How to Stop Smoking Using Hypnosis

People wanting to give up smoking have often tried every method imaginable. Millions of people a year even try quitting without any assistance, but unfortunately, only 3% actually succeed.

With the cost of 20 cigarettes varying between £8.80 and £13.50 (as of Oct 21) and the steep price of living, your reason might be financial or health reasons for giving up smoking. 

I often get asked. How can hypnosis help in stopping smoking? I’ll explore how hypnotherapy for smoking works and how you can use it to stop smoking today.

Hypnotherapy is a psychotherapeutic therapy used to treat mental and physical conditions.

Hypnosis has been around for centuries and has been used to treat various issues, both big and small. One of the most common applications of hypnosis is helping people to stop smoking. 

Clinical studies have shown that hypnosis is an effective way to quit smoking, and it’s also a more comfortable experience than using traditional methods like nicotine patches or gum.

How does hypnotherapy for smoking work?

Hypnosis works by accessing the subconscious mind, which is where the urge to smoke is stored. I will help you to access this part of your mind and change the way you think about smoking. You will no longer feel the need to smoke cigarettes, and you will be able to overcome any cravings that you may experience.

Hypnosis is effective because, as it turns out, smoking isn’t just an addiction to nicotine, but rather a complex behavioural issue that is eliminated when all aspects are taken into account. It helps us overcome addictions and compulsive behaviour.

When you are hypnotised, you are in complete relaxation and focused attention. In this state, your mind is open to suggestions.  This state allows the therapist to communicate directly with the subconscious mind. The hypnotherapist will suggest that you are no longer addicted to cigarettes and that you can easily stop smoking. The therapist will help you identify the thoughts and feelings associated with smoking and then help you change them.

There are several different ways that hypnosis can help people to stop smoking. It can help change the smoker’s mindset to no longer see cigarettes as a source of pleasure or relaxation. It can also help address any underlying psychological issues that may contribute to the addiction.

The areas the stop smoking hypnotherapy sessions cover are as follows:

  • Quitting smoking and staying stopped
  • Navigating the high-risk situations
  • The bullying nature of smoking
  • What does success look like
  • The big smoking con
  • Benefits of being a non-smoker
  • Replacement of the stress management role that smoking played
  • Working out your particular habit loop and replacement of that with a healthier behaviour

The sessions are tailored, so some areas may not be relevant. We will be able to ascertain the areas of focus during your FREE consultation
