Stop Smoking/Vaping

Hypnotherapy has been a great option for people wanting to give up cigarettes or vaping.  After all, it is your belief system that is keeping you smoking. You have convinced yourself that you need to smoke but the reality is that you can live your life free of cigarettes or vaping.

As long as you want to stop and ready to stop, then it is a good time to seek help

One reason people struggle to stop smoking is because of their beliefs about the benefits of smoking , eg “I smoke to relax” – that’s a popular one.  

The other reason people believe they can’t stop is due to the habits they have formed around cigarettes.  For example, that first one in the morning with your coffee, or that one at 10 am to give you an excuse to get out of the office, or the one in the evening that helps you switch off from work.  

Nicotine is not the issue, within 48 hours nicotine is out of your system; then we are just left with your beliefs around cigarettes, why you feel you need them.

I find that people who smoke have very few positive things to say about cigarettes.  I ask them what they like about cigarettes and often they struggle to say one single positive thing.  Perhaps the most common response is “they relax me”.  It is well documented that cigarettes cause anxiety.  We know that plenty of people relax without cigarettes. You can be one of those.   Of course it is possible to create new positive lifestyle habits, more in keeping with the way you now want to live – smoke free.

What are your reasons for wanting to stop:

  • To breathe more easily.
  • To be healthier for longer.
  • To see your children/grandchildren grow up.
  • So you don’t smell disgusting.
  • Because it is a waste of money.
  • Because it is unsociable.

There are plenty of reasons to stop.  If you need help to get cigarettes out of your life, then please get in touch.

My stop smoking therapy is unique and tailored to you.  I seek to obliterate your belief system around cigarettes so you recognise that you have the power to stop.  Remember, the nicotine is out of your system in 48 hours.

Just wanted to say thank you for helping me to stop smoking. I feel really positive about it and completely different to when I have tried to stop in the past. I went out at the weekend for some drinks at a friend's house and it’s like the smoking part of my brain isn’t there anymore. A few of my friends went out for a cigarette and I went with them but smoking didn’t even factor in it for me, I had no emotion about it either way which was really surprising. I can’t really articulate it very well but the best way I can explain it is, that when I am in a situation where I would usually crave a cigarette it's like I am trying to recall a dream but nothing is coming back to me, like a blank spot in my memory.
