Whether you consider yourself a social smoker or a heavy smoker, the thought of quitting can be daunting. While it certainly can be tough, it is the absolute best thing you can do for your health.
A big part of quitting smoking is letting go of the smoking routine you once had and looking at cigarettes differently. Hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment to help do this.
If you are considering hypnotherapy to quit smoking the first step is to make sure you are choosing to quit for yourself. Hypnotherapy is most effective when you really want to quit – if you are doing it because you think you ‘should’ or because a friend or family member is pushing you, you may not get the results you want.
Hypnotherapy works by putting you in a deep, relaxed state where your mind is more open to suggestion. At this point your hypnotherapist will look to change your thought patterns. For many people, just one session is enough to quit smoking, however some may benefit from a follow-up session.
