Finding it hard to quit smoking?
You’re not the only one. Smokers find it hard to stop because cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), people who stop smoking often start again because of the withdrawal symptoms.
Those who attempt to quit may feel any of the following:
- Feeling irritable, angry, or anxious
- Having trouble thinking or concentrating
- Craving tobacco products
- Feeling hungrier than usual
Quitting smoking may require several attempts. Not to mention having to rely on expensive medications such as bupropion SR, varenicline tartrate, and nicotine replacement products. Have they worked for you? Or are you experiencing the side effects?
Don’t give up yet!
The good news is that there is a way for you to get over your smoking addiction and all the evils that came along with it, in a manner that doesn’t put your health at risk.
HYPNOTHERAPY is the natural and effective solution.
Hypnotherapy to Quit Smoking
Hypnotherapy has become more popular over the years because of its natural, yet effective, approach. Many Hollywood celebrities have tried it with success! For example, Matt Damon and Ellen DeGeneres have both shared their experiences with hypnotherapy and how it helped them quit on national television.
According to Alfred A. Barrios, PhD. published in Psychotherapy Magazine (Vol.7, No.1); Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy against other modalities is as follows:
Psychoanalysis is 38% successful after 600 sessions
Behaviour Therapy is 72% successful after 22 sessions
and Hypnotherapy is 95% successful after 6 sessions.
Based on a research by Frank Schmidt published in the New Scientist Magazine (1998), it was revealed that single session hypnosis increased a smoker’s chance for success (in quitting) from 6% to 60%.
Hypnotherapy is most effective when you really want to quit.
Become a Non-smoker
Our long term memories, our habit and our beliefs are all stored in our subconscious mind. So in order to make changes, like changing our habits and our beliefs about smoking, we can only do it in the subconsious level of the mind.
Hypnosis is the only way we can have access to our subconscious mind and make those required changes.
Let us give you a glimpse on how it works:
During a hypnotherapy session, the hypnotist will guide you to induce physical and mental relaxation in yourself. Once that is achieved, you becomes more aware and more suggestible (more willing to accept suggestions for positive changes).The hypnotist then can work with you in the subconscious level to remove feelings and/or past programming that have prevented you from making the changes you always wanted (to be a non-smoker).
The hypnotist then gives you positive suggestions for changes to happen. Because all those limiting feelings and programs have been removed and you are now more suggestible, you will accept all the positive suggestions that the hypnotist gives to you and positive changes are sure to happen within you. This can help you beat the smoking habit and even some withdrawal symptoms.

Hypnotherapy is not necessarily effective for everyone, but the treatment does hold a lot of promise when it comes to helping people improve their quality of life. These claims have also been founded by several studies and experience for several years. Hypnotherapy does not replace any medical or pharmacological treatment. It is not the sole solution, but a conjunctive therapy. The results of the therapy may also vary for each individual.
