Stopping smoking doesn’t have to be a pain in the butt

I’ve seen an article circulating on Twitter warning people about the horrible withdrawal symptoms they will get when they quit smoking. Aside from giving negative hypnotic suggestions which may create a self-fulfilling prophecy, in my experience this is JUST NOT TRUE.  I’ve helped 2 pack-a-day smokers quit and they had no physical withdrawal symptoms the next day or the next week.  They almost all report they slept better the night after our hypnosis session than they have in years. 


If nicotine were truly addictive, people would be craving a fix every four hours or so and waking up in the middle of the night to smoke.  The true cause of the “addiction” is the habitual daily use of tobacco to distract from uncomfortable feelings or situations.  This goes on frequently throughout the day so it is viewed as an “addiction more difficult to break than heroine.”


 A well trained, competent hypnotist can help you find the causes of the smoking habit, not just treat the behavior.  By getting to the source of the problem you can become a calm, comfortable non-smoker who feels more peaceful in all areas of your life.  


What’s your addiction? Food? Work? Shopping? Not speaking up for yourself? The answers to your freedom lie in your subconsious mind.
