Smoking cigarettes or using tobacco in other forms is bad for your health, and quitting cold turkey isn't easy. There are many ways you can reduce the urge to smoke and make smoking easier to quit, but it takes dedication and a lot of self-control to do so.
Can hypnosis help? Hypnotherapy can be used for many things, from helping people overcome phobias to aiding in weight loss. Hypnosis is believed to put people in a trance, or a more relaxed state of mind, which can help them be more receptive to change, advice, and other therapy advice. Will it help you? Learn if hypnosis can be just what you're looking for to get your smoking addiction under control.
You've tried everything else
Have you tried all other types of smoking cessation products to no avail? This can include anything from prescription medication, nicotine patches or gum, to group forums and counseling. Hypnosis is something you can consider to help you get rid of smoking for good, especially if you have an open mind and are willing to attend the sessions. How many sessions you need to have hypnosis for quitting smoking is dependent upon how receptive you are in your sessions, how well they are working to help you stop smoking, and your dedication to quitting in the first place.
You're ready to be completely done with nicotine
Hypnosis is best for patients who want to make a complete change in their nicotine and cigarette addiction. Hypnosis may not be as effective on people who just want to kick back on the habit or who aren't fully committed to stopping smoking entirely. This is because the point of hypnosis is to connect your body and mind to the same idea, so if you still have nicotine in your system and are still smoking regular even though you're taking hypnosis therapy, you may cancel out your therapy entirely and not get the results you want. Or, you might have a harder time benefiting from your sessions because you're still addicted to nicotine each time.
You have to believe in hypnotherapy in the first place to really benefit from your sessions. Your hypnosis coach will help you get the most out of your experience so you have a great chance at quitting smoking for good.
Like all other therapies, hypnosis works best when the patient is a willing participant. This means you need to do your best to participate in each and every session, clear your mind, and follow all advice of your hypnotherapist. Contact a hypnotherapy service for more information.
