trade for one addiction for another, many smokers have found that hypnosis helps smoking cravings fade from their minds so that they no longer feel the desire to smoke. What would that be worth to you?
Smoking Affects You AND Those Around You
Smoking is a habit that takes approximately 10-15 years off your life. But it could also affect your friends, family, coworkers, and others with whom you surround yourself. The American Cancer Society (ACS) states that secondhand smoke contains 7,000 different chemicals, at least 70 of which have been known to cause cancer. And because nonsmokers aren’t used to these chemicals, exposure appears to have a stronger impact. Whether you light up at home, work, or even while walking around the neighborhood, you are essentially exposing nonsmokers to all of these harmful chemicals.
Take action on your own behalf today. Don’t you owe it to yourself and your family? You’ll never find a smoker who is happy to be a smoker.
Wouldn’t you like to become a non-smoker today? Wouldn’t you like to become that person who used to smoke but who has lost all desire to smoke? Easily and without effort. Are you ready to lose that unhealthy, expensive habit?
Hypnosis is endorsed by Many Professional Medical Organizations
The British Medical Association, the American Medical Association, and the National Institute of Health approve hypnosis for clinical use. Additionally, clinical hypnotherapy is used in-house at Harvard University Medical Center, Stanford University, Kaiser Permanente, UCLA, and the University of Washington Harborview Burn Center to mention only a few.
