Hypnotherapy is a very effective tool for those people who want to quit smoking. Many people find smoking a very difficult habit to stop, and that is why hypnotherapy can create such miraculous results.
As humans we all pick up habits, and most of those habits, even if they are killing us like cigarettes, give us comfort and a sense of calm. Smoking is called a habit because it becomes an automatic response in smokers to deal with pressure by lighting a cigarette.
Hypnotherapy can remove this automatic response of reaching for a cigarette every time we face a stressful situation. Hypnotherapy can change the way we look and feel about tobacco, creating a whole new state of mind when we consider smoking, Before hypnotherapy you may have seen smoking as a source of pleasure, however, a hypnotherapist can change how you feel about smoking, and make you see the habit as the physically harmful, financially expensive and time consuming routine that it really is.
A hypnotist is not going to alter your personality or brainwash you, a hypnotist will simply create associations in your mind at a sub-conscious level, so that when you think about smoking you remember all the reasons why you want to quit. A hypnotherapist gives you greater control over the resources of your mind, so that when you get a craving for a cigarette, you become mentally stronger, instead of folding like a deck of cards.
Hypnotherapy is that simple, it summons your strongest character at the moments you need it most, instead of just supplementing the habit with nicotine peaches or other long term expensive alternatives.
It is the nicotine addiction which makes quitting smoking a very difficult challenge for most people. Hypnosis can reduce the cravings for cigarettes and can even make it so that you gain pleasure from your cravings. Every time you have an urge for a cigarette, you can feel a sense of joy, because you will associate the pleasure of overcoming your urges as greater than any smoke.
There are many techniques that hypnotherapists can employ to create lasting change in yourself. Hypnotherapy is not about changing who you are, hypnotherapy is about having all your strongest internal resources available when you need them most.
