Quick facts:

The National Drug Strategy Household Survey (for 2013), showed smoking rate among adults was 13.3%. There is a tobacco-related death about every 28 minutes in Australia, and that is about roughly 50 deaths each day.

Effects of smoking:
The ill-effects of smoking are well known and documented—though the smoker will never admit it -making excuses, covering up, or denying the truth—anything from heart and lung diseases, poor digestion, hypertension, pulmonary disease, emphysema, strokes to cancer and many others. People who quit smoking, no doubt, report healthy savings and healthy lifestyle.

How does Hypnosis work?

Hypnosis works with the therapist giving suggestions to the unconscious mind once the client is in a hypnotic trance state. These suggestions can be direct, indirect or metaphorical. All suggestions are aimed at the client having no desire or need to smoke after the session.

For a suggestion to be accepted by the client, the client must like the suggestion. It is near impossible to have the client do anything they don’t want to. Even though they are in trance, they can still choose whether to accept any suggestion made by the therapist.

For hypnosis to be effective, the client must want to stop smoking.

The need, crave, or want for a cigarette is an emotion that comes from the unconscious. It does not come from conscious, otherwise a person would just decide not to smoke anymore – and they wouldn’t. It would be so easy for everyone to stop whenever they felt like it and they would be in complete control.

Hypnosis has a higher success rate in helping people quit smoking compared to cold turkey, nicotine replacement, nicotine gums, drugs, behaviour therapy and acupuncture. Hypnosis has a success rate higher than 85%, according to reliable studies.

The other modalities used to stop smoking do not address the reasons a person smokes – hypnosis does and hypnosis addresses the smoking triggers – that is why it is so effective.

If you really desire to stop smoking, don’t wait until you have tried all the other methods to stop smoking and failed. Call a trained hypnotherapist today and stop smoking for good.

A session, typically, requires an investment from you of approximately two hours of your time and the cost equivalent of a carton of cigarettes.

Do this exercise

Close your eyes and imagine a possible future. It hasn’t happened, but it might if you don’t change habits and direction now.

Imagine a time in the future – with you looking at an older you, dissociated from that image, say 15-20 years ahead, in which you have continued to smoke cigarettes.

Look at that you and see how their health is suffering if you fail to take this opportunity to stop now.

See and notice how that you are suffering. Do they have problems breathing? Are they tired and unfit? How badly have they aged? How rough does the skin look? Are they undergoing any kind of medical procedure?

Notice all the possible effects of not stopping now.
