A combination of Hypnotherapy and NLP has been proven to be the most effective anti smoking treatment. This one-off treatment will help to increase the willpower needed to stop smoking, reduce nicotine cravings and break the emotional ties to smoking. Both Hypnotherapy and NLP directly address the psychological triggers and cravings that make quitting so difficult. This allows you to develop a comfortable and smoke free daily routine.
When many smokers read the terrifying health facts about smoking their first reaction is not to give up but to light up! How can this be?
We all have habits. Some habits are so well ingrained that they feel like they are part of us. Trying to change any habit can cause disruption and personal distress.
If you are a smoker it can feel as though your habit is here to stay. Giving up smoking can feel like an impossible task Even terrifying statistics don’t seem enough to motivate you to quit. For example it is common knowledge that:
- About half of all smokers will die as a result of their habit
- Smokers in their 30s and 40s have five times the amount of heart attacks
- 40 cigarettes a day costs approximately £3,000 per year
Everyone knows that the drug nicotine makes smoking addictive. This is not the real reason that smoking is hard to give up. Kicking nicotine addiction is about as unpleasant as having a cold and after less than three weeks the addiction to nicotine is over. Most smokers have given up for more than three weeks – and then started again. Why does this happen?
Smoking is habit forming – the nagging need for nicotine gives us hundreds of little triggers that remind us it is time to have another cigarette. When the addiction has gone these triggers remain. It is these triggers – and the cravings they cause- that make quitting forever so difficult. This is also why people who try using nicotine gum or patches still crave for a cigarette.
