How to Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy in Brighton
We’d all like to be healthier and wealthier and as a smoker there’s one simple solution that will not only drastically improve your health, but also your bank balance. Smoking a packet of cigarettes a day costs on average £2,792 per year! It also significantly increases your risks of developing cancer, heart disease and more.
Many smokers tell me that they haven’t got the willpower to quit, but they must have had some determination to start smoking in the first place as very few enjoy their first cigarette! Besides, if you have to use willpower to stop it usually means that the desire isn’t really there at all. Perhaps you just feel as though you should stop for the sake of your health or because your family are giving you a hard time over your habit, rather than actually wanting to quit.
The Problem with stopping smoking
Believe it or not the physical addiction to nicotine is the easiest problem to overcome, this is why so many nicotine replacement products don’t work in the long term. They only serve the purpose of feeding the belief that you can’t live without nicotine and this is simply not true.
Rationally you know that stopping smoking is the sensible path but there is part of you that seeks reasons or excuses to carry on down the old path. This emotional link to smoking results in you finding reasons why you should continue with the habit, such as “my life is too stressful”, “I don’t want to gain weight”,” I enjoy smoking” etc. In this battle between the rational and emotional parts of the mind there is usually only one winner! But there is an easier way….
The Solution to stopping smoking successfully
The permanent solution to stopping smoking doesn’t involve short term fixes like willpower or nicotine replacement. Instead you need a natural approach to ridding nicotine from your system and a belief that you can happily live without it.
You need to think differently about smoking and challenge the association between smoking and drinking, smoking and driving or coffee and a cigarette for example.Finally you need to believe that you can be a non-smoker and ensure your subconscious doesn’t sabotage your progress by defining you as a smoker and working against you. This is what The Spence Practice stop smoking programme does for you and it only takes 2 sessions over a 7 day period to rid you of the habit.
The Spence Practice smoking cessation method has been ‘fine tuned’ and developed over the last 20 years. “I have worked with smokers for two decades and during this time I have helped thousands to quit with this natural and highly effective combination of mind coaching and behavioural change”. (Andrew Spence)
