Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy can be effective in helping you to stop smoking because it deals with the underlying reason why you crave cigarettes. While many of us believe that we are in control of our lives and that the conscious decisions we make are of our own choosing it just is not the case.
Our subconscious mind plays a much bigger role in our lives than a lot of us would like to believe. Think about it for a moment. Why is it that we assume certain roles or act differently around some people as opposed to others?
The role we play at work is often quite different than the one we assume at home. For example, a man who is a boss at work might be married to a domineering woman and is the one who gets bossed around at home. The personality change this man undergoes at the end of the work is not something that he consciously decides to do. His subconscious mind does it for him based past experiences, cultural surroundings, upbringing, etc.
We all do this in one way or another in our own lives. These identity shifts are caused by emotional triggers. These triggers cause us to lead most of our lives on autopilot:
*Our blood pressure automatically rises when hear that our mother-in-law is coming for a visit.
*We can’t possibly have pumpkin pie without whipped cream!
* We lash out at people we love when they “push our buttons” – whether they do on purpose or not.
Smoking addiction works the same way because it is a response to an emotional trigger. This triggers can be set off by waking up in the morning, getting in your car and driving, finishing dinner, drinking coffee, or by stress anxiety and pressure of all kinds.
Redirect Your Behavior
Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy can help lessen and sometimes eliminate your response to these triggers. It enables new thought patterns to be created at the subconscious level. This in turn helps to redirect your behavior towards more healthful and productive activities. The temptation will still be there, but the hypnosis will make it easier to resist the urge to smoke.
Can Hypnosis Work On Its Own?
Although there is some debate as to whether Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy can help a person quit smoking entirely on its own. According to a 2007 article in Science Daily, “Hospitalized patients who smoke may be more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnotherapy than patients using other smoking cessation methods.” However, the article points out that according to Dr. Alvin V. Thomas, President of the American College of Chest Physicians, states, “The results of this study and many others confirm that using a multi modality approach to smoking cessation is optimal for success.”2
If you have tried everything on the market to help you end your nicotine addiction and have failed then perhaps Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy can help you. Try either alone or along with some other form of Nicotine Replacement Treatment. What do you have to lose.
