Over 80% of the smoking habit is a deeply embedded behaviour pattern that is triggered by a known or unknown pattern, circumstance or behaviour. I am sure you have noticed that willpower and discipline alone are not usually able to overcome this habit.
Hypnosis allows you to understand and change these habits and responses to circumstance in the parts of your subconscious that you can not access with logic, willpower or discipline.
It is important that you actually want to stop smoking and are 100% committed to the process. The stronger your personal desire to stop, the easier it will be for you to stop. If you are wanting to stop because of other influence like family or friends, you need to please re consider your commitment to the process.
The hypnosis sessions are highly personalised, and you need to allow a minimum of 90 minutes per session. A minimum of two sessions are required spaced one week apart.
Now that you have decided to quit smoking and are willing to follow the simple three tier - three week system, you can beat the smoking habit for good!
Some information on the smoking behaviour;
The "Smoking Addiction"
Smoking is a regularly re enforced habit that is linked to emotional triggers. The addiction of Nicotine is usually short lived and starts to wane after about 40 minutes.
A smoking addiction is clearly in the mind and not the body. Evidence of this can be seen when one compares the symptoms of other non chemical addictions like gambling.
Psychological effects of smoking
The smoking habit is often linked to every day and or lifestyle events - Eating, coffee breaks, relaxing with a glass of wine or hot beverage. Smokers miss the act of smoking at these times. Link in to this the "rush" experienced form the effects of nicotine and we see a powerful chemical and emotional habit being formed and they are enforced every time a smoker engages in the habit at these set times.
Nicotine Cravings and Withdrawal
Each nicotine craving lasts from between 3 to 5 minutes. The intensity of these cravings decreases rapidly over time, and can cease completely after about four days. These mild withdrawal symptoms can either be used as a motivator or can be reduced by hypnotherapy.
Irritability, mild depression and anxiety are closely connected to the bodies detoxification process, and should lesson within a few weeks.
The much hyped "Nicotine Addiction" is formed with the simultaneous administration of the chemical and the emotional re enforcement (positive or negative) of the behaviour from the environment in which the action of smoking takes place.
Nicotine acts primarily on the brains reward system - the metabolic dopamine system as well as stimulating the release of corticosteroids and endorphins that helps to reduce anxiety, induce a feeling of euphoria and more efficient information processing. This however is short lived and part of the craving is the need to re experience these elevated awareness levels.
