Hypnotism to stop smoking is an excellent way to end your smoking habit. The success rates with hypnotism are possibly double that of the patch and gum.You can also use hypnosis together with other stop smoking programs to achieve even better results.
A truly successful smoking cessation program needs to include several basics:
It needs to provide effective psychological therapy and behavior modification therapy, to change the way you think about your smoking habit. Hypnosis has proven very helpful in modifying habits, even those that are deeply ingrained. In fact, multiple-session hypnosis has a 66% success rate at helping people quit smoking, higher than any other smoking cessation method available. It needs to offer a powerful boost in confidence, motivation, and strength — so you have the courage and commitment to stick to your goals even when the going gets tough. Hypnosis offers the key to unlocking the reserves of strength in your unconscious mind, so you can attack your goals with mind, body, and soul. It needs to explore solutions for dealing with nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Hypnosis works well for this. A comprehensive program will also discuss other strategies.
Hypnosis can create a true non-smoker, free of the craving for cigarettes that can still plague people who quit through drugs or other methods. Until you are free of the desire for cigarettes, you are not truly a non-smoker! Hypnosis can remove the cravings that are left behind after using these other methods, as well.
Multiple studies have shown that using hypnosis to quit smoking works in a high percentage of cases-as high as 66%. While hypnosis may not be for everybody it can aid in reducing stress, which is one of the reasons many smokers report that they smoke in the first place.
